Catherine Steiner-Adair to Present The Big Disconnect: Protecting Childhood and Family Relationships in the Digital Age.

Greensboro Day School will host Catherine Steiner-Adair on April 26 as the McLendon Society Speaker. Dr. Steiner-Adair will help parents understand the ways in which technology and media are putting children at risk at each stage of development, from infancy through young adulthood, and challenging what it means to be a family. 

Drawing on real life stories from her clinical work with children and families and her consulting work with educators and experts across the Country, Dr. Steiner-Adair offers insights and advice that can help parents achieve greater understanding, authority and confidence as they come up against the tech revolution that is unfolding in their living room.

The audience will learn the skills to distinguish between educational, healthy and unhealthy use, and practical strategies for nourishing deep attention, creativity, empathy and meaningful relationships.

Make plans to join us on Wednesday, April 26 at 7 p.m. in the Sloan Theatre for this insightful speaker. This event is open to the public and admission is free.

LS Director Letter: March 17

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.
Lower School Director
