The Budding Warmth of Spring

It’s that time of year: admitted students checking us out; college acceptances arriving for our Seniors; and April weather peeking its balmy head above this winter’s cold!

I hope many of you can join us at our Admitted Student Reception this Sunday, April 6, from 4-6 p.m. in the SMG atrium and theater; please let our Admission Office know if you can attend. It’s a cast of thousands, and gives our prospective freshmen a great opportunity not only to talk to current students, parents and faculty, but also to get a sense of the cohort they’d be joining as classmates and friends for four years. I’ve always found it to be one of our most uplifting events.

And I’m pleased to report that our Seniors all have a home for next year, and many will spend the next few weeks making decisions about their exciting choices. Later this month, the final versions of their Senior Theses will be due, followed in early May by their oral presentations. We’re in the chute to Commencement now!

Perhaps most telling, the cruel winter has finally broken, and at last we can enjoy the budding warmth of spring.

On that note, have a great week!

WARM  regards,
James S. Berkman
Head of School
