The end of the school year always feels like a sprint to the finish line at the end of a marathon. We’ve pushed past the runner’s block, we’re so close to the end, and we’re giving everything we’ve got to finish strong. And when we finish we can relax and revel in our accomplishments.
I love living in the southeast where we enjoy the climate changes that come with experiencing four seasons. In the winter it is impossible to see all that is taking place beneath the surface to create the beautiful new blooms that arrive with spring. The arrival of spring signifies new in so…

December. As the song aptly states, “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year.” The days leading up to Christmas are filled with celebration as we attend plays and band/choral concerts, bake our favorite treats, binge-watch cheesy Hallmark movies, and decorate our homes in a way that embodie…
Believe me. I understand. You barely have time to catch your breath during the holidays. This season is filled with busy days and long to do lists. And although it all seems to go by in a blur, there are certain things we always remember.
Thanksgiving is next week! Images of Pilgrims come to mind. The Pilgrims were seekers. They were seeking religious freedom. They sailed to Holland and spent 10 years there before a group of them became disenchanted with the society. So they boarded the Mayflower and set sail for America. The…
I say over and over I want Monroe Country Day School students to love learning. I want students everywhere to run into school with the same excitement they run into Disney World. I often laugh at myself because I can certainly say I did not enter Latin class with the same desire that I enter…

The beginning of every school year is a new opportunity. Students and teachers not only get to start fresh with classes and activities, but as a school community, we also get a chance to reflect on where we’ve been and where we’d like to go in the future. At George Walton Academy, we strive …
