Jason Gottlieb, assistant head of school at the ES, had been thinking about the elementary school yearbook, but put the idea aside because of so much time spent this year in remote learning. Being that this year was so different, how would we present the year in images if so much of it was children in front of a computer? But our wonderful community of children, teachers, and parents rose to the challenge to capture this unique year in the pages of a yearbook, and we are excited to hand out elementary school yearbooks to each child in the last weeks of school.
We wish to give a big thank you to the Waverly Parent Organization for connecting us during these many months at home! The community of students, teachers, and parents are what make Waverly the wonderful, warm, and unique school it is. Read on to learn about some of the virtual events the WPO has made happen this year, and be sure to check the Waverly Weekly News and PSL for more to come!
“It’s weird to have the most story-worthy thing that has happened to you in your life be told to you by other people,” writes Waverly senior Lola M. ’21 in her This I Believe essay. Through the telling of her remarkable beginning, Lola shares how essential it is to believe in yourself.
A Waverly parent of two shares why Waverly is the right school for his family. After originally planning to enroll in our school for a short period, they decided to stay for the long haul, due mainly to our engaging and thoughtful teachers who have also served as role models to his kids.
Ten Waverly students and teachers will participate in the 2020 NAIS People of Color Conference (PoCC) this week.
