Week in Pictures, May 23-27

On May 23, the Grytte newspaper staff had the opportunity to hear from Michael Wilner '07, who is the Washington bureau chief and White House correspondent for The Jerusalem Post, leading their coverage on Iran, Syria and the US-Israel relationship. Mr. Wilner spoke to the boys about the field of journalism and answered questions.

We gathered all 136 Browning brothers (64 sets) for our annual brothers portrait, just in time for International Brothers Day on May 24.

While “The King Who Couldn’t Laugh” was the title of the fourth grade production in May, the audience could not help but laugh as the boys delivered a constant barrage of witticisms in “Monty Python” style. The play’s plot called for the talented cast of Browning boys, a.k.a. royal subjects, to put a smile on the face of their kingdom’s leader.

Through jokes and a lively rendition of “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life,” the boys took on the task. As Head of Lower School Laurie Gruhn noted, it was a great start to the day!

Dr. Lisa Miller, director of clinical psychology at Columbia University, Teachers College and author of the New York Times bestseller, "The Spiritual Child: The New Science on Parenting for Health and Lifelong Thriving,” spoke on May 24 as part of the Parents Association speaker series. For more information, watch her on TEDx and NPR. Read two OP-eds in the New York Times and New York Magazine
