From Where I Stand

As I write, the Cubs are facing the Indians in an historic World Series, and my thoughts have turned to baseball. I was four-yearsold when I played on my first T-ball team. My six-year-old brother wanted to play baseball, and with two working parents, the only viable option was for me to play too. The league required a minimum age of six, so my mom registered us as twins. At tryouts, the league commissioner watched the kids hit and field in order to ensure that teams were created with evenly distributed talent. I was handed a glove and sent to right field, where I sat in the grass and began searching for four-leaf clovers. It was hard to concentrate on my task, however, as they kept hitting balls at me. I got up and tried moving to a different part of the field, where perhaps fewer balls would be hit and I could continue my search uninterrupted. I was then called up to bat. The commissioner handed me a bat, pointed to the ball resting on top of the tee, and said, “Alright, Russell, let’s see what you can do!” What could I do? What should I do? I had no idea. The pole in my hand, the black tube with the ball resting on top of it—I knew it all must be for something. The question was, for what? I scanned my four-year-old brain for patterns, trying to identify scenarios in which one would use these different objects. And then, it clicked. I remembered a scene from Saturday morning cartoons. Curious George went to the circus. They gave him a mallet, which he used to whack the base of a tower, which caused a puck to fly up in the air and ring a bell. When George made the bell ring, everyone cheered! I wanted people to cheer for me, too. I lifted the bat up high over my head and, with all my four-yearold might, slammed it down on the ball, trying to knock it into the tee. The ball fell off the tee, the tee fell over, and no bell rang. Still, the league commissioner looked surprised, so I must have impressed him. And thus began my storied baseball career. This year our all-school theme is, “Embracing Our Stories; Enriching Our Community.” (See our story on the school theme on page 26.)The theme recognizes that in a fast-paced and complex world, community grounds us. The strength of a community is predicated on knowing each other’s stories. Stories

GEORGETOWN DAYS WINTER 2016/17

Russell Shaw, Head of School help develop empathy, insight, and connection. This is especially true in intentionally diverse communities like Georgetown Day School, in which we are profoundly strengthened by our diversity, but only if we make time to learn each other’s stories. It is somewhat paradoxical that in an increasingly globalized world, where technology keeps us “connected” to one another nearly every moment of every waking hour, we have become so profoundly disconnected from one another. Or in the words of Robert Pondiscio in the blog Education Gadfly, “If there is one theme that has emerged from the fractious state of our political and civic lives in 2016, it is not how divided we are, but rather how deeply and stubbornly obtuse we are about one another’s lives.” It is for this reason that GDS has chosen to turn our focus this year to learning, and relearning, each other’s stories. We understand that we have an extraordinarily rich community to mine, and that the healing mission of GDS is made manifest when we take time to know one another. It is in this knowing that we can appreciate a well-hit baseball, but also the subtler contributions, such as the ringing of a bell or even, if luck holds, the discovery of a four-leaf clover.

4th Grade Reenacts Ancient Greek Mythology Each June, the 4th grade hosts a Greek Festival, a celebration of the end of the Ancient Greek unit in humanities. For the festival, students perform in a series of plays based on Ancient Greek mythology and present their long-term projects on a topic of choice related to Ancient Greece. After the performances and presentations, everyone celebrates with a Greek feast with family and fellow classmates. The curriculum building up to the Greek Festival includes months of studying Ancient Greek history, timelines, and mythology. By the end of the unit, students have successfully learned the steps of writing a research paper, including choosing a topic, researching subtopics using reliable sources, paraphrasing, editing, and displaying their work for an audience.

Fourth graders perform their Greek mythology plays in spring 2016.

By the end of the mythology unit, they have also memorized extensive lines and cues for their performance in the plays. Students recall their favorite lines from the plays. "I'll be your wife, but I want to find out what's in Zeus's pretty box,” repeated 4th grader Amelia Holmwood, who played the role of Pandora. Lina Fawaz ’24 shares that what she enjoyed most was getting to scream at Zeus, the Father of the Olympian Gods. Fourth grade humanities teacher Payal Sangani’s favorite part of the Greek Festival is giving students a chance to showcase and celebrate their learning. She said, “Students are excited to be ‘experts’ on their topics and are eager to share their learning with others.” Years ago, GDS Lower School principal and teacher Gloria Runyon and former teachers Joan Foster and Kathy Shollenberger started the Greek Festival as a culmination to the 4th grade’s Ancient Greek history unit. Gloria recalls, “In the early days, each classroom and the hallway were decorated using a theme from Greek mythology or history. Joan was artistically talented and her room was elaborately decorated with a portrait of Jason and the Argonauts, replete with a beautiful paper maché ship! My husband built a Temple to Athena in the hallway and my room housed the Delphi Oracle. Kathy's room was Mount Olympus.” Gloria explains that this kind of elaborate décor went on for a few years, but then the program evolved to incorporate individual student projects and focus more intensely on the Ancient Greek plays.

"Students have asked for more focused discussions on the roles of gender in Ancient Greece history and Ancient Greek mythology." Today, the curriculum continues to evolve, and most recently, students have asked for more focused discussions on the roles of gender in Ancient Greece history and Ancient Greek mythology. Caroline Garland ’24 was particularly interested in learning more about women’s rights in Ancient Greece. She said, “Something crazy that I learned was how badly the women were treated. The women were not respected at all.” And in true GDS form, Caroline and her classmates used this new information about the history of women’s rights in Ancient Greece to be more informed, empathetic global citizens.

FROM THE HOPPER EFFECT BLOG

Science for a Rainy Day By Lynne Mackay-Atha, MS Science Teacher

It was going to be a dreary day… the Capital Weather Gang gave it a 3… out of 10. It was going to rain. all. day. On my way into school it was dark and lightning and the streams along the way were already flowing more swiftly. I made a mental note to myself to tell my students to look at their local streams later in the day. All of these streams eventually empty into the Chesapeake Bay, which we are now studying. And then it occurred to me—rain, streams, erosion, some water seeping into the earth, but much more of it running off, streams swollen with runoff turned brown due to erosion… I already had a good plan for the day, but today was the perfect day to do a lab about what happens to the water when it rains. Could we test how the different surfaces of the earth affect how much of the rainwater seeps in or runs off to the streams and rivers? We had already talked about storm drains and how they carry away water that does not seep into the earth, but we did not have any data, so I decided to change my lesson to connect with what we were seeing in real-time. Plastic containers with holes along one bottom edge could represent the earth. Soil, sand, or gravel would simulate different surfaces of the earth. An empty container would represent land covered with buildings or pavement. Students measured the amount of “rain” that fell on their container and then measured how much water flowed out of the bottom of the container. They repeated the process until they tested all of the possible surfaces. Their data clearly showed which surfaces reduced runoff. A rainy day lab with measurement and variables—a perfect connection to what is going on outside our windows, and how what we do connects to the health of the Chesapeake Bay.

