I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Fall Break and are refreshed and ready for all the activities that lie ahead during one of the busiest times of the year, the span between Fall Break and the Winter Holidays.
I wanted to thank everyone in the broader community for their thoughts and support during a difficult time for me and my family. I just returned to Warsaw today after helping my mother endure surgery that was necessary due to a recent fall. Surgery went very well earlier this week and she is resting now and moving to a rehabilitation center later this week. I’m very happy to be home with my family and community. Helping your parents during the sunset years is often daunting and I know many who have shared similar experiences with me. Being caretakers is at the core of family and whether we are parents caring for children or adults caring for our parents, the importance of the family bond remains the same – one of love, compassion, and support without limit. Give everyone in your family a big hug tonight! I know I will!
Our amazing Admissions Office is preparing for their first Open House of the school year on November 15th at 10:00 a.m. If you know of anyone who is considering applying to join ASW, this is a wonderful opportunity for them to get to know the school and learn more about the programs that we offer. Please encourage them to attend. Have them contact the Admissions Department at firstname.lastname@example.org in order to RSVP in advance.
New and Aspiring Board Member Training
A reminder to mark your calendars for the first session this year of the New and Aspiring Board Member training. Like last year, I’ll be leading a session on School and non-profit board membership. If you have an interest in a position on the ASW board, as a leader in PTO, or if you are looking to serve on other non-profit boards in the future, this training will help provide some of the key understandings associated with good governance in a non-profit setting. The content of this training has been expanded to also include insights into ASW specifically. We’ll explore selected ASW Board documents and will give some insight into ASW structures and policy. Our first session will take place as follows:
