This spring, faculty members in the Lower School’s 2-3 program added an environmental unit to their yearlong maritime study, with a focus on marine debris. Teachers reached out to staff at the Rozalia Project, an organization that is committed to cleaning up the ocean and local beaches, tracking data, and looking for solutions to marine debris issues in the Gulf of Maine. A member of the Rozalia team participated in a Zoom call with faculty to help prepare for a field trip to Willard Beach in South Portland, where students recently collected marine debris.

During his tenure as National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, graphic novelist Gene Luen Yang challenged young readers to open their eyes to new ideas and experiences by initiating the Reading Without Walls Challenge. Readers are encouraged to step outside their comfort zones by reading in three categories:
- Read a book about a character who doesn’t look like you or live like you.
- Read a book about a topic you don’t know much about.
- Read a book in a format you don’t normally read for fun (a chapter book, graphic novel, poetry, etc.)

It was a big week for Waynflete students in grades 7–12! After careful consideration, and in line with CDC guidelines, we increased the percentage of students attending classes in person from 50 to 75 percent. (Students in preschool–grade 6 have all been on campus throughout the school year.)
It was wonderful to see more faces on campus—and they brought beautiful weather with them. Looking forward to 100 percent in September!
