Dear Calverton Families,
We are quickly winding down the school year and I wanted to thank all of you for making my time leading Calverton one of the most enjoyable experiences of my professional career. I also wanted to share some of the exciting enhancements in store for the coming school year.
Calverton School is uniquely positioned to be the premier college prep school in Southern Maryland. And the promise is much greater than that. The groundwork has been laid to position Calverton as a leader, not just regionally, but nationally in global education and to provide our students with unique learning opportunities that truly make the world their classroom. This vision for global education is already evident in many ways, from the One World Village to the International Baccalaureate Programme.Moving forward, the plan is to capitalize on our resources and expand the opportunities that will give Calverton students unparalleled opportunities to experience an education that will prepare them to shape the world in which they will live and work.
Looking ahead to the 2016-17 school year there are several exciting new plans in place:
If every person in the Calverton community donated the cost of a cup of coffee once a month, The Calverton School could raise more than $70,000 a year.
Summer Adventures at The Calverton School are creative, theme-based programs delivered by a professional, energetic staff. Cougar Cubs (ages 3-5) can learn about camping, the ocean, bugs and dinosaurs while our Explorers (ages 6-13) will engage in weekly themed sessions mixing learning with fun field trips.
Thank you for your continued effort in collecting and turning in Box Tops for Education. The CPA has set a goal of reaching $1,000 in Box Top funds for Education, and we please to report that we have raised more than $700!
We are excited to announce the appointment of Christopher Hayes as Calverton's next Head of School, effective July 1, 2016. The search process, which began this past spring, was national in scope, extensive, and thorough. Our search committee reviewed dozens of candidate files, interviewed nine candidates, and invited four finalists to Calverton to meet with members of our community, including faculty, staff, parents, trustees, and others.
Fostering a culture of respect, high expectations, and shared experiences, The Calverton School instills in students intellectual curiosity, personal responsibility, and a strong work ethic to prepare them for higher education and responsible citizenship in a democratic and global community.
