Lower-School Favorite Words

Recently, at the Lower-School morning meeting, we asked our students what was "the most important word they had learned this year." Here are some of the amazing results from kindergarten and second grade. Aren't you proud of our budding vocabularies?

Kindergarten (Mrs. Harbin)

Renee Brown: the
Jerome Butler: because
Danny Horgan: snake
Mary Kate Hurst: supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Arriana Kennedy: wonderful
Madeline Letts: here
Sophie Miller: because
Owen Murphy: because
Faith Palmer: surprise
Max Shedd: integrity
Connor Smith: yellow
Kayley Spitzer: perfect

Kindergarten (Mrs. Frank)

Gabriel Adkins: smoke
Cavan Bannon: expo
Tripp Current: because
Gabryela Dyszelski: operation
Ruby Garcia: stone

Second Grade (Mrs. Wynkoop)

Sophia Brown: partial sum algorithm
Isa Chapman: underground railroad
Emma Conner: equivalent
Jamie Danis: unsaturated
Jack Dee: oath
Eli Dills: moral

On a completely unrelated note, I am happy to tell you that enrollment for next year is strong. We are approximately twenty students ahead of where we were at this time last year, and Gaston Day School will probably be the largest it has been since the early 1980s.

Have a great summer!
