On Wednesday, May 31st we will gather for the Senior School end of year Recognition event where we celebrate every student's personal achievements in all aspects of school life. The event will also mark the culmination of a process that students have undertaken with their advisors to reflect on their personal goals this year. The afternoon will begin at 4:00pm with these small group advisory gatherings where students will share, with their parents, the reflections recorded in their official Record of Achievement booklets. These smaller group ceremonies have been designed by the students, with their Advisors, to be informal and authentic in their presentation format.
This will be followed in the Theatre with a more traditionally formal "Step Up and Closing Ceremony" with all Senior School students where ties are exchanged and speeches delivered. A Senior School reception on the Roof Garden, with photo opportunities, will finish the day. We are looking forward to seeing all parents participate in this year-end celebration. If you have not yet RSVP'd for the event, please do so here.