Seventh grade students explore which surfaces reduce runoff in a science lab that helps prepare them for their Chesapeake Bay study.

The Hypothesis Our hypothesis is that if more women graduate college the wage

This Graph Disproves Our Hypothesis This graph tells us that women of different education levels experience the wage gap.

gap will get smaller. We think this becuase if women get more/better education people will start to think of us as equals.

An excerpt from the "Gender Pay Gap and Civil Rights" presentation by Rose Atwood '23 and Maya Raman '23.

Social Justice Statistics Fifth grade math students studying statistics in Luisa Myavec’s and Bryan Williams’ classroom applied their analytical skills in a new unit last year that allowed them to explore a global issue of interest to them. In doing so, they learned how statistics and data can support advocacy and help focus the world’s attention on finding solutions to problems.

Ethan Wolin '23 focused in on global education, testing his hypothesis that individuals with higher levels of education have a greater chance of being employed. In his presentation, he shared numerous graphs sourced from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and U.S. Census Bureau and concluded that education does indeed effect employment outcomes.

Starting with broad global issues (i.e., education, the environment, poverty), Luisa and Bryan asked students to “zoom in” on a topic of their choice and develop a hypothesis related to their topic. Students were then charged with finding data pertaining to their hypothesis, analyzing their findings, and explaining how the data supported—or didn't support— their theory in a PowerPoint or poster presented in class.

Ben Carter ’23 and Jamie Zimmermann ’23 zoomed in on the topic of animal poaching, hypothesizing that illegal poaching leads to species loss and extinction. They found and analyzed data from the South African Department of Environmental Affairs among others to prove their theory; this led to an interest in what it would take to put an end to poaching. Ben and Jamie concluded their project by positing that extinguishing the market for clothes made from animals would cut down on animal poaching.

In preparation for their work, students studied data analysis, learning about causation and correlation—and the difference between the two. Luisa said that students already have passions for things going on in the world around them. “This project allowed students to see how math skills are useful when applied to a real-world issue,” she said.

GEORGETOWN DAYS WINTER 2016/17

“Students were very invested and energetic. We really saw the sparks flying!” said Luisa. “At the end of their work, the students still had questions and wanted to know more about their topic. Having this opportunity to explore social justice issues using math was a great way to have a uniquely GDS math moment.”

PROGRAMMING IN SCIENCE

9th Graders Use Scratch to Demonstrate Their Knowledge of Enzymes As part of an innovation initiative, for one week, 9th grade students added to their biological study for a lesson introducing them to the coding program, Scratch. Students used the platform to illustrate their understanding of enzyme activity. The curricular goal was not only to coach students in strategies to unpack complex problems by demonstrating a specific biological principle, but also to coach students in collaborative strategies.

Two examples of the students' scratch projects. Test your knowledge and check out all of the projects at https://scratch.mit.edu/studios/3548934/

Students watched online teaching videos to introduce them to the Scratch program; they then used the program to develop either an animation or a game to demonstrate how enzymes work. According to biology teacher Cori Coats, students met the project with curiosity—most had never used Scratch before at all, “but all of them worked excitedly on the project!” Most of class time was devoted to collaborating with a partner. Students sketched storyboards to provide their teachers (and themselves), a visual outline of what their endproduct should look like. Students were evaluated on their process and their reflection on the project: how much they learned about the sequencing involved in the commands to make their virtual enzymes move, how they structured their time and worked with their partners, and how well they identified the conceptual accuracies or inaccuracies of their projects.

Class of 2016 HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION

Class of 2016, what will you be taking with you from GDS? For the past six years, Head of School Russell Shaw has asked graduating seniors, “What will you carry away from GDS with you?” This past year even Russell was surprised by the number of responses. As he told the 2016 graduating class, “While I haven’t conducted a detailed study, I’m pretty sure that your class responded in greater numbers, and more thoughtfully, than any class to date.” In his closing remarks to the graduates Russell reminded them, “In those dorm rooms as you unpack your laptops and lava lamps, T-shirts and track shoes, your Maya Angelou and Marquez and Milton, don’t forget the other things that you are bringing with you, things that you’ve taken from GDS: Your memories, friendships and a sense of community, of course. But also your resilience, love of learning, care for others, confidence, friendships, voice, passion, curiosity and moral compass.”

“At GDS, I’ve been surrounded by the smartest people I have even known. At its core, GDS does extremely well what every school ought to be able to do: expose its students to excellent teaching. But GDS has made an explicit choice to go beyond the bare minimum of teaching subjects and aims to ‘teach the whole person,’ to craft its students into responsible citizens.” - Ian Ward “The most important thing I will be taking from GDS is my own voice…. I’ve learned from GDS not to tiptoe around what makes me uncomfortable, but rather to confront my fears, and I am so much better for it.” - Ellie Gottdenker

“I will take with me from GDS the many strong bonds and relationships I have made. I will take with me memories of many hours spent at school after the day has ended to be picked up at 9 p.m. I will take with me the various lessons of morality that teachers, students, and other members of the community have granted me. I will take with me the 13 years I have spent as a Hopper at GDS and will carry them with me for the remainder of my years.” - Laurent Guichard “I will take with me a burning desire to learn about the world around me and challenge things as I go…. GDS has shown me that I have the capacity to usher in change wherever I may be. [I will also bring with me] the belief that change can come with anyone’s actions and that all it takes is for people to do what they believe is right. My time here has reinforced my desire to engage in a morally just way and uphold the rights of others. After GDS, I know that I can tackle any obstacle that presents itself.” - Michael Osaghae

“I will be taking myself. Attending GDS for seven years, I've noticed a change in who I am. This transformation is inevitable; nobody stays the same forever. But the me of right now is very content with herself and with who she is. And I definitely would not be who I am today if I didn't attend this school.” - Sydney Barksdale “I will take with me that tiny feeling in the pit of your stomach when you become inspired to do something and can’t stop thinking about it…. GDS gave me the inspiration to take on new challenges without fear of failure, and the genuine interest to follow through.” - Jennifer West

Schuyler Bailar ’14 Speaks to Current Students

In the fall of 2015, Georgetown Day School alumnus and Harvard swimmer Schuyler Bailar ’14 made national news as the first openly transgender collegiate athlete to compete in a NCAA Division I men’s sport, and in the spring, Schuyler came back to campus to share his story. As the PRIDE week keynote speaker at both the High School and Middle School on April 22, Schuyler shared his remarkable story and encouraged students to practice both acceptance and pride. That evening, the GDS LGBTQ Parent and Allies Affinity Group hosted an open discussion with Schuyler. Parents, faculty, alumni, and friends gathered at the home of Beth Parker and Holly Holland, where Jay Brown, GDS current parent and Human Rights Campaign communications director, engaged Schuyler in conversation regarding his personal journey and the journey of transgender individuals. The questions prompted discussion among the 30 attendees about how schools and school communities can help support gender nonconforming and transgender students. Kendra Brown, GDS current parent and GDS Director of Institutional Advancement, explained the value of having Schuyler speak with the current students: they were able to connect with a young person who has literally walked in their shoes—into the same classrooms, with some of the same teachers. She said, “Schuyler was able to show our students his humanity, making connections through shared experiences and emotions. Meeting a fellow Hopper and understanding their journey, and who they are dispels the feeling of ‘other’ and confirms the reality of ‘us.’” Kendra adds that Schuyler spoke to the importance of empathy in understanding the experiences of transgender and gender nonconforming individuals—a value that GDS upholds.

