Becoming a global citizen has to begin close to home. For students it begins with how they treat each other and with their classroom. As they grow the circles become wider.
Here is Diane Reeder at last week’s lower school assembly that was also attended by a cross section of older students. Diane is the executive director of Queens Galley in Kingston. She told the wonderful story of the hungry stranger who made the miraculous stone soup that fed the town. Last month Queens Galley served over 7,000 meals.
At our traditional holiday celebration this afternoon students made table decorations for the Thanksgiving feast at the Galley. Upper School students will be delivering them later this afternoon. It marks the start of a new partnership.
