State of the School Report “If you can imagine it, and are willing to work together, anything is possible.” - Ronni McCaffrey


To the Graland Community:

A

lbert Einstein once wrote, “All meaningful and lasting change starts first in the imagination and then works its way out.” At Graland, the 2011-12 school year was the launch of extensive “meaningful and lasting change” generated through the collective imagination and the collaborative efforts of a vibrant school community. To maintain accreditation by the Association of Colorado Independent Schools (ACIS), Graland complies with a comprehensive and rigorous set of standards and follows specified policies and procedures. As part of this process, Graland participates in a continuous cycle of program development and evaluation. The first stage of the evaluation cycle is a reflection on the School’s mission, which the Graland school community completed during the 2010-11 school year. This work served as the starting point of a strategic planning process designed to move the school closer to realizing its mission. Led by Laura Wright, trustee and parent of Rachel ’09 and Claire ’13, the Board of Trustees’ Strategic Planning Committee devoted 18 months to collecting and analyzing data, to surveying all constituent groups, to implementing Board of Trustee retreats and to organizing parent and faculty/staff focus group discussions. The aim of this work was to identify the key strategic pathways to achieving the School’s mission as well as criteria to gauge progress. The culmination of these efforts, the 2011-17 Strategic Plan, was ratified by the Board of Trustees in November 2011 and presented five key strategic initiatives for the school:

1.

Provide a program that brings the Graland Mission Statement to life.

2.

Create a dynamic learning community composed of highly effective teachers, administrators and staff.

3.

Foster an inclusive community focused on supporting Graland’s Mission Statement and Guiding Principles.

4.

Ensure financial sustainability and maintain a campus and facilities that optimize Graland’s program.

5.

Implement Board governance practices that serve Graland’s Mission.

Using the Strategic Plan as a framework, the School administration, faculty and staff develop a “work plan” each summer for the following school year. The first order of business for the 2011-12 work plan was to complete a selfevaluation of all aspects of the Graland program in light of its mission and guiding principles to prepare for the ACIS Evaluation Visit, scheduled for November 2012. The self-recommendations for improvement that emerged from this process will be incorporated into future yearly work plans. Other projects such as implementing the employee childcare program and planning for the pre-kindergarten program; founding the Graland Inclusivity Forum and Taskforce (GIFT); perfecting the services of the new Anschutz Commons, the Hamilton Reiman Building and the Fries Family Theater; digitally documenting the school’s curriculum; assessing and enhancing specific instructional programs; incorporating iPadsTM into the Middle School and completing a security audit were among the many projects accomplished during the 2011-12 school year. This State of the School report provides more detailed coverage of some of these exciting initiatives. The 2012-13 school year is off to a strong start building on tasks begun last year and initiating a number of new ventures. If programmatic evolution originates in professional development, this year promises to be one of significant growth for Graland. During the past summer, more than half the faculty participated in a wide range of professional course work and workshops directly related to curricular change efforts. Teachers and staff returned to Graland in August ready to engage their colleagues and students in transforming fresh ideas into action. The Graland version of Dr. Einstein’s theory of change goes something like this, “If you can imagine it, and are willing to work together, anything is possible.” We are proud to share this annual report of progress with you, as it is your ongoing enthusiasm and generous support that make such innovation and growth possible.

Sincerely,

Veronica A. McCaffrey Head of School

Stability

2011-12 State of the School Report

inancial sustainability and affordability continue to be the focus of Graland as we look at ways to operate efficiently while maintaining the quality of education and services. Our trustees and finance committee volunteers are committed to sustaining Graland for the next generation as their predecessors have done for us. Tuition levels are at or below the median tuition for all U.S. independent schools. Graland emphasizes affordability balanced by strong academics, but tuition alone does not cover the entire cost of a Graland education. Thanks to the strong support of the Graland community, the Annual Fund supports five percent of the annual operating budget, while the Graland Foundation Endowment supports seven percent. Graland is committed to inclusivity, meaning that the School has the people, programs, policies and practices in place to ensure a strong, diverse community. To support our commitment, Graland offers $1.6 million in financial aid to families that would not otherwise be able to afford a Graland education. As a result, Graland students are in an environment where they can learn to value individual differences and divergent thinking in a multi-faceted and diverse world. Providing stellar facilities to support our programs, Graland makes annual investments in maintaining our facilities at a high quality. We have a multiyear plan to replace worn carpeting, re-paint, upgrade old roofs and maintain our heating and air conditioning systems so they operate at optimal levels. By investing in our facilities on an annual basis, we are able to maintain the longevity of our buildings. In fact, some campus buildings are more than 50 years old and look similar to many of the newer buildings. Investing today with an eye to the future will help ensure that Graland is here to serve many future generations.

