From the Desk of the Head of School- February 22, 2019
I wanted to write a quick thank you note to you all. Over the last day and a half, you all have taken time out of your busy schedules to come on campus and sit in on parent/teacher conferences and partner with us around the ten most formative learning years of your children’s lives. We are so grateful for being able to work with families who are so aligned with our mission to educate and inspire young people to become thoughtful, creative, lifelong learners and self-disciplined, responsible, caring citizens.
In addition to this partnership, we are thankful for our Harding Parents Association. Most immediately, the HPA provided a first class lunch to the entire faculty this afternoon. It was so nice to take a moment to eat a great meal and reconnect with our colleagues in this semi-social environment. And this is just one way you all support the faculty and staff at Harding Academy. Whether it be through the HPA gift of a renovated lobby or the Movestrong wall mounted exercise system in the weight room or the annual gifts to our financial aid program, the HPA serves Harding Academy in incredible ways.
Next week we will welcome some great songwriters on campus for our Songwriters’ Night and online silent auction, the proceeds of which will also go to financial aid at the school. After that, the all-inclusive, volunteer-driven Harding Art Show will take center stage. All of these endeavors are labors of love from you, our parents, and are critical contributors to the ethos of family that permeates Harding Academy. We are so grateful for all that you do on behalf of the school and would not be the kind of place we are with you all. Thank you for your invaluable support.
