Head of School Weekly Email: Week Two

Dear TA Families,

We had an activity-filled week, starting with our first regular assembly of the year during power hour and culminating today with the 9th grade retreat on our outdoor campus this morning. It was wonderful to see so many of you at Back to School Night on Thursday evening – we enjoy being able to host parents back on campus these days!

School Photos

Picture day was yesterday and every student in attendance should have had the opportunity to get their photo taken. Geskus, the photography company, has extended the deadline for online pre-ordering until September 6th. Directions for online ordering are on the picture handouts that students brought home last week.

Fall Athletics

The season is ramping up with the start of competition, beginning with a girls varsity soccer game tomorrow against Enosburg. It’s a home game, and we’d love to see you out on the upper field sidelines cheering on the panthers. Game start time of noon. Senior parents will be selling food. See the game/meet schedule for next week attached, from AD Bri Barnes.

Revels Return!

I like to share news about opportunities for TA families on occasion in my weekly emails. Revels North is back and auditions are Sept. 10 – all ages welcome. “For the first time since 2019, Revels North will bring The Midwinter Revels, an Upper Valley holiday tradition since 1975, back to the stage of Lebanon Opera House in December. This year’s show, A New England Midwinter Revels Celebration, will center around a traditional solstice bonfire, and include dancing and singing with Abenaki storytelling and English traditional ritual dancing.” More info:

Wishing everyone a good Labor Day, and we will resume classes on Tuesday.
