Voices of the Lower School

“Love, kindness, and caring.” Those were the three words Lower School Bush student Will B. ’30 used to describe The Bush School community last year during the global pandemic. The Bush School led with courage as we began the 2020-2021 school year by offering in-person schooling to our youngest learners, collecting critical data about schooling in-person and COVID-19 that allowed other schools in our region to follow suit. Tune in and hear the voices of our Lower School students as they reflect on the pure joy of being able to return to the classroom, recess, and everyday life.