Board of Trustees Year-end Update Trustees were very active on a number of fronts in 2011-12. Here are some of the year’s highlights: • Approved a pilot Graland preschool program • Completed construction of the Anschutz Commons and renovations to the Hamilton Reiman Building; conducted a campus security audit and approved plans for the preschool playground • Achieved the Annual Fund fundraising goal of $750,000 and raised an additional $566,000 in special gifts; supported other development efforts • Developed the operating budget for the 2012-13 academic year • Approved and began implementation of the 2011-17 Strategic Plan • Completed year two requirements of the seven-year process for reaccreditation by the Association of Colorado Independent Schools, including comprehensive examination of Graland’s governance processes • Revamped the school’s annual progress report towards achievement of the mission and strategic plan objectives; reviewed all major Board and school policies and amended them where appropriate • Provided general support and counsel to the Head of School • Elected the following members of the Graland community to serve on the Board of Trustees: Sureel Choksi, John Gowen, John Kechriotis and Seth Terry ‘83 The Board is now ably led by these officers for 2012-13: Christopher Hunt, President; Greg Goldberg ‘83, First Vice President; Laura Wright, Second Vice President; Mark Belfance, Treasurer; and Sarah Harvey, Secretary. I have been honored to serve as a trustee and Board President for the past nine years. The Board also said farewell to Julie Bock, Sunhee Juhon Hodges, Stephanie Flanigan and Don Parsons. Collectively we five trustees have given 36 person-years of service to Graland’s Board, making significant contributions in our various capacities as trustees and parents. Please join me in extending to Julie, Sunhee, Stephanie and Don our sincere gratitude for their service.

Graland Pursues

Excellence

First and foremost, Graland exists to educate young people to achieve intellectual excellence, to build strong character and to become engaged citizens and thoughtful leaders. Our mission was revitalized in 2011 and manifested in numerous ways.

The iPad program is expanded in 2012-13 to include Grades 5-7. Eighth graders are using laptop computers.

Another way Graland remains a technology leader is by employing an educational technologist to support teachers' efforts. Former second grade instructor Jessica Ross leads this effort in 2012-13.

Technology In the area of technology, Graland continues to be a leader in the field. Tech devices and advances are an ever-increasing part of our daily life, particularly for the younger generation, and our curriculum embraces the trend.

iPadsTM

Fifth graders applied technology to all aspects of their learning in the successful iPad pilot program. Apple iPads and associated applications offer unlimited potential as a learning tool, as students and teachers discovered over the course of the year. Each foreign language and MESH teacher (math, English, science, history) incorporated technology into lessons, such as a frog dissection app used to study physiology in science. Across the board, students reported feeling more engaged in the learning process. In conjunction, faculty members engaged with Apple Distinguished Educator and Consultant Julia Leong to investigate and explore ways to employ new technology in the classroom. Julia inspired innovation and creative use of educational tech tools as she met regularly with teachers.

SMARTBoardsTM

Across the Lower School, teachers eagerly trained and implemented new learning techniques with SMARTBoards, a high-tech alternative to white boards. The technology allows teachers to create lessons that draw students into learning as they sort and sequence, watch educational videos, interact with websites and participate in learning games and lesson reviews. By saving the work electronically, teachers can review the lesson with students who are absent or need more repetition.

Curriculum Literacy

Following recommendations from the Literacy Task Force, Graland implemented a new comprehensive literacy curriculum for Grades K-4. Using Journeys lessons, teachers engaged in well-rounded and thorough language arts instruction that included phonics, comprehension, phonemic awareness, vocabulary, fluency, grammar and writing in various genres. Journeys added a new level of organization, challenge and rigor to literacy instruction at Graland.

History

2011-12 State of the School Report

Historical knowledge allows students to become engaged members of our democracy, and with the implementation of the History Alive! coursework, they receive a unified curriculum from fourth through eighth grade. The inspiring program builds both history and literacy skills with lessons on America’s past, the ancient world, medieval times and US government. Numerous online resources for teachers and a web version of the text create more interactive opportunities for engaging students.

Responsive ClassroomTM

Graland’s commitment to encouraging respectful, well-mannered students is expressed in the Responsive Classroom approach to classroom management used in the Lower School. The program develops positive interpersonal skills among students, who learn to greet peers and adults, handle social conflict and be thoughtful, loyal friends. Since implementing the program in 2009, Graland teachers report a decline in discipline issues and a more focused classroom. Grade 3 teacher Susie Cook is a certified Responsive Classroom trainer who works with her peers at Graland and other schools.

Preschool 66

With the support of the Board of Trustees, Graland approved a pilot preschool program for the 2012-13 year. Renovation to the Humphreys Building and the construction of a new, dedicated playground began. Graland's Early Childhood Learning Center is expected to expand as need for quality pre-kindergarten programming attracts more students.


