THE ANNUAL REPORT 2018


A LETTER FROM THE HEAD OF SCHOOL

Dear Friends, What a delight it is for me to have spent the past six months learning about Maumee Valley and experiencing this dynamic community first hand. Each new day is filled with wonder and remarkable experiences for our community. Included in this issue of The Valley is our annual report for last year’s giving. I am deeply grateful to this community for the philanthropic spirit that exists among all constituencies. Even our youngest students learn to give of themselves in service to others. Service is woven into the fabric of the Maumee Valley experience. Our students benefit from your gifts of time, talents, and treasures, and we remain sustainable for the next generation due to your engagement. Thank you.

LYNN D. CASTO, head

of school

Maumee Valley continues this year with impressive enrollment, 574 students strong and waitlists in our Upper School and parts of our Early Learning Center. Our applications have increased in this admission season. This is no doubt due to the experience and dedication of our faculty and staff who work diligently to make sure that each child is known, supported, challenged. As we find ourselves already entering into the second half of the school year, I look forward to a continued sharing of learning experiences with our students, faculty, and parents. Maumee Valley fosters an environment where children explore their passions and learn how they can use their talents to make a positive impact in our global community. Thank you for your warm welcome to our beautiful community. I look forward to meeting with each of you and hearing your Maumee Valley stories.

My best to each of you,

Lynn D. Casto Head of School

ATHLETICS NEWS International Student Eligibility is a Game Changer for Athletes Before July of 2017, international students who did not possess J1 Visas were not eligible to participate in OHSAA Athletic Events. Those students were allowed to condition, be with the team, practice with the team, do anything any other player would be able to do, except compete in regular season games or scrimmages. With over 30 international students attending Maumee Valley Country Day School without a J1 Visa, many of our students were purposely being left out of athletic competitions. In July of 2017, the Governor of Ohio signed into law a bill that included a section requiring the OHSAA to allow full eligibility for international students who possess F1 visas, allowing our international students to play in OHSAA competitions. This was huge news for our school! Now all students who attend Maumee Valley can have a choice as it relates to their extracurricular activities and enjoy the same opportunities as other athletes. This has been a significant advancement and has had a tremendously positive impact on the school and school spirit. We are thankful to all who worked hard to advocate for our international students to make this happen!

FALL ATHLETICS RECAP Varsity Golf The 2018 Varsity Golf team continued its success of recent years. Senior Evan Heritage led the way again this year earning 1st Team All TAAC Honors for the 2nd year in a row. Brandon Nickens had an outstanding year earning 1st Team All TAAC Honors, with Mihir Joshi earning 2nd Team All TAAC Honors. The team itself finished as Runner-Up in the TAAC Championships at Stoneridge Country Club in Bowling Green, narrowly missing winning the championship. Coach Craig Jacobs was selected as TAAC Coach of the Year and has done a tremendous job developing our program into a contender, year in and year out.

Varsity Field Hockey Finishing 12-5-1 with a strong attack (79 goals scored) and stellar defense (10 goals scored against), the Varsity Field Hockey Team had an impressive season that was close to historic. There were significant victories throughout the fall, and every loss the team experienced was by only one goal, including their playoff loss in overtime to Hudson, who made it to the State Final Four. Senior Shannon Herrmann set the career record for goals scored at 112, including 40 this year alone.

14


CURRENT Varsity Soccer Our 2018 Varsity Soccer Team also provided us with a very potent scoring attack with almost 100 goals scored on the season. Senior Mujahid Abdel Ghani set a career record with 75 goals scored in just two years, and the single-season record with 37 goals scored this year. Mujahid is a two-time NWOHSSL Player of the Year recipient, 2018 TAAC Player of the Year recipient, and 2018 1st Team All-District Selection. Sophomore Jack Zilba was also selected as 1st Team All TAAC and NWOHSSL Honors due to his stellar defensive play throughout the year. Noah Greenbaum, Patrick McNally, and Ethan Lodge were all 2nd Team Selections as well. Above all, the Soccer Team finished as champions of the Northwest Ohio High School Soccer League.

