New Parent Orientation

On Monday, August 28th, Étude High School and Middle School welcomed new parents for New Parent Orientation. The event started at 5:30pm, when advisors and families gathered in the cafeteria to enjoy seasonal soups made by our staff. Children were then invited to participate in MAKER Break, while parents got together to learn more about our Advisory program and the role of Advisors as someone who is, to students, "on their case, and on their side." 

Parents had an opportunity to review the High School Communication Overview and Middle School Communication Overview, and they heard about our new Mission and Credo from Principal, Ted Hamm. To close, our Dean of Culture, Mike Q. Hanlon, lead parents in an arts-infused reflection on Habits of Professionalism, where parents were challenged to interpret one of their strengths through a paper sculpture. (See slides and images below.)

As a reflection on the event, parents shared the value of having an opportunity to get to know their child's Advisor as well as meet other parents. We look forward to welcoming parents back on Monday, September 25th for an overview of Skyward and how we use it to communicate students' evidence of learning on each academic standard.

Students attended plenary sessions in which one group from each school presented their project in front of the entire conference group, a Q&A with keynote speaker Margaret Atwood, and two gallery walks compiled of the creations of all of the participating schools.

As clusters of students and staff alike filter into the IDEAS Academy Drama Room, there is animated chatter that is only heightened by an air of anticipation. An advisory cohort gathers in a tight circle in the front of the room, heads bowed closely together to shield their secrets from the rest of the group. As the entirety of the school settles, a student steps ahead of the group and hollers:
