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,

BOO! We had an exciting day of Halloween fun at the Prep. Warm thanks to all of our parent volunteers who decorated doors, organized small parties, gave their time to lead activities or contribute supplies towards the fun. We appreciate your support.

I had a very fruitful meeting last week with a parent who reached out with some feedback. It was an enjoyable discussion during which we shared thoughts and ideas. We will make some adjustments for next fall based on her perspective. Please feel welcome to reach out to the Prep Leadership Team with book suggestions, ideas, and your feedback on any aspect of our operations or your son’s experience. 

You may have noticed the sandwich boards outside the Prep with a list of upcoming dates and events; we hope this information is helpful. It can also be found on our website calendar or Google calendar. Should you ever notice a discrepancy in information, please let us know so that we may correct it. 

As our Fall Plays were presented this week, the garden is closing up for winter and the first Athletics season comes to a close, I would like to say a warm ‘thanks’ to my colleagues who led these Co-curricular activities, and to the parent volunteers who supported us. 

Articles to pay special attention to this week: Sign Up for Y6 and 7 three-way conferences, Support Services at the Prep, Winter Co-Curricular choices, and an upcoming, optional, parent workshop to explain assessment and grading in the MYP.

With my regards,

Tanya Sweeney
