Heads Up

Welcome to Heads Up, your one-stop source for news about your son’s upcoming activities and events.

Message from Tanya Sweeney, Head, Preparatory School

Dear Prep Families,

It has been an exciting week thus far! Tomorrow, Friday, we welcome our SK students for their first day. On Monday September 9, we will pick up speed and settle into our first full week of classes.

I encourage you to read the articles in this week’s Heads Up as there is some valuable information among them. Of note are the upcoming ‘Settling In Interviews’ between Advisers and parents, so please mark that date on your calendars.

Looking forward to a great year ahead!

Tanya Sweeney
