ELMWOOD FRANKLIN SCHOOL ANNUAL REPORT

2006-2007


2


our mission E LMWOOD F RANKLIN

IS A SCHOOL THAT EMPHASIZES HIGH ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT, GOOD STUDY SKILLS AND POSITIVE CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT. We set high standards for each child with whom we work, then give support to enable him/her to meet these expectations. We expect our students throughout their years here to achieve success in becoming self-motivated and in assuming responsibility for their actions. The early years of education are crucial in an individual’s life. Our role is to provide each student with the basic skills to learn effectively and the fundamental elements of knowledge which will become the foundation of all subsequent learning. Learning how to learn, developing an enthusiasm for acquiring knowledge and cultivating a lively curiosity during these years sets a life-long pattern of sound attitudes. At Elmwood Franklin, we value an atmosphere of genuine respect and courtesy between student and student, adult and student and adult and adult. We not only set a positive tone to support our students but also, we encourage faculty, administration and staff throughout their time at Elmwood Franklin to develop themselves professionally with financial assistance from the school.

In delivering an educational program to further development of the whole child, Elmwood Franklin stresses the following • To be a school in which academic excellence exists in a supportive atmosphere so our students are well prepared for their high school in terms of academic and character growth. • To be a school in which children develop confidence in themselves, demonstrate respect for others, and assume responsibility for their own actions. In pursuit of its main goals through the following objectives, Elmwood Franklin will • Continue a traditional academic program with emphasis on learning how to learn, developing good study and work habits, and fostering creative and independent thinking. • Provide a varied curriculum with extra curricular offerings to enrich the education of all students. • Maintain a cohesive faculty of outstanding professional ability and high personal qualifications to serve as effective teachers and as caring adults. • Communicate frequently with parents to foster a realistic understanding of their children’s academic progress and overall development. • Continue to support the educational program by providing well-maintained, wellequipped facilities. • Enroll a student body that is reflective of our diverse community.

head of school TO N Y F E AT H E R S TO N

OUR STUDENTS, TEACHERS, ADMINISTRATION, AND I thank you very much for your support over the past year. It is only because of the continued generosity of many people – parents, alumnae/i, board members, alumni parents, grandparents and other friends of the school – that we can continue to offer the premier educational program for which Elmwood Franklin School is known. Every gift is important.

PARENT PARTICIPATION CONTINUES TO HOVER AROUND 75% AND ALUMNAE/I GIVING REACHED AN ALL TIME high of 21%, making EFS the envy of many fine independent schools across the country. Both statistics are a testament to the community spirit engendered at EFS and a tribute to our teachers – past and present – who continue to create a special learning environment. Every ten years independent schools are required to go through an exhaustive reaccreditation process, including a year-long self-examination; 07-08 is our year. Over the course of the next 12 months, Elmwood Franklin will take stock of every aspect of the school, scrutinizing the current state of things and looking forward to anticipate and plan new initiatives that maintain our present level of excellence and address any necessary improvements. As we begin the selfstudy, there is much good news to report. EFS has for several consecutive years enjoyed full enrollment and demand for admission remains robust. We have an outstanding faculty, passionately committed to our students and to their own professional growth. Our parents demonstrate every day the meaning of community and commitment through their actions in support of our students and teachers. EFS continues to be recognized by the most competitive local high schools for the quality of our students’ academic preparation. Our physical plant has received many upgrades over the past decade, including a new library and theater as well as a renovated and expanded Upper School wing. And our alumni body remains connected and deeply committed to the school. There is, of course, no question of our being reaccredited, but the process is very useful in identifying future needs and the means to meeting them. Some are obvious, while others are more difficult to anticipate. All will take the full engagement of the EFS family to ensure that the school continues to thrive and serve future generations of Buffalonians. We will need to continue improving the physical plant, including renovation and expansion of the outdated Lower School and Prep wing to better serve the needs of our students going forward and the development of a campus master plan that will certainly include the needs of our athletic program, among other things. Reviewing and updating our curriculum and co-curricular programs is ongoing to ensure our students’ continued success but will receive extra attention in this process. Assessing and addressing the needs of our technology program will be critical as we make certain that our students have the skills necessary in an ever-changing educational and employment landscape. We must maintain the highest possible level of experience and expertise in the faculty. EFS will also need to continue to think creatively about alternative revenue streams to help offset rising energy and healthcare costs and to ensure that the school remains as affordable, and thus accessible, to as wide a range of people as possible. As with everything we do at and on behalf of Elmwood Franklin School, our reaccreditation will take a team effort. Again, thank you for being a member of the team – a member of the family really – and for supporting the school. In addition to the lessons our students learn in their classes at Elmwood Franklin, through your financial and volunteer support of the school, you are teaching them valuable lessons about service, commitment, and community.

