REMINDER OF THE WEEK
Graffiti on Campus
We have had a series of graffiti incidents in the Upper School Library this week which resulted in the maintenance staff having to remove inappropriate drawings and words from the wooden paneling wall on the 2nd floor of the Library.  Then sometime later, a student wrote on the paneling again. Vandalism is a serious breach of the school’s behavior expectations and Core Values. We are hoping that the students who had a lapse in their judgment will reflect on their behavior and self-correct. The area is now being monitored by CCTV.
