May you have the intellect and the humility to navigate a complex and nuanced world. May you be comfortable living in the gray, and may you stay open to and curious about perspectives, beliefs and opinions that are different from yours. Be intellectuals but be pragmatists and mensches, as well. Embrace complexity, acknowledge that more than one way might be right, good, and true in any situation…and then make the call, take the stand and live in the world with passion and urgency.

2010-2011 was an extraordinary year for Gann thanks to the strength of, and the partnership between, Gann’s professional and lay leadership. We continued our focus on challenging and nurturing our students in all aspects of their Gann experience and developing outstanding teachers and educators who care deeply about their students. Our dedicated parents, Trustees, and the greater community made this all possible through their generous support. ELIZABETH JICK President

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT Gann Academy is at the forefront of Jewish Education in the area of professional development through the launch of the Faculty Rounds Program, a cutting edge approach to teaching. The goal of the Faculty Rounds Program is to build a more reflective and collaborative professional learning community in which teachers are continually working to improve their teaching practice. Through teachers’ participation in this program, they will gain new skills and capacities, thereby improving student learning. Gann anticipates that this approach to professional development will become a national model for other schools in the Jewish world and beyond.

CHANOCH LANA’AR: A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO JEWISH VALUES & CHARACTER EDUCATION Gann Academy has launched a pilot program called Chanoch Lana’Ar: a comprehensive, system-wide cultural change initiative that will enable each student to develop the habits of heart and mind necessary to develop their Jewish identity and become independent, responsible learners and citizens. Chanoch Lana’Ar focuses attention on helping students develop character and Jewish identity in ways that integrate in-depth understanding

of self and relationships with others, while becoming spiritually informed by Jewish values and tradition. Last year, Chanoch Lana’Ar trained 16 faculty and administrators in Jewish-based character development.

Gann’s ultimate goal is to engage half of the full-time faculty and at least one-quarter of the student body in intensive character development training.

SCIENCE ENRICHMENT Students involved in Gann Academy Inventing New Engineering Solutions (GAINES) utilized engineering, computer automated design, and other math and science skills to successfully complete innovative projects. The GAINES program is an important way for Gann to bring Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) curriculum to its students through a hands-on approach. Since its inception four years ago, Gann students have filed five patents. The two most recent patents were filed by Wyatt Mufson ’14 and Daniel Mangoubi ’14.

Wyatt’s invention is a shoe-cleaning doormat. The doormat cleans shoes via motors connected to sponges with antiseptic in them. As a person steps on the doormat, the sponges will spin to clean the shoe, and then when the person steps again, the shoe will be dried. He filed his patent this past September. Daniel’s invention is an electric heating jacket. It will have wires embedded in it like an electric blanket and sensors to turn it on and off depending on the wearer’s body temperature. He filed his patent at the end of last school year. Both students are excited to continue working on their projects and to build prototypes of their inventions. They will form groups with other GAINES students

This fall, Steve Dubin became the new Science Enrichment Coordinator. He oversees GAINES and the Robotics Team and will also work to develop additional ways for students to get involved in science. Seven Gann students joined the For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST) Robotics community. Students designed, built, and programmed a robot to compete in various challenges. After winning top honors at New York’s FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) Championship, the team qualified to compete at the FTC World Championship in St. Louis in April. There they were honored once again with the competition’s highest honors, winning the INSPIRE AWARD. The INSPIRE AWARD is the most prestigious honor awarded by FTC and is given to the team who finishes among the top in all of the judging categories.

NEW ATHLETIC FIELDS Gann used the summer time to update, improve and add to its outdoor athletic facilities. The upper field, located next to the tennis courts, has been completely renovated to include expansion, laser leveling, new sod and an irrigation system. This significant upgrade provides a much improved playing surface for all programs, but especially JV boys’/girls’ soccer and JV girls’ lacrosse, who hold nearly all of their home games on the field. The lower field, located in the back of the building, also received a major renovation with the installation of a new softball diamond, complete with a skinned infield, dugouts and outfield fencing. The

These two renovation projects have truly enhanced Gann’s already impressive athletic facilities and will provide Gann student-athletes with the opportunity to play on quality fields across all athletic programs. TEEN ISSUES TASK FORCE Gann Parents and Administrators came together this year to form a Teen Issues Task Force. The purpose of the task force is to align parents in the community to better help students make healthy choices during the time they spend out of school. The task force works to support effective communication and education about teen issues between the school, parents and students, parents and their children, and

amongst the parent community. Maximizing communication and alignment about expectations will support and nurture a healthy and positive culture and foster positive behaviors and choices among our students. EXPLORATION WEEK Once again Gann participated in its annual Exploration Week. The goal of Exploration Week is to allow students to broaden their horizons, form strong bonds amongst their peers and their teachers, and introduce students to the world outside of Gann Academy. The entire school, including students, teachers and administrators took a break from classes and the day to day operations at Gann to participate in a week of service, exploration, and new adventures. Exploration Week 2011 offered two tracks: local programs and travel trips. For the local

programs, students chose from working with inner-city youth in literacy programs, glass blowing, volunteering at organic farms and soup kitchens, learning about Interfaith Boston and experiencing the art of Boston. Those who decided to travel away from Boston spent time volunteering in New Orleans for Hurricane Katrina Relief, working with Habitat for Humanity in North Carolina and New York, traveling to Florida to experience Marine Biology, and flying across the country for Astronomy in New Mexico. The students and faculty came back from Exploration Week more experienced, transformed and motivated.

“For Yom HaZikaron we had an all-school ceremony, and afterwards everyone went outside and sang ‘Hatikva.’ The feeling of pride in Gann, the land of Israel, and the Jewish people touched my heart so deeply. As people reentered the school and dispersed throughout the hallways and classrooms, the entire building was overcome with an unbelievably powerful silence. Unforgettable!” ––– MAX FINEMAN, CLASS OF 2013
