A Message from the Division Head
by Sarah Grenert-Funk
As the first semester comes to a close, we hope students will take the opportunity of the long weekend to rest and recuperate as they look ahead to the second semester. Teachers are busy writing narrative reports that will be posted to the portal on February 3rd along with semester grades. In addition to reports from their academic courses, you will also see comments for the first semester Activity course and fall sports. Advisors review all comments and will check in with their advisees about the first semester to reflect and set goals and make plans for the rest of the year. We hope you will take the time to read the comments and engage in conversation with your child about their strengths, areas of growth, and engagement in their courses.
I hope all of you were able to attend the recent State of the School presentations. If you were unable to attend, here is access to a recording of the presentation where you’ll have the chance to hear from the incoming Head of School Michael Spencer.
A huge thank you to parents partnership reps Nina Kapur (9th) and Michelle Tubbs (11th) for hosting a parent reception ahead of the in-person State of the School address. Look for other opportunities to connect with fellow parents at similar events in the coming months.