Varsity Tennis The Girls Varsity Tennis Team continued to make strides in 2018. With a focus on off-season skill development, the team continued to improve as the year progressed, finishing the season with both doubles teams advancing to the Semi-Finals of the State Sectional Tournament. Seniors Julia Xiong, Stephanie Avram, Grace Lee, Emma Nichols, and Annie Kaser finished incredible careers at Maumee Valley playing their best tennis.

Cross Country In only their second year, the Cross Country Team continued to make huge gains for such a young program with no seniors. Each runner was able to reach a personal best time, and the team finished as Toledo Area Athletic Conference Runner-Ups, narrowly missing the Championship. Jeremy Mahoney ’21 and Lucas Szollosi ’20 were both 1st Team All Toledo Area Athletic Conference selections. Quinn Dunlap ’21 earned 2nd Team All Toledo Area Athletic Conference selection as well. Eighth Grader, Emily Porter finished as the Toledo Area Athletic Conference Champion after a great season that included several first-place finishes at some of the toughest meets in town. Eighth Grader, Gabe Hunt also had several first-place finishes during the season and finished Toledo Area Athletic Conference Runner-Up, capping off an excellent season for the Middle School Team.

Middle School Sports Both the Middle School Soccer and Field Hockey Teams demonstrated exceptional progress over the fall season. The Middle School Soccer Team became stronger as the year went on and with 27 players, the soccer program is in healthy shape. This year’s Middle School Field Hockey Team improved tremendously throughout the season as well, concluding with a game under the lights at the University of Michigan. We look forward to watching our Middle School athletes develop as they move on.

THE

Wolfe Gallery AT MAUMEE VALLEY

Artists raise awareness, provide insight and ideas that are new to us, show us sympathy and appreciation for others and animals, and even “give back” to others using their artistic talents. Throughout the fall, MVCDS students experienced life in East Africa— Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda—through touring the Wolfe Gallery, and thereby learning from the lens of featured artist Chris Johnson Gordon ’76. Each photograph, unique in its special way, captured wildlife in their natural habitat: they were seen at rest, in action, at lunch, and in family relationships. Students admired the works with curiosity and interest and were impressed with the variety of wild animals captured through Gordon’s work. Many students were particularly sympathetic toward refugee girls, and orphaned school-children in Nairobi, while other students expressed a fascination with the portraits of nomadic people and others who live very differently than we do here in Northwest Ohio. Proceeds from the sale of the photographs exhibited went towards those in need in the areas that artist Chris Johnson Gordon has visited, including women farmers in Kenya, a children’s hospital in Uganda, refugee girls, orphaned school-children in Kenya, and people fighting to save elephants from poachers in East Africa. Earlier this fall, the Maumee Valley community learned from another alumna about the power of impacting a community for the positive through the sale of art. A volunteer for the organization, Bead for Life, Margaux Foster Ford ’09, visited campus and promoted the sale of recycled paper beaded jewelry made by Ugandan women working their way through poverty.

THE FEATURE STORY

There is an

understanding at Maumee

Valley Country Day School that once something is done one year, it becomes somewhat of a tradition in years to follow. From the whole school gathering the day before Thanksgiving to sing the Turkey Dinner song, to the yearly Graduation Ceremony on the Bluestone in late spring, traditions are an important aspect of the Maumee Valley experience. So, when the opportunity arose to establish precedence for a monumental ceremony, it was allhands-on-deck to make the Installment of our eleventh Head of School a celebration steeped with tradition. It was a chilly September morning when guests arrived on campus to the sounds of the Student Strings Ensemble. Their pre-ceremony melodies drew visitors to an elegantly staged Wolfe Gallery Bluestone where they mingled with school supporters and community members. The welcoming and refined performance created excitement that was palpable as students from preschool through twelfth grade entered and took their seats.

