New and returning students participated in a wonderful La Pietra tradition. The Big (returning students) and Little (new students) Sisters met and got together on the Great Lawn to enjoy a pizza lunch provided by the Parent Faculty Association (PFA) volunteers and Student Council.
Big Sisters will continue to bond with their Little Sisters throughout the school year. Small activities like this go a long way for new students to help them connect with students in all grade levels, to learn about their peers, and to feel supported as they kick off a new school year.
Mahalo to our PFA volunteers, CJ Hall-Dumale, Claire Link, Ivy Costa, Lori De Almeida, Abee Turiello, and Dan Hartenstein (missing from photo below) for assisting with the Big and Sister Lunch!
