Meredith Vieira cites her parents choice of an all-girls school for her education as one of the top five decisions that changed her life: "My parents putting me in a single-sex school had a great impact on who I am. ... suddenly I had a sisterhood that I never would have had otherwise, and an incredible bond was formed. ... We were encouraged to be loud in class, debate was a good thing, and all of it made me feel like the strongest person in the world."

The 8th grade visual art students in the 2D and drawing rotation can be seen in this photo preparing papers to make handmade sketchbooks that they will use throughout the year. Using a bone folder, the girls will carefully fold each individual page, stack the pages into signatures, and mark and measure out the pages in one-inch increments for stitching. The girls are taught how to use an awl to punch holes along their marks into the signatures to prepare for stitching and then covers will be designed in the style of illuminated manuscript. Such beautiful work!
