Dear Buckingham Friends School community members and friends of BFS,
I am excited to launch my new Head of School’s blog. From time to time, posts will be created and published and an email will be sent to you with a link so that you can access and read it if you choose.
My intention is to use this communications tool as an opportunity to share a wide variety of topics and ideas with you. It will not serve as a newsletter, nor is it meant to replace “Just the Facts” or my plans to send a letter to community every once in a while. However, at times, I may write about goings on at the school and other stories about BFS. Expect me to also occasionally share an article I’ve just read, information about a favorite book or one that has caught my attention, reflections about Friends education, a moment in a classroom, an accomplishment of a teacher and/or class, stories about child development, thoughts about parenting, and more. After all, it’s a blog! And, whenever possible, expect a picture or two, or three…
With the hope that it informs you more about what I am thinking about and value as your Head of School, that it invites you to engage with me and others about what is important to you, and that it contributes to the level and quality of discourse and community we value at BFS, I am happy to share this with you.
PS In closing, I want to express my sincere regard for your children. I am thoroughly enjoying observing and getting to know them as students and members of our school community. Their love of learning, their enthusiasm for the programs we offer, and their interest in and appreciation of one another is impressive. I look forward to greeting them each day.
PPS It’s not too late to RSVP to attend SPARK! at the Honey Hollow Education Center from 6:30-8:00 pm THIS FRIDAY, September 21. It would mean so much to me to have you join us (111 rsvp’s thus far!) for a new tradition of building community at BFS as we begin the school year!