3rd Annual Future of Diversity Symposium Includes Inaugural Student Cohort Georgetown Day School hosted the third annual Future of Diversity Symposium at the High School from September 25 to 27, and for the first time, a cohort of high school students participated in the conference. The inaugural student cohort consisted of two to four students from each participating school, and together, the cohort spent three days of student learning, leadership development, and relationship building connected to the mission of FDS.

School leadership teams workshop at this year's FDS.

During the two days of student workshops, the high schoolers discussed opportunities for improvement within their schools and possibilities for executing those solutions. Representing GDS were Tyce Christian ’18, Julian Dowell ’18, Alistair Edwards ’18, and Eve Lustig ’18, who were selected to participate based on their commitment to the work of diversity, equity, and inclusion here at GDS, and beyond our walls. Tyce shared, “It is one of those experiences that GDS offers that really can change your whole perspective. It gave me a voice and forced me to take responsibility for my community and actions.” Julian appreciated the opportunity to collaborate with teenagers from different schools. “The ability to talk with other teens was super fun, and to have a lasting relationship with them was honestly more than I could have ever expected,” he said. Tyce’s favorite activity at the conference was the “sharing circle” where students stood together in a circle and took turns saying something that they identify as, such as, “I identify as female.” Other students who identified with the statement would take one step forward into the circle. Tyce said of the experience: “It made me feel included, appreciated, and confident. It was really special to hear my peers validate my experience.”

The GDS student cohort for this year's FDS.

At the end of the conference, students presented their school plans to the all-conference attendees, which gave them a chance to have their voices heard by their peers, other school leaders, and their own school principal, diversity practitioner, and board member. Tyce explained, “We were given the opportunity to come up with solutions, and they really listened to what we had to say. They took our ideas into consideration and came up with a game plan for further work that we could do together.” In addition to student representatives, over 30 school leadership teams from across the nation participated in the symposium. Participants spent three days engaged in workshops, small group discussions, and presentations where they shared their own schools’ experiences and explored ways to make all schools more inclusive and equitable.

Countering Stereotypes Through Art Every year, LMS art teacher Jenn Heffernan looks for a curriculum project idea for her 8th graders that is both timely and true to GDS values. Jenn says that her students are ready and capable of discussing and understanding complicated topics, and they are just as ready to inject it into their art. The resulting social justice artworks are stunning pieces that reflect the students’ budding ability to express themselves through their art. For last year’s project, students created works that directly counter the hateful rhetoric targeting the Muslim community. Taking three traditional Islamic art forms (marbling, geometric patterns, and calligraphy) as their starting point, the students employed marbling and hand-pressed block art overlaid with Arabic words for respect, kindness, empathy, love, or peace.

GEORGETOWN DAYS WINTER 2016/17

According to Jenn, “Anti-Muslim rhetoric is painting a singular, dangerous stereotype of Muslims. Artwork is one of the outlets through which people can reclaim their visual representation and add to the body of images that are out there defining them to others.” “Over their years in GDS visual arts, students have learned how to express themselves through art,” said Jenn. “As older students, they’re learning that art is political, and how to express complicated ideas through art.” Jenn’s work with 8th graders was so successful last year that she worked with middle and high school students during the MLK Days of Action to create smaller posters to further distribute these positive messages throughout the Middle and High Schools.

Students Translate Community Feedback into Large Scale Mural Following up on a series of stenciling and spray painting workshops, Georgetown Day School High School art students volunteered after school to create an original large-scale mural to decorate the hallways of Monument Academy, a boarding school in northeast DC that was founded by GDS parent and former board member Emily Bloomfield. As we shared in the spring, nationally recognized artist Kate Deciccio mentored students throughout the process, which included interviewing current Monument Academy students about what visions they had for the murals and then incorporating that feedback into the final designs. During interviews, Monument Academy students shared that they wanted to see their own portraits incorporated in the murals, and that seeing themselves on the walls of their school would help them feel like the space was theirs. Kate and the HS artists worked together to create a mural that showcased the energy, creativity, and passion of Monument Academy, and enjoyed showing the final mural to students who gasped when they saw just how much their portraits looked like them. See more photos of the students creating the mural online on the GDS media gallery.

Last spring, High School performing arts chair and theater teacher Laura Rosberg decided that it was due time for her students to return to a conventional, multi-locational show, so she selected Leonard’s Bernstein’s On the Town, a performance packed with dancing, singing, live music, costume changes, intricate lighting, and rapidly-changing set designs.

Two hundred high school students collectively produced the 2016 Spring Art Show, which featured 400 pieces of art produced in painting, drawing, photography, digital drawing, ceramics, and multimedia. In addition to creating the works of original art, students also learned the ins and outs of the arts business, as they were responsible for curating, displaying, and advertising the show.

Laura was particularly intrigued by the challenge of On the Town’s costume design demands—performers wore more than 40 costumes, and 50 quick costume changes had to be pulled off during every performance. Never had the theater department tackled a show with that level of costume designing and costume changes, but she knew her designers and performances were up for what she referred to as “an extraordinary challenge.”

High school art student Elizabeth Vogt ’17, who found the entire experience empowering, said, “We were responsible for deciding which pieces should go where, balancing the space, and fitting everything in, which was really an art project in and of itself!”

“Costumes can play such an integral role on stage in defining the characters, their relationships, and the space and time they're in,” said Maaike Laanstra-Corn ’17, who was an On the Town costume designer. “As costume designers, we are able to design the show and use elements, colors, and fabrics that bring the show together in the audience's perspective.” Laura, who was thrilled with the outcome of the performance, said, “The kids are justly proud. The actors were proud of it because it was so well-received by the audiences, but more proud were the designers and technicians because they pulled it off.” The students also exceeded their audiences’ expectations in this extraordinarily challenging, technical, and entertaining musical. 18

Students also had the opportunity to sell their art, which gave them an insight into negotiating with buyers as well as explaining the worth of their work. Elizabeth sold a print to HS performing arts department chair Laura Rosberg. “I was so excited when she asked to purchase a print of mine,” she said. The print was from Elizabeth’s painting “Steam and Snow,” a watercolor painting on illustration board that depicts a figure in a steamy bathtub staring out the window at a snowy landscape. High School visual art director and teacher Michelle Cobb helped Elizabeth and other participating art students set the price on their pieces, and students were encouraged at the positive response they received at the show from friends, teachers, and parents. Michelle Cobb, who is always proud of high school students’ ability to produce a major art show, is also proud that every high school art student participates in the show. “[The show] allows the viewers to see the breadth of work and talent we have at this school,” she said.