Gates Program

In its 12th year, the Gates Invention and Innovation program was more successful than ever as three United States patents were awarded to current and former student inventors at an assembly in May 2012. •  Madi Rifkin ‘12, devised a retractable bike lock that earned her a patent nod in sixth grade. In her eighth grade year, she received her patent documentation. •  Together, Brooks Benson ‘10 and Jackson Bock ‘10, now high school juniors, designed a “helmet locking mechanism” that allows bicyclists to lock their helmets to their bikes. • Emily  Kelly ‘09, now a graduate of Colorado Academy, earned a utility patent for her invention, the “Taper Clip.” The tool efficiently dispenses packing tape. • S  everal patent nods were offered by judges in the 2012 contest, meaning someday, with assistance from Graland, those inventors may also earn recognition as patent owners.

Guiding Principles in Action The adoption of 12 Graland Guiding Principles gave structure to the character development component of the School’s revamped mission. An emphasis on selected Principles was maintained from fall to spring in the Middle School and expressed in a variety of ways.

Diversity Coordinator

With the addition of James Foreman, diversity coordinator, Graland renewed its commitment to creating a culture that “honors individuality.” James’ goal is to ensure each student feels respected and celebrated for his or her unique talents and traits. By empowering students and building their confidence, he works to be a resource for enhancing diversity on campus. James also began organizing an Alumni Diversity Network to offer opportunities for alumni to share their stories and inspire students. He works with parents through the Graland Inclusivity Forum and Taskforce (GIFT) to create activities and events that bring people together.

UpWords Assemblies

Beginning in 2011, Middle School students had the privilege of learning from their teachers in a more personal way as faculty volunteered to share their stories at gatherings called “UpWords Assemblies.” The series was designed to center on the Guiding Principles and inspire students from real-life experiences. Special thanks to these faculty who participated in 2011-12. • James Foreman – Honor Individuality • John Caldwell – Embrace Experiences • Betsy Metcalfe – Inspire Leadership • Josh Forke and Josh Gaffga – Instill Integrity

Compassion Cultivated

Special emphasis was placed this year on cultivating compassion (a Graland Guiding Principle), particularly in the Middle School. Faculty were trained at the beginning of the year by the Colorado School Safety Resource Center. Building on the Lower School’s Responsive Classroom curriculum, the Middle School Advisory Program stresses compassion as well as other positive character traits. In addition to Advisory programming, assemblies were also used to emphasize this principle. In September, Trevor Marsicano, an Olympic medalist who had been bullied as a teenager, spoke to the students about resiliency and compassion. Then, in May, Winter Vineki, a young triathlete whose father died of prostate cancer, presented on the organization she founded to raise money for cancer research.

Gates inventors received their patent awards at an all-school assembly.

Affinity groups based on common interests are forming in 2012 as another way Graland builds community and relationships among faculty, staff and families.

very year, thanks to the Annual Fund, Graland’s faculty and staff enjoy opportunities to develop their professional skills at workshops and conferences designed for educators and administrators. Graland commits more than $150,000 annually as one way we fulfill our mission to achieve intellectual excellence, build strong character and enrich learning in all content areas. Keeping our faculty updated on best practices benefits our entire community. According to Gail Hill, director of curriculum and instruction, faculty and staff are encouraged to pursue higher education degrees, attend cutting-edge technology workshops and learn updated teaching strategies. It’s all an effort to make certain Graland’s faculty is a group of people with vast experiences, extensive content knowledge and renewed enthusiasm for their craft. “The ultimate benefit is the reward Graland students receive when being taught, mentored and coached by a motivated, knowledgeable faculty,” Gail explains. Over the summer, third grade teacher Dana Pease attended a twoday workshop focused on the concept of a flipped classroom. The idea is that faculty members tape their lessons for students to watch as part of their homework allowing more time in the classroom for problem solving, discussion and interactive feedback. Graland was first introduced to this concept when international technology-education guru Alan November visited our campus two years ago. “We learned about many different models of flipping classrooms, from individual parts of the curriculum to simple lessons,” Dana says. “We learned alongside teachers from as far away as Brazil, Hong Kong and Abu Dhabi. It was a great experience right in the middle of summer, when we were excited to explore new concepts.”

Professional Development

Recap

All Faculty and Staff Author Wendy Mogel addressed faculty and staff prior to her presentation to the parent community in January 2012. She shared wisdom from her years as an accomplished author, clinical psychologist and parenting expert.