After the Strings concluded the final strains of “Contredanse”, by Larry Clark, President of the Board Matt Buchanan welcomed guests and reflected by saying, “We have a rich history and many proud traditions; our students and our faculty continue to achieve truly wonderful and impressive accomplishments, and our welcoming campus has unparalleled beauty.” Guests nodded in agreement as the campus glowed with beauty in the rising morning sun. However, Matt continued to 23


THE FEATURE STORY explain that even with the most extraordinary campus, the facilities are merely buildings without “…the people of Maumee Valley and the values that bring us together made up of students, faculty, alumni, administrators, staff, parents, and friends. Everyone here today.” Visitors smiled with pride, surrounded by familiar faces of cherished acquaintances, as Matt wrapped up his opening remarks and introduced Honorary Speaker and valued long-time friend and supporter of Maumee Valley, Ann Stranahan.

As Ann approached the podium, she brought an impressive air of tradition to the Installment stage. Her words quickly rang true as she reminisced specifically about Miss Leland, who early in the school’s history became a disciple of the Country Day School Movement. Ann recapped Leland’s passion of the movement by saying, “…it meant a radical new teaching methodology that went at education holistically. It stressed the importance of the outdoors, embraced experiential teaching, and encouraged students and teachers to share their personal stories.” Ann stressed that although Miss Leland was a pioneer in education over eighty years ago, her ideas continue to be the foundation of Maumee Valley’s progressive education today. As Ann concluded her address with words from the great Victorian poet, Alfred Lord Tennyson, the community was brought to their feet in adoration of her extensive knowledge and love for everything Maumee Valley.

After a warm standing ovation, sixty-two members of the Lower School Choir led the audience in the singing of the Alma Mater. Matt Buchanan congratulated the students for such an impressive performance and introduced the morning’s Upper School student speakers, Denise Tamesis ’19, Mihir Joshi ’20, and Grace Momenee ’19. Denise Tamesis, co-president of this year’s student body, leader of the Upper School Speech and Debate Team, and recipient of the Erie Chapman ’61 Foundation Renaissance Award described her Maumee Valley experience as a collection of puzzle pieces collected throughout the years. She explained, “…Maumee Valley provides the materials for us to shape our own personal piece.” Denise elaborated in detail about how the school helped her learn more about herself each year, gaining a small piece of the puzzle that eventually came together for her as a senior to create a bigger, clearer picture. “We’ve all been pushed to be the best versions of ourselves, and despite our unique differences in that, each and every embraced puzzle piece is absolutely extraordinary. Brought together, we paint this beautiful picture at Maumee Valley, and there’s simply none other like it.”

A member of the golf and soccer teams and student council, Junior Mihir Joshi equated his ten years at Maumee Valley to a collection of “kid in a candy store moments.” He 24

THE FEATURE STORY explains how within each new grade of his educational journey he became more excited about the selection and tried to devour all that the school offered him. “I came to Maumee Valley ten years ago, and in every division, I have found a number of candy stores that have stuck with me. I wanted to have as much fun as possible, so I tried to get involved in all that our school offered.” Mihir described one of his most impactful candy store moments as, “Recently, I had the opportunity of being able to spend three weeks to spearhead a research paper in bioengineering by working with insightful professors. I genuinely felt as though I had an equal say as the professionals who have been working in this field for more than a decade.” As Mihir concluded he said, “Our school gives everyone their opportunity to find their own candy stores and experience as much as possible while having the most excitement in doing so.”

Wrapping up the student speeches, student body co-president Grace Momenee, took the stage. Now in her senior year, Grace has fully embraced the opportunity to become a global citizen through her involvement in the Global Leadership Program and by participating in school-sponsored travel to India and France. Grace compared her world experiences to the many colors of a kaleidoscope, ever-changing and new with each turn. “Being a student at Maumee Valley for the past ten years has given me the unique ability to keep twisting my kaleidoscope. Every person I’ve met and every opportunity I’ve acquired has altered my perception of this world.” As she listed the many opportunities she’s taken advantage of at MVCDS, Grace expressed her understanding of what each taught her over the years by saying, “Maumee Valley has given me an everchanging kaleidoscope that has taught me to appreciate every moment, even the ones on my periphery that may seem insignificant. I have learned to embrace a change of perspective and use these experiences to guide my future.”

