The seniors and their first grade buddies got to meet for the first time this week, and the excitement for both the big and the little Pirates was palpable -- one student even slept in his uniform the night before so as not to risk missing his big moment (we won't say whether it was a first or a 12th grader). After a quick photo, the students headed to the LS courtyard to chat, plan for Halloween and write messages in the first-grade journals. Their next opportunity to get together will be at the annual Halloween parade, scheduled for October 29. Check out this sweet album of highlights (all photos can be downloaded). Special thanks to Katie Kutschinski for the wonderful photos!
