W Dear Friends,
e live in an age of individual, often conflicting “truths.” If you flipped through any cable news shows this summer, you know what I mean. Happily, there are still things that are really true, and on which we agree. This summer our communications staff asked several students, parents, teachers, and alumni: “What’s most special about St. Andrew’s?” It’s a broad question that at some schools would elicit disparate answers. At St. Andrew’s, it elicited one common theme: teacher-student relationships. Whether you’re a newcomer to St. Andrew’s, a veteran parent, an alumnus/a, or friend, I’m sure that the stories in here will resonate with you, as they do for me. I’m sure that you have similar stories, as I do as a St. Andrew’s parent and head of school. Our teachers—and the culture of learning and joy they create— seem magical. It’s not magic, however; it’s science. At St. Andrew’s we ask every teaching candidate: “Why do you want to work here?” Those we eventually hire answer: “Because I love being with students.” Now here’s the key: That new teacher who loves working with students joins a community of educators who share the same belief and commitment. The result is an immensely powerful, durable, and energetic faculty culture, thanks to the “multiplier effect” of common purpose: Do what’s best for students, do it even better the next day, and support your colleagues in their efforts to do the same. It’s a virtuous cycle, fueled by strong professional development and real human connection.
Whenever I interview candidates after a day on campus, or talk with prospective families after a tour, I hear one common line: “Students and teachers seem really happy here.” A simple truth, a consistent culture, that makes St. Andrew’s special.
Whether you’re a newcomer to St. Andrew’s, a veteran parent, an alumnus/a, or friend, I’m sure that the stories in here will resonate with you, as they do for me. I’m sure that you have similar stories, as I do as a St. Andrew’s parent and head of school. Our teachers— and the culture of learning and joy they create—seem magical. I begin my twelfth year at St. Andrew’s with tremendous excitement. Our campus renovations, expanded 1:1 laptop program, and burgeoning reputation as national leaders in research-based teaching excellence speak to our school’s strength and commitment to developing each student’s potential. Thanks to your steadfast support, St. Andrew’s is filled with promise and
joy and powerful teachers and learners. Thank you for making our distinctive strengths possible. Faithfully,
Robert Kosasky Head of School

Cum Laude Society Inducts Thirteen Students
hirteen students were inducted into the St. Andrew’s chapter of the Cum Laude Society this past April in a ceremony attended by the entire student body as well as the honorees’ parents. Seniors Sutanu Biswas, Rebekah Daniels, Julia Grace, Simon Lewis, Britta Loftus, Harrison Nealley, and Samantha Spaccasi were joined by juniors Catherine Ahmad, Brian Bies, Aidan Herderschee, Layla Najjar, Izzy Schellenger and Aaron Sibarium in being inducted into the honorary group. The new inductees were welcomed into the Society by last year’s honorees Emma Davey, Isabelle Delcea, Allison Donahoe, Matt Petraites, Lucas Schmidt, Kaitlin Smith, and Alexa Tsintolas as well as Cum Laude faculty members. Upon induction, the newest members were given the charge by Headmaster Robert Kosasky to strive to make “some contribution to a greater understanding of our society and ourselves” as they continue to pursue academic excellence in the years to come as well as honor the Cum Laude Society’s three core principles of Honor, Excellence, and Justice. St. Andrew’s English teacher Evan Brooke gave the keynote address to the assembled audience. Brooke, who teaches 10th grade English, Creative Writing, and a 12th grade Critical Literacy course, noted that the Cum Laude society was an exclusive group, its existence “promotes the importance of searching for a “greater understanding of the world in which we live.” Member or non-member, insider or outsider, we can all do that. We all should do that.”
to become a member “ofStriving a group can motivate you to improve yourself or to achieve things you didn’t think possible. Yet what you shouldn’t do is get so caught up in the race to join a group that you forget why you wanted it in the first place. Alternatively, once you’re in the group it’s easy to lose perspective, to lose that perch, that view, you were afforded outside of that group. That’s the space where we really find meaning.

Eighth Graders Spend the Day in Court
Lower School Parent Education Night Highlights Everyday Math Program
his past February, members of the eighth-grade class spent a fascinating day at the Montgomery County Courthouse, the seat of the county judicial system. Led by English teachers Samantha Speier and Kristin Cuddihy, and hosted by SAES dad and State’s Attorney Mr. Robert Hill, the class spent the morning visiting with lawyers, judges, K-9 unit officers and homicide detectives. The class’s first meeting of the day was a lively session in the courtroom, presided over by the Honorable Michael Algeo, Circuit Court Judge. Judge Algeo described a typical day in the courtroom, including a tour of his chambers and a demonstration of his several gavels. In the next courtroom, students were introduced to Officer Magruder and his K-9 companion, Riddick, an 8-year old German Shepherd. A live polygraph demonstration put Mrs. Cuddihy in the hot seat as she was interrogated in front of the class, while they watched her polygraph data on the big screen. A visit from State’s Attorney John McCarthy fascinated students with his tales of solving crime and serving justice with the help of modern science. Students were also introduced to Judge Karla Smith, who discussed the road to becoming a member of the legal community and her commitment to helping children and families in particular. Finally, State’s Attorney John Maloney tied the trip together with some courtroom drama, courtesy of film clips of the class’s current novel, To Kill A Mockingbird, as well as an updated dramatization of witness testimony and cross-examination. The eighth grade left the Judicial Center with a greater appreciation for our legal system and its tireless members, as well as plenty of new ways to connect their reading of Harper Lee’s classic novel to the world around them.

