The following address was delivered at the School's final assembly of the 2019-2020 academic year in early June, 2020. Last night I was thinking about what to put in this final speech, and I did not know where to start. I didn’t know whether or not to make it about the people I’ve met, the lessons I’ve learned, the experiences I’ve had, or the...

The Arts Fair - Celebrating the Arts on Zoom

We inherently understand how important arts are in everyone’s life either as the creator or the audience. Arts heal, console, inspire. They allow us to play. They are fuel for our hearts and minds.

A Feel-Good Story

May 17, '20

There is little inspiration these days; it’s kind of a bummer. Like you, I’m assuming, I spend most of my time sitting around, and am generally bored. I get that everyone is in a similar situation, and for that reason I intend to help lighten the mood. It’s hard to find things to write about, when there isn’t much going on around us, so in lieu...

Taking Thunder Road to Springsteen Night

Dec 03, '19

Some know him as ‘The Boss’, the hero in denim tank tops, others as a nostalgic father’s boy, or Mary’s young, working husband. But across the board, Bruce Springsteen will forever be known as the musical wonder who brought joy to our parents’ lives with his strong, lyrical voice and ageless songs. It was Mr. Collis’ appreciation for the...

Composition Rock Band

Nov 20, '19

When people think about arts, they normally think about something classical: painting, playing an instrument, maybe dance. They don’t think about Composition Rock Band. This art is different and that’s what makes it so special. This art targets young musicians trying to create their own music from scratch. This class gives us the tools and...
