|A Note from the Headmaster
I hope you and your family had a blessed Christmas and New Year during this Winter Break. I hope students were able to relax, sleep in, and cherish their time with family.
Like many of you, I set some goals for 2022. Some goals are personal; others more professional, connected to my calling as an educator. I believe setting goals with intention can be live changing. So, I wanted to share with you a goal I have for us as parents. The goal is that we think more about building community. In order to achieve a goal, we must lay out action items, so please begin thinking about what you can do to help build our community. For many of you, it is continuing to do what you have done for years: greet teachers, students, and fellow parents when you are on campus, serve in our lunchroom, donate time and energy through our PSO, send encouraging emails to teachers, answer late night texts/calls from other parents who are trying to figure out the homework, drive safely and courteously during drop off and pickup, encourage your child to go to a teacher with questions or concerns, remind your child to think of others during the school day, exhort your child to understand that high standards of moral character and academic rigor will shape his or her soul to pursue good, and the list goes on.
You and your children make Glendale Prep a wonderful place to serve, and I am humbled to be part of this community. Never underestimate the little things that make this place home for me and so many others!
I look forward to 2022 together,
Join the Griffin Players for the faculty play, The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde.

As a reminder, only pants and skirts may be worn to school in third quarter. Shorts may not be worn until after Spring Break. Additionally, gentlemen may not wear ankle socks with pants. “Socks must be white or solid black, navy, or dark brown in color, and extend above the ankle and be free of visible brand logos, patterns, or decorations.” Please email Mrs. Kratz with questions.
The much awaited and much anticipated 2021-2022 Yearbook is finally available on the payment portal!

Middle School Latin Tutoring
Students from both the Mentorship and Community Service Groups will be offering tutoring services for Middle School Latin on Wednesdays after school from January 19th through March 9th. Students will be released from tutoring at 4:00pm. If you are interested in having your middle school student participate, the cost for the quarter (a total of nine sessions) is $25 and monies will be used to support both these groups.
