Week of November 18th – November 22nd
Message from The Head Of School
Among my favorite days during our school year is the upcoming Grandfriends' Day on Tuesday, November 26. I am a big fan of the rituals of Thanksgiving, and this day at Craig where "Grandfriends" of our students come to campus and actively participate in a morning of activities. My hope is that as many of our students enjoy the day with their Grandfriend(s) as possible.
