Kumbaya Moments: the melding of dance, reading, and more

Here we are in the downstairs reading room and it’s just another day at the library:  students studying together, browsing the bookshelves for some pleasure reading, looking at the 7th grade genealogy museum projects displayed throughout the space, and yes, an upside-down dancer, casually reading a book.   Our dance department’s teacher Molly Mattei, describes their project:  This past week the dance department (grades 8-11) worked on a photo shoot influenced by "Dancers Among Us", a project by Jordan Matter exploring dance in normal, everyday situations. The students came up with some very creative and inspired ideas... In addition to celebrating dance, the photos also showcase our school's beautiful campus."

Recent & future library events/displays include lunchtime meetings to discuss the new structuring of community service clubs, tutoring in the study rooms, receptions for admitted students for the 2013-14 school year, faculty meetings, Bites of L.A. & Programming Club meetings, Flintridge Press publishing, opportunities to be a Mr. Flintridge Prep escort, & sign-ups for running for class officers.  That isn’t everything, but frankly, I’d rather not have a longer run-on sentence.
