Big Brothers and Sisters Morning Exercise

The tradition of Big Brothers and Sisters is almost as old as Morning Exercise. The seniors entered to the strains of bagpipes and sat facing the rest of the school. Principal Dan Frank then called the seniors forward to serve as the elder “siblings” for each class in Junior Kindergarten through 8th grade. During the rest of the year, it is not uncommon to observe a senior with a younger “brother” or “sister” listening to a story, reading, tutoring or assisting on a class trip.
