A Biology Lab Sixty Feet Under
Tuesday, November 24, 2015
From a parent's perspective, the 2015 SCUBA interim trip to Southern California was an incredible opportunity for Rowland Hall students. The idea for the trip originated from within the SCUBA club, and students were directly involved in the trip concept, planning, and preparation. The trip allowed students of almost all SCUBA abilities to bond and work together on a unique and exciting trip, and supported personal development in regards to independence, responsibility and maturity. My son had a fantastic experience and is looking forward to being involved in planning the next interim adventure.

Early Childhood Math Proficiency Yields Surprising Results
Tuesday, November 24, 2015
According to Professor Doug Clements, a nationally recognized early childhood mathematics researcher, early development of mathematical skills has proven to be an even greater predictor of future school success than reading and literacy proficiency. Additionally, early knowledge of math not only predicts later success in math but higher achievement in reading.

Peter Hayes: More Than a Rowland Hall Legacy
Tuesday, November 24, 2015
Rain poured from the sky above the Lincoln Street Campus on September 16, 2015, the day Rowland Hall students heard that Mr. Hayes had died of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis, the disease that ended his teaching career in February 2013. Having gotten the news from Emotional Support Counselor Diane Guido, friends in the halls, or the flood of Facebook messages on Peter Hayes's wall, our seniors expressed silent mourning in his memory. From biology teacher to renowned Rowland Hall figure, Peter Hayes left a legacy in our community and among his students dispersed throughout the world.

Sustainability Education in Action with Jensen Morgan
Tuesday, November 24, 2015
Sustainability is a part of our culture at Rowland Hall. The values it teaches our students generate a lifetime of responsible stewardship of our planet. Leading the charge of sustainability and already saving the school money through energy audits and adaptations is Jensen Morgan, a member of the operations team who is approaching sustainability as the point at which environment, justice, and economics meet. Jensen is currently looking for additional savings through a Blue Sky Grant that will supply more solar panels for the McCarthey Campus. He also works closely with the director of ethical education and with teachers as our point person for sustainability.

The Tradition of Convocation and Historical Ties Considered
Tuesday, November 24, 2015
When our entire student body came together on the Steiner Campus fields for the opening day ceremony of Convocation, I was once again reminded of the school's responsibility to remain committed to our founders' deep roots in ethical education. There are many things that make Rowland Hall special, but our mission to graduate good citizens has been central to our purpose since the Episcopal Church founded our school nearly 150 years ago.

Walking the Walk, Strategic Plan Style
Tuesday, November 24, 2015
What if I told you that we could make a significant impact in how students view their school experience -- that we have ways to diminish students' anxiety about grades while creating a culture of learning where struggle, hard work, and even failure are all options? Now, I am under no illusion that this is a one-year project; it will take time to help students transition from a results-oriented approach to an approach focused on the process of learning, but I believe that we can create such a culture through consistency of language and intentionality about our approach as a school.