Students Channel Election 2016 Call Energy into Creative Design Project of Duty

Fueled by the energy of the 2016 Presidential election, High School studio arts department chair and teacher Michelle Cobb organized the Alternative Political Party Logo Project for her graphic design class. For this project, students designed logos using the software Adobe Illustrator and were required to incorporate into their logos 13 design elements (see below), including demographics, symbolism, balance, and contrast. new logo party Project by Myles Brown

“I thought to relieve election stress and have a bit of fun with a project that allowed students to ‘invent’ a logo for a new political 10/27/16 party,” explained Michelle Cobb. HS student Eamon Abramson ’19 designed a logo for his new political party, the “Rubik’s Cube Party.” By the end of the project, he designed two logos that he thought worked well for his new political party and enjoyed the problem solving required to get to the finished product. “Over the course of this project, I ran into a few problems with getting things to line up or fit the way I wanted them to, and I had to do some creative problem solving to figure them out,” he said. This was only the second graphic design project students completed for the course, and Eamon and his classmates agreed that the challenge was both fun and rewarding.

LOGO PROJECT DESIGN ELEMENT REQUIREMENTS 1 Shape: use a solid geometric shape, circle, rectangle, or square

8 Memorable, simple, and enduring symbolism

2 Demographics: research your audience and create a brand

9 Witty: captures attention and communicates ideas and uses trends but avoids clichés

3  Versatile: marketing for multi platform usage - TV, web, print, video, etc. 4 Color: two colors min. and use bold, primary tones that work well on all backgrounds

10 Fonts: no more than two fonts; looks good at all sizes, good kerning, and good letter spacing 11 Type must reflect the demographics and the feel for the logo

5  Balance design: symmetrical

12 Images: active, simple, flat, and consistent style

6 Readability: legible, bold design, and clean

13 Contrast: good use of positive and negative spaces

7 Hierarchy: image vs. type--which is more important? GEORGETOWN DAYS WINTER 2016/17

Middle School Athletics As an integrated part of Middle School students’ educational experience at GDS, the robust program in competitive and non-competitive athletics allows all 7th and 8th graders to develop skills and strengthen their character, while also trying out a few sports before hitting the High School. With 14 athletic options spread across three seasons, students enjoy the opportunity to try new sports, stay active, and make friendly connections. Sam Rifkind-Brown ’21, who is running for his second year, appreciates being active, seeing friends, and building a community within the athletics program. He said, “I have friends in cross-country who I don't have any classes with, so it’s great to be able to spend time with them when we run.” Coaches appreciate the friendships and team mentality as well. Fifth grade math teacher and MS athletics coach Luisa Myavec said, “I love seeing them outside of the classroom and getting to know each other in a different environment. They learn about each other and build community." 22

DEBBY PREVINA This fall, Georgetown Day School welcomed Debby Saintil Previna as the new Middle School principal. Debby comes to us from Roxbury Preparatory in Massachusetts, where she served as both a Founding Principal and the Director of School Culture and Climate. She has a B.A. in History from Wellesley and an Ed.D in Learning and Teaching from the Harvard University Graduate School of Education. Within her first few months at GDS, Debby has enjoyed getting to know the unique culture of our Middle Schoolers. Here are her top ten observations about 6th, 7th, and 8th graders at GDS: 1. They are worldly.  The image of MS students is that they are primarily and predominantly consumed with their own personal experience, but I'm finding that is not the case at Georgetown Day School. [S]tudents are quite worldly and concerned with the world beyond the School. They’re especially concerned about issues of equity.

6. They are willing to self-advocate.

2. They are complex.

Twice students have come to me as a group asking for help with situations. It’s telling of a community when young people have the power and agency to do that and trust in an institution that they will be listened to and that an adult can help.

They have, even if they are not quite able to articulate it, a sense of the complexity of the world. We have students propose topics of discussion and have students engage others in a conversation about that subject. When we surveyed students, they had some interesting perspectives around issues. They were interested in police brutality, the election and what is going on politically, ISIS, climate change, Flint, Michigan, animal abuse, GDS carpool, and dozens of other wide-ranging issues.

7. They connect with adults on multiple levels.

3. They are curious about managing interpersonal and personal issues ranging from friendships to stress.



4. They are articulate.

8. T  hey have a hunger to learn, empathize, and help with their peers’ and the worlds’ struggles. 9. T  hey also have a hunger to know and share all the good things that are happening in the world. 10. They  are kind and notice when adults are kind. In my first semester at GDS, I’ve received thank you notes, written and email, from students for various things— and hugs.

5. They are optimists.

Renaissance Man TOPHER DUNNE

Violin. Trombone. Guitar. Tuba. Accordion. Gamelan. Standing bass. GDS history teacher Topher Dunne can play them all, and he has played all that and more to support GDS’s high school performing arts department, orchestra, concerts, and assemblies. Topher says his musical career has been about opportunity and enthusiasm for the craft. Though standing bass is his passion (and he performs gigs outside of GDS throughout the year), when the situation calls for it, he’s expanded his repertoire. When his high school didn’t have an orchestra, he took up trombone. When GDS tackled Fiddler on the Roof, he found he had a reason to learn to play the accordion bequeathed to him by his grandfather. When the student bassist was having an appendectomy for jazz fest one year, he subbed in at the last moment. Topher is now in his 22nd year teaching Ninth Grade History, Economics, AP Psychology, European History, Cultural Anthropology, Diversity and Equity: the Intersections of Identity, and World History in the history department, but HS performing arts department chair Laura Rosberg says Topher is also “the unofficial 7th member of our department.” “He not only plays in all of our orchestras, serving as foreman, he has also served as a musicologist on a number of shows, finding the right music to support them,” said Laura. Topher finds a way to bring his love for music into the history classroom as well. His interest and study in ethnomusicology allow him to “bring bits and pieces of historical experiences alive” for his students and “tie in pieces of music or musical traditions into specific places and cultures.”

“Music is a metaphor for teaching,” Topher said. “Paying attention to tempo, the dynamics—a lot of the things that I learned and continue to practice as a musician—plays right into getting the ebb and flow of a class just right.”

