|Every week, I receive a meditation from the National Association of Episcopal Schools. This week’s message was centered on two op-ed pieces from the New York Times. In the first piece, “Best, Brightest, Saddest,“ Frank Bruni discusses the recent increase in suicides among high achieving high school students in Palo Alto.|
“Does a brand of hovering, exactingly prescriptive parenting put them in unforgiving boxes and prevent them from finding their true selves and true grit?”
|The mission of St. Paul's Episcopal Day School is to help each student reach his or her highest academic, moral, social and creative potential by providing a comprehensive program of education in a loving, faith-based community.|
Music has always been important to me. I recently filled a Spotify playlist with 134 songs that form the soundtrack of my life. The songs capture the good times, the teachable moments, and the milestones. Every morning, I blast music in the entryway to create a positive vibe. I believe in the transformative power of music.
Music instruction and musical performances are essential parts of the St. Paul’s experience. During the month of December, we offer several music-based Christmas programs. The programs bring us together, give us an excuse to eat at Winsteads, and provide content for our social media accounts. But, more importantly, the musical experiences enrich your child’s education and help us meet our goals.
