A Letter from Jennifer A. Grogan, Head of School
2 November 2013
Let me begin by offering my thanks to our PA Chairs for the organization and execution of a FABULOUS Fall Festival. We enjoyed a wonderful morning of fun and activities with the children. We also enjoyed a great deal of support through volunteerism. I thank each of you who took the time to get involved. The event was a true community builder and a great success.
October was a busy and productive month at Weekday. We enjoyed classroom visits and a lovely Potluck Supper at Curriculum Night. The feedback on the teachers’ presentations was extremely positive and affirming from the point of view of the administration. I am fortunate enough to see the good work of our teachers and the profound difference these educators are making in the life of your children each day. I feel the opportunity for our parents to see more and learn more about what is happening in our school is hugely important and I thank you all for joining in this special evening.
I was equally pleased with the wonderful turn out of parents and caregivers for our first Weekday Community Sing. It was a wonderful morning of song and celebration. Our faculty feels strongly that providing opportunities for all the children of Weekday to come together in community should be a priority. I thank you all for acknowledging this and supporting our first of many such gatherings.
Our Parent Teacher Conferences are coming up on Wednesday, November 13th and Thursday, November 14th. Please be sure to secure a time to meet with your child’s teacher if you have not done so already. Friday, November 15th, our teachers will be heading to the 92nd Street Y for a day long conference for Early Childhood Educators. This serves as a wonderful day of professional development for our teachers as they enjoy keynote speeches, workshops and discussions directly related to their important work.
In closing, I invite you to join us at our Thanksgiving Sing on November 26th, at 9:15am. And if I am unable to do so in person, please allow me to wish you all a warm, festive and Happy Thanksgiving, surrounded by good friends and family.
With warm regards,
Jennifer A. Grogan
Head of School
