Dear Islander Families,
We wish our Islanders and their friends and families a wonderful holiday with ample time spent with loved ones. We hope our students will exploit opportunities to engage in the activities and endeavors which connect them with others and themselves--hikes, community service, walks on the beach, travel, long conversations, good reads, music, movies, satisfying meals, and downtime and sleep (etc.).
Today we continued a wonderful Islander tradition, “Home for the Holidays,” in which recent graduates/alumni returned to school, serving on panels in classrooms to share their college and career experiences. We are grateful for the ongoing connections between our students and their former peers and staff, which foster learning experiences and opportunities to reflect.
We look forward to greeting our students in the New Year on January 3rd, 2017!
