A Perspective From 1950 “Thanks to all—past and present—who have contributed so generously to our school. Schools function best when everyone believes in and supports the mission, the program and the people.” In anticipation of North Shore’s Centennial, we have spent time during the last several years reaching out to alumni, former faculty and former parents to gather memories of their North Shore experiences. Our Alumni Oªce has led this initiative with interviews conducted by History Teacher and Department Head Frank Dachille and former History Teacher and Department Head Kevin Randolph. The resulting conversations have been very meaningful and compelling as individuals relate how North Shore impacted their lives. Just last week, Frank received a letter from Deirdre Du¤ Kildow, (daughter of former North Shore Music Teacher Ramsay Du¤ ), member of the Class of 1950. The letter detailed her North Shore experience beginning in kindergarten with her teacher, Mrs. Robinson, all the way through high school. She highlighted the particularly powerful support and one-on-one instruction she received from her teachers, with particular focus on Miss Lennards.

As I read and reread the correspondence, I was struck by a number of things: first, just how meaningful the impact of the entire school community was on Deirdre’s (and others’) individual growth and development. “It takes a village …” is a phrase that many argue has been overused in recent years, but when one examines an individual’s North Shore experience, it is clear the entire community’s full engagement has always delivered great value for all of our students. Secondly, the powerful impact that a single individual teacher can have on a student’s growth is reinforced. Thankfully, North Shore has always had a large number of teachers who have been in place to care, make connections and give of themselves in meaningful ways. Generations of North Shore students—and parents and teachers—have benefitted. Finally, Deirdre’s response to the question of what three words best describe North Shore—“challenging, well-rounded and opportunities”—is as relevant in 2015 as it was when she attended the School. As a person who has great respect for

North Shore’s remarkable heritage, and as an experienced teacher who knows very clearly that openness to change is a characteristic of the very best schools, I am reassured that North Shore seems to have always found the right balance. Visiting campus today, touring our renovated buildings, observing how technology impacts teaching and learning, and seeing the growth in our overall program, one might conclude North Shore is a di¤erent school than it once was. Yet, when one looks more closely, one will quickly conclude the opposite is true— our program and our students’ experience remain “challenging, well-rounded and full of opportunities.” Thanks to all—past and present— who have contributed so generously to our school. Schools function best when everyone believes in and supports the mission, the program and the people. What follows in the Annual Report feature is evidence that many believe in what we do at North Shore.

“In preparation for this essay, I have found solace in that—above all else—the Class of 2015 represents evolution. A month or so ago, an alumnus from the Class of 1987 came to speak for Morning Ex. When asked for her advice, she insisted we seize every opportunity North Shore has to o¤er, commenting that the North Shore of now ‘isn’t your North Shore of 1987.’ “She’s 110% correct not just because these buildings are new. The fact is, North Shore’s culture is changing, in large part because the people who attend it are changing. I’ve not been shy in my opinion regarding the 55 people behind me: We are, in the context of North Shore, historic. Historic in academics, historic in athletics, historic in timing, but—more so— historic in the sense that we are just a di¤erent type of person. “And, in the same way tonight is solely the beginning of our further evolution as individuals, so too is this the beginning of the further evolution of North Shore Country Day School. When this ceremony closes, and we walk away with our diplomas, both the individuals that comprise

the class of 2015 and North Shore Country Day School itself will continue their quest to evolve and reach new heights, and neither party will stop for anyone. “I love that. ‘Shoot for the moon,’ my mom tells my sisters and me, “Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.” This attitude rings true tonight for both this class and for North Shore, because our recent accomplishments were accompanied by incredible transformation; and the only way to achieve further is to again welcome development as individuals and as an institution. We must move on, North Shore must move on, and that’s the way it has to be. So, while the dispersion and change can be scary, it’s welcome; change was necessary to reach this point. “But, in our pursuit of bigger things— as students, as citizens, and as a school— I ask of North Shore Country Day and the Class of 2015 one thing: Shoot for the moon—beyond the moon if you can— but please, always hold on to what has made these past four years so special.”

