2 ANNUNCIATION ORTHODOX SCHOOL


From the Head of School During my visits to campus last spring, I was met with a consistent narrative of how special the AOS community is. Since assuming leadership as Head of School, this narrative continues to strengthen as I witness the love, hard work, and dedication every member of this community demonstrates daily in an effort to grow our students’ hearts and minds. Thank you to everyone who donated to AOS in the 2017-2018 school year. Whether it be participating in the Annual Fund, underwriting the Book Fair, or contributing to the Carry the Torch Capital Campaign, we would not be able to provide the world-class education we offer at AOS without this monetary support. The money we raise provides essential income to support school operations not covered by tuition and has also gifted us a state-of-the-art building that encourages creativity and collaboration in the classroom. Not only are these resources and facilities important to the facilitation of our curriculum, but they also help ensure that AOS will continue to attract and retain top talent, in both students and faculty. AOS is unique, and your contributed dollars help us maintain and foster our school culture of learning in a nurturing, supportive environment. By donating, you are supporting the mission of AOS. Thank you, again, for sharing your gift and for being a donor.

ANNUAL REPORT I 2017-2018 3


Dear AOS Families and Friends: The 2017-2018 school year was a year of great accomplishment and transition for our school.

From the Board Chair

In November 2017, after a nine-month search process, and with input and participation from the entire AOS community, the Board of Trustees selected Sam Fragomeni, Ed.D., to be the next Head of School at AOS. Sam brings a proven and distinguished track record of educational leadership to AOS, most recently as the Chief Academic Officer at Explore Schools. Although Sam officially started as Head of School on July 1, 2018, he was hard at work on transitioning into his new role for many months prior, during which time he attended many AOS events, met with all faculty, and spent considerable time with his predecessor, Mark Kelly. As a board, we look forward to Sam’s leadership and to working with him to ensure that the school continues to thrive. As a community, we bid a fond farewell to our long-serving and beloved Head of School Mark Kelly at a retirement celebration in his honor on April 21, 2018. At this wonderful event, we raised over $80,000 to establish the Mark Kelly Endowment for Excellence. In addition, the board announced that the middle school will be named the Mark Kelly Middle School in honor of Mark’s 22 years of devoted service to the school. We also announced the naming of the Katherine Veletsos Lower School in honor of our founding Head of School Katherine Veletsos who laid the groundwork for the success of AOS during her 25 years of leadership. In February 2018, we celebrated the completion of our $19.4 million construction project with a ribbon cutting and blessing attended by many of our leadership donors, project team, and other friends and supporters. Our new facilities - a three-story, stateof-the-art lower school and early childhood building, beautiful dining hall, pavilion, and expanded green space - have truly transformed the AOS campus.

4 ANNUNCIATION ORTHODOX SCHOOL

The Carry the Torch Capital Campaign, under the leadership of Kris and Richard McGee, came to a successful completion having raised over $15 million. We were blessed with the generous support of so many AOS families, both current and alumni, as well as extraordinary support from area foundations, including a remarkable lead gift of $2 million from the Glassell Family Foundation. The school’s financial position remains strong. Financial statements for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2018, reflect that the school, once again, ended the fiscal year with a surplus. This surplus is primarily made possible by your generous support of the AOS Annnual Fund. Contributions to the AOS Annual Fund totaled approximately $720,000 for the 2017-2018 school year. Finally, our Strategic Planning Committee, chaired by Trustee Sean Maher, made progress in the implementation of the new plan, including imperatives such as refreshing the website, hiring a communications director, and evaluating campus security. Implementation of the strategic plan is expected to continue over the next three to five years, so stay tuned for more updates. In closing, I would like to thank the following Trustees for their years of service to AOS: Demo Psifidis, Morgan Shin, and Jim Tanner. Our school is a better place because of their leadership. I am also very pleased to report that Kris McGee has agreed to serve as Board Chair in 2018-2019. Kris is passionate about the school and its mission, and we are very fortunate to have her lead the board at this time. It has been my great privilege to serve this wonderful school community as Board Chair for the last three years. Thank you for allowing me to do so and for your continued support of AOS.

Carry the Torch Capital Campaign The Carry the Torch Capital Campaign was very successful and raised over $15 million! We would like to acknowledge all current and former parents, the numerous foundations, and all of our other friends who have demonstrated their confidence in our beloved school and its mission. A ribboncutting ceremony took place in February 2018 to recognize and honor all those who so generously supported the campaign. The Carry the Torch Capital Campaign was led by chairs Kris and Richard McGee, who are dedicated alumni parents as well as highly effective volunteer leaders. Their work was supported by a strong campaign committee and significant involvement from the Board of Trustees. Thank you all for your amazing support!

