I am proud to be a Bengal.

Yes, faculty, parents, students, and staff … we are all part of this community that we call Bengal Nation and all hold a stake in making it great and singing its praises.  I don’t know that I can list all of the reasons that being a Bengal makes me ferklempt (Yiddish, for being overcome with emotion), but in the last few weeks alone, I was proud of our students and how they came together as a community to show their spirit and raise money for Bengal Games.  I watched a number of young high school students donate blood at the first opportunity their age would allow.  We had students fight hard on the field in the Face-Off Against ALS Challenge against Page, and our drama students put on yet another remarkable show.  I am sure you can add to this list of accolades and boasts.

Dear Lower School Parents, 

Spring is trying SO hard to get here! As we all make preparations for Spring Break after thankfully escaping Winter Storm Stella, I am reminded about how much fun it is to be at Greensboro Day School. On Wednesday, we gathered as an entire school to take a photo in the Dillard Gym. The green and gold energy was unmistakable! As you are reading this, 3rd graders are preparing for a North Carolina feast connected to their study of our great state, complete with bluegrass music. When we return, we will all have the chance to kick up our heels at the Soiree. I am going, are you? It is sure to be the event of the season, and I hope to see you there!

As the seasons begin to change, we begin to make plans for the next school year.  It is a time we hear from teachers who are making life changes. Lisa Dai, our Mandarin teacher, is going to be moving to Connecticut with her husband, Tim.  She asked me to share her gratitude for the opportunity to work in such a warm, welcoming community with such eager and engaged students. We are so grateful for the wonderful work Lisa has done with our Lower School children, and we wish her well in her new adventure.  As you know, we have a sound process for recruiting new faculty, and plans to find a new Mandarin teacher are underway. Stay tuned!

You should have received your enrollment contract via email from Infosnap in the last couple of weeks. If you have not received your child’s contract and/or if you have questions, please don’t hesitate to be in touch with me, the Admissions Department or your child’s teacher. We are excited about what next year has in store!

Whether you are traveling or staying put, I wish you and your family a Spring Break filled with a slower pace, lots of laughter, and plenty of memory making.

See you when we return!

Gillian S. Goodman, M.Ed., M.B.A.
