Lower Schoolers presented the local non-profit We Are Family, which supports area low-income seniors, with gift cards totaling $5,090 and 1,305 grocery items—almost twice as much as collected last year. Thank you to the many families who contributed and to the Upper School students who contributed $1060 in gift cards for the drive.

Mr. Chandler offered a prayer of thanks after Lower School lunch.
As is custom, after Upper School lunch, Headmaster Robinson challenged the head prefect, Rustin Khosravi ’22, to a wishbone pull. And, as is custom, the head prefect won. The prize: free dress the last day before Thanksgiving break. Happy Thanksgiving!
Located in Washington D.C., St. Albans School is a private, all boys day and boarding school. For more than a century, St. Albans has offered a distinctive educational experience for young men in grades 4 through 12. While our students reach exceptional academic goals and exhibit first-rate athletic and artistic achievements, as an Episcopal school we place equal emphasis upon moral and spiritual education.
