The Fourth Quarter

Here we are, beginning the fourth quarter. It is amazing to me how quickly the school year goes by. We are getting ready for Spring Mini-Courses, the Spring Performance, Prom, Senior Dinner, and, of course, Graduation. There’s a lot to do in the next two months, especially for our seniors who are completing the Graduation by Exhibition process.

However, as I think about the seniors and their transition into the next stage of their lives, I often reflect on how much each one of them has matured and developed . They are turning into adults and I couldn’t be more proud of them. Stacey Cunitz, Director of College Counseling, will soon share the growing list of colleges and universities that have accepted our seniors. It’s an impressive list.

As an educator, it makes me reflect on a some advice that I was recently given and something I believe we do exceptionally well at Crefeld - to see young people as who they really are and not judge them on the behaviors that they sometimes display. That’s what we do, every single day.
