Head of School Weekly Email: Roundtable Kudos to Students, Advisors & School Community

Dear TA Families,

Kudos to our whole school community for the many ‘wins’ we experienced today. Each grade level had their own agenda and version of the day, so check in with your student to get details about specific activities and personal highlights. A common theme across all the grades: Taking time out of our normal routines to celebrate students and their unique journeys, accomplishments, learning, and growth.

Congratulations especially to the Class of 2024 for taking the senior roundtable experience to the next level this year – and to their junior classmates who showed up ready to participate as awesome audience members. A special thanks to senior parents who attended today too!

The next Roundtable Day is May 31, when the other half of the senior class will present their portfolios. Many 9th and 10th graders will also be presenting that day, in a more informal setting with their advisories. I covered Roundtable Days in depth last week, so take a look back at that email if you want to learn more. And, as always, please reach out if you have any questions – I am a resource, as is your student’s advisor. Let’s make May 31 another win!

In other news …

  • Tonight! The Class of 2025 is looking forward to hosting high school students and their guests for the Spring Semi-Formal this evening. The Masquerade Ball takes place on campus from 7:30-9:30 pm.
  •  Next week! High school course registration forms are due next week for the Class of 2026 (on Monday) and the Class of 2027 (on Friday). The counseling department is on hand to support students through the process, so please reach out to Mark, Molly, or Tippi as needed. 
  • The Class of 2028 parents and guardians are invited to attend an evening session (online), hosted by the counseling department on April 17 – details sent out earlier this week from Molly Dugan-Sullivan.

Stay dry out there – and let’s hope these April showers bring awesome May flowers.
