Thinks & Thoughts,
Dr. Luci Higgins
Last Wednesday November 5th, the Middle and Upper School students experienced a chapel like none other. As we all gathered in Faith Hall to celebrate Veteran’s Day, we stood among true hero’s. We were blessed to be in the presence of 6 veterans that served in 3 wars (WWII,Korea and Vietnam). What a privilege it was to honor them for their service to our great nation.

Christina Farley – Library Author Visit
Christina Farley, author of the Gilded series, was born and raised in upstate New York. As a child she loved to explore, which later inspired her to jump on a plane and travel the world. She taught at international schools in Asia for ten years, eight of which were in the mysterious and beautiful city of Seoul, Korea, that became the setting of Gilded and Silvern. Currently she lives in Clermont, FL with her husband and two sons—that is, until the travel itch whisks her off to a new unknown. For more details, check out her website at www.christinafarley.com.
