From the Desk of the Head of School- March 29, 2019
This spring weather brings us all outside to celebrate the changing of the seasons. It offers up the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors without being soaked by rain or chilled to the bone. Over the break, my family broke out our kite and flew it over Kever Park. I think Grier ran more laps around Kever Park trying to get that thing to catch the tiny wisp of wind in the air than she ever anticipated. Her brothers, on the other hand, were fairly bored until they found a sand patch in the middle of Kever and promptly began to dig. I was struck by how quickly they fell into negotiations around what that sand patch represented - their imaginations playing off of one another.
This weekend, I know many of you will be outside for soccer, baseball or lacrosse games. The road warriors come out hauling our four to fourteen year olds all around town to organized sports or other commitments. If there is one thing I would encourage you all to do, should the opportunity present itself, is to get outside, away from it all as best as you can arrange, and be… unscripted. A hike in the woods, a visit to your neighborhood park, or a bike ride around the block, enjoy the outdoors with your family. See where your collective imagination takes you. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