Reaccreditation: Year Two

W

ith veteran Graland teacher and administrator Di Nestel, director of programs, at the wheel, the School’s reaccreditation process is progressing right on schedule. After completing the self-study component last summer, Graland concluded its second year of the seven-year cycle to maintain certification with the Association of Colorado Independent Schools (ACIS). The self-study process, while timeconsuming, was worth the significant, school-wide effort, according to Di. “In the end, the School’s request for recertification will get approved, which is important,” Di says. “But even more important is the time spent reflecting on what we do, why we do it and how we could do it better.” Forty-eight committees worked throughout the 2011-12 school year to prepare a total of 50 reports that make up the final document. Every faculty and staff member served on at least one committee; others helped with two, three, four or even five committees. “It was great to talk in depth with other faculty members, then step back to see the big picture and how my part fits in with all the rest,” says Mitch Masters, history teacher. “We were given time to have professional, meaningful conversations about our practices and everyone viewed it as an important step in defining who we are as a school, especially in the context of our new mission statement.” In fact, part of the yearlong objective was for colleagues to work together, have lively debate and apply critical analysis to our programs. “It’s healthy to identify areas of growth and put our goals in black and white for all to see,” Di continues. “The report itself is very honest and represents our School authentically.” The three-part document (overview, strengths/challenges and future plans) has already received glowing reviews from ACIS. “They were impressed with the quality of the program content; in fact, the executive director at ACIS says the faculty reports were among the best he’s ever seen,” Di notes.

Year three in the reaccreditation process involves the ACIS visiting team, a group of peer school leaders who will talk to every employee and validate information in the report. They were on campus November 11-14, 2012.

Curriculum mapping an ongoing process

G

raland began the exciting task of curriculum mapping last year. Mapping is the act of documenting the scope and sequence of learning that happens vertically (from Grades K-8) and horizontally (across each grade level). Kristin Ryder led the effort, and her committee encouraged every faculty member to evaluate the content knowledge, skills and instruction methods for his or her curricular area. Every teacher engaged in conversations about scope and sequence of learning and documented his or her curriculum into a computer program. Now, with the curriculum information online, teachers and administrators can view and sort data by grade, subject or a variety of other criteria. Educators can see “holes” in scope or sequence as well as overlapping curricula, revealing opportunities to fill in educational gaps and engage in cross-divisional and cross-subject collaboration. Curriculum mapping helps the School create programs that are unified, aligned and intentional. “The curriculum map holds us accountable to plan and teach in the most effective and meaningful way for our young learners,” says Dana Pease, Grade 3 teacher. Within the first year of the mapping exercise, Graland saw a “huge” benefit, says Kristin, and not only in the classroom. “Mapping greatly complemented the reaccreditation self-study project,” she explains. “Because every teacher was involved in mapping, we were able to critique our programs more effectively for our reports -- it is a valuable ‘jumping off’ point.”

The mapping task will continue indefinitely as Graland constantly improves its excellent and rigorous educational program. Gail Hill, newly appointed director of curriculum and instruction, will carry on the important project as Kristin Ryder focuses on her new role as director of admission.

raland believes intellectual development is incomplete without character development. Our service-learning program provides students with opportunities to meet real community needs while learning leadership skills, empathy and social responsibility. Each grade level participated in a yearlong project to better the lives of others and to teach valuable life lessons to students. • All-school Penny Harvest: Coin drive that raises money for student-selected organizations • Kindergarten: Bottle cap drive (a “green” effort to recycle plastic) • First: Read to Feed (food drive) and Volunteers of America (bilingual coloring books) • Second: The Children’s Hospital (audio books and blankets for patients) • Third: Plains Conservation Center and History Colorado Center (plant biodiversity and heirloom seeds) • Fourth: Unified Neighborhood Special Olympics (promoting acceptance and inclusivity) • Fifth: Denver Zoo (animal conservation) • Sixth: Capitol Hill Community Services soup kitchen (weekly food servers) • Seventh: Sunrise Senior Center (building relationships, filming life stories) • Eighth: Harrington Elementary School (math and reading tutors) The Grades 5/6 Service Council served breakfast to the homeless community in downtown Denver. They raised funds for the community outreach organization as well. In addition, the Grades 7/8 Service Council sponsored a young woman in Tanzania and raised money to support her education. Through AfricAid, students completed their second year of fundraising for her school expenses, donating $1,000 this year.

ach year, students in first grade build their reading vocabularies for a good cause. Read to Feed is their service learning project in which they collect pasta for the Capitol Hill Community Services soup kitchen for each 15 minutes of reading they do independently or with a parent or older sibling. “In the spring, we take an entire week and try to read as much as possible,” says Lisa Schreiner, Grade 1 teacher. “Students get sponsors to pledge pasta in exchange for reading.” Harris May was a student in Mrs. Schreiner’s class last year who brought several boxes of pasta to school. “We helped feed people at the soup kitchen -- people who don’t have enough money to buy food,” he explains. “When I’m hungry, my tummy growls and says, ‘I’m hungry.’ I was happy that those people would have something to eat.” At the end of the week, the pasta comes rolling in, literally, as many families bring a carload of noodles, according to Lisa. “We count and sort the bags and boxes, then make a bar graph showing the totals,” she explains. When the Capitol Hill Community Services van comes to pick up the food, students lend a helping hand and load it in. Last spring, the driver (and cook) commented, “We just used the last box of pasta the school donated last year. Thank you for restocking our pantry.” To reinforce the service learning message, Lisa and the other Grade 1 teachers are careful to explain the purpose of the reading challenge. “We talk about how important it is to help other people, and the neatest thing is that the students really want to make the world a better place,” Lisa says. “They see homeless people holding signs on the street, and they feel very proud to help them get a meal.”


