Posted by BEN BEAUMONT - We heard from Clinton School student Tim Giattina this morning who has just returned from his International Public Service Project in Shanghai, China, where he was working to promote corporate responsibility with American companies doing business there. Giattina found time to see the sights, taking Flat Stanley for a visit to the Great Wall of China:
“To the best of my knowledge, Flat Stanley had yet to climb the Great Wall,” Giattina said. “Here we are after making the long trek up Mutianyu, incidentally the same spot of the Wall former President Clinton visited in 1998.”

Posted by ERIC WILSON: Clinton School faculty and staff celebrated Dianne Kelly’s birthday today. As the School’s Director of Administration, Dianne plays a role in almost every aspect of our operations. To honor her special day, Dean Rutherford agreed to join Dianne in her favorite pastime, BAGGO. On behalf of the students, faculty and staff, we wish her a very happy birthday.
UPDATE I: After three rounds Dean Rutherford led Dianne 6 to 5 and the game was called because Dianne was late to her birthday party.
UPDATE II: Clinton School student and reigning champ, Russ Swearingen, did not accept the Dean’s challenge to a rematch.
