Homecoming Traditions

By Frances McMichael
Director of Communications


Fall and Homecoming go together like peanut butter and jelly. Every Friday night, sitting in the stands at the football games, it’s easy to grow nostalgic thinking about the rituals that accompany high school Homecoming. Continue reading “Homecoming Traditions”

Away They Go

By Carolyn Baldwin
Head of School


While our Middle and Upper School students were away last month on Class Trips, I thought about all the benefits to be gained “by going away.” Travel is a wonderful tradition of independent schools, and it gives our students a chance to experience things – and each other – differently.

By Carolyn Baldwin
Head of School

Quiet reflection

By Carolyn Baldwin
Head of School

In your quiet reflective times this summer, give these words some thought. We are all called upon to lead.

The pioneering management theorist Peter Drucker maintained that all thriving organizations require two things simultaneously: Holding firm the fundamentals of mission and values, while changing how they are implemented to meet new times.

By Carolyn Baldwin
Head of School

Our job as a parent never really ends, but it is most challenging when our children are growing up. Babies, toddlers, and school-age children need and want far more attention, direction, and discipline than adult children.  Continue reading “Our Job as Parents”
