The annual Lower School Daddy Daughter Dance knocked the girls off their feet.

High school students reflect fondly on their time in lower school, whether it was at Wesleyan or some different school, and remember learning math with shaving cream on their desk, running around on the playground and crushing on your desk partner. Keep Reading
Cleghorn and Warren Hall may be far apart, but the relationships between high school and lower school students are close-knit. As a K-12 school, Wesleyan values the chance for students of all grades to interact outside of the classroom. High schoolers have the opportunity to invest in the lives of lower school students year-round through a variety of clubs and activities.
At this year’s club fair, Wesleyan’s favorite pi-loving, problem-solving team revisited the podium, brandishing their first-place trophy from last year’s state mathematics tournament. The math team is not just a club; they are a close-knit team that competes in many tournaments and often wins. And this year, they are encouraging new recruits to join throughout all the grades.
Easter has always been a well-celebrated holiday on the Wesleyan campus. From the lower school Easter egg hunt, to the high school viewing of the 4th grade Easter play, every student has been involved in the celebration of Jesus’s sacrifice and return from the grave.
The 4th graders worked hard for a week to get their Easter play “show ready.” With the help of the 4th grade parents, the show was able to run smoothly for both the parental showings as well as the class viewings.
Teacher and grade chair Sarah Kate Wilson said, “We have an army of moms behind the scenes that work flawlessly to pull off each performance.” All teachers agreed that the show would not go on without the aid of dedicated mothers.
