From the Head of School

We’re all in this together
Once we know, that we are
We’re all stars
And we see that…  (High School Musical)

There are no truer or stronger words for the 2018-2019 Salem Academy school year than these! I have observed parents helping with student outings (thank you!), prefects assisting new boarding students, seasoned faculty members collaborating with new colleagues, athletic teams cheering each other on during preseason workouts, alumnae stopping by to help a hand – AND WE HAVEN’T OFFICIALLY STARTED SCHOOL YET!

Orientation had a different look this year, and I think it went really well. We will sit down to evaluate the different components, and we will probably also invite the students and the parents to share feedback once we digest it ourselves. And as you all know – no matter how many details you include, something gets overlooked.

I have just a few housekeeping items to add here:

If your daughter is new to Salem Academy and did not attend preseason but would like to try-out for a fall sport (cross country, field hockey, tennis, volleyball), she may come to try-outs on Monday and Tuesday from 3:45-5:30. Regular practices begin Wednesday from 4-5:30.

Students will received the Student Handbook during Orientation. If you are interested in seeing it, you can find a digital copy under Quicklinks on the website (www.salemacademy.com).

Students will also receive their schedules at Orientation, provided all forms have been turned in.

That’s it from me for this week. Thank you for saying hello to me during the orientations – my welcome to Salem Academy has been overwhelming, and I am thrilled to be here.

Far may our song ring clear!
