The Hawk: August 16, 2019

August 16, 2019 2:59 pm


End of Summer Edition


Dear IACS Community,

The Hawk returns! For new members of the IACS community, “The Hawk” is our school’s weekly newsletter which gets emailed on Friday afternoons. In assembling these weekly editions, we aim to inform you about what is going on at school and also provide some additional context about why and how these events connect with our mission. We’ll always strive to reach the “Goldilocks Zone” where information is thoughtfully presented, but not try to create the Sunday newspaper.

With that in mind, please take a few minutes to read some of the information below. We hope to see you all at next week’s Ice Socials- High School on Wednesday the 21st and Middle School on Thursday the 22nd. These events are sponsored by our Community Association and they could use a few more volunteers to scoop! (See note below).

Have a great weekend,

Greg Orpen

Head of School
