In addition to the academic focus, Tatnall’s Lower School provides lessons and character development through our Daisy Values. The daisy is a longstanding Tatnall symbol and represents compassion, integrity, honesty, perseverance, sportsmanship, respect, and cooperation. These qualities teach us to be responisble citizens, caring friends, and lifelong learners, while supporting Tatnall's mission and motto, Omnia in Caritate, or All Things in Love.
A tradition since Tatnall was founded in 1930, Lower School students start each day with Opening Exercises, building a strong sense of community and allowing students to practice public speaking to an audience of peers, families, and faculty.
Musical and Dance Productions
Both the Holiday Concert and May Celebration give Lower School students the opportunity to explore and showcase their musical and dancing talents for the community. Students learn the value of practice and see the progression of their abilities from each performance's inception to completion and as they progress through the Lower School year-to-year.
Field Day is held each spring to highlight students’ athleticism and the skills learned in their physical education classes. Field Day encourages teamwork as students learn to win with grace and dignity.
Fourth Grade Campout
Students look forward to the annual Fourth Grade Campout. This team building and bonding experience takes advantage of the beauty and amenities Tatnall’s campus offers, while encouraging our students to practice their maturity and autonomy with problem solving tasks and getting out of their comfort zone.
