    Grade VI spends the year studying American history.  In a typical year, the boys visit historic sites in New York, West Point, and Gettysburg.  While those trips are not taking place this year, there is much to learn in the classroom.  And as we witnessed in this morning’s assembly, the rest of the school absorbed a great deal from watching the boys give recitations from the Teaching Theater pulpit.