Grace summarized the eloquent presentations by the student speakers by saying, “Throughout our lives, it isn’t often that we find opportunities as unique as those at Maumee Valley. Our school allows students to have a personalized education, hands-on experiences, and journeys that increase global awareness. These three components are what makes Maumee Valley so special. It is these components that inspire students to become the best possible version of themselves and discover what it truly means to desire to make a difference in this world.”

With huge smiles upon their faces, choir students ranging from first through sixth grade broke out in a triumphant performance of “Clap and Sing,” by Victor Johnson. The choir 26


THE FEATURE STORY led students, teachers, and guests in clapping along as song spilled across the campus grounds. Following the choir performance, Matt Buchanan helped students with a special presentation of gifts. Keeping with the theme of tradition and highlighting the personal, experiential, and global experiences that Maumee Valley offers, students presented Lynn with gifts unique to these capstones.

As an encapsulation of the personal attention Maumee Valley teachers have shown them, the Upper School students presented Lynn with a collection of their written reflections. Students captured what they love most about their school on individual pages and inserted them into a custom leather journal. As freshman Mia Westfere stated in the journal, “My favorite aspect of Maumee Valley is the sense of community. We have a common love of learning, a common respect and admiration for the teachers, and a strong sense of tradition.” To visually showcase the many experiential opportunities that students are given, the Middle School students gifted Lynn with large hand painted letters. Upon the letters, students captured memorable experiential moments through phrases, collected and scribed by the students to complete the collection of letters that spelled out M-V-C-D-S. And, in celebration of the many differences in the Maumee Valley community, the Early Learning Center and Lower School students created a collage made up of each student’s silhouette self-portrait. The students welcomed Lynn with their gifts and expressed their excitement to have her as the new Head of School and as a new member of the diverse and global community of Maumee Valley.

After an energy filled procession by the preschool students, Matt quoted Lynn’s longtime mentor Melinda Bihn, Head of School at the French American International School in San Francisco, CA, as saying, “It is a true pleasure and honor to congratulate Lynn on her appointment to the headship, and to salute Maumee Valley Country Day School for your choice of such a gracious, gifted head of school. Lynn is a natural leader: her quiet grace and keen intellect distinguish her in every setting. She is generous with others and demanding of herself, as the best leaders are. She is smart and creative, and she is possessed of an incisive wit that allows her to delight in human nature. At heart an artist, Lynn knows that students learn best by doing and that a powerful experience can shape a child’s life. Open to the world and a veteran teacher of international as well as American curricula, Lynn understands the power of place and the importance of community. I am not surprised that she chose to return to her home state of Ohio to enter the headship, and I know that she will bring a broad experience of independent and international education to her leadership at MVCDS. How wise you are to have chosen 27


THE FEATURE STORY Lynn, who can listen and lead, who practices empathy and possesses vision, and who combines insight and intellect in all she does. I am proud to count her a colleague and a friend, and I know that she will lead Maumee Valley to exciting new achievements.”

After much anticipation, Matt Buchanan enthusiastically introduced Lynn as the eleventh Head of School of Maumee Valley Country Day School and invited her to take the podium. With a gracious nature, Lynn offered many thanks for all of the support given to her through the interviewing process, with a special thanks to Ann Stranahan. “It means a great deal to me to share this stage with Ann Stranahan. I had the pleasure of meeting Ann in my interview process. As we concluded our time together, Ann pointedly asked me, ‘Lynn, what will you do if you don’t get this job?’ And while I don’t remember exactly the words I stumbled over, the gist of my response was that I would look for the next best Maumee Valley, because I was looking for the right fit for me and my family, not just for any school,” Lynn explained.

Echoing Ann’s message, Lynn reinforced that “Maumee Valley is known for innovation. We strive to be the leaders in education. We are known for our progressive spirit, and our mission and vision are firmly rooted in the sound educational pedagogy of American educational reformer, John Dewey.” Lynn quoted Dewey as reminding us to “give the pupils something to do, not something to learn; and when the doing is of such a nature as to demand thinking; learning naturally results.”

