A Note from Ms. Gruhn, Assistant Head of the School:
About a week or two ago, as I went through my beloved checklists and to do lists, I sat back contentedly and said to myself, “There. I’m good to go. According to these lists, everything I could possibly need to do prior to the start of the school year is complete, and I am ready for the year to begin.” And as I looked around, I realized there was only one problem:
The teachers were not here.
The students were not here.
And if I were really honest and even remotely observant, many of the classrooms were not here. And that was when I remembered: A school is not about lists and getting things done on paper. It is not even about all the things that are in a classroom. It is about the people who make up the community of learners, the individuals who come together joined by common intellectual pursuits. It is about the gathering of students and teachers who sets a tine and vision for the school year.
And today, the boys arrived. Now. Now, we are ready to begin! I wish everyone a wonderful year!