AOS Annual Fund The 2017-2018 AOS Annual Fund Chairs Jen Arntzen and Joy Posoli would like to thank the AOS community for their support of the 2017-2018 AOS Annual Fund. The fund raised $720,000 to help cover the gap between tuition income and the operating budget for the school. This fund is an investment in our students because the money raised directly benefits their academic and extracurricular experiences today. Thank you to our parents, board, faculty and staff, grandparents, former parents, alumni, matching gift corporations, foundations, and friends for helping us surpass our fundraising goal. Congratulations to our Board of Trustees and our faculty and staff, who again this year supported the fund at 100%! We appreciate the members of the AOS Annual Fund Committee who act as ambassadors for this annual campaign. Because of their belief in the importance of this fund and the mission of the school, over 70% of all current parents made a heartfelt gift. Thank you for making your annual gift to the AOS Annual Fund a priority!

From the Parent Teacher Club President

The Parent Teacher Club (PTC), along with all members of the AOS community, experienced tremendous change and growth during the 2017-2018 school year. The new building not only opened new spaces for PTC events and activities and ignited the creativity of the 38 members of the PTC Board who chaired 24 committees, but it also inspired the PTC Executive Committee to rethink our volunteer and fundraising programs, including going to an every-other-year gala. After the year off, we are looking forward to embarking at the 2018-2019 AOS Gala in February. The PTC began the school year coordinating volunteer efforts for Hurricane Harvey victims. The response from the community was overwhelming and uplifting, truly a testament to the kind, caring families at AOS. The year ended with the Big Fat Greek Olympics, a day where almost everyone in the community is on campus, volunteering, and celebrating the spirit of AOS. In between, the PTC coordinated and funded four fantastic community events including the Back to School Breakfast, the Book Fair and Spaghetti Dinner where we all “Camped Out with a Good Book,” Grandparents and Special Friends Day, and the Eikon Art Show and hosted four speakers through Parent Education. In addition, PTC chairs and volunteers supported school priorities and activities through a variety of committees including Care Committee, Faculty and Staff Appreciation, Helping Hands, Spirit Sales, Visual Arts Exhibition, Christmas Program and Robes, Classical and Musical Countdown, Lower, Middle School, and Chorus Art Angels, Lower and Middle School Room/Team Parent Coordinators, Service Committee and, last but not least, Team Sports. The Chairs of these committees are an amazing group of supportive, hard-working, creative, fun and dynamic individuals, and we are grateful to every single one of them for giving their time and talents to the PTC this year. In addition to PTC Board members and volunteers, we would like to thank members of the AOS faculty

26 ANNUNCIATION ORTHODOX SCHOOL

and staff who have been integral to the success of the PTC this year. First, we’d like to thank the Facilities Team, some of the the most hard-working, patient, kind, and caring people at AOS. We would also like to thank the more than forty members of the faculty and staff who supported the PTC’s fundraising efforts by serving as volunteers at the Jones Center/Lower School Night Out or providing special experiences for our auction. There was no requirement to participate in these events, and it is a testament to the dedication of the faculty and staff and the love they have for our kids that so many of them gave their free time to help us raise money for the PTC. We’d also like to thank the Business Office who manages our finances so expertly and the Advancement Office who spent hundreds of hours alongside us this year planning and working on PTC activities and events. Although PTC fundraising is overall significantly lower this year due to skipping the gala, we broke records for both Olympics and Book Fair fundraising and had a very successful, first-ever Special Experience Holiday Auction. We are very grateful to all our contributors. Despite not having gala revenues this year and due to prior PTC boards’ fiscal restraint, we were still able to maintain a significant level of direct support to AOS, transferring more than $150,000 to the Carry the Torch Capital Campaign, the general endowment, educational support, and professional development. My family has been a part of the AOS community for eight years, and during those years, I have realized how uniquely wonderful our community is. The faculty, staff, parents, and children who make up our community create a magical place of kindness, caring, and connection. I am thankful every single day that we chose to send our daughters to AOS, and I am very grateful for having had the opportunity to serve this year as the PTC President.

