Dear Parents,

This week, I wanted to take a moment to share my gratitude with our community, and the ways in which you have welcomed me into Ancona.  It has been my distinct honor and privilege to lead this school over the past several months, and I am incredibly proud of the work we have been able to accomplish this year. Despite challenges, we are growing, we are thriving, and prospective families are falling in love with who we are.

Ancona is a school with a rich history, and strong mission that is helping reimagine what education can and should look like. This a community replete with the belief that education is a powerful tool for positive change, and we are doing great things as a collective, committed to these ideals. I could not be more proud of our accomplishments this year. This is a special school with an extraordinary team of people who work tirelessly to fundamentally support our students and their families. A school is greater than any one person, and we each play a role in making this a place that truly celebrates, cultivates and enriches our students.

Whatever the outcome of the Head of School search, I want you all to know that it has been my distinct pleasure to serve Ancona, and the larger community in which our beautiful school is situated. My greatest hope for Ancona is that we can all support, and work with, whoever our next Head of School is so that we can continue to grow a school whose future is as rich as its past.

Thank you for your care and for your warmth since my arrival here at Ancona. The future of our school is bright with possibility, and I am humbled to be a part of that story.
