MR NEWS 9.5.23

September 5, 2023 Ben Lippen News, Lower School News

Legacy begins this Wednesday: Legacy is a tradition where 4th graders, “seniors” of the lower school, run a snack cart during lunch with sweet and salty treats to sell to other students. Treats are 50 cents each, and profits go towards the 4th grade class to purchase something to give back to the school at the end of the year. The kids love this tradition. Thank you for supporting our school and 4th graders in this project.
