We've made it to the final week of the school year! I've been stuck these last few weeks trying to sum up this 125th year in Calhoun's history – a year that was at once celebratory, disorienting, challenging and joyful. It defies easy characterization.
Head Lines from Steve
Head Lines is a monthly newsletter from Head of School Steve Solnick to the Calhoun community.
Spring break is upon us. After a winter of heavy news, I hope the weeks ahead bring a lighter mood along with warmer weather.
It has been a while since I updated you on COVID measures. In part this has been because the surge of Omicron cases created some chaos and federal, state and city regulations have been in flux. With prevalence rates now returning to the low levels we experienced in the fall, it's a good time to take stock and look ahead.
As we head into the final week of 2021 in this anniversary school year, I wanted to take a few moments to look to the future. This year we reinvented our Lower School–Early Childhood STEAM Lab, to offer an expanded range of experiences for our students at 74th Street for years to come.
One of my favorite activities at Calhoun is to walk through our buildings when classes are in session. Our open floor plan at 81st St. makes this particularly rewarding, as it's easy to pass through classes with limited disruption and watch our extraordinary teachers at work.
