I have communicated with Christine Ashley, Head of Scattergood Friends School, who has confirmed that the Summers-Knoll middle school trip to Scattergood will take place on September 26, 27, and 28. Our students will come to school as usual on Wednesday the 26th, stay for the all-school gathering in the Commons, and then hit the road. We expect to stay through morning classes and lunch at Scattergood on Friday the 28th, and should be back in Ann Arbor by 8:00 that evening.
I would like to have an informational meeting (basically a Q&A session) after school on Thursday, September 20, in my classroom. We will kick off the meeting at 4:00 with some special Iowa treats. This is a meeting for parents; I won't turn any kids away, but the conversation will be oriented toward families. We'll be finished by 5:00.
