As we close out winter and head into Spring Break, I’m writing to update you on the progress we have made towards implementing the recommendations from our recent safety and security audit. Our goal is to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the school population by establishing a safe and secure school environment and increasing our capacity to respond in the event of a crisis.
Head of School Updates
Today, I am so pleased to be writing to update you, our CDS community, on a few specific areas of interest as we enter the second half of the school year, and to extend my gratitude for the strong community partnership that makes Carolina Day a place of excellence.
At Carolina Day, we’re preparing our students for an ambitious, purpose driven life, well past their time here on campus—for a future world with jobs, careers, and challenges that are being developed even as they learn.
Remarkably, last week marked the end of the first trimester here at Carolina Day. I am so pleased to be writing to update you, our CDS community, on a few specific areas of accomplishment this trimester, and to extend my gratitude for the strong community partnership that makes Carolina Day a place of excellence for our valued students, with whom we are privileged to be entrusted.
In this morning's Convocation address, Head of School Stephanie Whitney included within her remarks a quote from Adam Grant, organizational psychologist and author of “Think Again,” who said that our most creative and original thinkers are willing to try new things, take calculated risks, and don’t give up when they face a road block. “They know that in the long run, our biggest regrets are not actions but our inactions.”
