Reenroll Your Child for the 2019-2020 School Year!
Due Date: March 1, 2019
Dear Antilles Families,
The resilience of children is truly awe-inspiring. School opened in August and it has been a tale of two worlds. On one hand, our students have not missed a beat putting on two theater performances, running the fifth grade Snack Shack to fund their end-of-year boat trip, winning athletic championships, and distinguishing themselves academically - just to name a few accomplishments. Our youngest students have also learned patience, letters, numbers, and songs while continuing to be role models for all of us on how to find joy in learning.
On the other hand, we are only 17 months past the devastating hurricanes, and rebuilding and repairing continues to be a challenging endeavor. We have spent over $2 million repairing damages from the storms and have more projects to complete this summer. I am pleased that with every repair, we have made an effort to restore the facility to at least the condition that it was pre-storms. Coming back "better and stronger" necessitates a facility to match!
One of the biggest challenges last year was losing so many of our students. Every child and every family is integral to the fabric of the School community. I have been pleased that many have returned this year and am also grateful to the many new families who have joined us. It has been wonderful to walk around school day in and day out and see the students at work. They are painting, acting, solving math problems, asking questions, navigating complicated social landscapes, building their confidence, and testing their limits. As we create educational experiences for your children, their learning is the essential focus. As a school, we have the good fortune of having so many teachable moments every day – some in the classrooms, some on the playground, and some in other areas of school life.
As we head into reenrollment season, I hope that your children will return and be a part of the continued, exciting rebuilding period for the School. We have resumed plans to roll out a strategic plan for the next three years, and will continue to take advantage of some of the repair work to enhance our facilities. Thank you for sharing your children with us and embarking on this important educational partnership. My hope is that this journey carries your children through graduation from Antilles.