Second graders created blankets and audio books to comfort patients at The Children's Hospital.


Graland's year round sports program helps keep students active and healthy.

Eagle Awards Graland does not compete in championships or give awards to the most valuable player. Instead, each season of sports recognizes outstanding athletes with Eagle Awards. School coaches select the winners based on the following characteristics.

• Sportsmanship • Dedication • Positive attitude • Discipline

• Commitment • Leadership • Effort • Inspiration

• Good skill development • Working knowledge of the sport

Graland Eagles Soar

Sports Highlights

I

t’s no surprise well-rounded Graland students excelled in athletics in 2011-12. From fall to spring, boys and girls sports kept the crowds cheering for the Graland Eagles.

Athletic Excellence

• Coached by James Foreman, Graland added cross-country running as a co-ed fall sport for Grades 7/8. Twelve students participated in six meets during the season, and the girls took second place overall in two meets. • Undefeated – girls: Grade 8 lacrosse, Grade 8 field hockey • Undefeated – boys: Grade 6 basketball • Winning seasons – girls: Grade 7 lacrosse, Grade 8 basketball • Winning seasons – boys: Grade 7 soccer, Grade 8 soccer • Winning season – coed: Graland’s tennis team.

Gifted Athlete and Leader Some student athletes are motivated by wins, others by an innate desire to achieve. David Wolf, Grade 8, is motivated by his sister, alumna Lucile Wolf ‘11. “We have a competition going for the most Eagle Awards,” he says. “I’m catching up with her.” Eagle Award winners are selected by coaches and must exhibit a number of outstanding characteristics to be considered for the honor. A three-season athlete, David played on Graland’s soccer, lacrosse and basketball teams in the 2011-12 year. “I probably like basketball most,” he admits. “It’s a fun team sport. I play point guard and forward, and I’m better at defense than offense.” David is modest about his achievements in basketball. He won the Eagle Award in seventh grade for his emerging leadership skills as well as being an overall outstanding player. “He’s gifted athletically with skills that are way above his classmates,” comments Coach Christian Isaac. “David is young but aggressive. He’s a good on-court thinker and has good court awareness.” Coach Todd O’Malley remembers when David played against eighth graders in the last game of his seventh grade season. “His opponents were so much bigger physically, but David held his own,” he says. Both coaches also expressed that David was a role model who encouraged his teammates to excel. “Playing sports is a good way to learn leadership skills that you can’t learn in the classroom,” David adds. Balancing schoolwork with athletics is always a challenge but the demands on his schedule are worth it when David considers how his skills have developed since playing under the guidance of Graland coaches. “The coaches are all very good,” he says. “I feel I’ve connected with them personally, and they definitely push me to try harder.”

Lower School Prepares Students for

Lifetime Fitness

Beginning in kindergarten, physical education is taught on a daily basis, incorporating weekly skill themes to guide instruction and learning. PE teachers focus on developing mature motor patterns, as well as the social development skills of participation, cooperation, teamwork and sportsmanship. Beginning in fourth grade, students learn the concepts of offense and defense, rules, strategies and other team ideals as they apply to sports and lifetime activities.

Graland athlete Julia D.

"Graland has so many great coaches. They teach skills, but also the importance of a good attitude and working as a team. I can really trust and rely on them and my teammates during a game because they’re all supportive and encouraging." -Julia D. Grade 7, Eagle Award winner for volleyball and lacrosse


Graland Parent Association: Year in Review The 2011-12 school year was jam-packed with Graland Parent Association events and activities. More than 250 parent volunteers gave nearly 5,700 collective hours to support more than 65 community, fundraising and parent education events. Fall

Winter

Spring

The year kicked off with the annual Back to School Coffee, welcoming more than 300 new and returning parents. A fall tradition, the Graland Gallop was held in Washington Park and raised more than $20,000, an event record. The Book Fair, held at Barnes & Noble Bookstore, saw strong participation and parents made purchases to benefit Harrington Elementary School, a Denver Public School in need.

Holiday Celebrations included the all school Festival of Light and Holiday Sing-Along, VOA holiday party, and Holiday Giving, a charitable program benefiting Jewish Family Service, Eastside Health Center and Volunteers of America. Winter also brought the Birch Street Bash, a new social event, with an impressive turnout of nearly 300 parents, faculty and staff.

