Letter from the Head: Our Great Community
Tuesday, October 28, 2014

One of the strengths of EFS is its strong sense of community. This was on display recently at our Fall Family Picnic.  So many parents and staff worked so very hard to make that day fun and memorable for our students, parents, alumni, and other community members. A special thanks to Jamie Saperston for putting it all together. Due to a poor weather forecast, there was some trepidation about the turnout, but our families showed us just how much they love being together. Several hundred members of our community spent that day at our petting zoo, riding ponies, picking apples and pumpkins, drinking cider, having fun, and enjoying each other’s company and conversation. It was a great reminder of how special EFS really is.

 
Letter from the Head: Community Service at Elmwood Franklin
Friday, October 3, 2014

As September turns into October, our students are beginning to plan and execute various service learning projects. At Elmwood Franklin School, we teach our students to think beyond. While this has many meanings, one of the purest is to have them think beyond themselves by taking care of others. This lesson is reflected in our school-wide service-learning program, which encourages students to view community service as a way of life and not a requirement.

We are off and running! The 2014-2015 academic year is off to a great start and I want to thank everyone for their positive energy and ideas.

The Prep program has immersed itself in our Reggio Emilia philosophy. I hope the parents are enjoying the frequent communication and the sharing of documentation that is such an important part of Reggio.

The school year is just around the corner, and I wanted to take a moment to fill you in on some important information regarding our parking lot construction and personnel.

Completion of the new parking lot is ahead of schedule and the new lot will be ready for use on September 4, the first day of school!

Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year! I am thrilled to be joining the EFS community this fall as the new Head of School. I have heard it said that August is the Sunday of summer. While your children may be lamenting the close of their summer vacation, I am certain that more than a few of you are excited to begin the school year. I know I am.

I thought I was escaping the heat when we moved up from Maryland, but I think it followed us. This last week has been a burner for sure, but while we enjoy this recent break from the heat, I thought I would also take a break and pen my first letter to you all.
