Dear Parents:

I wanted to highlight several exciting things happening on the home front this week:

  • The number corner is alive and well in our K-5 classrooms! I very much enjoyed visiting classrooms recently and seeing first-hand how engaged our faculty and students are with the cornerstone piece of our new Bridges math curriculum. Last year Ms. Blanchette and lower school teachers surveyed other private and public schools about their math programs and ultimately recommended that we adopt Bridges, which Dr. Jo Bohler at Stanford (author of Mathematical Mindset) has endorsed. It is exciting to begin seeing the fruits of their labor!
  • After our stellar cabaret show last month, “How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?”, we were treated this week to another wonderful show, “Hey, Diddle Diddle: The adventures of the dish and the spoon” featuring our middle and lower school thespians as well as the band. Bravo!
  • Our National Honor Society students, under the guidance of faculty advisor, Ms. Thatcher, organized an elegant induction this week to recognize the new members. We look forward to seeing how these leaders contribute to their classes, their peers, the school as a whole, and our island community in the months ahead.

I also wanted to highlight exciting news away from campus and half-way around the globe:

  • We wish Taylor Hasson, Lucy and Kate Klempen, and Sara and Steven Hardee the best of luck as they represent the USVI in Sanya, China for the Youth World Championship regatta. Hooray!

Have a wonderful weekend,

Kari

After School Activities

Next week is the last week for After School Activities.  A big thank you to Wendy Minten, Laurie Bohlke, Reece Cresswell, and Michael Belgrave for continuing to offer activities in this hurricane year.   We hope to have a few more activities in January and will be asking for volunteers when we return to school from the Holiday break.