Spring brought the annual Lower School Sock Hop, which was promoted using an eighth grade flash mob and enhanced with new features, including the sale of 50s accessories. The Graland Carnival adopted a 60s theme, replete with tie-dyed T-shirts and a Groovy Kitchen. And, the Eagle Invitational Golf Tournament, which moved to CommonGround Golf Course at Lowry, added two new, related events: the Family Golf Clinic and Eagle Breakfast.

Ongoing Throughout the school year, the parent association held several GPA General Meetings. Meeting times were varied in hopes of accommodating working families, and an evening meeting with Lower and Middle School breakout sessions were well attended. The Graland Inclusivity Forum and Taskforce (GIFT) hosted three forums with guest speakers; funded “At the Table,” an all-school Martin Luther King, Jr. assembly; and embarked on a discussion about affinity groups. The Parent Education Network (PEN) organized guest

Supporting Graland speakers for GPA general meetings; hosted three book clubs; presented the documentary film, Race to Nowhere; and helped bring author Wendy Mogel to campus. In sync with the school’s commitment to sustainability, Bike/Walk/Carpoolto-School Day became a successful monthly event. Finally, the Graland Store improved its merchandise selection, established regular store hours and became profitable.

As a direct result of the Graland community’s generous support of two primary fundraisers – the Graland Gallop and the Eagle Invitational Golf Tournament – and other parent association events during the year, the GPA raised approximately $75,000 to donate back to Graland. At the end of the school year, parents voted to allocate 39 percent to financial aid and 61 percent to technology, the two areas of greatest need as designated by the Graland administration.

The purpose of the GPA, as stated in its bylaws, is to: • • • •

Support Graland in achieving its mission Work in partnership with the school to foster community Promote volunteerism Raise funds for the benefit of the school community

Five Fab Ways to

ast fall, we celebrated the opening of the Anschutz Commons, a 14,000-square-foot dining and classroom facility with state-ofthe-art equipment. With its new gold LEED rating, we have even more to celebrate. LEED is an internationally recognized mark of excellence that stands for “leadership in energy and environmental design.” To qualify for distinction, a building must incorporate a comprehensive approach to sustainability in several key areas: • Site selection and development • Water efficiency • Energy efficiency • Materials and resources • Indoor environmental quality To achieve the gold rating, Graland received a score of 62 out of 79 in these areas. “Graland should be proud of this rating,” says Aaron Murray, sustainability coordinator and Graland teacher. “The Anschutz Commons stands as a testimony to our commitment to environmental stewardship.” The US Green Building Council determines ratings and provides independent, third party certification of sustainability. The process of applying for a LEED rating is voluntary and technically rigorous, demonstrating Graland’s leadership, innovation and social responsibility. A plaque recognizing the achievement is installed in the Anschutz Commons dining hall.


Sustainability

I

n addition to the Anschutz Commons, Graland exercises sustainability efforts in many ways. From materials and water use to recycling, Graland goes “green” for the environment and future generations, and we’re working to implement these efforts campus-wide.

Building Materials • • • •

Carpet tiles made of recycled plastic bottles Roof tiles reused from the old Gates Science Building Back fill dirt from building excavations Water-based carpet adhesive

Waste Management

• Dining utensils and dishes are washable and reusable • All food waste is turned into compost and returned to Graland for landscaping projects • Other decomposable organic material that comes from the kitchen is rinsed and compacted to take up less space

Water Use

• Automatic-flush toilets use a measured amount of water • Faucets have sensors that shut off when not in use • Evaporative cooling system in the Anschutz Commons uses water instead of chemical coolants to cool and humidify common spaces

Energy Efficiency • • • •

Dual-paned, gas-filled windows increase insulation Minimal use of incandescent bulbs Sun wells give light to lower level rooms Light sensors turn off when not in use

In other ways, the School educates students and families about the environment with the help of the Sustainability Committee composed of teachers, parents and students. • In Middle School, the Green Club meets each week to share tips for living a more sustainable lifestyle, which are published in Graland Flyer and on the website. • Monthly, the Graland Parent Association sponsors an alternative transportation day to encourage students to bike, walk or carpool to school. • Alkaline batteries are collected in receptacles located at building entrances, and we encourage the community to deposit their used batteries rather than send them to the landfill.

The Graland school community values practices that are environmentally sound, economically viable and socially equitable. The school strives to educate and empower each member of its community, now and in future generations, with the knowledge and motivation to make daily decisions that support sustainability. - Graland's Sustainability Statement, April 2010

A monthly alternative transportation day encourages students to "go green."

Look for the new “Go Green with Graland” logo throughout campus. It’s the stamp of our work to incorporate green initiatives at Graland.

