A Note from Headmaster Philabaum

Dear Archway Trivium East Families,
I would like to share at note of appreciation for your vast outpouring of generosity, love, and care for our teachers this week. As I have said before, this year we never asked more from each of you, and in spite of the challenges, you have shown our entire school unquenchable good will. On behalf of all of the teachers, thank you for your acknowledgement of their heart of service, and for reciprocating their love with your own. This is the essence of our community – a group of people dedicated to the belief that education is about shaping the heart – and leading our students by their own example of service and sacrifice.
With Gratitude,
Stephen Philabaum