“When I was first asked to give this speech, I had a brilliant idea. I was going to ask the seniors what I should say and then turn their pieces of advice into my speech. Nearly every single student gave me the same advice; you said, “Ms. Gi¤en, just be yourself; you’ll be great.” And then the advice hit me: one, you gave me permission to not wear a dress today and two, your words mirrored my core life in teaching… “To me, high school is about learning how to become comfortable being yourself. It isn’t about getting an A in physics or memorizing dates for history class. It is about figuring out who you are and then it is a place that will question who you are and push you to stick to who you are in a variety of trying circumstances. “Over my three years here, a span of time that mirrors the heart of your high school careers, I have had a front-row seat watching each and every one of you work to articulate who you are. And in your own time, you have each found those nuggets, those pieces that are of utmost importance to you and you have worked to nurture them. Then, I listened as you shared these pieces of yourself with me and watched as you shared these pieces with the greater community (in classes, in community gathering)…and then, I watched proudly as you grew into who you are now and you shared these identities with the world. I have watched you

grow and unfold before my eyes, and it is the best part of this job to watch this change. So, it is fitting that your piece of advice to me, to be myself, was the same message that I want to pass on you. To be successful and in your words, “to be great,” be yourself . You are accomplished students, scientists, poets, athletes and musicians. Each of you is strong, proud and unique. And astute—you told me, in a moment that would be scary, nerve-racking and important, that I just needed to be myself to be successful. And my message to you is the same— ‘just be yourself; you’ll be great.’ “Class of 2015— you are ready . You don’t get told this enough. you are ready . Get excited; go out and take the world by storm. Yes, you have to own it , you have to own up to the choices that you make…believe in who you are, be yourself and you will be successful. You’re ready and everyone here, in this room, supporting you, is excited about the prospect. We can’t wait to see what you will accomplish.”

“I decided a few weeks ago to reach out to some of my colleagues and get their sense of this group—the Class of 2015. The feedback that I received was, I think, on the mark. “This group has writers, scientists, athletes, mathematicians, multiple language learners and “livers and servers.” Not just good, but really good writers, scientists, athletes, mathematicians, multiple language learners and “livers and servers.” In fact there are those that have reached a level of accomplishment in areas that we have rarely seen. “Beyond being very good in a specific area these individuals do it with very little grandstanding, very little fanfare. “The class saw things that could be improved or changed and then worked to make a positive di¤erence. This group took their role as school leaders seriously; they worked with purpose and a clear focus to move the school forward. “They provided value to North Shore— value that wasn’t limited to a select few, but focused for the benefit of all. This class understood the benefits of team and of the importance of a team culture. They seemed to understand process and believe in process. As a group they have set us up to move forward and be a better place. “Finally, this class has individuals who engage in the world around them and excel in very specific areas—Yet while they excel—they don’t limit themselves to just do the things that they excel in. They are an academically accomplished class—yet think and focus on much more than their academic work. “All in all a special group—a class we like very much and will genuinely miss. “A favorite time for me each year is the graduation rehearsal. Certainly, it is a favorite time because it signals that the close of the school year is very close— just a day away. But more than the anticipation of the end of the school year,

it is my chance to observe the class as a group and see them interact with their teachers and one another as we “practice” for graduation. What is so compelling about 56 seniors practicing walking down the aisle or sitting in a chair you ask? Well, that’s easy—for it is at this rehearsal that I see our students, in many respects, for who they are, I get a sense of their feelings for one another, their comfort with one another, their respect for individual di¤erences—in fact, I see that they understand and accept their di¤erences. They are all unique individuals—who together have formed a unique group. “I did see something yesterday that I am going to ask you to look for today. As the students march out, filing down the stairs on my left and right, they have been asked to pause at the aisle, look over and make eye contact with their classmate in the other aisle and then make their way out together—at the same pace. What I found so fascinating yesterday—and what gave me an “inner light” feeling, was observing the looks on their faces as they made eye contact with one another to make sure they were together. The looks were more than just looks—there were smiles, smirks, nods, even a small motion or wave. To me the connections that were made with each pair were more than simply a message to move up the aisle together. Instead there were connections— real connections, each senior seemed more concerned about the person opposite them than they were about themselves, each had gotten beyond themselves, each connected with the other in their own personal way. “As they process out today—look for it. Our graduates focusing on someone else, rather than themselves.” Scan the QR code or use the following link to read each Commencement speech in its entirety. https://nscds.myschoolapp.com/ ftpimages/138/download/ download_1593204 .pdf https://goo.gl/U5 rc CG

