eNews Issue 2

Thank you to everyone who came out this morning for the Back to School Coffee, especially our Buddy Family volunteers. But whether or not you’re an official New Family Buddy, please reach out to the newest members of our community!
Our online directory can help with that. Family addresses and phone numbers are easy to find in the Veracross 'Directory'. Please note that the default setting in VC hides your household information from view. In order for people to find you and your children, it is necessary to scroll to the bottom of 'Update Family Profile' and opt in by editing and saving your selected settings. If this setting is not selected, your contact information will not be visible. For families whose information is visible, the 'Directory'>'Nearby Families' tab will help you find others living close to you.
A highlight on campus this week was a visit from Dave Keeling. Faculty, staff and students in the Secondary School all had a chance to spend some time with Dave talking about learning and how we learning. Davie is a vibrant thinker, knowledgeable in the brain science about how we learn, and is particularly engaging on topics such as curiosity, courage and confidence. And he reminded us that Socrates once said that life and learning should be a festival of the mind. What a great thought for the start of a new school year!
