Today is the fall equinox, which marks the first day of autumn here in New England.

School Meeting featured solos by Caroline M. and Ellie R., a Farm School video courtesy of 8th graders and Ms. Shea, and an intro to Math Mysteries. The Parents' Association gathered on Thursday morning for the first meeting of the school year, which included a Brookwood Basics overview. We will host another Brookwood Basics session on the evening of October 4, preceding the Back-to-School Night program.
