Cocktail Parties to Support Annual Fund
Dear Antilles Parents,
You will be receiving invitations to join your fellow parents in your child’s grade level for “Cocktails in the Courtyard” (wine and cheese) to learn about the Antilles Fund. The events are broken down by levels of the school:
Toddler and Early Learning Center Parents: November 5
Lower School Parents: November 12
Middle SchoolParents: November 18
Upper SchoolParents: November 19
Join us for an evening of fellowship with your fellow Antilles community members, a short talk about the Annual Fund and its purpose, and a chance to enjoy the beautiful Courtyard setting. There will be an opportunity to make a donation to support the school at the event or you may choose to do so at a later date. (There will be no “high pressure” sales pitch!)
We hope to see you there!
For The Hurricanes,
Michael Hughes, Ph. D.
Head of School
Reliability means that others can depend on you. You keep your commitments and give your best to every job. You are responsible. You don’t forget, and you don’t need to be reminded. Other people can relax knowing things are in your reliable hands.
Mark your calendars for the Middle School theatre production: Myth Adventures by Eric Coble. Dionysus shares with the audience four of his favorite stories: King Midas, Orpheus, Daedalus and Icarus, and Theseus and the Minotaur.
In the Antilles Lower School, we utilize the Character Counts program to develop ethical core values and behaviors in our students. The Six Pillars of Character include: respect, citizenship, fairness, caring, responsibility and trustworthiness. This month, our students focused on the pillar of respect, which culminated with a presentation by the 3rd graders in both the Friday Morning Meeting in the Lower School and the Sing-A-Long in the ELC. Students wore yellow to show they were “radiating respect.” Click Read More to view more photos.
The Annual Antilles School Fall Festival will be held on October 25 from 4-8pm. The festival will feature the "Great Pumpkin Patch," with jack-o-lantern style pumpkins for sale and a carnival-like atmosphere of games, food, crafts, and fun for all ages. Flip Switch Band will keep everyone in a festive mood. Admission: $5 adults, $3 children under 18. No coolers or alcohol, please.
Every year, the Head of School invites donors to the school to thank them for their support. This year's Headmaster's Reception was held last Saturday evening at Paradise Point. Dr. Hughes' guests enjoyed a champagne welcome while riding the tram up to the mountain top, the magnificent view from the summit, hors d'oeurves catered by Paradise Point, and each others' company. It was a fun-filled evening and a nice way to say "THANK YOU!" to some of the most generous donors to Antilles School. CLICK to download the Annual Report. PHOTOS
