End-of-year Message from the Head of School

Snaposhots from the School Year


Dear Parents, Guardians, Faculty, Staff, and Friends,

Last week, as another school year officially came to a close, I reflected back on all the wonderful learning opportunities and community events of the past ten months. I loved connecting with so many students and adults throughout the year: at basketball and soccer games, at Imagining Alice and the annual holiday concerts, in middle and upper school assemblies and dropping in to visit classrooms, at A Night in Havana, and Grandparents Day.

We started the year in August with a message at Convocation about the importance of gratitude, so as we head into summer, I want to take a moment to thank each and every one of you for all you do to make Rowland Hall special. I never cease to be amazed by the talent, dedication, and passion of the people in our community. As I look ahead to my final year as head of school, I am excited to help support head-elect Mick Gee and his family as they transition to Rowland Hall, and I'm confident they will experience from you the same enthusiastic and caring reception Nancy and I did when we moved to Salt Lake City 27 years ago.

I wish you all a fantastic summer.


Alan Sparrow
