#16: Shipley's Oaks and Acorns Tradition

Each fall, Shipley's Mighty Oaks (our seniors and most venerable students) welcome the Little Acorns (students in Pre-K, Kindergarten, and first grade) to the School by presenting them with decorated pencil boxes at the first All School Assembly of the year. In turn, those same Little Acorns present their Mighty Oaks with crayon-covered "diplomas" at year's end. View photos from this year's ceremony.
The Shipley School is a private, coeducational day school for pre-kindergarten through 12th grade students, located in Bryn Mawr, PA. Through our commitment to educational excellence, we develop within each student a love of learning and a desire for compassionate participation in the world.