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT IN THE HOUSE

Design Thinking for Educators + Latest Thinking on the Brain There’s a new professional development program for teachers at GDS this year that combines the latest knowledge on how we learn with practical classroom applications—and it’s already producing positive outcomes at the GDS High School. Designed by high school Innovation & Technology Coordinator Sheamus Burns, the Learning & Design Fellowship is being piloted by a cohort of 12 teachers, including representatives from science, history, world languages, math, and English. They’ll meet seven times this year, off-campus, and work together through this sustained program to support curricular innovation in their classes. What Do We Know about How Students Learn and How Do We Support Stronger Habits for Effective Learning? At a kick-off retreat in late August, participants took their first deep dive into design thinking through an activity where they came up with their own redesigned faculty meeting. A month later, the fellows met again to learn what the cognitive sciences have to teach us about how humans learn and how this might impact what goes on in classrooms and courses. They heard from Dr. Kelley Nicholson-Flynn, Upper School Head at Riverdale Country School in New York, who delivered an overview of the current research and its implications for schools like GDS. The aim of the Learning & Design Fellowship is to support our high school teachers in understanding more fully how students learn, then to give them the time, space, and structure to translate that understanding into classroom practices supported by the research.

“So many professional development experiences tend to feel like one-offs,” Sheamus notes. “We want this fellowship experience to accompany the teachers throughout the entire year. They’ll get a chance to design (or redesign) a new classroom practice supported by research, try it out in their class, get feedback from their partners and students, then come back to the design table to come up with ways it could be improved.” Participants this year read Make it Stick: The Science of Successful Learning, by Peter C. Brown, Henry L. Roediger III, and Mark A. McDaniel. As the authors suggest, “a central challenge to improving the way we learn is finding a way to interrupt the process of forgetting.” Sheamus believes that focusing on the design aspect of a teacher’s work can have a substantial impact on the way "Make It Stick" principles play out in the classroom. “As teachers, one of our main roles is to design our lessons, activities, and courses to nurture the most effective student learning we can. We want our kids to have every opportunity to make their learning stick, and a lot of times that depends on how we design what goes on inside our classrooms every day.” And so the fellowship cohort has explored through the book and their workshop with Kelley a variety of guiding principles that support student learning in the classroom. After their first training, they went back to the classroom tasked with employing a “Make it Stick” principle. They have been implementing tiny but mighty tactics or daily tweaks to their lesson plans.

HS fellows brainstorm projects for their classrooms during a session this Fall.

One such tactic is low-stakes quizzing. The authors of Make it Stick write that the “power of retrieval is an essential learning tool,” and that often leads to testing in a school environment. But what if the tests (or quizzes in this case) aren’t used toward a grade, but rather for the teacher to quickly learn what kids grasp and what they don’t, so they can better adapt their next steps to support every student’s need. History teacher Marjorie Brimley said that this one concept has already “revolutionized” her classroom practice. Marjorie’s classroom has always been interactive and nimble, as she’s used such approaches as mock trials and group projects to explore historical events—but she feels like this one little thing has transformed her overall teaching approach. She’s added in a quick five-minute quiz at the start of each class using the software Socrative to gauge her students’ understanding of the previous night’s reading or a concept previously covered in class. What she learns from these five minutes can take her in many different directions. One day, she was able to dive deeper into a topic through group work because she learned her students had grasped the concept and could take the next step to analyze it more closely. On another day, she learned her students needed further instruction on a difficult topic. “I’m getting instant feedback,” said Marjorie. “And that means I have found a great way to make sure we’re all on the same page before moving on to the next topic.” Design Thinking for Student Outcomes Having studied its implication for student learning, teachers are now using the protocols of design thinking (empathize, define, ideate, prototype, test) to design curriculum. “A major feature of the [design thinking] protocol is iteration. Often, teachers design curriculum using backwards planning— define your lesson goals and anticipated outcome, and design your path to get there accordingly,” said Sheamus. “Teachers might implement a new project, learn what worked and what didn’t, and then have to wait until the following year

to implement improvements. Built into the design thinking curriculum planning is the ability to return to your classroom right away and investigate with the help of your cohort collaborators what is working and what isn’t…then do this over and over again to improve the practice.” In design thinking for educators, the focus is on the student. Throughout the year, the Learning & Design fellows will work in groups to support each other in the development, implementation, and refining of new curricular units. For history teacher Paul Bolstad, the goal is to “be more student centered.” “This program is giving me a whole bunch of tools,” he said. “We’re using design thinking as both curriculum development tool and as a way to think about brain-based learning; such an approach pulls the students and me together as peer learners.” Science teacher Cori Coats said the fellowship so far has been helpful in her classroom prep. “I’ve had an opportunity to try out lessons with colleagues and problem solve together,” she said. Cori has introduced another "Make it Stick" approach this year, referred to as “interleaving.” Imagine at each basketball practice, you concentrate on one skill at a time. Most practices aren’t really like that; instead, team practices “interleave” multiple skills and approaches throughout the practice. Research shows that “mastery and long-term retention are much better if you interleave practice than if you mass it.” Cori referred to it as “spiral learning,” and she’s been experimenting with this approach in her classrooms to see how it plays out. As the teachers work together this year, they’ll have multiple opportunities to collaborate and design with one goal in mind: engaging our students in classrooms designed to elevate student learning.

GDS identifies a theme on which to build and guide our staff and faculty professional work for the year, including in-service days and peer-to-peer planning. Because it helps to focus our work, the spirit of the theme always trickles into classrooms and shapes our students’ learning experience. This year’s theme is, “Embracing our stories; enriching our community.” Our founding parents believed that children learn more and more deeply when they learn with and from others whose life stories are different from theirs, and that children can only do their best work when they are known, understood, and respected. The same is true for the adults who work at GDS—when teachers and staff members know each other authentically and connect with each other’s experiences, the GDS community and our work together are enhanced. Recognizing that we need to model the openness and empathy we wish to see in our students, faculty and staff are working hard to share their own stories with each other beyond regularly scheduled staff meetings. This fall, GDS launched "family groups", which will meet periodically over the year; each family group includes a diverse mix of faculty and staff spanning divisions,

subjects, and offices. The family groups serve as an opportunity for the adults in the community to deepen their already strong ties with one another, recognizing that the difficult and sometimes messy work of developing a school culture that is truly welcoming and nurturing demands a level of trust and personal engagement that goes well beyond simply being collegial. In addition to our “family gatherings,” teachers are actively seeking to incorporate this year’s theme into their classrooms. Second graders in Jodi Jackson’s physical education class spent one of their first days of class getting to know each other through a team-building activity worksheet. Students were asked to actively find as many members of their class who could answer 15 questions, including, “Will you run a lap with me?” and “Did you watch the Olympics this summer?”