St. Andrew’s Community Prepared 20,000 Meals During National Day of Service
aturday, January 19 was the National Day of Service and as usual, the St. Andrew’s community came out in a big way. More than 225 students, teachers, administrators, parents and friends from all four divisions came to the Postoak Campus to produce 20,000 meals for South Africa and other areas of need in the world. Whether it was snacks for the homeless on the streets of Washington (0ver 200 snack bags produced), or bagged lunches for the hungry in Bethesda (200 produced), St. Andrew’s collective effort was inspiring. Art students produced bowls for St. Andrew’s first simple supper to support our work in Civol Haiti. Led by Tracey Goodrich, the artisans produced more than 100 bowls that were used to serve a meal produced by Campus Kitchen in February. Still other students sorted and organized boxes of clothes, toys and supplies for South Africa and Haiti. It is this diversity and plurality of passions that made Saturday shine through the work of more than 275 individuals.

Head of School Robert Kosasky Receives Washington Post Educational Leadership Award

receive the honor. In total, 18 principals earned the award. “I am honored and humbled to receive this award,” Kosasky said. “It reflects most of all the dedication of our St. Andrew’s faculty and community to developing each child’s potential.” The winners were honored at a ceremony at The Post on
May 7. “The better the principal, the more creative and vital the teachers,” said Jay Mathews of The Washington Post in a column accompanying the awards announcement. “I can think of no head of an independent school who more richly deserves ’The Distinguished Educational Leadership’ award,” said Ron Goldblatt, Executive Director of the Association of Independent Maryland & DC Schools. “A
shining example to his peers, a successful, visionary leader who knows the difference between ill-considered change and thoughtful, measured school improvements, Robert Kosasky is truly worthy of the Distinguished Educational Leadership Award.” The Washington Post Distinguished Educational Leadership Award seeks to recognize those principals who go beyond the day-to-day demands of their position to create an exceptional educational environment.
Inaugural Winners of Derek Park Fund Grants Announced
t. Andrew’s Episcopal School’s Head of School Robert Kosasky announced the first-ever winners of the Derek Park Fund Grant for Creative Innovation on March 1, on what would have been the 16th birthday of the former student who died tragically on Nov. 26, 2011. Four awards were handed out in total, two to students and two to faculty. Allie Sklarew ’15 earned one student grant while Ethan Lockshin ’14 and Sean Hess ’14 shared the other. Troy Dahlke and Charles James were the faculty winners. Each individual grant is in the amount of $1,000. Derek Park was a student at St. Andrew’s from sixth grade through the end of the first trimester of his ninth-grade year when he died. At the time of his death, the Derek Park Fund was created to provide grants to students and faculty seeking creative innovation and personal development. Derek was a member of the Jazz Band (clarinet) and loved being out in nature playing, fishing, riding a bike or hiking. He was an imaginative and creative person who experimented freely with the physics in our world. Sklarew is using her grant in conjunction with Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. As a 2-year-old, Sklarew underwent a life-saving heart transplant at that hospital and she is currently an advocate for organ donation. She will use the money to buy art supplies for kids waiting in the hospital for transplants, to make crafts for the children, along with other SAES students, and she will donate a portion of the money toward research at the National Institutes of Health. Lockshin and Hess currently oversee Lion Laborers. A large group of SAES students, they get together on weekends to help

out the St. Andrew’s and Montgomery County community by doing odd jobs, such as leaf raking, tree trimming, office relocating, basement organizing, weeding, etc. They do the work for free and 100% of the donations they receive go to helping the Christ Roi school in Haiti, St. Andrew’s partner school. Lockshin and Hess will use their grant to buy lawn equipment such as rakes and leaf blowers, while also encouraging students at other schools to model Lion Laborers in their own community. Dahlke, a philosophy and religion teacher, will use the grant to explore the Boundary Waters Canoe Area along the Canadian border in Northern Minnesota and do some fly fishing in 2013. This will be done with the intent of returning in the summer of 2014 with a group of St. Andrew’s students to canoe, camp, fish, and read books designed to enhance and reflect on the experience. James, a science teacher, traveled to England in the summer of 2013 to study the Design Technology Curriculum used in their schools and work to apply those practices at St. Andrew’s. Using ideas generated from his research, he will work with another department at St. Andrew’s to create a design-based project or create a grade level design challenge for the freshmen or sophomore class.

