The Great Outdoors
Looking out my window this week, I saw Olivia and her Upper School students spending time preparing the school’s garden for winter. I was struck yet again by how fortunate we are that our students get to spend so much time outside, both on campus and off, and we are loving this fall weather! The 3rd grade’s theme for morning meetings this week – what they are learning about Nantucket’s varied habitats – was a reflection of that good fortune. They started the week by sharing the book Stickler Loves the World by Lane Smith, a wonderful tale of a creature made up of sticks who reminds us all to appreciate the simple wonders of nature around us. Later in the week, they quizzed the Lower and Early Schoolers on the various ways in which seeds are dispersed and then took us (virtually) to the beach to talk about erosion. 
It has been an incredibly busy fall with our Head of School search process. Your insights, perspectives, and feedback have been invaluable in shaping the direction of our search. Your active participation, whether it was attending meetings, providing feedback, or engaging in discussions, has made a significant impact. We truly appreciate your dedication to ensuring that we find the best leader to guide our school.