“Second graders are really inquisitive,” said Jodi. “This activity was a great opportunity for students to socialize and engage with each other’s lives and what happened while they were separated over the summer. An activity like this one isn’t just for fun though; kids in this age group are transitioning toward more teamoriented activities—and knowing each other and connecting makes that more natural.” In a departure from a regular substitute routine, some high school students whose teachers are participating in a GDS yearlong professional development program spent their first open class day taking part in a “books as mirrors” project designed by new head librarian and learning commons curator Sonali Kumar.

In the hour-long workshop, students chose a book that mirrored or upheld one aspect of their identity and wrote a postcard explaining why; they then shared their responses in small groups. The postcards are outside the library in a hanging collage. “It’s freeing for students to write about a book in a way that is about their personal experience, and not a critique or analysis,” said Sonali. “I’m delighted with the school’s theme this year, because storytelling is a vital part of community building, and a vital part in the life of the library.” In sixth grade seminar, the entire year is devoted to identity; the focus is on students understanding their own personal narratives, and that of others. During various units throughout the year, students explore socio-economic status, religion/spirituality, age, family structure, race/ethnicity, gender/sexual orientation, and ability/disability using their own stories and personal histories as touch points. “As they’re sharing their stories, they’re listening to others,” said Vinita Ahuja, GDS’s director of extended learning and auxiliary programs and 6th grade seminar designer and instructor.

“The purpose of all of our units is for students to understand more about themselves and others so they can more authentically engage with each other,” she said. Third graders do a number of things to get to know each other and understand themselves more deeply. From a start-of-year “get to know you” bingo game, to an introduction to writer’s workshop, third graders are learning how important it is to be the narrator of their own story.

take on different responsibilities when solving problems helps students see that there can be more than one possible correct answer. But the group work has another benefit: “Students have the opportunity to see the different ways people see things,” said Holly. At GDS, diversity has never been ancillary; it is the ground out of which a GDS education springs. Telling our stories is just one way to fertilize that ground.

Third grade teacher Laura Howell said she tells her students, “Every piece of your life is part of your story, that’s what you know. You’re not going to know people unless you know their story and have a connection at a deeper level.” Teachers in third grade are also focusing on helping students understand themselves and others as learners. Math teacher Holly Balshem started off the year helping students understand what having a growth mindset means and why making mistakes and taking risks are tools for learning. In-class group work where students

REBELLION

n the fall of 2014, the Middle School history department took a critical look at revamping their 7th grade curriculum. The team wanted to harness middle schoolers’ natural inclination for rebellion and turn that passion into a challenging and dynamic academic experience. Global revolutions and power struggles, a twosemester deep dive into rebellions, was born. Seventh grade history teacher Erika Carlson describes it as, “the class I had wanted to teach all along, without knowing it.”

Students appreciate the diversity in the curriculum that diverges from the typical look at history and instead dives into histories of communities around the world.

S P E E K D AN NY NIT ZA THE CURRICULUM Building off of the 6th grade historyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s focus on how power structures are built and where power is located in societies and civilizations, 7th grade history explores how power structures can be resisted, changed, destroyed, and rebuilt anew. Over the course of the 2016-17 school year, 7th graders will learn about the Haitian Revolution, the partition of the Indian Subcontinent, and the Iranian Revolution. Erika loves how the new approach gets right to the heart of the GDS mission. She explains that students enrich their understanding of race when they learn about Haiti, their understanding of religion when they learn about the Partition of India and Pakistan, and their understanding of the U.S.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s place in the world at the completion of the unit.

This year, Erika and Julia have enjoyed piloting a few new approaches and ideas in the course. After attending the Washington International School Summer Institute for Teachers, Erika and Julia became interested in incorporating techniques from Harvard Graduate School of Education’s Project Zero. One technique, the “thinking routine,” is a process that helps students achieve a deeper level of thinking and cultivate curiosity and thoughtfulness. Julia described one example of a “thinking routine” known as “see, think, wonder”: “We present students with an image and ask them what they see in the picture. This helps them practice gathering specific, concrete evidence. Then, we ask them to hypothesize about what they think is happening in the scene, based on that evidence. Last, we ask them to come up with questions about the image to cultivate curiosity and thoughtfulness.” Before Thanksgiving break, students finished a unit on Haiti where they considered how people effectively break apart an unjust status quo, talked about what motivates citizens and groups, and discussed what makes societies stable and resilient. Julia explained, “They engaged in thinking routines that asked them to consider the role the French Revolution played in the Haitian Revolution, Toussaint Lovuerture's switch from fighting for the Spanish to fighting for the French, and other turning points of the revolution. At the end of the unit, students considered how the Haitian revolution is still impacting Haiti and the rest of the world today.” Seventh grade student Maddie Carroll ’22 appreciates how the curriculum connects historic events to contemporary society. “I really like the way that the curriculum is built around strategies that you can use to create social change in real life,” she said. Following Thanksgiving break, students began their study of the partition of the Indian Subcontinent. Julia explained that at this point in the year, each 7th grade history period will be assigned a theme that they will track through the end of the school year, and the evidence that they gather will be incorporated into a final “Power Project” presentation. The themes will be

selected from the course’s core questions, which include: How do we effectively break apart an unjust status quo? What makes societies stable and resilient? What motivates citizens or groups? How can collaborating across difference create social change? What will be the next evolution of social reform or revolution?

KEEPING IT ZANY That final “Power Project” presentation is the culmination of the year’s work, and since launching the new curriculum, it has been a dynamic, multimedia performance. Last year on June 2, the 7th grade presented the second annual performance titled “Power: A Journey Through Our Study of Global Revolutions.” The performance combined film, music, dance, speeches, and skits to illustrate the struggles of power from across the globe, including Haiti, Iran, India, and Pakistan.

Preparations for the power performance are a learning experience in and of themselves. Erika and Julia explained that the process of directing and performing fosters virtues of leadership and teamwork in the 7th graders and also helps the students to better understand and apply the information they learned. Those who have seen a “Power Project” will remember how 7th graders manage to incorporate humor and wit into a lengthy performance on power struggles. Erika said, “And despite all the doom and gloom that comes from a curriculum surrounding imperialism and oppression, because, let’s be honest, it’s kind of a downer, just the right amount of middle school zaniness remains.”

AN INTERVIEW WITH GDS ALUM

Jonathan Safran Foer ’95 This year, GDS alumnus Jonathan Safran Foer ’95, published his novel, Here I Am. He is also the author of several award-winning books, including Everything is Illuminated, which won him the National Jewish Book Award and the New York Pubic Library’s Young Lions Prize, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, and Eating Animals. This fall, he spoke with Associate Head of School Kevin Barr about his latest novel via phone.

