|A Note From Headmaster
For my last note of this school year, I would like to quote from two seniors. Ryan Andersen spoke at our End of Year Awards Ceremony and began with these words- “Wow, we made it.” Gavin Aikins spoke at our 8th Grade Promotion Ceremony, exhorting the rising Freshmen to “never be satisfied…keep progressing.”
Wow, what a year, and we did make it. This is a testament to the fortitude in our students, teachers, and you, our parents. We made it, and our hearts should be filled with gratitude and a sense of accomplishment. However, let us never be satisfied but keep progressing. Beginning next week, the leadership team will debrief the events from finals week and outline all we have in store for the coming school year; the goal must be to bring back traditions and events that are vital to our culture and making sure students are known and loved. These events include: student mentorship, student leadership, epic cycles, dances, field days, high school retreat, senior mini-retreat, at least one hundred home athletic events, high school symposium, drama performances, winter and spring concert, extra-curricular choirs, extra-curricular drama, robotics, coffee with the headmaster, faculty seminar, tours, homecoming, Night of the Griffin, and the list goes on. We keep progressing, are never satisfied, but will consider forming new traditions and new events that knit us together in love and build community.
Thank you for your love, care, encouragement, support, and gratitude this school year. Our community is only as great as our students, who learn what it is to desire truth, behold beauty, and live out goodness from your example.
