US Director Letter: February 17
Posted 02/17/2017 10:00AM

Dear Upper School Families,

This week at GDS is marked by the tradition of Candygrams.  Candygrams are an initiative of the club Operation Smile which raises awareness and funds to provide safe surgery to children with cleft lip and cleft palate.  The club raised over $2000 with Candygrams and they spread good cheer among friends and colleagues at GDS.  The notes of kindness are always appreciated (and the chocolate helps too!).  Candygrams are a good reminder of the power of positive feedback.  Who doesn’t smile when someone says “thanks for being my friend,”  “thanks for your hard work,” or “thanks for making me laugh.”  

Students and faculty are deeply engrossed in semester two.  If your student has a grade below 73, they will have a comment in Netclassroom as of today.  We hope that comments at this early point in the semester can help students make adjustments that will improve their grade over the semester.

In addition to the focus on this semester, faculty and staff are busy preparing for the 2017-18 curriculum guide to be published in anticipation for the student-advisor-teacher conferences on April 3.  Please mark that day on your calendar as this is the time when students will be making course requests for next year.  

Please make note that there is no school on Monday, February 20.  The Upper School has school on Tuesday February 21 with a regular start at 8:15, and then on Wednesday, February 22 we start at 10:15. If you have children in multiple divisions, the Upper School schedule is different from the Lower and Middle School. 

Have a great weekend! 


Robin Schenck, Ph.D.
Interim Upper School Director
