There is a generous spirit around the holidays and that was evident before the November Thanksgiving break as our Lower Campus students held their annual Turkey Trot and our Upper Campus students supported a youth football team from Compton to achieve their dream of participating in the National Youth Football Championships. It is very heartwarming to see our school community give back in such a positive way.
This spirit of giving continues as our Parent Club volunteers come together later this week to decorate the Hermes Quad and classroom exteriors at Lower Campus by hanging wreaths and wrapping garland. This festive spirit continues as we prepare for our traditional Campus Lighting performance on Thursday, Dec. 19, at 6:30 p.m. in the Greenberg Activities Center.
As the semester winds down at Upper Campus, our students are caring not just about their upcoming final exams but also for those less fortunate in our larger Ojai community. The high school students will also celebrate with a special holiday dress dinner before their focus shifts firmly to final exams. We encourage students to meet with their teachers this week to make sure they are preparing well in advance of finals and not cramming at the last minute. Final exams begin on Monday, December 16.
