Senior is a 2021 Presidential Scholar
Congratulations to Derek, named as a Presidential Scholar.

U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona announced the Presidential Scholars on Thursday.

“The 2021 Presidential Scholars represent extraordinary achievements for our extraordinary times,” Cardona said in a statement. “I am delighted to join President Biden in saluting these outstanding young people for their achievements, service, character and continued pursuit of excellence. Their examples make me proud and hopeful about the future. Honoring them can remind us all of the great potential in each new generation and renew our commitment to helping them achieve their dreams.”

Billy's Blog - From our Head of School
“While people brood, time skips ahead without looking back.”
Alan Lightman, Einstein’s Dreams

“I can’t believe it’s already May!” “Can you believe school is almost over?” “So, are you winding down?”

These were some of the comments and questions I heard over the past couple of weeks as we approach the end of the 2020-2021 school year. As I observed students in classes and on the playground, or attended end-of-the-year events like the Annual Senior Dinner, I alternated between wistfulness and disbelief that this school year will be over very soon.

Although every year has its own rhythm, I think we can agree that this one has been exceptional. The commencement of school with no students on campus seemed like an extension of last year rather than the fresh start filled with promise that the beginning of school usually augurs; we pressed the pause button in May and turned it off in August.
