Alcuin School, a leader in Montessori and International Baccalaureate education, recently kicked off the 2016-2017 academic year at its General Parents' Meeting with more than 500 parents in attendance in the gymnasium. Walter Sorensen, Head of School, welcomed the audience and shared his State of the School address which focused on many of the exciting curriculum highlights and unique learning opportunities that the students will experience this fall.
Special presenters included: Maria Cintron Magennis, Board President; Christian Frederiksen, Dads' Club President; Dawn Savoie, Parents' Club President; and Niki and David Campisi, Annual Fund Chairs. Parents also learned more about Alcuin’s sports teams and athletic programs, as well as an array of opportunities in environmental education, foreign language, visual and performing arts, choir, building projects and so much more.
After the kick-off, which included a rousing welcome for the Alcuin faculty and staff, parents visited individual classrooms to learn more details from their children’s teachers firsthand.
The event was followed by a lovely open-air campus reception including food trucks hosted by the Alcuin Dads’ Club, which featured information booths for parent volunteer opportunities and the upcoming spring auction among others.