The Essence of

LEADERSHIP G E O R G E S M I T H ’81

“North Shore Country Day School, Wesleyan University and the Episcopal Church. Those are three key pieces—important anchors— of who I am. They are the themes for my life,” says George Smith ’81. With his calm nature, soft voice and engaging smile, talking with George is easy and comfortable. After hearing his life story, you know that he is also very smart, creative, driven, caring, resilient and passionate.

North Shore George spent 14 years at North Shore, graduated as a lifer in the Class of 1981 and considers the School to be a very formative part of his life. “Perry Dunlap Smith imprinted the ethos and dna on North Shore that is still present today, and that a¤ected me. The idea that kindness and service matter in the context of a diverse community—diverse not in just race, but also in age with students jk–12. I love the interaction of di¤erent age groups because our society is not structured that way. As a kindergartener, I sat on the lap of a senior, and as a senior I had a kindergartener sitting on my lap. That is very meaningful and a sign of the School’s commitment to being an inclusive community for multiple ages.”

George participated in athletics— football with Mac McCarty and Jay Bach— and theater, appearing as Lord Chancellor in Gilbert and Sullivan’s Iolanthe. Those experiences on stage helped him overcome stage fright and gave him the confidence to talk in front of people. “The range of opportunities—sports, theater, Morning Ex and taking ap classes—all prepared me for my life. I also appreciate North Shore’s emphasis on writing. I write a lot. Email, sermons—there are more ways to communicate than ever, and the School prepared me with a solid base.”

After Kellogg, he took a position with McMaster-Carr Supply Company, a Chicago-based industrial distribution company. Here, George managed a marketing team and later warehouse operations. During the tech boom in 1996, he started working for Peapod. Peapod was at the forefront of online grocery ordering and George worked on the distribution side. The company went public in 1997 and he left in 1998.

Episcopal Church

At this point, George started wrestling with what he wanted to do next. “I had two ideas: start my own business or Following North Shore, George attended go to seminary. I grew up going to the Wesleyan and majored in economics. After graduation, he traveled to Finland for Episcopal Church in Winnetka and it a year because of the country’s interesting had been a meaningful part of my life— especially during crisis. My mother died history in economics and interest in his my freshman year at North Shore and mother’s Finnish heritage. then my father in 1986.

He was ordained an Episcopal in 1992 with an mba . priest in 2003. Coincidentally, he became a curate then assistant rector at Christ Church in Winnetka where his family had worshiped.

However, Spanish is only one of many languages there. “We didn’t want two churches—a Spanish one and an English one. Our ethos is many languages, one church.”

St. Mark’s

Skillfully, George has developed St. Mark’s into a church that is a resource for the community 7 days a week, and he has become fluent in Spanish. “Our focus is Sunday and every day. Boy Scouts, a dance group, support groups, recitals, concerts, parties. We focus on o¤erings for young children birth–6 years old and started a preschool based on the Reggio Emilia School in Italy. It’s an approach to early childhood education tied with the Episcopal Church. We also have a Parents’ Day Out program for children ages 2, 3 and 4, and Sunday school. Those are appealing to families with young children. “This approach is by design and rooted in welcome. This is our focus. At St. Mark’s we have diversity of ages and culture—just as it was embedded in North Shore. “My work is fun and every day is about the unknown,” George adds with a smile. “Questions, issues, people’s lives—it’s a journey every day. The essence of leadership is being prepared, having curiosity, and solving problems all the time.” Any free time that George has is devoted to his family. Married for 24 years to his wife Cecilia, they have three children. Lydia is a graduate of Rice University, Frances attends the University of Wisconsin and Geo is a senior at Glenbard West. George also enjoys running and has completed approximately 15 marathons.