Two Students Attend SDLC Founded by Middle School Head Rodney Glasgow
IS Tech Showcase
wo students from St. Andrew’s attended the Student Diversity Leadership Conference in Houston, this past December. Louay Youssef ’14 and Aidan Lucas ’16 represented the school at the conference and returned empowered to continue their diversity work.
Diversity Director Stacy Kincaid speaks highly of the two at-
tendees saying, “I chose the boys because of the passion and integrity they have both displayed around issues of difference.” While St. Andrew’s has been a part of this conference for many years, this year was especially noteworthy as the students witnessed Rodney Glasgow, Head of the Middle School, serve in his other capacity as co-founder of the conference. Hosted by the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), The Student Diversity Leadership Conference is a multiracial, multicultural gathering of upper school student leaders (grades 9–12) from around the country. Participants examine issues of social justice, develop effective cross-cultural communication skills, practice expression through the arts, and learn networking principles and strategies. The Student Diversity Leadership Conference encourages students to apply the leadership principles they develop within their own communities after the conference. This year will be the 20th anniversary of the first conference and it will be held in the Washington, D.C., area.
ast April, parents were invited to the Postoak Campus for the Intermediate School’s Technology Showcase. Parents were given a tour of Intermediate School classrooms, where students shared projects showing how technology helped their learning. After a successful pilot program in 201112 with the fifth grade, St. Andrew’s expanded the One-to-One Laptop Program to all of the Intermediate School (grades four through six) this past year. This year, the program extended to all of the Postoak Campus (grades four through 12). The one-to-one laptop initiative flows directly from the school’s mission and current strategic plan, as it supports innovative, student-centered learning. This piece of academic technology will open new avenues of learning for our students and facilitate 21st century skills such as collaboration, global awareness and connectivity.

very year, families that apply to St. Andrew’s are sent a survey, asking them lots of questions about their impressions of our school. It quickly became clear that prospective families were impressed with the relationships our teachers built with our students. We knew this was something we did well, but it’s always been in an unintentional, organic way. We decided to ask members of the

We asked a parent, a teacher, an alum and a student to share their SAES stories. When you’re done, we hope you’ll share your story with us as well. You can do so by e-mailing us at email@example.com.

was late for my first parentteacher conference at St. Andrew’s. Quite like other times I have to be at my children’s school, just because something ends up on my plate at the last minute. So I walked in apologizing for my tardiness, only to hear “Oh, it’s OK. The fact that you made it with your busy life schedule is all that matters.”
To me, those simple and plainly spoken words, meant a thousand more. The two teachers, waiting for me, at that little set of table and chairs in the Pre-K classroom, made me feel real, unjudged, cared for and understood. They graciously spoke the same language of love and understanding to my daughter, Teeda, in ways beyond my expectations. Welcome notes at the start of a new
school year, a postcard sent from Bannf National Park in Canada, hand written thank you notes for a specific drawing —these are just examples of how they made her feel loved. They were there to show my daughter that it was possible to navigate life without her immediate family being around, and they did it wonderfully! The teachers communicated openly about their observations, listened closely, and meticulously tailored the program to her needs; they would make sure that her hand was held for every unfamiliar adventure, her voice was heard, and her feelings validated. They would make sure that Teeda knew when and why the school bell was going to ring, where she was supposed to go when each period ended, who was going to take her to the next classroom, to recess, etc. They were kind, and most

And that is exactly why my husband and I decided to transfer our son, Neeve, from his school to St. Andrew’s. Neeve’s enthusiasm for life, happiness, and learning was noticed, his teamwork appraised, and weaknesses kindly pushed so he could reach a higher level. His fourth-grade homeroom teacher made sure that we were always in the loop, for any needed changes, modifications, newly-discovered strengths, or areas of challenge. Neeve never mentioned that he would like to go back to his previous school! St. Andrew’s inclusive philosophy, and the open communication by the teachers, in many ways, not only made it easier for my kids to navigate their way through the new environment, but also made it possible for us to find our voice in the new school’s community. So at the end of the year, while we were amazed at the elevated reading levels, art works, talent shows, sports achievements, and language skills, my husband and I were most grateful for advancements that are not scored on a report card: the ability to trust, love, and learn. A strong core of an inclusive academia is a fundamental rock at any

school. But in my opinion, St. Andrew’s ability to develop, enhance, and invest in personal characteristics, capabilities, and understanding of limitations, and how to reduce them, is what marks the school’s exceptional program. Exceptional can only be delivered when your children’s teachers go that extra distance to make the children believe that they are exceptional! That is a hallmark of SAES. Carl Jung might as well have been speaking about SAES when he so beautifully said “One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child.”

