I always enjoy our opening Parents’ Association Breakfast. It is a chance for me to meet new parents and share a few thoughts as well as my summer reading list. This year’s Parents’ Association president is Cheryl Fritzlo, P ’19, ’21; her comments were very welcoming and set a positive tone for the event.

As a part of my comments, I had the chance to share one of Billy Collins’s poems, “To My Favorite Seventeen-Year-Old High School Girl.” It should be required reading for all parents who have a daughter.
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.
