2) Early Childhood families will get an email from Ms. Fanti next week explaining how they will get their jewel hunt jewels.


Open mic returns Friday night at 5pm

This evening is always magical, and the April Open Mic - the first online one ever! - pulled this community together in delightful ways.

Early Childhood and Lower School music next Thursday

The Early Childhood and Lower School concert is Thursday, June 4th at 5:30pm

All are welcome! Families are encouraged to set up a picnic in their living rooms and watch every class share a few songs.

A request from Mr. Griffin

For the next year or two (at least), people will want to know: what happened at Gordon during the spring of 2020?

It would be great to have a library of video from the Online Learning Community to help tell that story.

I have many images and videos from special guests and events. But I need more of the day-to-day.

I want to invite you to send me short (minute or less) video snapshots of students:

* interacting with teachers or classmates over Zoom
* quietly working alone, on a screen or off screen
* engaged in schoolwork or a hobby with a parent, caregiver or sibling
* participating in Field Day activities, bikeathon or other community activities
* whatever else you think gives a taste of the experience this spring

I welcome things from earlier in the spring, or from these next two weeks.

Indoors and outdoors, sitting and standing, at the kitchen table or lying on the floor... whatever you're comfortable with, I'd love to have it.

Please DO film things horizontally, wider rather than longer.

Please DO NOT share anything that I would need to keep private. The hope is that we'll be able to make a short video to share with grandparents, alumni, visitors, etc.

Things can be shared via ggriffin@gordonschool.org or texted to 401 480 9933. If you text, please be sure you are on wifi and choose the largest file size and highest quality, if prompted.


If you only do one thing this week...