Relationships That Go Beyond the Classroom B y M i c h a e l Ch a p p e r
s a middle school teacher at St. Andrew’s, I’ve come to believe that the relationships between students and faculty are more important than academics. Before students can succeed, they need to know that teachers care about their tears, their efforts, their frustrations, and their challenges. They need to learn about time; that if teachers will give up their free time to help them work through difficulties it is worth their time as well. They have to feel a relationship. My experiences with several students last year demonstrate the value of relationships within academics. One student surprised me when he was about to leave my room crying. I kept him into his next class and discovered his tears resulted from feeling wronged by another student during a Civics simulation. The point of the simulation, learning about money in the newly independent United States, had been completely lost
because he could not get past the fact that he felt taken advantage of. It was difficult for me to try to validate his feelings, but that had to be done before the lesson could be learned. We talked for about fifteen minutes before he was able to settle down enough to go to his next class. Another student was distraught when I told him—backed by the website turnitin.com—that most of his paper had been directly copied from the internet. There was no arguing with that, but he was convinced that an F was in the offing. It took me a long time to get through to him that he would be given a second chance, an opportunity to use quotation marks and to learn to put others’ ideas into his own words. It was as if he did not believe me when I told him I was not even going to grade the first draft, but that only his new work would affect his grade. Twenty minutes of tears, apologies, and reassurances later, he was able to go to lunch. A third student came to see me during a break after a class in which he had shown up without his homework. He assured me that he had done it but that he couldn’t find it. I made a comment about his locker, which provoked him to say, in a despairing wail that cannot be captured in words, “the thing is, Mr. Chapper, my locker is such a mess I just can’t find anything!” At St. Andrew’s, that desperate cry is what we call self-advocacy and it signals a student who wants help to improve. That day after school, this student and I completely emptied his locker and his backpack. We threw away, we recycled, we organized, we designated pockets and hooks and shelves for certain purposes—in short, we created a system that
Relationships That Go Beyond the Classroom
Middle School kids have difficulty seeing the upside. They need our help to recognize their experiences for the growth opportunities that they are and to put disappointment into context. could lead to success in the future. Outside the classroom, the ways in which we connect with students help build trust and understanding which can be leveraged into other areas. One Middle School lacrosse player had seen slips in a couple of subjects from the B-range, leading his teachers to express concern in a meeting. One day after practice I held him back for a chat. With the sun on his face, his hair matted from sweating under a helmet, and the adrenaline from practice still in his veins, I discussed with him his goal of playing lacrosse in college. I impressed upon him that however good he was, and maybe especially if he were extremely talented, college head coaches’ first question would be about his grades: could he get into the school, stay academically eligible, and graduate? Academic habits need to be formed now, in Middle School, so that as early as 9th grade, GPA can be an asset, helping to keep options open rather than closing doors. All of these stories, on the surface, demonstrate a shortcoming, whether in conflict resolution, expressive language, materials management, or motivation. However, these challenges are par for the course in the St. Andrew’s Middle School, and probably any
FALL / A N N U AL
R e p o rt
Middle School. The unique thing is that here, all teachers understand that students are walking, breathing works in progress: I expect 7th-graders to have trouble relating to peers, especially as they are maturing at different rates; I expect 7th-graders grappling with difficult academic material to use others’ words; I expect 7th-graders to cultivate cluttered and chaotic lockers and backpacks; I expect 7th-graders to have trouble planning for events four to five years into the future. However, I also expect that they will bounce back and learn how to cope with adversity, learn the definition of plagiarism and practice new skills, reach out for advice on how to make behavioral and organizational changes, and internalize advice if repeated enough times. Failure, shortcomings, challenge—these are words that denote not the end of the world, but a beginning, an opportunity for growth. Middle School kids have difficulty seeing the upside. They have to explain low grades to parents; they stack themselves up against peers who, to their inexperienced eyes, seem to have things come comparatively easily. They need our help to recognize their experiences for the growth opportunities that they are and to put disappointment into context.
Furthermore, academic success is not the only goal. Improved grades, hopefully, are the byproduct of all of these episodes. Regardless, students are acquiring tools that will serve them throughout school and their entire lives. I don’t just mean building skills and gaining perspective, however. The relationships that teachers build by talking to their charges are themselves tools as well. The confidence and reassurance of an adult’s attention, time, and love should not be overlooked. Relationships become personal reasons to put forth effort in class and on the field; relationships spark visits in subsequent years when students become high schoolers or alumni. The better we know our students and the more our investment in them is visible to them, the more effective our teaching, coaching, and advising become. Middle School teaching is difficult partially because of these added angles. However, those aspects of the job are what unite my colleagues as we trade stories or collaborate on how to help a child. They are why St. Andrew’s teachers choose to teach.
A Lasting Friendship B y M o l ly K e l ly - Ya hn e r ’ 0 7
hen I think about a snapshot of my time at St. Andrew’s, the face I see the most is the smiling one of Ms. Tracey Goodrich. She was there in 2001 for my first year at St. Andrew’s when I was an eager, brace-faced, young teenager new to the independent school world. It was my first time attending school without my triplet siblings, Kendal and Kyle. Ms. Goodrich made me feel immediately
welcomed at St. Andrew’s. She was my teacher in 9th grade for Algebra and in 11th grade for Ceramics, but it was outside of the classroom where our friendship truly developed. During my time at St. Andrew’s, I went to Ms. Goodrich with every type of question and concern—from boys, to trying out for sports teams, to which colleges to apply to. My relationship with her cannot be captured by one specific story because that is not what made us friends. Rather, it was the constant,
reliable nature of our connections that strengthened our relationship. St. Andrew’s provided the environment in which our relationship could grow. She became a guaranteed part of my life and still is today. With her ongoing guidance and humor, Ms. Goodrich helped shape how I made, and would continue to make, decisions on my personal relationships, academics, and career path. Ms. Goodrich was like a second mom and treated everyone with respect and kindness, which was contagious. She prepared me for future challenges that I had to face at St. Andrew’s, college, and in my post-college life. A week into my freshman year at the University of Vermont, I joined UVM’s DREAM Program, which works with low-income children throughout the state. I mentored the sassy, funny 13-year-old Fatuma for four years and am still in touch with her. I can only hope that I influence her in the positive ways that Ms. Goodrich influenced my development as an individual. Ms. Goodrich always encouraged me to pursue my passion for writing by joining the Mane News and taking Ms. Speier’s creative writing class. During my sophomore year at UVM, I started writing for the satirical news magazine The Water Tower and worked my way up from staff writer to section editor to Editor-In-Chief by my senior year. In February 2010, I left the comfort of my UVM community and traveled to Santiago, Chile, for a study abroad semester led by Middlebury College. Two days into a week-long orientation, an 8.8 earthquake hit the country. My roommate and I were awakened by our air conditioning unit crashing to the floor along with our bedside lamps.
A Lasting Friendship
My relationship with Ms. Goodrich cannot be captured by one specific story because that is not what made us friends. Rather, it was the constant, reliable nature of our connections that strengthened our relationship. The earthquake was a nationwide tragedy, and I saw neighborhoods and historic buildings that were completely destroyed and people’s lives changed forever. Our program was also affected. Some students were unable to travel to Concepción, a city in Chile off the southern coast of the Bio Bio region. My host family’s apartment in Viña del Mar was severely damaged, and they had to relocate to a friend’s small summer home. I had to change my living arrangement after three days with my host family because of space issues. Throughout the ordeal, I tried to remain calm, empathetic, and lighthearted instead of stressed and scared. I thought of those in the southern part of the country who were still searching for family members and without essentials like water and food. The importance of community outreach that St. Andrew’s instilled in me continued to follow me and influence my decisions. The earthquake caused me to reflect on my travels with St. Andrew’s to Honduras and South Africa. The moments of those trips that stood out to me the most were those where we helped people in need. In South Africa, the group I was with visited an AIDS orphanage and played with children, each one of us being hung on like a moving playground. In Honduras, my group taught young kindergartners

