It was an incredibly busy Friday. Starting with the Headmaster’s List Breakfast (by the way, henceforth it will be “High Honors” and not the Headmaster’s List); it was followed by a seemingly endless string of meetings and other events. The day was a blur. Happily, the evening’s Headmaster’s Reception was most enjoyable and the turnout was excellent. However, I think we may change the format next year in an effort to better welcome our new families.

By the way, that afternoon, I met with a couple of student leaders who led the initiative this year to establish a gay-straight alliance at Gill. Tracey Barrett, our Diversity Coordinator, had approached me about this earlier in the summer. It is important that we support all of our students here and I welcome their contributions to the community.
Gill St. Bernard’s is a private, coeducational day school for students age three through grade 12, located in suburban New Jersey. Each of the three school divisions provides a vigorous, meaningful and age-appropriate curriculum, and all students benefit from the environmental learning opportunities that exist on our 208-acre campus.