As she drew numerous connections to earlier days in the school’s history and the many traditions that we still keep today, Lynn concluded the joyous ceremony by saying “Our students, my 572 new children, are creative and critical thinkers, collaborators, and scholars. Maumee Valley will continue to affect change in education by honoring our past and focusing on those we serve…While I cannot predict what challenges we will face nor the opportunities we will seize, know that I go forth with an unbridled love of this place, of the faculty and staff who deliver our mission, and with a genuine admiration for the students who comprise our school and our future.”

Stephen had a large role in bringing the “Toxic Puzzle” film screening to the Toledo Museum of Art’s Peristyle Theater this fall, followed by a Q&A with Dr. Paul Cox (a TIME Magazine “Hero Of Medicine”), and film director Bo Landin. The “Toxic Puzzle” chronicles the research being done by a group of scientists led by Paul Alan Cox, Ph.D., Executive Director, Ethnobotany and Drug Discovery, at Brain Chemistry Labs (www.brainchemistrylabs.org), a non-profit Research Institute for EthnoMedicine in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Paul and his team have identified a link between cyanobacteria present in blue-green algae, and so-called tangle diseases—ALS, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s—and have identified a substance that may block the contraction and progression of these diseases. The film mentions Toledo and other communities bordering Lake Erie.

In an article featuring Natalie on Hobart Williams and Smith College website, titled “Peace Corps in Namibia for Booth ’18,” Natalie was quoted as saying: “I think the most valuable learning experiences happen when you’re outside of your comfort zone and I can’t wait to embrace them . . . These opportunities have shown me I have a love for education in and outside of the classroom. I will now get to celebrate and share this love of education in the Peace Corps.” Following her Peace Corps service, Booth plans to pursue graduate school and continue a career in education.

THE ALUMNI COUNCIL PAGE Greetings Members of the Maumee Valley Community, It is a great pleasure to be your newly-elected President of the Alumni Council, especially in the midst of many new developments at the school. Of course, change is never easy, particularly when the outgoing Head of School has had such an impact on Maumee Valley, and one that will last for many years to come. But change is also a very good and welcome prospect. As a community, we get to rally around new ideas, new perspectives, and have the opportunity to productively examine our strengths and the areas in which we can all improve. On behalf of the alumni, I am excited to welcome two new important figures to Maumee Valley who will help us evaluate, re-evaluate, and forge a new path forward—Lynn Casto and Amy Hunt. As you have undoubtedly read in the preceding pages, these two leaders bring a wealth of experience and expertise in education and development that will serve our institution—and more importantly, our community—well into the future. As they cross the country to attend Maumee Valley alumni gatherings, and as you stop by the campus for a visit when passing through the region, be sure to introduce yourselves and give them your personal welcome. It has been a busy year already for the Alumni Council and we have launched some new and exciting initiatives on behalf of our amazing— and growing—alumni base. First, we brought back recent graduate college gift boxes which were packed and sent in November to our recent alumni graduates, including Chef Joe’s cookies, as a way to help them power through their first college final exam period and to not forget their first alma mater! Second, Alumni Council Vice President Jessie Bohl and I began an “Archival Task Force” that has continued to build on previous attempts to catalog old photos and documents and to create a finding aid so our community history is better preserved and accessible to all. We hope to launch an exhibition of these efforts, so stay tuned for news and updates. And third, we are beginning to develop a kind of lexicon of past and present Maumee Valley traditions, icons, campus features, and events that will benefit the entire community, from new parents to alumni grandparents. Some of you may remember the ABCD-arium of years past, and this will be a new and reinvigorated version of that wonderful document. I predict you will see many changes to the school and the campus in the coming years as Maumee Valley responds to the challenges and the excitement of the contemporary global condition. But with new ventures underway, we the members of the Alumni Council also understand that history—our collective past—is an incredibly rich and important part of the future. Whether you live down the street or on the other side of the globe, you are an integral part of the Maumee Valley community. We look forward to having you join us as we rediscover what the past has meant around campus, and what the future has yet to offer each of us. All the very best for 2019,