R e p o rt
living in the rural hills of Copan. One of our tasks was to teach the kids a song in English and have them perform it in front of the class, challenging our musical talents, or lack thereof. Those service experiences brought out the best in all of us and also helped me learn about my personal strengths and weaknesses. When Hurricane Irene hit Vermont in August 2011, I organized a benefit concert to raise money for local farms, communities, and people who were harmed by the storm. My former boss, President Pro Tempore of the Vermont State Legislature, John Campbell deejayed the event and my brother’s band performed. More than 100 people registered for the event and more than $1,000 was raised to benefit the victims of the hurricane, including the local Intervale Center, the Vermont Red Cross, the Vermont Foodbank, and the Vermont Disaster Relief Fund. In all these efforts, I was guided by the values of St. Andrew’s and the advice I received over the years from Ms. Goodrich. In addition to helping others, she also taught me how to not take myself too seriously and let go every so often. Ms. Goodrich was always laughing or crying happy tears in response to a student’s success. The friendship that Ms. Goodrich and I have is not unique to us, but rather unique to the environment that St. Andrew’s
2012 1 -- 22 00 11 23
continues to cultivate. Although she only taught me twice during my six years at St. Andrew’s, we were able to maintain our friendship because St. Andrew’s encourages closeness and accessibility between teachers and students in a way I have not seen elsewhere. Seeing Ms. Goodrich at the Class of 2007 five-year reunion was surreal. It was probably the first time I started tearing up before she did. Ms. Goodrich told me how the current students are treating her, the changes with the incorporation of the Lower School, and the classes she teaches. I told her about living in Washington, D.C., as a policy analyst at Heather Podesta + Partners. At my job, I learn about a wide range of issues on a daily basis, from how we may build a colony on Mars to the importance of password protection against cyber security threats. I participate in a local kickball league, organize UVM alumni happy hours, and continuously try to beat my dad in billiards during my free time. (I have won once over the seven years I’ve been truly playing.) The balance between discipline, volunteerism, and kid-at-heart activities guides me today. I have Ms. Goodrich to thank for much of that and look forward to where the next 10 years of our friendship will take us.
Graduation Speech: Faculty and Future By R i c h a r d Ko c h ’ 1 3
In June of 2013, in his last official act as a St. Andrew’s student, Richard Koch ’13 gave the following speech during commencement at National Cathedral.
r. Kosasky, faculty, friends, family, and my fellow graduates, it is an honor to speak before you all this
morning. Allow me to begin with a moment of honesty. It has been a tremendous struggle for me to figure out what I was going to say this morning. Should I reflect on how quickly these four years have gone by? No, no, that’s really too cliché. Perhaps talk about the fond memories and high regard with which I hold my classmates? No, sorry guys, not really what I want to get at either. Throughout my misguided and confused thought process, there has really been but one constant topic that I have kept coming back to. My teachers. Cut and dry, my teachers over the
past four years have been exceptional. So I could name for you all a laundry list of adjectives describing my teachers —knowledgeable, inviting, interesting, approachable, thought provoking—but I don’t really think that would do them justice. The one adjective that stands out in my mind is caring. I look back at my winter months: neck deep and on the verge of drowning in the arduous college process. To say the least, I was incredibly overwhelmed. One of my teachers, someone aside from my college counselor who was beyond helpful and patient with me during this process, caught slight wind that I was having a tough time and reached out to me. I came into his room, poured out my problems while he sat across the table and listened. Over the following weeks, this teacher became somewhat of a savior to me, a staff of reliability and rationality. He gave me his cell phone number. We would exchange messages and words at school, and one night, in maybe the most troubling of times an hour-long phone conversation. This is not what teachers are paid to do. This is in my opinion above and beyond the call of duty, a manifestation of compassion. This teacher’s guidance helped me to think clearly in a time when clarity seemed distant. In great part because of our conversations and again, the support of my counselor and others, I happily decided to enroll at Fordham University next year. What I truly find exceptional though is that interactions like these between students and teachers at St. Andrew’s are not at all rare. If not to this degree, students can always be found chatting with their teachers either before or after class, and it is only because of their

