First, our sincere thanks to parents who participated in Upper School parent conferences this week. It was a wonderful two days of interaction with our key partners and I observed many smiles from both parents and students as they departed following their sessions with teachers, counselors, and administrators. Many thanks to all the administrators, faculty, office staff, and support personnel who helped to make it all possible. There are many pieces to the puzzle of organizing for this and our team did a great job!
Two new items on launch this week:
Please join two new Podcasts that have been launched in recent days. First is a project I started last year, but alas it did not get enough attention. It’s back and you can join in the conversations (audio) on Zimplicity! Two episodes have been posted including some sustainability conversations in Middle School and a Leadership presentation to 5th grade in our ES Tower. Please join us:
Second, a new video podcast with some engaging student talent to share. Modeled after the NPR favorite of many, the Tiny Desk, we are pleased to announce Zimplicity Director’s Desk! – a compilation of student talent, straight from behind the Director’s Desk at ASW. Be sure to check out the performance by the cast of West Side Story!!
We hope you will subscribe and listen for regular new episodes on both of our new channels.
I’ll be joining the PTO meeting on Friday to talk about some strategic work that is beginning. You may have noticed a recent article in the Warrior News on this topic. I’m looking forward to giving general updates on all things ASW, but also engaging parents in some plans to share and work on ideas together that may spark the school’s next strategic project. Please join us to hear about UN Day and to spend some time talking about school.