G I V E A N N U A L L Y, I M PAC T DA I LY The impact of Annual Giving is seen daily through curriculum development, Morning Ex programming, global studies, field trips, faculty enrichment, scholarships, technology, athletics, arts, service-learning opportunities, small class sizes, buddy programs and much more. Annual Giving is a top priority and helps make up the di¤erence between what tuition covers and the cost to educate each student. All in the North Shore community are asked to participate and all students and teachers benefit. We greatly appreciate your support—it is critical to preserving the values and traditions of a North Shore education and enhancing these experiences for students today.

Thank You from the Board of Trustees

Board Chair Jim Lumberg and Hannah Lumberg ’15 — Commencement

Thank you for your generosity and commitment to help position our students to experience all that is North Shore.” J I M L U M B E R G · Board of Trustees Chair

Development Chair Fritz Souder and Hattie Souder ’2 2 — Lower School Closing

“Volunteers are the foundation of a robust Annual Giving program. Their outreach to parents, alumni, faculty and staff is significant in raising more than $ 1,000,000 a year for North Shore. We simply could not do this without their enthusiastic commitment and we thank them.” F R I T Z S O U D E R · Development Chair

ANNUAL GIVING:

benefit board

T O P R O W Erica Conlon, Sarah Geist Rosen ’86

Senior auction volunteers

B O T T O M R O W Lauren Hines, Gretchen Ake

The Benefit Board “The Purple Wave” annual Auction and Party, held on April 18, raised $155,000 for the School. The Arts Center was transformed into a Southern California beach theme with food from Bergho¤ Catering. Live and silent auctions featured a variety of items from signed Blackhawks jerseys and luxury vacations, to local spa and restaurant gift certificates, faculty o¤erings and signed student class photos. As part of a North Shore tradition, members of the senior class assisted with acting out many of the auction items on stage in the newly renovated Auditorium. Over $107,000 was raised from the emotional appeal, exceeding all expectations. The funds will be used to launch a three-year phased program refining and revamping the School’s foodservice operation and establishing a comprehensive jk–12 food-education program. The event brought the North Shore community—parents, former parents, trustees, alumni, faculty, sta¤ and friends—together to connect, socialize and have fun celebrating the School. Since 1981, the Benefit Board, formerly the Woman’s Board, has raised more than $5 million through their annual auction to support areas of the School not covered by the annual operating budget. The North Shore community greatly appreciates the Benefit Board members for their continued commitment to students and faculty.

“I give because, over time, I have a greater appreciation for the incredible number of opportunities that NSCDS offered me when I was a student and the effort to involve me in the “life of the School” since I graduated. While I enjoyed my experiences in college and graduate school, I have come to really value my time at North Shore more and more. I feel like I am part of the NSCDS community and try to volunteer whatever time I have and donate to Annual Giving as a way of saying thanks.” D AV I D B R O W N ’84

“I see the impact of Annual Giving in our signature programs such as the Senior Service project. It’s rewarding to see the growth of the students culminate in a meaningful experience they share with each other and the community. I am thrilled to be part of the 100% Annual Giving Faculty and Staff participation. It demonstrates our support of students and our commitment to the School. It also sends a positive message to other donors who value strong faculty and staff support.” CASSANDRA HILAND

ac a demics Arpilleras Gallery The Spanish level 5 Special Topics class led by Spanish Teacher María Centomo concluded its unit on military dictatorships in Chile and Argentina with a final project of arpilleras—patchwork quilts made of burlap. The gallery on the second floor of the Upper School demonstrated the history of military dictatorships in Latin American countries. The class used these arpilleras to communicate what they learned and wrote the following artist statement. “This unit had a tremendous impact on all of us, and we truly wanted to express the ideas of the disappeared, justice, the unknown, identity and hope through art. We believe that it is necessary to shed light upon the horrible and tragic events that took place in order to prevent another atrocity like this from happening again.” Students researched the rights of children of desaparecidos, Pinochet’s Regime in Chile and the women who created arpilleras to rewrite the past.

