* Head’s Note
This month’s Core Virtue is courage. If you were to look up this term in the dictionary, you may read a definition like this one: “The state, quality of mind or spirit that enables one to face fears.” As we prepare students for the many uncertainties of the future, it’s obvious to anyone who works in a school that courage is a key ingredient for learning and many other endeavors, a quality future generations will need to cultivate throughout their lives to make a lasting impact and to help the world become a better place.

Parents are invited to join us for coffee and refreshments, along with a casual morning conversation about students’ transition to middle school at Crossroads. Dr. Freeberg and I will provide a general overview of curriculum and activities specific to the middle school experience. Traditionally, this has been an event open to students and parents; this year, we plan to include fifth graders in Fast Forward Day in June, so this event is designed for parents.
We look forward to seeing you there!
When: Friday, 1/19, 8:00
