"A tiny hope of love brings the light of dawn through the darkness of a lengthy night, and love, small, even as the twinkling of the faintest star, keeps the light at the altar shining." —Maharishi, from “Love and God”

Dear Parents,


Congratulations to 8th grader Sophia Blitz who placed third in the South East Iowa MathCounts competition last week.  She will be competing at the State competition on March 17th.


In preparation for the Spring Celebration, we are pre-selling beautiful, blooming, potted bulbs. The bulbs come in 6” pots and cost $8.00 each. We will have tulips, hyacinths, and daffodils. These scented flowers always come as a welcome breath of spring at this time of year. To place your order, please call the Girls School office at 472-9400, ext. 3. The bulbs will be available for pick-up after the celebration on Tuesday, March 21st.
