Antilles Advantage Night, March 3, 2014
Dear Antilles Parents,
Please join us on Monday evening, March 3, at 6 p.m. in Prior Jollek Hall for Antilles Advantage Night. We will begin with a short “State of the School” session where I will give a brief school update and announce three exciting new developments/initiatives. This will be followed by an opportunity to visit your child(ren)’s grade level next year and talk with the teachers about their educational program—this gives you a chance to learn more about the various learning events and special things for your family to look forward to next year.
See you in PJ Hall!
For The Hurricanes,
Michael Hughes, Ph. D.
Head of School
Taylor Canfield '07 is the subject of a 2 page article in the March/April 2014 edition of Sailing World Magazine, pages 32-34. The article focuses on Canfield's run up to the top of the match racing world, as the rookie winner of the 2014 Alpari World Match Racing Tour. Canfield, who was part of the founding Antilles School Sailing Team, see article in 2013 Hurricane Tracker, first emerged as a top world class sailor, while still a student at Boston College. The author of the article, Andy Rice, asks, how does one make such a meteoric rise? Canfield cites that growing up in the Virgin Islands afforded him freedom and independence. Along with two really good friends and sailing buddies, Cy Thompson '06 and Thomas Barrows '06, they pushed each other to excel in a way that was play for them - and not under any coaches or adult's direction. He sees this as the biggest difference between youth sailing in the Virgin Islands and elsewhere. Antilles School might have given Canfield roots from which to grow, but he certainly has grown world class wings that allow him to soar to even higher heights in the sailing world. He now is accepting a growing number of invitations to race professionally and show the world best how it's done. Congratulations, Taylor!
Courtesy is being polite and having good manners. When you speak and act courteously, you give others a feeling of being valued and respected. Greet people pleasantly. Bring courtesy home. Your family needs it most of all. Courtesy helps life go smoothly.
Being forgiving is giving someone another chance after they have done something wrong. Everyone makes mistakes. Instead of revenge, make amends. Forgive yourself too. Instead of feeling hopeless after a mistake, decide to act differently, and have faith that you can change.
