Welcome to The New Husky School Year!
It’s great to be back this week for faculty meetings - virtually anyway- after an eventful summer for all of us. Next Thursday morning, new and returning students will be greeted together in our 2020-21 Kick-Off Morning Meeting, and the annual “banging of the tam-tam” will get it all rolling. One of our enduring traditions is to assemble together as a school community to start the day and the year. This year is no exception, and we’ll proceed from there through two packed days of classes, advisory time, activities, and a great deal of orientation for everyone.
In order to make sure students are prepared for the first weeks of school, we have assembled materials packets to be distributed on Saturday and Sunday. More information can be found HERE (this is a link to last week's Friday Letter with instructions) about the process for families to follow as they pick up boxes.
Thanks to all of you who have joined us for virtual Town Halls this summer. Whether your child is new or returning, middle or upper school, RHP, Renaissance, or REACH, we have enjoyed sharing our ideas and initiatives and hearing your questions and comments during these important times for our Husky Community. The faculty meetings this week have focused on our new and much improved learning management system, Blackbaud, and Distance Learning strategies and best practices to keep students engaged, successful, and enthusiastic about learning. The RHP and Ren Academic Distance Learning Policies and Procedures will help you partner with us to ensure a successful on-line academic experience in the time ahead.
We are excited about our upcoming Back to School Night and Grade Level Parent Gatherings, all virtual this year but all still packed with information and updates on your child’s experience in the year ahead, in and out of the classroom.
