Head of School Weekly Email: Gratitude for a Full Week

Dear TA Families,

Lots of gratitude to share, looking back at this full week:

• For our amazing teachers and staff as we wrap up Teacher Appreciation Week. 

• For our generous parents for their help providing goodies and flowers for the week.

• For the hardworking students who provided service to their community on Wednesday, and, in turn, raised over $5,000 for an orphanage and school in Kenya. And to the ODW Club members for leading this initiative.

• And to our community, who supported ODW, and, additionally, participated in our spring fundraiser and helped us to raise $40,000 for TA’s annual fund this week.

Happy Spring to all!

In gratitude,

Carrie Brennan, Head of School
