Purnell's college and career counselor Lindsey Skerker recently shared some thoughts and resources with the Learning Disabilities Association of America's LDA Today newsletter on planning for school this fall: "Maslow Before Bloom: Prioritizing Regulation Before Education in the New School Year".
Do you remember the back-to-school commercial where the song, "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year", played while the family shopped for supplies? That feeling is true for many families, including my own. I always looked forward to our supply-shopping day, getting organized and shifting into a new home routine.
I had heard of "goat yoga" before, but I never had the opportunity to try it. It sounded like something people on social media are always posting, so I was excited to see what it was about!
Purnell School, the only college preparatory boarding and day school for motivated girls in grades 9-12 who learn differently, announced six appointments to its distinguished faculty and staff. The additions officially joined Purnell at the start of its in-person fall 2020 semester.
I want to officially welcome back our school community after so many months apart. My heart has been filled with joy these past few days seeing returning students reconnect, friendships develop with our new students, and our new and returning faculty forming their own collegial relationships.
