This year the High School Faculty will be joined by two new members, Ms. Nina Renker, who will be our new ELL teacher (replacing Dr. Jackowicz) and Mrs. Amy Stemkoski, who will be teaching biology in grade nine. Ms. Renker is a graduate of Yale University, where she majored in English; Mrs. Stemkoski is a graduate of Harvard University, where she majored in History and Science.

As in the past, freshmen and seniors will be spending three days in Glen Brook the week before school opens; this year’s freshman orientation will take place from Monday, August 25th through Wednesday, August 27th.

I would like to remind all students to wear assembly clothes on the first day of school; also, before purchasing new clothes for school, please re-read the high school dress code in the High School Handbook to be certain that you understand the parameters of school attire. As is customary, the advisors will be addressing their classes at the Opening Assembly. Parents are cordially invited to attend.

In the meantime, enjoy the rest of the summer vacation!
