Volume VI | Spring 2019
Dear Alumni & Friends,

Spring summons our desire for renewal with the reawakening of the planet after a cold winter, and no time is better to heighten awareness of the need to take care of Mother Earth. This year, a student-led initiative has drawn attention to the negative impact of single use plastic by calling on the community for a week-long effort to avoid all such wares on campus and encourage sustainable alternatives.

We are proud that our students are leading the way and living the LA mission of commitment to the common good. This past week, on Cum Laude Day, as we have for many years, we recognized such good work in an alumnus, presenting the Greater Good Award to Rob Kaplan ‘97 who has dedicated his career to fighting plastic waste and creating alternative solutions to its perceived necessity. 

He is the Founder and CEO of Circulate Capital, an impact management firm dedicated to financing companies, projects, and infrastructure that prevent the flow of plastic waste to the world’s oceans, with an eye on advancing the circular economy.
As Rob’s message hits home and we strive to do more with recycling and sustainability, spring term classes are in full swing; sports teams are in mid-season form; spring one-acts have been cast and are already preparing for performances coming up next week; seniors have heard from colleges, and our admissions candidates have completed their revisit days and notified us of their decisions. 

We are on track to enroll approximately 125 new students for the 2019-20 academic year .

Before we know it, graduation on May 31 will be upon us, followed by exams for the underclassmen, and then reunion. If you are planning on attending reunion, be sure to sign up via the postcard link below.

From the Hillside,
Robinson Moore
Associate Head of School