Enriched Learning: Visual and Performing Arts

2011-12 State of the School Report

W

20 20

ith the grand opening of the remodeled Foundations Center, now called the Hamilton Reiman Building, Graland gained valuable performing arts space that was well used during 2011-12. In particular, the Fries Family Theater hosted seven drama performances, nine concerts and one musical. Graland’s visual and performing arts program is integral to the school’s mission to enrich learning through the arts. The arts education component of learning allows students to express themselves creatively and safely in an encouraging environment of supportive teachers and classmates. One parent explains it well. “My daughter is not a huge artistic talent, but she really connected with art teacher Cathy Naughton, who enabled her to experience visual arts in a new way. Cathy builds a very warm, inclusive, nurturing environment that encourages kids to go out of their comfort zone and to believe they can do anything.”


For Future Reference

With a successful year behind us, we haven’t stopped in our pursuit of excellence. Our theme for 2012-13 is “Engaging Learners, Leaders, Families, Community,” and we are off and running toward making this our best year yet.

Engaging Learners We’re in the process of assessing our PE curriculum and enrichment programming to ensure Graland offers a well-rounded education that speaks to every child’s passion and interests. We’re enthusiastic about experiential learning, and we want to make this component a relevant part of our programming. We’re fortunate to live in the middle of a culturally diverse and dynamic city, and we’re exploring how we can take better advantage of Denver’s museums, attractions and so on as an extension of our campus. Field trips allow students to see classroom lessons in a real-world environment that inspires them to learn. And we’re looking at more uses for educational technology as we teach 21st century learners who will compete in a global, digital world. We want to send our students off with the tech literacy competency that they need to navigate life.

Engaging Leaders In the spring, we’ll welcome author and education expert Heidi Hayes Jacobs to Graland where she will guide us in considering 21st century approaches to teaching and learning. Dr. Jacobs is internationally recognized for her expertise in curriculum design, and we’re looking forward to her presentation. Keeping our faculty inspired is the key to classroom success. Professional development will continue to be a top priority as Graland budgets another $150,000 for training our teachers and staff throughout the year. Gail Hill is coordinating and promoting our professional development program in her new role as director of curriculum and instruction.

Engaging

Community

Engaging

Families

We’re focusing more on the working parent to make participation in our community more accessible. By offering evening events and adding more online content to our website, we hope to engage all Graland families in School life. Affinity groups are forming to allow individuals with common interests to share ideas and support each other through challenges. For information on groups already meeting or to suggest a group topic, contact James Foreman, who is leading this effort.

We have already begun plans to expand our preschool program with the addition of two classrooms next year. The Denver community has demonstrated a need for the type of quality programming we offer, and we’re excited to bring more three- and four-year-olds to Graland. We will hire several additional staff in time for the fall 2013 expansion. Graland is also exploring how to open our campus to the wider community for targeted, youth-focused programs. For example, we’d love to grow our summer program and make it available to Graland students as well as nonstudents. With our faculty on board to offer exceptional learning opportunities in academics, arts and athletics, we believe this is a natural opportunity to invite more children to experience Graland. Graland continues to be an educational leader in the Denver community. We’re excited to move forward and, this time next year, to report on another productive and engaging year.

he development office closed a successful year on June 30, 2012, having met or exceeded several advancement goals. The School community again showed its extreme generosity in a variety of ways, all of which ensure Graland will be able to continue offering its exceptional program to Denver students.

Preschool Enhancements Funded

b Frank, preschool benefactor

Two generous donors, one who wishes to remain anonymous, contributed more than half a million dollars in support of Graland’s Early Childhood Learning Center (ECLC). In giving $300,000, our anonymous benefactor designated those funds to provide a tuition discount to faculty and staff whose children are enrolled in the program. Graland is grateful for this gift, and the ability to attract quality educators and staff to our school thanks in part to the ECLC. Significant remodeling of two existing classrooms and a new playground were identified as needs before the preschool could launch in fall 2012. Barbara “b” Frank stepped forward with a $230,000 gift that fully funded these expenditures. The new space is truly enchanting and will delight young children for many years to come.

Annual Fund Goal Exceeded

2011-12 State of the School Report

2011-12 Graland Annual Report

Under the direction of Board President Bruce Rifkin ’72, Development Committee Chair Carol McDermott and Parent Co-Chairs Greg Kintzele ’80 and Seth Terry ‘83, the School was given $753,343 in unrestricted gifts during fiscal year 2011-12. The goal was $750,000. Dollar for dollar matching gift offers toward the end of the school year and several other unexpected donations propelled giving to the goal amount, thrilling dedicated parent volunteers and the Development Committee who worked all year toward this achievement. These generous gifts carry forward to enhance Graland’s programs and experiences for current and future students. The Annual Fund was used throughout the year to purchase library books; classroom, art and athletic supplies; continuing education for teachers; iPads and much more. To the 86 percent of current parents, our alumni, grandparents, parents of alumni and all donors who gave to Graland through the Annual Fund, thank you!