Over The Rainbow

Identity Projects

In the fall of 2013, North Shore’s Lower School implemented a collaborative project curriculum involving many subject areas, including design with 3d software and printers. This year, the 5th grade class took this curriculum a step further by collaborating with the Over The Rainbow Association (otr) in Evanston to design and 3d-print objects of use to people with physical disabilities. Over The Rainbow provides independent housing for people who have physical disabilities that make daily living significantly more diªcult. Many otr residents are in wheelchairs and some use Dynavox devices to assist in speaking. The North Shore students wanted to create useful items for the otr residents. First, students met the residents at their otr apartments. After learning about the 3d printing process in school, the students explained the process to residents—the material is melted in a machine and then laid in thin layers according to a design until it forms Advanced Open Research the final product.

Together, they designed a cup-like container with separate chambers to hold di¤erent utensils so she would not have to open her drawer.

Over the years, North Shore’s 8th graders have completed an Identity Project and Exhibition that is a culminating experience, investigation, artwork and celebration. This year, students worked independently, on their own time, in their own way, under the guidance and support of Middle School Visual Arts Teacher Keith Sklar, and substitute Art Teacher Jen Schmidt. The project serves as a visual expression of how each student sees him- or herself at this moment of transition from middle to high school. Students were asked to journey through a process of self-reflection at this milestone between childhood and emerging young adulthood. The artwork involved research and experimentation in diverse media, forms and techniques. The curriculum included lessons in contemporary, modern and classical art history, composition, mixed-media sculpture, Photoshop, digital filmmaking, painting, drawing and architectural design.

Foodservice Renovation Begins

Pianist and composer Andrew Guo performed for the 2015 Susan Marshall ’76 Memorial Concert on May 14, performing at Morning Ex and visiting with students. This annual concert series was established by Susan’s parents, Irl and Barbara Favill Marshall ’46, in 1983 in memory of Susan and her lifelong love of music. Susan’s brother Bucky ’71, sister-in-law Tracy, and sister Alice Marshall Vogler ’69 also attended the concert and shadowed the classroom visits. Sixteen-year-old Andrew Guo is the Alexandra C. and John D. Nichols Fellow Laureate at the Music Institute of Chicago Academy, a training center for gifted pre-college musicians. Andrew currently studies piano with artist faculty member and Northwestern University professor Dr. Alan Chow and advanced composition with Dr. Matthew Hagle. He began his music education at the Music Institute of Chicago in 2003, and for many years studied with legendary teacher Emilio del Rosario. Andrew connected with students of all ages from Lower School to Upper School, sharing his talents and listening as one 4th grade student played the piano and the Upper School Chorus sang for him.

Just days following the close of school for 2014–2015, construction crews began working in the cafeteria, kitchen and serving areas. The project is the first phase of a new foodservice and food-education program set to launch in 2015–2016. (Watch for a feature story in the Fall/Winter Acorn 2016.) Thanks to an incredibly successful emotional appeal held during the Benefit Board’s annual Auction and party, “The Purple Wave—2015,” more than $101,000 was raised for the remodeling project. Among the features of the newly-designed space will be a more wide-open serving area and redesigned cashier system, and new kitchen equipment including ovens for freshly baked small items onsite. In addition, the cafeteria will be open all day for beverages and healthy snacks.

When reading Bunnicula the Vampire Rabbit, she had children bring pillows and flashlights—scary reading!! “Thank you, Emily, for always finding great books for children and books that enhanced the curriculum and the students’ understanding of different worlds.”

pam whalley · Head of Lower School and parent of Ned ’04 and Nick ’03 “Over the past few weeks, the students put together a book for Emily, sharing memories of her. In reading over their writing, it was clear to see the difference that Emily has made in so many lives. Some of my favorite entries included, ‘I will always remember how you explained things in a different understanding way.’ ‘I will always remember how you complimented my work.’ And ‘I will always remember how in third grade you hugged me when I was sad.’ Emily, you are an inspiration to me and so many others—of course as a teacher, but also as a friend. We are going to miss you so much next year.”

