The month of May is Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) Heritage Month, and this year marks 60 years of APIDA students in the Gilman community! Congratulations to the APIDA art and poetry contest winners!
To celebrate National Poetry Month, the Lower School was treated to virtual visits by award-winning authors/poets Janet Wong and Laura Shovan.
A most energetic author-illustrator pair virtually visited third and fourth graders on Wednesday, March 23. Author Matthew Swanson and illustrator Robbi Behr, who work together on “The Cookie Chronicles” series of books, gave a fun and lively presentation about their books and process, followed by a drawing activity, and a Q&A.
The results are in! Lower School boys collectively read for more than 4,893 hours and raised nearly $25,000 for a local organization in this year's read-a-thon.
