Head of School Weekly Notes

Farewells & Celebrations

And as another year winds to a close, today was a day of celebration. We celebrated the students for the inquiry, inspiration, impact and inclusivity they bring to our lives every day. We celebrated them for enjoying their successes and learning from their challenges. We celebrated them for their humor, their compassion, their insight and their joy. We said our sad farewells to the students and staff moving on. We shared excitement for the future pathways ahead. NIS is a very special community. We are diverse and inclusive and we make the story of our school together. Today was a day to reflect and share in all that has been achieved in this crazy year. We still had COVID this year, but we didn’t let it get in the way of the NIS spirit, and today we could look back on a year in which we found ways to connect, collaborate, inquire, inspire and have impact.

To all our NIS families, on behalf of the entire NIS staff, THANK YOU! Thank you for being a part of our NIS story. Whether you are returning next year or your family is moving on to new adventures know that you will always be a part of our school. It has been an honor for us to teach, work with, and learn from such wonderful students this year.  

A very happy summer to you all!
