First Day Awesomeness
Opening Day is exciting for everyone. Veteran teachers, first time students, parents and siblings are always charged to come back to school. Even though those first days back can be a hard adjustment from the sleep-in-past-noon ritual of summer, everyone is excited to see friends, their new teachers, and wear some new shoes!
It’s no different for me as a Head of School – especially on my first day as one. That said, it was a wonderful start to the 2014-15 school year. Not only was the above true, but we had almost a half dozen alumni back on campus as well – a true testament to what kind of environment Allen Academy provides.
As we opened today, I shared with the student body some interesting facts:
* We opened with 295 students;
* Our youngest student will turn 3 next week;
* Our oldest student will turn 19 next month;
* Our student body boasts 23 different nationalities;
* One Preschool student’s great-grandfather is Allen Military Academy class of 1958.
Pretty awesome all the way around…
