Weekly Letter from Jean-Yves - Coffee & Conversation
This morning, I had the pleasure of welcoming parents for our first p’tit déj – a breakfast event that will take place every month until the end of the year.

Weekly Letter from Jean-Yves - Reading & Friendship
Reading is a friendship, according to Proust, and I am very grateful for the friendship so many of you extended to us this week by coming into our classes and reading to our students. The children loved listening to you, and I hope that all the readers – parents and colleagues alike – enjoyed the experience too!

Weekly Letter from Jean-Yves - Constructing Our Culture

Weekly Letter from Jean-Yves - The Cool, the Pretty & the Ugly
First, I want to say thank you to those who wrote to wish me a happy birthday (after the very subtle announcement in my last letter). Please excuse the blanket thank you. I was genuinely touched by each and every message, it’s just that I didn’t have enough time between my seven meals a day while I was in France to reply individually and then I was swamped by mask-mandate-related meetings and correspondence the minute school started back!
