  • Middle and Upper School Awards Ceremony

    Posted June 2, 2015

    On Tuesday, June 2nd, students were recognized for their great academic, athletic, and community achievements, at the 58th Annual Middle and Upper School Awards Ceremony. In her opening remarks Dr. Christine Heine, Head of School, said:

    “All of us in this room tonight faced challenges this year. Many like to call these challenges opportunities. Life is predictable in the way that it never offers a long stretch of time without presenting us with moments of growth—with opportunities. Besides, why would we want to live a life that did not force us to evolve, to grow, and to become more of who we are meant to be? How we face these challenges ultimately says more about us than any other thing."
