News and Notes from Estabrook School | May 25, 2017
Dear Estabrook Families,
As we turn the corner toward June, it is hard not to notice that last day of school circled in red on our calendars. It is the sign of a chapter coming to a close, and the anticipation of what comes next.
In air travel, pilots know that a smooth landing is an essential part of any flight. Here at Estabrook, our wheels are down, and we're preparing to land the plane. The flight is still in progress, but, we can see the runway out of our windows.Landing the plane is an important part of our flight, too.
The next few weeks will be packed with trips, celebrations, showcases and more. Helping students bring closure to the year, reflect on all they have done and celebrate all they have accomplished is of paramount importance. For all our students, the end of the year will signal a transition as well. For everyone, it is on to a new class and new teacher. For many, it is moving on to a new school. Regardless of the next chapter, the faculty, staff and I are committed to supporting our students, celebrating their success and helping them plan for what is next.
I hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend--the last break before our seats and tray tables return to their upright positions!