Barnswallow Bake Sale The 2nd grade class held its annual bake sale to benefit Barnswallow, a bird rehabilitation center created by North Shore alum Linda Breuer ’69. The students studied various animal groups this year, which fueled their passion to help injured and endangered animals. The proceeds, which totaled $1,530, will go toward caring for the birds at the rehabilitation facility. This year, the class also raºed o¤ two spots on the “Duckling Crew” to Lower School students, to help guide a mother duck and her ducklings through the School from the Eldredge Patio. Every year the duck lays and hatches her eggs in the patio and faculty and students help direct the mother and babies through the halls and outside.

Thanksgiving in April Food Drive The Upper School Community Service Club collected more than 65 boxes of food items for its annual Thanksgiving in April Food Drive, benefiting the Northfield Township Food Pantry. The collection took place from April 7–23. Students began the drive three years ago as a response to the low number of donations food pantries receive in the spring. All three divisions participated this year and collected more food than the last few years.

North Shore Country Day School partnered with St. James the Less Episcopal Church in Northfield for the second year to work on its community garden. The garden maintains several plots where the church grows produce to donate to the Northfield Township Food Pantry. In May, faculty, sta¤, students and alumni worked to weed, compost and prepare the plots for gardening.

Little Free Library During Spring Break, a new Little Free Library was installed on campus near the front circle lot. The library is intended to serve everyone—students, families, faculty/sta¤, alumni, neighbors and friends. All are encouraged to stop by and “Take-A-Book, Leave-A-Book.” Anyone can add books to the little house or drop them o¤ at Upper School reception. Little Free Library is a nonprofit that began in 2009. Today there are over 25,000 Little Free Libraries around the world.

Every shirt sold purchased one soccer ball. These special soccer balls are virtually indestructible and can be used in rough environments, like refugee camps.

Senior Service Projects The final graduation requirement for North Shore’s seniors is to participate in a Senior Service Project—one last opportunity for students to truly “Live and Serve.” This year, from May 18 to 29, each senior dedicated 60 hours (or more) volunteering for an organization of their choosing. Prior to working on the projects, students wrote extensive research papers, allowing them to understand the issues their sites face. The projects concluded with a final written reflection, presentation and celebration evening, attended by the students, their parents and their site supervisors. This year, service project sites included El Roblar School in Nicaragua, paws Chicago, Wagner Farms in Glenview, the Evanston/North Shore ywca “Race Against Hate,” the Holocaust Museum in Skokie, the Northwestern University Settlement House, learn Charter School and Connections for the Homeless in Evanston.

Home Schooled The Middle School performed this play by Jason Pizzarello. When the town of Smorgasbord blows their entire budget on a Cheese Festival, they’re forced to close the public school system and rely on a motley crew of parents to homeschool all the children. Realizing that none of them are remotely qualified to teach a full course load, the parents decide to divide and conquer the subjects, resulting in a lecture on eighteenth-century European society delivered by a clown, a drill sergeant baking pies in home economics, and a lady who’s had way, way too much caffeine zooming through 200 years of US History.

Girls’ Soccer Coming o¤ a strong season in 2014, the team was poised to build on that foundation in the 2015 season. Led by three captains, Kayla Robinson ’15, Debbie Newmark ’15 and Annie Kroll ’15, the team compiled a 9–5–0 record, finishing with a tie for second in the isl and scoring a total of 70 goals in the season. The highlight of the regular season was a win over league rival Francis W. Parker School. This game was truly a battle, and the Raiders were able to pull o¤ a 5–3 win and beat Parker for the first time in years. The Raiders went on to win the Regional Title for the first time since 2011 by beating Ida Crown and Chicago Math and Science Academy. The Raiders then faced St. Ed’s in the Sectional Semi-Final. After tying the game with 10 minutes left in regulation time, the teams played 20 minutes of overtime and went to a penalty kick shootout. It took seven penalty kicks for each side before a winner was determined, and ultimately the Raiders ended the season that day by playing in one of the most exciting girls’ soccer games in North Shore history.

They had a team on-base percentage of .388, averaged 5.89 runs per game and stole 114 bases on the year, led by Sam Kayser ’15 with 17 sb.