Joss Kiely ‘01 President, Maumee Valley Alumni Council, 2018-20

ANNUAL REPORT 2018 Dear Friends of Maumee Valley, The 2017-18 academic year brought forth many accomplishments, experiences, and curricular enhancements that added value to the lives of our students, as well as their educators who thoughtfully crafted lesson plans and memorable opportunities for learning. It concluded with Maumee Valley honoring Gary Boehm’s 12-year legacy as Head of School and preparing for a new leader. A synopsis of the year’s accomplishments included: • A waiting list of families wanting to join the Maumee Valley community. • An online student portfolio system implemented in the Early Learning Center to communicate with families, assess student achievement, and inform instruction. • The Lower School continues to differentiate and personalize language arts instruction through small group instruction and conferencing to ensure each student has a higher level of reading and writing proficiency. • The establishment of Lower School Family Groups, where older students mentor and lead younger peers in group discussions and activities to foster character development, care of the community, and interpersonal skills. • A strong Middle School program both inside and outside of the classroom where students leave the classroom to study water quality, conduct field research, and learn about the greater community through a variety of service learning experiences with organizations such as Swan Creek Retirement Home, Mosaic Neighborhood Revitalization Project, Toledo University Church Gardens, Food Bank of Northwest Ohio, Side Cut Metropark, and Food for Thought. • A tailored orientation and care program for ninth-grade students with thematic units designed to explore growth mindset, identity, and ethical decision making. • Expansive immersion and independent study experiences for Upper School students with nearly 200 students who “learned by doing” either on campus, or in places across the country such as Arizona, California, Florida, New York, and North Carolina, and across the globe to places such as China, Ecuador, France, India, and Singapore. Maumee Valley’s mission is to enable students to become enlightened, compassionate and contributing citizens of our global community while preparing graduates for their best opportunities in higher education. Each action of every student and teacher, and each dollar of support gifted through the generosity of parents, alumni, alumni parents, grandparents, foundations, and faculty and staff, contribute to fulfilling our mission. As you peruse The Valley, I hope you can see the cumulative impact of these actions and supportive efforts. On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I am personally grateful for all the ways this community rallies, bolsters, and remains committed to supporting an environment where intellectual curiosity is encouraged and students are given the opportunities to explore their interests. Together, we are, indeed, enabling our students to become enlightened and contributing citizens of our global community while preparing them for their best opportunities in higher education. With appreciation,

Matt Buchanan President, Board of Trustees, 2017-2019

HAWK hosts

Maumee Valley Admission and Advancement Offices are pleased to jointly present a new and exciting student program for high school students: HAWK Hosts. After an extensive interview process, 27 students ranging from 9th to 12th grades have been selected to serve as ambassadors for the 2018-2019 academic year. These students exhibit and develop the following characteristics: HOLISTIC - Students participate in a wide range of activities and programs and

display a unique set of interests and involvements that reflect the MVCDS mission.

ADVOCATES - Candidates have the desire to be advocates for Maumee Valley Country

Day School, and they are dedicated to furthering the betterment of the student experience by engaging various groups within our school community to achieve lifetime engagement.

KNOWLEDGE - Students have a working knowledge of Maumee Valley Country Day

School and confidently convey that knowledge to various groups within and outside of our school community at any time. This knowledge includes developing an understanding of school history, educational programs, budgetary items, athletics, admission, operational advancement, and future school initiatives. This prestigious program was created to meet the need for student ambassadors while simultaneously meeting the need for students to serve as liaisons to the Advancement Office. While playing the role of “host” for Open House days, student visits, and on and off campus events, HAWK Host students have the unique opportunity to participate alongside campus partners and fellow staff members to create and sustain a culture of philanthropy at Maumee Valley. These additional opportunities will be tailored to both the skills and interests of each HAWK Host. Some of our students may assist in the planning, communication, and execution of school events such as the Alumni Smead Luncheon, Get Back Give Back Day, and Reunion Weekend. Students will also partner with staff members to meet directly with supporters of the school, sharing their own Maumee Valley stories and cultivating relationships in the community. HAWK Hosts will be involved in developing our alumni Connector Program, working to partner current students with our network of alumni for intensive study opportunities, internships, speaking events, reunions, and other school events. HAWK Hosts will not only have the opportunity to serve and give back to their school, but they will also become student leaders, develop meaningful relationships with alumni, parents, and other community members, and gain a working understanding of Maumee Valley.
