Congratulations to Henry who is now a graduate of Kindergarten. Today was his last day in Caitlin’s primary class, and in July he’ll move up to lower elementary, or what’s traditionally called first grade. He has done well at Montessori, and we hope to see that continue.

As part of Caitlin’s last report, she writes:

He does like to read, and he has come a long way. The kid reads everything now; I hope he’ll start reading novels soon, or what he calls “chapter books.” I’m trying to encourage him to write, too. These skills are so integral for developing critical capacities, creativity, and empathy—and I’m not just saying that as an English professor.

Way to go, son. I can’t wait to see what this next chapter brings.
