Under the Oak Ep. 01: John Melton, Head of School Elect
Many of our listeners may remember that our first season of the LFCDS Community Podcast was produced in conjunction with Pete Moore, former head of Lower School, back in 2019. Of course, a once in a lifetime pandemic forced us to focus our efforts on the changes it ushered in. But now, we're happy to return to this format to share the amazing stories around us with all of you. Recorded just before Thanksgiving break, this episode includes a conversation with Grade 2 student and poetry competition winner Madeline H., LFCDS faculty member Lukas Christianson, and our Head of School Elect, John Melton.