CORPORATION LUNCHEON As is the tradition every fall, life members of the Elmwood Franklin School Corporation joined together for lunch in the EFS library on November 2, 2006. This year the Corporation welcomed new member Michael Joseph who finished his term as Board president after the 2005-2006 school year.

admissions report Enrollment remains quite stable, with the school filled to capacity at 376 students. After graduating 36 eighth grade students in 2006, we enrolled 57 new students, keeping the school fully enrolled. Families continue to come to EFS from all over Western New York—some from as far away as Boston, Colden, Derby, Elma, Medina, Strykersville and Wheatfield, while others live as close as across the street from the school.

parent council

alumni council

The Parent Council serves as a support group to the school and as a resource for all members of the school community. It also plans educational and social events. All parents or guardians of students attending the school are members and are encouraged to participate. At each grade level there are parent representatives who support class activities.

The Alumni Council continued its work to develop, maintain, and strengthen the relationship between Elmwood Franklin School and its alumni.

Through the year the Parent Council sponsors fundraising and community initiatives such as the book fair, box tops sales, the ice cream social, the speakers series, and the fall family picnic.

recognition “ NO ACT OF KINDNESS, HOWEVER SMALL, IS EVER WASTED.” A

ESOP

Giving isn’t limited to money—acts of kindness, both small and large, have a value that goes beyond words. In May, Head of School Tony Featherston and Director of Development Julie Raynsford welcomed Elmwood Franklin’s many volunteers to a breakfast reception to give special recognition to a few and heartfelt thanks to all. The Unsung Hero Award, an award that honors those individuals who are “everywhere, doing everything,” was presented to Pam Catipovic, and Julia Ladds Clauss for their attention to detail on the Auction and to Margaret Rogers for her weekly help in the library. Parent Council Service Awards were presented to Kathleen Loree and Alex Johnston, as well as Parent Council President Cathy Alsheimer and the Parent Council Executive Committee: Lisa Hotung, Janine Lipke, Kathleen Loree and Joanne Brannen. Auction 2007 recognition was given to chairs Sharon Coverdale Dougherty, Marcy Liberti and Cindy Zachau. Auction Service Awards were presented to former auction chair Janet DiMichele, silent auction announcer Steve Kellogg, Jr. '77, gift certificate coordinator Lin Blakely, and live auction chairs Beckie Collins and Joan Jacobs. Annual Fund Chairs Jennifer Bronstein, Mike Hogan, and Liz Maloney

F R E D E R I C K E . M U N S C H AU E R I I Elmwood Franklin remembers Frederick E. Munschauer II, an alumni parent and grandparent and a benefactor of EFS, who passed away on December 17, 2006. Mr. Munschauer and his late wife, Harriet, sent their two children to Elmwood Franklin; their daughter, Dr. Carol Munschauer Pearson is a 1962 alumna, and their son, Dr. Frederick (Rick) Munschauer III, graduated in 1965. Two of Mr. Munschauer’s grandchildren, Lauren ’99 and Lindsay ’01, are also EFS alumni.

Mr. Munschauer and his family foundation have been generous supporters of Elmwood Franklin School for many years, giving to numerous capital and annual appeals, and the legacy of his family continues to shape our institution.

N I C O L E M A R I C O N DA ’ 95 The Nicole Mariconda ’95 Memorial Fund was established by her family to honor and remember this beloved young woman, who died unexpectedly on July 23, 2006. Donations to the fund have grown to $1,740.

In honor of her vivacious spirit, a seat in the Johnston Theatre has been dedicated in Nicole’s memory. Also, a memorial bench will be built as part of the forthcoming Lower School renovation.

The care and generosity expressed by the EFS community is a meaningful tribute to Nicole, who always thought of Elmwood Franklin as an extended family.
