Class unity, service, and enjoyment are the guiding principles of Lower School student activities. Throughout the year, each grade is involved in supporting a community organization.
Culture Crew is a voluntary group of fourth and fifth graders who work to develop awareness and appreciation of one another, how they fit in their school, as well as the role they want to play in the larger global picture. Their consistent message is to create harmonious communities and classrooms that are accepting and inclusive of all. Culture Crew creates skits and videos and builds activities that promote a message of unity. In the 2013-14 school year, the Culture Crew worked to achieve the designation of No Place For Hate, as designated by the Anti Defamation League, for the Lower School.
The Leadership Council is comprised of nine fourth and fifth grade students who help develop leadership initiatives in the Lower School. The children are asked by the Lower School administration to join and serve for two years. The Council also assists the Lower School in chapels and leading pledges.
Pride is a volunteer organization of fifth graders whose sole responsibility is the meeting and greeting of parents and students during morning carpool.
