News, Musings & Thoughts


Headmaster’s Note:

I remember when my wife and daughter read the daily list of activities for our school. Both are former and present, independent school teachers. They are familiar with what goes on in much larger schools. They expressed shock that so much could be going on for a school our size; in fact, they thought it was unusual for even larger schools. Mexican guest dinner at a parent alum’s house; our China trip students returning from our first trip to China; Robotics class after school; drama students filming in the Gonyea basement; the track team preparing for their big competitions at Hayward Field this weekend; 2nd grade baseball practice; Senior Symposium in the Hub; high school students joining Buck for a lecture at the university; French Club meeting; Homework Club session; OSU Dance Company, with alum, Alysha Meno, performing ballroom dance for the whole student body; Children’s Film Festival; and so much more. When we had our twelve member accreditation team visit two years ago, the two chairs, both heads of much larger schools, expressed the same amazement at the quantity and breath of our enrichment activities. As a side note, they looked at our publications from Annual Reports through books commemorating our new buildings and marveled that a school with tight funds could produce such things at such high quality. Sometimes we can take for granted what we accomplish. I just want to have a “step back and smell the roses” moment to be proud of what we do here.

Warmly,
Mr. S.
