Dear Gregory School Families:
 
Creativity is one of the 6 C’s faculty integrates into the school’s academic programming on a daily basis. This past week held numerous examples of current and alumni students demonstrating those creative skills. On Thursday afternoon, our very own 7th-grade drama students performed a play written by one of their peers, Eva Healy, entitled, It's More Fun in the Woods.     
 
Students in both the middle and upper schools formed robotics teams earlier in the year, and their creative approach to problem-solving with the devices has led all three teams to their respective state competitions. 
 
And just discovered this morning, a recent graduate notified his family of pending patents based on the creative work he began as a senior here and is continuing in college! More information will be shared in this regard when we’re able to do so, but in the meantime, we’re celebrating his entrepreneurial spirit and respecting the confidentiality of this exciting development!
 
The Gregory School difference is the very fact that students have the time, flexibility, and encouragement at TGS to “spread their wings” and pursue creative passions. We couldn’t be more proud of or more delighted to celebrate their many talents.
 
First Semester Exams and Assessments Week presents yet another opportunity for students to demonstrate learning. Thank you for supporting your child with rest, healthy diets, and quiet time as they prepare for exams. As always, please reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s learning experience at The Gregory School.

With appreciation,

Julie A. Sherrill, Ph.D.
Head of School
