JU-D Weekly Note

Dear JU-D families,

We made it to winter break!

We had a solid week of learning as students maintained heroic focus in the face of pre-holiday jitters. This week students worked to complete a comprehensive project about our class reading of Where the Mountain Meets the Moon, finalized an essay about character development in their book, and selected a location in China to begin a thoughtful experiment about creating a new civilization.

All the while students were balancing their energy and focus with celebrations of the season, like the winter concert and an a cappella concert. It’s been a wonderful year so far, and we are looking forward to hitting the ground running in January.

Have a wonderful, warm, and safe holiday season and enjoy the time with family! We’re excited to spend 2017 with you all.


Noelle and Nick