Sam Loewi’s Memory Inspired New Fund

24 24

Graland graduate Samantha Loewi ’05 passed away in February at the young age of 22 from congenital muscular dystrophy, but her effect on Graland continues to inspire. As a memorial to Sam and her positive experiences at Graland, the Loewi family created a special endowment to celebrate diversity and inclusivity. “We learned so very much from Sam’s positive, ‘can do’ attitude,” explains her mother, Pat Loewi. “By establishing this fund at Graland, we hope Sam’s memory and the lessons she taught us will continue to impact the views of future students.” The Sam Loewi Fund will provide excellent training for students, teachers and parents around diversity and inclusivity issues. Many thanks to the Loewi family for establishing this fund and honoring Graland with an endowment in Sam’s name.

C A Legacy Left Behind

Philanthropic Work Literally Saves Adam Writer “What comes around, goes around,” might be a cliché, but don’t argue the truth of the statement with Adam Writer ’86. In a turn of serendipitous events, Adam’s involvement in community service lead to his cancer diagnosis in 2011. A member of Lions Club, Adam was volunteering at the 9News Health Fair that year when he got a blood test with troubling results. After John DellaSalle, another Graland parent, encouraged him to follow up on the screening, he received the cancer news and successful treatment. “It’s true: giving back will serve you in the end,” he says.

Three generations of the Writer family.

hildren learn best by example, a lesson Adam Writer ’86 experienced firsthand from his father. Adam and his brother Jason Writer ’82 grew up with a parent who was disabled, affecting their sensitivity to people with special needs. “Multiple sclerosis [MS] has always been part of my life,” Adam shares. “When my friends came over, Dad was always in bed. He only came to Graland once or twice; he was in a wheelchair, and I felt like everyone was looking at us. It was tough as a kid.” While Adam’s father, alumnus Darin Writer '53, was often physically confined, he was anything but idle. Following his diagnosis in 1974, he soon found there were few resources in Denver to help him adjust to his illness. He reached out to connections in the community who helped start the Rocky Mountain MS Center, a comprehensive care facility at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. A fellow Graland parent, Barry Hirschfeld, Sr., was one of the first to jump on board with the project. Meanwhile, Adam grew up with fond memories of Graland. “My kindergarten class was in the Jones Building back then,” he recalls. “We had the same traditions like knighting, the Great Pumpkin and Field Day. Nancy Priest taught both my dad and me, so that’s fun.” With three children at the School, he is able to relive those days through Kylie, Grade 8, Jake, Grade 5 and William, Grade 3, and now he shares a common teacher with his children: Mr. Hickey. All the Writers are involved in extracurricular activities at Graland: Kylie plays trumpet and volleyball, Jake is an inventor in the Gates Invention and Innovation Program and William participates in Cub Scouts Pack 56 with his dad. Adam also serves on the digital media committee of the Graland Parent Association. “Graland is just a great place with great people...some like extended family,” Adam says. “I don’t keep in touch with anyone from college, and with just a few friends from high school. Most of my relationships are with people from Graland. It’s fun to see my classmates here with their kids.” Adam also continues his involvement with the MS Center, and found a way to connect Graland to the cause. When the School was ready to retire old computers, he approached Ronni McCaffrey, Head of School, with a plan. “I simply asked if Graland would donate the obsolete computers to the Center’s adult day program in Westminster,” explains Adam. Clients at the Center, even those with severe disabilities, could use the equipment to exercise coordination and brain function. A tour of the Center was all it took to earn Ronni’s respect. “I walked in and was amazed that it was such an active and happy place,” she remembers. “For one, the staff is truly inspiring. They are constantly thinking of new ways to help the clients. The focus is on what clients can do, not what they can’t do, and on finding different ways they can function. Chronic disease can be an isolating experience, but not at the Center. The clients are

busy interacting, eating together, talking, and laughing. There is a great sense of sharing and that they are facing their challenges together.” Today, those original computers, plus retired Apple laptops from Graland, are enjoyed by up to 170 clients during therapy and enrichment courses offered by the Center. “We’re very grateful to Graland for improving our clients’ quality of life,” Adam says. Anyone with MS or who knows someone with the disease is welcome to reach out to the Center for help (feel free to drop Adam’s name – he’s a past chairman of the board) or even to contact him personally. The facility offers a range of services for newly diagnosed or severely disabled MS patients, and everyone in between. “I’m proud of my dad’s legacy, but I would be happy for it to end with a cure or a vaccine for MS,” Adam shares. “The disease is hereditary, so naturally I’m concerned for my children. I hope that with all the work being done at the Anschutz Medical Campus, MS will be an afterthought within 10 years.” Dedicated to Graland alumnus Darin Writer ‘53, who passed away in 1982.
