Newsletter – June 8

Summer is almost here!!

I’m looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible at Closing Ceremony next week as we bid farewell to another school year.  It’s hard to believe that, for me, it has been 5 years already — an anniversary of sorts.  It is quite amazing to look back on all the many things accomplished in one year, let alone what this school has achieved in five.  The many faces that have been involved in our growth and development over the years will forever be etched in our memories.  Schools are a transitory place, faced with understanding the nature of growth and transition.  This may be why we often use words like “journey” and “pathway” to describe the experience of education.  Education, after all, is a means to an end, a bridge more than a destination.

To that end, we wish everyone well on their upcoming journeys.  Whether a summer sojourn and a quick return back for the next school year, a trek of greater distance to your next adventure, or the journey returning to home country, we wish all well for a restful and renewing summer vacation filled with fond memories.

My thanks to all for your partnership and counsel.  Whenever the opportunity emerges, the community has always been ready to respond.  This makes me anxious for August already and the onset of a new year!!

For those who are departing to other places far and away, I remind you as I always do:  Once a Penguin, Always a Penguin!!

The 2015-2016 Closing Ceremony will be held Wednesday, June 15 at 11.00 in the North Gym.  Parents are welcome!  The event will live streamed at the following link:
