A message from Mr. Horner

Today began with a special visitor — Fredbird — who made an appearance with our Little Acorn through Fourth Class students! Now that we’re a month into baseball season it’s hard to believe that in September, I wrote, “We begin dreaming about what is next for the academic program and student experience at this moment because we begin from a position of strength, rather than in reaction to an academic concern.” Thank you to all who have invested their time to share their current observations and future dreams for the academic program and student experience through last fall’s Pulse Survey, winter’s Listening Sessions, and the recent ISACS survey.

This listening has provided a rich data set to analyze current strengths, challenges, and future dreams. We are committed to remaining a school of exceptional academic preparation, faith, and leadership.

As we continue to study the feedback in order to create the strategic direction of the academic program, we invite you to attend a discussion on Tuesday, May 23 at 7 p.m. The agenda will include:

  • As we approach the end of year, do you have any further thoughts you wish to address about your experience this year that you have not already shared in our surveys?
  • Summary notes of the data set from the listening sessions and ISACS survey.
  • Future plans and priorities

Thank you and I look forward to enjoying our time-honored end-of-the-year traditions (Field Day, May Crowning and Maypole, Graduation) with you.
