FROM THE BHS HEAD OF SCHOOL
Hi, BHS Parents, Guardians, and Caretakers,
We enter the final full week of the 2020-21 school year tomorrow, and the kids keep chugging along. They are more than alright after a short year in amount of days (170 versus 180) but long...in...just...about...every...other...way.
Last Sunday at this time, we were sweating and celebrating the Class of 2021 at Fisher Hill Reservoir Park, a beautiful location for spreading out and offering wonderful sightlines and views. In the center sat our 2021 graduates, grinning often and bearing the heat too.
Huge thanks to Parks and Open Space and the DPW, the Brookline Police Department, community volunteers, Brookline Interactive Group, Interstate Rental Service, our BHS senior deans and administrators, and the many clerical, custodial, and faculty staff members who pitched in.
The Class of 2021 deserved something special, and Sunday's event offered a whole lot of joy, especially as the graduates crossed the stage and received their diplomas.
BlackBoard Updates A-coming
At the beginning of this week, I will be sharing several updates via BlackBoard: spring athletics and postseason play, the renovation and expansion project and timeline, end of year course material returns, time on learning information and planning, and a few other pieces.
For now, I hope your students are sensing summer coming and some respite from the school year pace and pattern. I know I find myself wanting my own children to slow down some when school ends. We all have work to do and projects to take on. Rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation are also critical after 16 months of unprecedented uncertainty, change, and challenges. I am grateful for our students who have navigated this with us and for the adults in our shifting, blurring, domains (school, home, etc.).
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday,
Head of School
