In my new role as Dean of Student Life, I am especially looking forward to the opportunity to work closely with our community of 5th—12th-grade students. My goal is to provide social opportunities for our students and community to continue to flourish.
Over 340 educators and administrators from the Arkansas Nonpublic School Accrediting Association (ANSAA) gathered at The New School on Friday, August 9, to learn from practicing clinical psychologist and The New York Times best-selling author Dr. Wendy Mogel.
This week I begin one of the formal aspects of my listening tour - parent focus groups. We have sent out an email to all parents, with an invitation to sign up for one of the first four opportunities. I will conduct multiple 45-minute parent focus groups over the next few months. Each parent is invited to sign up for one focus group sometime this fall, and each focus group is capped at 12 people. I will come in with a small number of prepared questions and take notes on the responses I hear in each group. My goal is to get to know all of you and to hear your perspectives on The New School.
We're delighted you're a part of the SAGE Dining community! A new school year is an exciting time. For us at SAGE, it means new opportunities to delight the senses inspire minds and foster community.
We can't wait to show you in person the many ways a SAGE dining experience is so much more than just lunch.
Alumna of The New School Katherine Pritchard published her first installment in her "Nature's Words" book series this summer.
"From a Flower to a Garden" is a collection of Pritchard's poetry that demonstrates her progression in the quality of poetic skill and mental health. The collection consists of poems written throughout her teenage years up through her first year of college. The poems are centered around her struggles with mental health, abuse, self-identity and making the choice for recovery.
"My time at The New School provided me with so many wonderful memories. I still remember each of my teachers and the amazing bond I had with them and how they impacted my life. I am grateful for the way the school helped shape me as a person," remarked Pritchard.
