Head of School Chris Garten welcomed students back to class. He gave an opening speech about the Seven Hills’ values of fairness and justice. Students, including fifth-graders Amara Kulkarni (Lotspeich) and Grace Guminey (Doherty),seventh-grader Annalise Hawgood (Middle School), and Upper School student president senior Michael Weirichand vice president senior Grant Veldhuisalso spoke.
