Welcome to Hackley’s Kathleen Allen Lower School. Our motto, “United, we help one another” plays out every day in support of our children’s continuing development.
As you explore the Lower School, you will discover a cheerful, engaged community of approximately 200 children in grades Kindergarten through Four, learning together in an atmosphere that establishes collaboration and kindness as essential partners to academic challenge. Appreciating each other and a spirit of cooperation are embedded in everything we teach.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts and questions about our Lower School.
In September’s blog post, Michael C. Wirtz, Head of School, shares his remarks from the September 9, 2021 Convocation presentation to K-12 students. “As I have done for the last five years, I centered my Convocation talk on a picture book, and this year I was drawn to The Magical Yet, written by Angela DiTerlizzi and illustrated by Lorena Alvarez.”
Allison Pataki ’03 and Marya Myers ’03’s newest children’s book “Poppy Takes Paris” was released on May 26! To celebrate, they read their new book to the Hackley community. To watch their virtual book reading, click here!
In the midst of COVID-19 and Distance Learning, Hackley’s Service Team organized a campaign for students to create letters expressing their heartfelt thanks to essential workers and emergency responders in our local community. The response from all divisions was heartwarming.