Thank you all for the immeasurable impact you’ve had on each and every one of us. initiative that this is possible. I’m sure many adults in the room can claim to have been helped by their teachers growing up, but the sincerity and seriousness with which St. Andrew’s teachers consider their students I believe is incredibly unique. In a time where youth are ever saturated by social media and technology, creating meaningful relationships with adults is an ever diminishing skill. During my time at St. Andrew’s, learning this skill was inevitable. We as a class have become a confident group of students that are comfortable approaching our teachers for anything and as we enter the next stage of our academic careers, I can only think that this skill will be invaluable to us. We expect that we can go and talk to our professors and more importantly we expect out of ourselves that we’ll seek that assistance when we need or just want it. Our teachers have taught us how to self-advocate, and that is a skill that goes beyond just benefiting us in high school or college. Since this is my one shot at a high school graduation speech, I must provide at least one cliché that I believe is based in truth. My fellow graduates, the world is in our hands. We go to college

with essentially the opportunity to take our lives in whichever direction we want. We can study what we would like, follow a career path of our choosing, develop habits that with stay with us for the rest of our lives, and of course create connections to people that we will never forget. All said, there lays a lot of responsibility in that. I want to urge us as a class to stay focused, remember our potential, and lastly to respect and take seriously this time in our lives. Now I’m not saying don’t go have a good time, I think you all know I like to have a good time. But just remember that the decisions we make from this point on will drastically affect the rest of our lives. We are becoming adults, and that is certainly not something we should take lightly. To my teachers, thank again you for caring, for motivating, and for doing more than anyone could expect. To briefly quote the great Sherlock Holmes, ’Sometimes things are so overt, they are covert.’ And I say this because I think we sometimes overlook the obvious. Our teachers are always watching our backs and befriending us in times of need and quite honestly we have become so used to it, that it just doesn’t
receive the recognition it deserves. So thank you. Thank you all for the immeasurable impact you’ve had on each and every one of us. For those in the audience who are perhaps unfamiliar, I hoped this has given you a better idea of what St. Andrew’s is all about. Because as I see it, creating relationships, caring for people, they are at the essence of anything that is great. Thank you all for your time, and again congratulations to the Class of 2013.

