A Message from the Division Head

by Ann Sulzer

What an amazing close to our year! We celebrated our students and our year together in so many ways. Our last day of school was filled with a campus-wide scavenger hunt, field games, and time in a bouncy obstacle course. We also set aside time for students to share their appreciations for the people who make a difference in their lives on our campus. Kids wrote thank you notes for our dining hall staff and their amazing food, our supportive teachers, and our facilities team that keeps our campus up and running and beautiful. Our final Gathering included an outstanding performance of “School’s Out for Summer” by our own rock band, The Lost Faculties, including Mr. Adams on guitar, Mr. Siegel on keyboard, Mr. Brown on bass, and Madame O’Dell on drums. There were many screaming fans!

Finally, we celebrated our eighth graders with a beautiful Memories Dinner organized by eighth grade parent Margueritte Kim and others, where they shared a wonderful slideshow of every eighth grader. Middle School Promotion was a beautiful ceremony with our student speaker, Sadie Y., whose speech was chosen by her peers for its outstanding sentiments that were both thoughtful and humorous. 

It has been a pleasure and a privilege to share this 2021–22 school year with the entire Middle School community. We wish you a wonderful restorative and rejuvenating summer, and we look forward to welcoming you all back in the fall!