ANNUAL REPORT I 2017-2018 31


From the Dads Club President

We had another fantastic year for the AOS Dads Club! I am happy to report that for the fourteenth year in a row we have continued to provide additional funding and support to the school’s programs and funds in the amount of $17,996, ending the year with a Dads Club account balance of over $85,000. This year we funded two high-tech interactive flat screen carts for the Lower School to help improve teaching and bring technology into previously inaccessible spaces. In addition, we also provided our annual contributions to the General Fund and the Jimmy Pappas Fund, with the remaining funds being saved for future school requests. We rolled through our normal “Big Three” events this year, which were very successful and not only generated revenue, but brought our dads together to share experiences and spend some great time together. Here’s the rundown of each event: The Golf Tournament was led by our fearless chair Matt Airhart and his fantastic committee. We had 97 players and 30 sponsors this year! The tournament danced with the weather as there were multiple storms in the area, but we succeeded in threading the needle, and in the end, the event turned out to have fantastic weather. There were a few small rain cells that did hit, but our players were not diminished as they powered through the course. In the end, the competition was fierce, and teams of both moms and dads had a great time. Our ninth annual BBQ Cookoff returned to its normal venue across the street after a one-year sabbatical, and the bouncy houses took their normal places in the church parking lot. Co-Chairs Kris McGinty and Fred Wood were instrumental in coordinating our largest volunteer effort of the year and leading it to success. Each year we see the quality of the food and competition continue to rise, and this year was no exception. The teams fought overnight through severe thunderstorms and provided fantastic BBQ for all to enjoy in the morning. The fourth annual Sporting Clay Shoot again positioned itself as a strong contender in our lineup and battled for supremacy with our next year’s Dads Club

32 ANNUNCIATION ORTHODOX SCHOOL

President Bill Prout and his Co-Chair Robert Charles at the helm. The field was strong this year, and the course was bursting with AOS participants at every station. This year the course recognized our skills and challenged us with some stations that were nearly impossible to hit, but that didn’t stop the top score from reaching an amazing 102 out of a possible 106. Finally, the raffle was hugely successful, and several AOS parents went home with some beautiful shotguns among many other items. Our speaker series had another great run as we heard from Daryl Williams, one of IBM’s greatest salesmen, on their premier Artificial Intelligence platform WATSON. We also heard from Crystal Collier with another great presentation on the human brain and the effects of vaping. We added another fundraiser to the mix this year with our first Movie Night Out. The force was strong with us with 104 tickets sold as we watched our own private showing of Star Wars – The Last Jedi. Brad Fleming rounded out our events with several well-attended happy hours throughout the year. In addition, he designed a new Dads Club hat which we have added to our arsenal of promotional items. Pick one up soon at the school store and show your support for AOS! I would like to thank the Advancement Office for their guidance and support. I would also like to thank Mike Locklar for his dedication and support over the years and wish his family well as they move on to high school. A quick thank you to Omar Aboudaher for his fiscal guidance as our Treasurer and to our Lower and Middle School Reps Robert Charles, Jein Gadson and Mario Madrid. I’d like to take a second to recognize the 2017-2018 Board for their help. If you pass any of these gentlemen in the hallway, please pat them on the back and thank them for their service and selfless dedication:


President Jason Ahlgren Vice President Bill Prout Secretary Mike Locklar Treasurer Omar Aboudaher Past President Jeff Phillips Lower School Rep Robert Charles and Jein Gadson Middle School Rep Mario Madrid At-Large Rep Brad Fleming Golf Tournament Chair Matt Airhart BBQ Cookoff Chairs Kris McGinty and co-chair Fred Wood Sporting Clay Chairs Bill Prout and co-chair Robert Charles As I bring this to a close I would like to note that we continue to be proud of our Dads Club. I have found over the years that it is the community and the involvement of the parents that makes AOS such a great school. While the Dads Club continues to provide strong financial support to our children and the school, it is important to highlight that we foster the relationships that bond us together as brothers in arms at AOS. The Dads Club provides the opportunities for us to get together, make new friends, share some stories, and help each other get through another school year. Thank you for your support, and I look forward to seeing everyone at the next Dads Club event!

Mark Kelly Retirement Celebration On Saturday, April 21, AOS welcomed over 350 guests for a special evening celebrating Mark Kelly’s 22 years of service as our Head of School. The night kicked off with a cocktail reception and entertainment in the Moss Family and Edwards H. Andrews Foundation Dining Hall. Guests then moved into a seated dinner under a beautiful tent where dinner was catered by Charlie’s & Co., and two commemorative video tributes to Mark Kelly were shown. Dinner entertainment featured performances by the Harbor Lights Choir, and guest speakers included Lauren Kelly, Sarah Kelly, and Mark Kelly’s longtime friend, Jim Axelrod. Board President John Anaipakos made the special announcement that the AOS Lower School would be named the Katherine Veletsos Lower School and the AOS Middle School would be named the Mark Kelly Middle School. The evening’s event raised over $80,000 towards the Mark Kelly Endowment for Excellence, a fund established for faculty and staff professional development and college tuition reimbursement. Thank you to the event chairs Marina Christensen, Laurie Pearson, Joy Posoli, and Tiffany Utterson for making this evening so remarkable for everyone involved and to the many donors who supported the event and contributed to this important cause!