Message from the Board Chair
business colleague recently expressed surprise that I was willing to serve as St. Andrew’s Board Chair, because all three of my children had already graduated from St. Andrew’s — the youngest a full three years ago. “Why,” he asked, “do you want to remain so involved?” Obviously, he did not know much about our extraordinary school. St. Andrew’s is unique among independent schools in the Washington area in how we challenge and support every student: l Faculty, coaches, and administrators all view themselves, first and foremost, as teachers and mentors whose purpose is to nurture and inspire every student they encounter throughout the day. l Our teachers believe in building personal connections with students — not just in classes or on athletic teams, but also in countless interactions in the hallway or on the campus. This is a core part of the ethos of St. Andrew’s as expressed in our mission statement. l We have built a consistently positive environment for students’ learning and growth. It is a can-do atmosphere that is infectious and empowering for students and teachers. l Each day our teachers challenge and support each student to reach his or her potential, without imposing the destructive, unreasonable stress that some schools mistake for success. This is at the core of the St. Andrew’s community of learners. What makes this possible? First and foremost, it is the dedicated and talented teachers, coaches, and administrators in our midst. It is the families and volunteers who support the community in a thousand ways. It is SAPA and our growing Alumni Association. And of course there are the parents, alumni, trustees, and friends who contribute to the Annual Fund, Auction, and capital campaigns. The coming year is a time of growth for St. Andrew’s. We have made significant upgrades to our Lower School campus in connection with a 6-year lease extension, and we are expanding our dynamic 1:1 laptop program to all Postoak students. Our Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning is enhancing
and showcasing our faculty’s talents by leveraging our unique relationships with the Johns Hopkins and Harvard Schools of Education, as well as Teach For America and dozens of peer private and public schools. We who are already involved in this dynamic community see these qualities every day, and St. Andrew’s depends upon each of us to convey these strengths to the broader community. We should not hide our light under a basket! Thank you for all that you do to make this community strong for those we serve, our students.

nne Wallace has been a part of the St. Andrew’s community for nearly two decades. In the fall of 1997, her oldest child began school at St. Andrew’s. After five years of volunteering in various roles through SAPA, she was named to the Board for the 2002-2003 year. After seeing all four of her children graduate from St. Andrew’s, she finally ends her time on the Board after 12 years. During that time, she served four years as Board Chair (2009-2013), one year as Vice Chair (20082009), and she Co-Chaired the Touchstone Campaign. She also watched her four children, Jake ’04, Madeline ’05, Abbey ’08 and Sam ’12, graduate from St. Andrew’s. Her impact on the school cannot be quantified. In June, she was surprised to learn of the creation of the Anne Wallace Fund for Service Learning. Created to honor the extraordinary leadership and spirit of Anne Wallace, the fund, which raised more than $68,000 in its first two months, will support the St. Andrew’s Service Learning Program (domestic and international).
“I am so pleased to play a role in the creation of the Anne Wallace Fund for Service Learning,” Head of School Robert Kosasky said. “Anne Wallace was and is one of the great volunteer leaders in St. Andrew’s history. Anne’s grace, good humor, and ‘can do’ spirit have been instrumental to St. Andrew’s growth and warmth during the past 15 years, highlighted by her four years as Board Chair. Anne’s energy and heart have fueled the growth of our domestic and international service programs, which now extends to four continents in dozens of ways.”

alumni news & Notes
his past spring, we published our first-ever digital Alumni Magazine. This publication allowed us to highlight some of our terrific alums, share class notes, and shine a spotlight on one departing faculty member who made enormous contributions to the school. On the following pages you will find a pair of features on two of our alums. Our Alumni Magazine has three additional features as well as all of our alumni notes. The Alumni Magazine can be found online by visiting www.saes.org/ alumni and click on the link for the Alumni Magazine. If you’re an alum who didn’t receive the magazine this past May, please let us know by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
s I begin my second year in the role of Alumni Director, 9th as an alum, and third as a faculty member, I look back at a wonderful year reconnecting with many of you, meeting some for the first time and as always, sharing memories, stories and fondness for our school. We were thrilled in May to deliver our first-ever online Alumni Magazine to our alums across the globe. Whether you’re near or far from campus, we hope the stories we share, updates we relay and photos we capture take you back to your time before you joined the Alumni Association. Furthermore, we hope that it allows you to reconnect with fellow alumni or create new relationships, sharing the St. Andrew’s alumni “membership”. Over the past few months, we’ve launched a place for those FALL / A N N U AL

