Week of February 23, 2018

From Interim Head of School, Miss T


Dear All,

It has been an extremely busy but productive week. We have had our first Head of School candidate on campus for a two-day visit. He met and talked with lots of folks and has been very well received. We have 2 more candidates coming this next week and we certainly hope to see you at the parent meetings on Monday from 5:15 to 6:00 p.m. and on Wednesday from 5:15 to 6:00 p.m. The Board of Trustees has also been on campus, rehearsals began for “Mary Poppins,” and yesterday afternoon and today we have hosted our candidates for the Sisters Scholarship. I think that our weeks will continue to be like this one as we enter the spring season. We are all lacing on our track shoes (the spring sports also began this week) and are preparing for the race to the end of the year. There are many important activities and events in the next few months and we want to put energy and enthusiasm into a positive end to the school year.
My best to you all for a wonderful weekend.

Take care,

Mary Lorick Thompson

Interim Head of School

Long Weekend Choral Trip

Glee Club and Chorus had a marvelous trip to Walt Disney World over February Long Weekend! The girls spent a day at The Magic Kingdom, a day at Disney Hollywood Studios and part of a day at Epcot. They had a performance at Disney Springs and participated in a wonderful workshop where they learned songs from ‘Tangled’ which were then put into the movie! It was a wonderful experience!
