Dear Lake Forest Community High School,
Here is your last chance to send a quick GOOD GOBBLE to a faculty or staff member. I plan to give these to our staff right before they leave next week, and I am hopeful I can flood their inboxes. These take seconds to write, but go such a long way!
If you haven’t gotten your Rhinoceros tickets, there is still time! Our students and directors work so hard to bring shows that are challenging and unique–which is a great reminder to all of us that learning happens in all aspects of life: In classrooms; in business; on the field; on the court; on the stage. Let us always find something to learn.
A great learning opportunity for me arose from one of our parents: He made an offer for me to be introduced to a local Rabbi to learn more about what our Jewish students have experienced; what trends and challenges continue to emerge; and what schools are doing to address and support these students. I met with Rabbi Moffic yesterday, and I was inspired by a vision of open conversations with an interfaith community panel and what that might mean for furthering our vision of One Lake Forest High School. I have said over and over that we are better and stronger when we are together, and in understanding what makes us different, I believe that there is always an opportunity to find common ground and mutual respect for each other.
Next week, we will not have a Fan(sc)out as we will be with our families enjoying the holiday! I, for one, am thankful to live and work in this community–it is a special place, and I will never get tired of writing that!

Lake Forest Sailors Show Up Strong At High School Nationals
Lake Forest, IL: Lake Forest Sailing has a strong record of representation at the singlehanded High School Sailing Nationals (Cressy Trophy), and this year they made history. The 2022 competition was held in Norfolk Virginia at Old Dominion University on October 29th & 30th and was the first time in national high school sailing history that a single high school qualified 4 sailors for the Cressy Trophy.
Lake Forest High School sailors Henry Scholz (’23), Tristan McDonald (’24), Charlie Gish (’24), and Owen Kohut (’25) qualified for the Cressy Trophy by finishing top three at the Midwest Qualifier in Cleveland in September. Henry, Tristan, and Charlie swept the Full Rig podium (in that order) and Owen finished 2nd in the Radial Rig to earn their berths for the National Championship. There are 2 fleets in singlehanded scholastic racing, Radial Rig (ILCA 6) and Full Rig (ILCA 7). The Radial Rig is for sailors under 160lbs, and the Full Rig is for sailors over 160lbs. The only other difference is the size of the sail used.
Day 1 of Nationals in Virginia provided strong, shifty winds at 16-20kts and flat water. Day 2 was slightly less windy but still shifty and windy enough for fitness to play a leading role. At Nationals the sailors compete in 18 back-to-back races that each last approximately 20 minutes. “It is full heart rate sailing for all 18 races, especially with the breeze we saw,” said Coach Will Howard. “If you make one small error, you’re in last place; the fleets are extremely competitive and every point counts.” As Sunday’s racing progressed, first through third were relatively untouchable and the real battle was happening in the full rig fleet between the 4th and 9th place boats. The order changed after each race, and it all came down to the last race. Henry Scholz finished 4th overall, Tristan McDonald 5th, and Charlie Gish 9th. Owen Kohut finished 14th in the Radial Fleet and won the final race with a massive lead. “This was Owen’s first Cressy Trophy, so 14th in the windy conditions we had is a really great result,” said Coach Howard.
Four sailors competing in Nationals is an achievement within itself, and it was strengthened by the LFHS sailors’ finishes. “Having 4 sailors at the Cressy Trophy is something no one had seen before. One other school (Ransom Everglades, Miami) had 2 sailors and the rest of the competitors were the sole representative from their school. A large part of our sailor’s success at this regatta is because our team back home is so deep and dedicated. Henry and Tristan both finishing in the top 5 was awesome and Charlie in the top 9 shows the depth of talent at Lake Forest Sailing,” said Coach Howard. “For all four sailors, this is a rewarding achievement earned through a lot of hard, year-round training and competition. As I always say and have proven every step of the way, the best is yet to come!”
The Lake Forest Sailing program of the Lake Forest Parks and Recreation Department provides training and racing opportunities for all youth interested in committing to the process and offers a wide range of water sports opportunities at our beautiful lakefront. The Lake Forest Parks & Recreation Department is committed to providing residents of all ages positive experiences through a variety of high-quality programs, activities, and services under the direction of professional and dedicated staff who are responsive to the needs of the community.

Lake Forest High School presents this year's Frosh-Soph Show: Rhinoceros. Tickets are now available at bit.ly/LFHS-Rhino22. Spread the word!
The sublime is confused with the ridiculous in this savage commentary on the human condition, a staple of every theatre classroom and 20th-century drama. A small town is besieged by one roaring citizen who becomes a rhinoceros and proceeds to trample on the social order. As more citizens are transformed into rhinoceroses, the trampling becomes overwhelming, and more and more citizens become rhinoceroses. One sane man, Berenger, remains, unable to change his form and identity.

Tuesday, November 29, 2022, 7:00 PM, Mapping Your College Search: Finding the Right Fit and the Right Price
Francis W. Parker School, Heller Auditorium, 2233 N. Clark St., Chicago, 60614. Interviewer: Andrea Mondragón.
NOTE: No registration or proof of vaccination is required. Masks are recommended but not required.
FAN is excited to present two of the nation’s top experts on the college search process together on stage for a conversation that will cover all the bases, from admissions to financial aid.
With the same passion, smarts, and humor that infuses his personal finance column in The New York Times, Ron Lieber’s latest book, The Price You Pay for College: An Entirely New Road Map for the Biggest Financial Decision Your Family Will Ever Make, offers families a much-needed guide to help them navigate this difficult and often confusing journey that has only been compounded by a global pandemic and the resulting chaos in higher education. Lieber explains who pays what, and why, and how the financial aid system got so complicated. He also pulls the curtain back on merit aid, a complicated and often opaque form of tuition discounting that most colleges now use to compete with their peers.
Wednesday, November 30, 2022, 7:00 PM, Who Gets In and Why: Inside College Admissions
Adlai E. Stevenson High School, Performing Arts Center, 1 Stevenson Dr., Lincolnshire, IL 60069. Interviewer: Andy Borst, Ph.D.
NOTE: No registration or proof of vaccination is required. Masks are recommended but not required.
In his 2020 best-selling book Who Gets In and Why, named among the 100 Notable Books of the year by The New York Times, Selingo shares what he learned from months inside the college admission process. Most of us probably believe that this process is about merit, grades, and SAT scores, rewarding the best students, but Selingo presents a more complicated truth, showing that who gets in is more frequently about the college’s agenda than about the applicant. In a world where thousands of equally qualified students vie for a fixed number of spots at elite institutions, admissions officers often make split-second decisions based on a variety of factors—including whether a student will enroll if accepted.
