A Message From Dr. Ricks

Dear Parents and Friends,

What a great time to be a Gator! I am continuously impressed by the level of dedication put forth by your children. The 2nd Grade Biography Day presentations were wonderful. I heard from several students that they had no idea that the entire school would be in attendance to hear their speeches, but I would have never known from the calm, collected way that each spoke. Thanks to Mrs. Guerriero and Mrs. Starr for the countless hours spent in preparation for this event. Another masterful presentation was the 5th Grade's retelling of the American Colonies and the birth of our Constitution. The students sang, danced, and recited pieces of American History with great confidence and vigor. It is good for the soul to see children having such a good time presenting something that they are truly proud of creating. Thank you to Mrs. Knight and Mrs. Broussard for leading them through this process.

I have heard from all of our students and teachers who are away from the campus on various field trips, and everyone has had a good experience. What a wonderful way to begin a much needed Spring Break! I hope that you all have safe travels and get some much-needed down time. The return to school brings the Gala and all of the happy madness that comes with it! We have worked hard to provide you with great auction packages and creative student projects; I am confident that you will find something to suit your taste!

With warmest regards,

Dr. Beth J. Ricks

Head of School
