One of my fondest memories at Calvert was in 12-A (sixth grade). At the end of the school day, Mrs. Craig would sometimes read to us. I remember vividly the books she read by Cynthia Voigt, Homecoming and Dicey’s Song. The plots and characters were mesmerizing, and I just felt so relaxed and calm listening to Mrs. Craig’s soothing voice. I can still picture sitting at my desk in that classroom, listening intently.
Another prominent memory were the cicadas all over my dress when leaving our graduation in 1987!