GEORGETOWN DAYS WINTER 2016/17


Kevin: Thank you for taking the time to talk. Not surprisingly, your book has been getting much well-deserved attention. Most of the commentators have focused on the plot and the theme, but somehow overlook the sheer craftsmanship on display in the novel. In telling your story, you seem ready and willing to use just about any narrative technique you need, whether that's shifting points of view, multiple voices, subtle allusions to other writers and works, or jumps in time. Would you talk about the choices you made to use such varying techniques and approaches. Jonathan: I don't know if “choice” is exactly the right word. It's sort of the right word. It might be the best approximation of the right word, but so much of writing for me is really intuitive, and often it is an effort not to choose something in a conscious and intellectual sense, but just let things be and to let things follow the path that they seem to want to follow. Kevin: That makes sense, but if it’s not the conscious “you” constructing the narrative, who is it? Jonathan: Well, the subconscious is very powerful and very smart, and probably smarter than the conscious mind, and it keeps order. And then I am also an editor of my work. Once a draft is generated, I really do then switch hats at a certain point and say, "Okay, here's what we've got." There's a great story about Jackson Pollock and the way he would paint towards the end of his life that touches on this point. Pollock would put down these massive canvases, outside like, 40 feet by 50 feet, and paint them. When the paint dried, he would look at what he had and cut smaller paintings from it. Kevin: Before you get to the editing phase, though, what keeps you going? Is it the engagement with the process or is it the curiosity about the characters that you are bringing to life, or is it both? Jonathan: I think it's probably the engagement with the process. I love writing characters, and they can often move me, but I never think of them as real people. My relationship to them is much more like what I imagine, let's say, a painter's relationship is to different colors. Kevin: Let’s talk just a little more about characters. There are stories of Dickens weeping while he was writing or reading aloud passages from his novels; and apparently Joyce would be down in the kitchen writing and cracking up at some of his funnier bits until Nora Joyce would have to tell him to shut up and come to bed. How emotionally invested do you get in your characters? There are certainly passages in Here I Am that had me weeping. Jonathan: I do get emotionally invested in my characters, but interestingly, it's not necessarily when I'm writing them. Writing

for me is a process that’s almost more physical than mental, as odd as that might sound. I don't think about my writing when I'm writing it. I think about my writing to some extent when I'm editing it, which is almost a completely different process—writing and editing. Kevin: Understood. Jonathan: One of my favorite sayings is “a bird is not an ornithologist.” Just because you like something, doesn't mean you can explain it or choose to be it. Writing is kind of on the bird side and editing is a little more on the ornithologist side. It’s actually when a book goes into the world and I start having conversations with readers that I do my first real thinking about it. Kevin: Tell me a little about what goes in to the editing process for you. Here I Am is a very substantial text. Was it even longer before you started the editing process? Jonathan: Oh yeah. I had this experience recently where I was in Milan and I went to see Michelangelo's final sculpture, which is one of his pietàs. He made it only for himself, and there are a lot of really weird things about it. The weirdest is that there are two figures, but five arms; one of the arms is not attached to a body. It seems to be a residue of a time when he thought there would be three or four or five figures in the sculpture, and then he decided he just wanted two. The docent said that when something like that occurs in a piece of art, it’s called a “regret.” The regret is an artifact of a change of mind. So the question is, why didn’t he get rid of it? It would just look better without it. Kevin: Right. Jonathan: And one can come up with all kinds of mystical explanations, but the truth is that if you got rid of it, the sculpture would fall over, as the center of gravity of the sculpture required it to be there. It can be like that with the novel, although novels don't topple when you edit them. You can remove things as much as you want, and, in fact, they sometimes feel like they topple if you don't remove enough. But, there's a kind of regret that I really love. I’m just drawn to it; I like books that show the hand of their maker. Sometimes they can seem a little bit ungainly, but I like it because I think it creates a kind of intimacy with the author. At the end of the day, there's a whole lot of infrastructure in publishing a book. It's typeset, it goes to a printing press, the cover is designed, and then you give interviews or you stand in front of people and you talk about it. And ultimately it's all in the interest of what is a very intimate relationship [between reader and author]. I wrote the book in my little red chair in my dining room and then somebody else is going to read the book in their red chair, or in their bathtub, or in their bed.

Alumni Notes Kevin: The title, "Here I Am" alludes to the Akedah, the binding or sacrifice of Isaac by his father Abraham. But, within the novel, it describes the main character Jacob's inability to be present in his own life until the very end when he can let Argus [the family dog] go. That acceptance of the reality of death brings him forcefully into the moment he is in; yet that declaration of presence seems at odds with Billy's wonderful statement, that if the question is “To be or not to be,” the answer might just be “To be and not to be.” You seem to be saying that somehow we have to be present and not be present in the world and in the moment simultaneously. Jonathan: As a friend of mine once said, “The only people that are worth putting your full trust in in life are those who can hold extreme paradoxes in their mind.” It's what Keats called negative capability. Kevin: Explain that. Jonathan: On the one hand, life isn't black or white. There’s this extremely wide range of choices, experiences, and feelings available to us between extremes. On the other hand, sometimes it is black and white, and Jacob often misdiagnoses what's binary and what isn't binary. Neither one is right. Jacob is not right, and Billy is not right. They're both right, and negotiating or navigating that confusion is really a task. Kevin: A huge task, yet it appears Jacob achieves it at the end. Jonathan: I am not sure that I could say that. Though some people think that those final words, "I'm ready," ring hopeful. Kevin: Well, he does come to realize that life is precious, and he declares his intention to live in the world. The fact that he can get that seems hopeful to me. Jonathan: That statement at the end is a perfect example of what we were talking about. It’s never one or the other. One cannot be a perfect idealist while living in the world. We know that life is precious, and that we should have seven million refugees living with us but [then we catch ourselves saying], “My house isn't that big and my marriage depends on a certain kind of domestic stability and peace,” or we say, “Life is precious so I should quit my job and volunteer for Doctors Without Borders,” but we live in the world, and so we don’t. Kevin: So we have no choice but to accept that paradox and just live it out. Jonathan: Yes. Kevin: Tell me a little about what’s going through your mind as you are writing?

