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.

US Director Letter: March 17
Posted 03/17/2017 10:00AM

Dear Upper School Families,

Last week I told you that I would not write a PawPrints letter this week as I knew that many of you would already be well on your way to Spring Vacation.  Well, I should have known that life in schools is full of surprises. 

I wanted to let you know before break that Tim Liu will be leaving Greensboro Day School to pursue an opportunity as the Asia Program Manager for the Yale Young Global Scholars program.  Tim and his wife Lisa Dai will be moving to New Haven, CT in June.  Tim has been an asset to Greensboro Day School not only as an instructor of Mandarin Chinese but as a resource to our international students and as a dedicated faculty colleague. 

We are committed to finding a full-time faculty member to continue to build on the foundations that Tim has developed.  I have such great faith in and appreciation for our thorough hiring process.  I shared this process with the Parent Advisory Committee, and I thought it would be helpful for all parents to know about it.  We consider the needs of our students and the ability to provide a rigorous academic program and a classroom environment filled with trust, relationship and a spirit of inquiry.  Similar to the Division Director search, we form committees that review resumes, conduct interviews and invite teachers to campus to learn about GDS and teach a demonstration lesson.  We have already begun the process of inviting candidates to campus to teach classes, and we look forward to communicating with you when a decision is made.

Please enjoy your child’s break.  It is a great opportunity for a pause in our very busy lives.

Sincerely,

Robin Schenck, Ph.D.
Interim Upper School Director