2013 mackintosh Lacrosse game
n Saturday, May 11th, Alums from ALL classes came together to reconnect on campus and cheer on the Alumni vs. Varsity
Lacrosse Team during the Mackintosh Lacrosse Game. Thank you to all of the players and those who came to support!
After the Mackintosh Lacrosse game, the school, along with Jan and Linton Weeks and Sarah Taylor ’03, dedicated a new scoreboard for Brumbaugh Field in memory of Stone Taylor Weeks ’03. The scoreboard which will first be used during the 2013 fall sports season was given to St. Andrew’s by the Class of 2003.
Roy Barber A
fter 25 years at St. Andrew’s, Roy Barber announced his retirement last fall, effective the end of the 20122013 school year. During Alumni Weekend, he was honored by current teachers and former students (photos below and at right). On this page, you will find the lyrics to an original song that Roy wrote before he ever came to St. Andrews, along with the words Head of School Robert Kosasky wrote to commemorate Roy’s 25 years of service to the school. Both perfectly capture Roy’s spirit.
’One Step in Front of You’ by Roy Barber You bring a blanket Prune a Tree Build a road till you can see What you can do, one step in front of you. Teach a class, make a toy Bring a meal we all enjoy You do what you can do. One step in front of you. Build a school or shame a king Teach your child a song to sing
Roy Barber performs his song “One Step in Front of You” from his original play “Children with Stones.”
Take the truth further down the road And you’ll know when you are through
Amy Wooley, Performing Arts Teacher, gives a tribute to Roy
You did what you could do One step in front of you. When you must you hide a friend On a night that will not end Do what you can, one step in front of you. Write a letter, go to jail Just know even when you fail You did what you could do One step in front of you. When you stand outside alone With all the truth you own
Brynn Whiteley ’08 performs “Gaelic Blessing”
Make a choice to raise your voice Take the step in front of you What is your life. Woman or man You only do the best you can And at the closing of the day You know there only was this way Take the next step, one step in front of you
Roy Barber's 25th Anniversary Plaque For 25 years Roy Barber has brightened St. Andrew's with song and theater. He has worked with many devoted musicians, but his greatest happiness has come from creating a safe and happy space for students who did not before think of themselves as performers. Beyond the classroom, Roy has been a champion of service, justice, and outreach efforts. He created the Bokamoso partnership 13 years ago and has nurtured its growth into a signature St. Andrew's program and a life-changing opportunity for our students and hundreds of South Africa youth. Thank you for 25 years of creativity and connection, Roy! May 29, 2013

Melissa d’Arabian ’86 Keeping it Simple b y Dav i d B r an d t
eeping it simple and keeping it about serving the world in my own small way” are driving forces in how Melissa d’Arabian ’86 approaches life. In the end, the mother of four, television host, and New York Times best-selling author sees her work as “a means to an end.” She notes, “And the end for me is making my own unique mark on the world. It sounds so simple, but that’s how I define success.” And successful she has
“I bring my real life experiences to my TV show, my book, my speaking engagements, and my recipes. Ultimately, that’s what drives me: sharing the trenches with others.”
been. Not to mention very busy. Since winning the culinary competition series “The Next Food Network Star” on Food Network in the summer of 2009, d”Arabian’s career has taken off. She not only hosts her own television cooking show “Ten Dollar Dinners” on Food Network, but also Cooking Channel’s “Drop 5 lbs. with Good Housekeeping.” Her first cookbook Ten Dollar Dinners: 140 Recipes and Tips to Elevate Simple, Fresh Meals Any Night of the Week debuted in August 2012 and became an instant New York Times best seller. Prior to her emergence as a television talent, d’Arabian had a successful career in business. After graduating from St. Andrew’s in 1986, she earned her bachelor’s degree in Political Science from The University of Vermont and then received her MBA from Georgetown University. She began her professional career in consulting and eventually worked in corporate finance and planning at The Walt Disney Company in Burbank, California. She later moved to Paris — where she met and eventually married her husband, Philippe — to lead the merchandise finance group
for Euro Disney. Beyond the fact that she is a working mother who cooks daily for her family of six, d’Arabian credits her mother and Julia Child for inspiring her approach to cooking. Raised by her single mother “with a coupon-cutter mentality and on a shoestring budget in a humble home where waste was never a temptation, cooking together was a favorite pastime.” As for Child, d’Arabian loves how she “brought the love of cooking to the American home cook. I admire her fearless, unapologetic approach.” D’Arabian’s passion for her craft is not dissimilar to Child’s in that she desires to foster a love of cooking in her viewers and those who have read her book. She states, “I bring my real life experiences to my TV show, my book, my speaking engagements, and my recipes. Ultimately, that’s what drives me: sharing the trenches with others. I’m thrilled that so many people love to watch food TV, but I also hope they are inspired actually to cook. I’d love to see us as a culture celebrating the family table more.” Despite her growing
fame and the recognition she has received through national media outlets like The Today Show, CNN, People magazine, and Food Network Magazine, d’Arabian fondly recalls how St. Andrew’s played a part in her future direction. Not only did English teacher Dona Weingarten and Spanish teacher John Blount “inspire” and “challenge” her, but being a part of the St. Andrew’s community was the first time she says, “I had felt such a powerful sense of support from a large group of people, and that bolstered my esteem tremendously. Kids with self-esteem and support have so many options open to them.”