40

GEORGETOWN DAYS WINTER 2016/17

Jonathan: Whenever I've written, I've always had a voice in my ear saying, “this is the last thing you're ever going to write.” I don't mean it in the sense that I'm going to die, and I don't mean it in the sense that I won't write another book, but it is literally the last thing that the person writing it will ever write. I'll change. You know, when I look back on my old books it’s like they were written by a different self; it's like this self has one opportunity to say what he wants to say. That's part of the explanation for all of those regrets [like that unattached arm of Michelangelo] that are in the novel. You know, the book has a lot of little anecdotes and stories and images and jokes that would be very hard to argue are necessary if one wanted to trim; and there's a lot that you could trim, but that fullness to me reflects both what life is like but also, I think, my sensibility. This book is not any more autobiographical or cathartic or therapeutic than other books. But I did feel a closeness to it that I didn’t feel with my other books and I think it has to do with it being an expression of my sensibility. Kevin: Before we end, any advice for younger writers? Jonathan: It sounds so silly but it is true: the best of advice of all is don't stop. There are so many things that will encourage a young writer to stop. Writing can make you feel very vulnerable and very stupid. I know writers that battle this stuff every single day: feeling stupid, feeling insecure, feeling that what they're working on is worthless, feeling that nobody will get it or nobody will care. Nobody should care. Nobody's going to state these feelings, but as a writer, just acknowledging that they're okay—that they are not symptomatic of a problem, they are just symptomatic of the endeavor—can be a huge relief. Perseverance is more important than any other writer-ly quality, and so it's the thing that should be worked on the most. If something draws you to the page, you do that. If you persevere, you can make that thing good. That's it. There isn't really a subject that can't be made good. Kevin: That's good advice…And now for the last question, anything you want to pass on to your old teachers, or school? Jonathan: [Chuckles] A lot of gratitude really. I mean there is a lot of DC in that book. Kevin: There is. We appreciated the references to GDS. Jonathan: I was very happy mentally going back to that time and place, although high school is an almost intolerably painful experience as I remember it. Between acne and insecurity and idiots, you know, it's hard. But GDS was just so formative for me and if I lived in DC, I’d want my kids to go there. This interview has been edited and condensed.

Burgeoning DC Food Scene The New York Times, Washington Post, and the Wall Street Journal continue to rank DC as an up-and-coming foodie city. Our city was even named the Restaurant City of the Year in 2016 by Bon Appétit magazine. And GDS alumni are part of this burgeoning movement. In the past two years, two new alumni-owned businesses popped up in the trendy northwest DC neighborhoods of Park View and Petworth—Colony Club and Timber Pizza.

Colony Club, a chill coffee bar and ping pong club that morphs into a bar by night, is owned by GDS alumnus Max Zuckerman ’06, who says he knew early on in college that he wanted to create a community-oriented space where people could meet, work, read, play games, and listen to live music in a welcoming and fun environment. Shortly after graduating from college, Max opened Colony Club in Park View, a neighborhood otherwise lacking this type of community space.

Alumni Notes As a nod to his alma mater, Andrew named one of Timber Pizza’s first pies after GDS HS dean of students, Bobby Asher. The Asher Pizza, featuring tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, roasted corn, hot peppers, smoked paprika, and micro cilantro, matched Bobby’s playful personality and was a hit with patrons. High School experiential learning coordinator Catherine Pearson took GDS alumnus and public policy institute intern Andie Asher ’15 to Timber Pizza to celebrate the end of her summer internship. “Of course we ordered the Asher because it was named after Bobby, and it also sounded delicious. And it was!” Catherine said.

GDS alumni are also at the foundation of DC’s food scene. GDS alumni parents and current grandparents Virginia and Ben Ali own Ben’s Chili Bowl, a DC institution serving spicy hot dogs, chili-cheese fries, and milkshakes since 1958. The Ali family also opened Ben’s Next Door and the newer Ben’s Upstairs on H Street, NE. Comet Ping Pong is another DC institution, situated in the Chevy Chase neighborhood of the city. Owned by James Alefantis ’93, who also own next door’s upscale Buck’s Fishing and Camping, Comet Ping Pong is a popular weeknight spot for GDS families looking to grab a slice, play some ping-pong, and unwind. It’s also a spot where you are sure to bump into friends, colleagues, and neighbors who are also looking for a fun, lowkey dinner out. Take a look at the GDS alumni map of restaurants and cafes throughout the city—whether you’re looking for BBQ, pizza, a great cup of coffee, or a halfsmoke, chances are there’s a GDS alumni-owned restaurant or café that will do just the trick. Own a restaurant or cafe and want to add it to the map? Email GDS storyteller Kimberly Goldwein at kgoldwein@gds.org.

Max credits GDS for encouraging creativity in its students and fostering an ability to throw oneself fully into a new arena—two skillsets that came in handy in the design and pre-opening phase of Colony Club. “Running a shop is all about interacting with people from all walks of life, customers, staff, neighbors, etc., and I think GDS was great prep for that,” said Max. Max keeps in touch with his GDS buddies. Mike Okusami ’06 plays live jazz once a week at Colony Club, and the shop serves pizza bagels from his friend’s new restaurant Timber Pizza, a wood-fired pizza place in Petworth, owned by Andrew Dana ’06.

PEOPLE

PROGRAM

PURPOSE

Treasurer’s Report I am pleased to report that GDS had another terrific year. We are fully enrolled, with many applicants competing for each spot in all grades. We expanded our excellent programming schoolwide and in each of our divisions. We ended fiscal year 2016 with a small budget surplus and have maintained our commitment to keep tuition increases as low as possible. We could not have achieved these overall results without the careful management of our resources by our Head of School Russell Shaw, the Principals, and the Finance and Operations and Advancement teams. The Board of Trustees, in partnership with the staff, has worked to ensure that our operations are focused effectively on achieving our mission; they have also provided the financial stewardship necessary to strengthen the sustainability of our programs for the future. Without a doubt, we also could not have achieved these results without tremendous support from our community. Nearly 83% of our parent body and 85% of our faculty contributed to the Annual Fund last year, raising a record $2.2 million, all of which will be used in our operating budget to support our students’ learning. Thank you! The Annual Fund is vital to the success of our School, and we hope that we can continue to count on your support for this year’s campaign. We have continued to take meaningful steps to enhance the compensation of our treasured faculty to promote academic excellence and long-term retention, and to ensure that we are fully competitive with our peer schools. We have also continued to focus on our programs and have:

We continue to make progress towards campus unification. We are closely evaluating the opportunities to promote our long-term financial sustainability and fulfill our mission. And, of course, Russell, the Board, and our administration remain fully dedicated to and focused on the lived experience of our current students from day to day. We deeply appreciate our community, and we thank you for your continued support.

ANNUAL FUND – GIFT CLUBS GDS is a community built upon lifelong, authentic relationships, exemplified by our treasured faculty-student connection. GDS is a school for innovation and critical thinking, with a focus on learning through doing. Our academic program challenges students to think for themselves and test boundaries within a safe environment, where each child is nurtured and supported as an individual. GDS is a school founded with a purpose. The GDS Annual Fund supports our exceptional teachers as they stay at the top of their teaching craft and our diverse student body as they learn through collaborative problem solving. The Annual Fund ensures that teachers have the resources and flexibility to innovate their curriculum to develop ground-breaking pedagogy, puts technology in the hands of every student, and provides differentiated instruction to support the whole child. When you donate to the Annual Fund, you are supporting an education that fulfills our deepest values—an education with public purpose, where our children learn to advocate for themselves and for others. Our gratitude to each individual who contributed to the Annual Fund in 2015-16 is so much deeper than what can be reflected in words—this report is one attempt to demonstrate our gratitude. It is in the growth and accomplishments of our students that the impact of your giving is best demonstrated. Thank you!
