Thank you to all the students and families who have completed their surveys.
The timing of the surveys coincided with some hot water and ongoing internet problems which may have swayed the results in several areas. However, I’m happy to report that initial analysis indicates that families continue to be very impressed with our quality of education, quality of teaching, and various community factors that we view as a source of pride. I will share more detail of our strengths and weakness as time permits.
I want to let you know that we intend to survey again in the fall when we have addressed our internet issues more fully so that those issues do not unduly influence other ratings.
Earlier this week, a magnolia tree was planted in the center of the front circle of our campus.
On Thursday, May 29th at 3:45 we will have a brief ceremony where we will dedicate the tree in Skyler Anderson-Coughlin’s memory.
All MacDuffie community members are welcome.
I would like to express my sincere thanks to our Senior Parents for the gift of the multi-timezone clock. The official unveiling of the clock will take place at Commencement.
Earlier this week, I encouraged our students to make a final push toward the end of the year, in both the academic and behavioral realms. As spring finally makes itself felt, it is easy to slow down and lose sight of our final goals. All students, but especially seniors, might have one foot out the door. It’s important to enjoy these final few weeks, which are full of tradition and ceremony, before moving on.
I hope to see many of you at our Commencement on June 7th.
Head of School
