Letter from David Magill
Posted January 16
Dear Laboratory Schools' Parents,More
Next year marks my eleventh year as Director of the Laboratory Schools, and these years have been among the most memorable of a career in education that began in 1970. In my life, and the life of these wonderful Schools, it also marks a natural time for a transition. And so, with gratitude and complete confidence in the Schools’ continued eminence, I am writing to let you know that I plan to retire on June 30, 2014.

The children then painted their portraits using flat, bold, non- realistic color before adding dots.More
