39 Farewell to Ward Ghory

ON THE COVER: The beginning of the 2010-2011 school year marked the opening of the Next Generation Campaign Phase II facilities improvements. Pictured here, students have room to move through the Middle School third floor corridor. The width at each end of the corridor increased from six feet to twelve feet with lockers replacing coat hooks.

University School of Milwaukee is an independent, coeducational, college-preparatory day school for students from prekindergarten through grade 12.

Message from the President of the Board of Trustees Nothing endures but change. – Heraclitus

“The times they are a-changin’.” So declared Bob Dylan in his musical ode to the social and political upheavals of the early 1960s. Today, against the backdrop of our current economic and technological upheavals, the lyric is as timely as a tweet. However, good old Heraclitus reminds us that Dylan was a little late to the permutation party. The ancient Greeks realized over 2,500 years ago that change is both a constant and a necessity (as I write this in July, a lesson the neo-Greeks are painfully learning anew).

President, Board of Trustees Michael A. Roth

Change and continuity are not mutually exclusive. Indeed, USM is in an enviable position in many respects, so there is much to preserve going forward. Nonetheless, USM’s strength stems in no small part from the refusal of its leaders and the community to rest on their laurels in our fast-changing environment. Accordingly, the Search Committee was looking for a Head of School who would be a fit for the unique personality and culture of USM in particular, a candidate who would steward continuity and possess the vision to manage change.

This past year, “change” was also on the lesson plan at 2100 West Fairy Chasm. The syllabus included the opening of a gleaming new facility, the start of a fresh strategic planning cycle, and the beginning of a transition in the leadership of the School.

Several well-qualified candidates were vetted by the Search Committee. One candidate, however, quickly took the lead. Laura Fuller was unanimously recommended to the Board and, after representatives of the various USM constituencies met with Laura, the feedback corroborated that endorsement.

Over a year ago, the painstaking process for finding a suitable new Head of School for USM was initiated; a process that would involve representatives from every corner of the USM community. The task was made all the more difficult given Ward Ghory’s accomplishments during his eleven-year tenure. Under his skillful leadership, USM had scaled new heights in academic “measurables,” including SAT/ACT scores, preferred college admissions, and National Merit Scholarships.

As we welcome Laura Fuller as the new Head of School, one of the first items on her and the Board’s to-do list will be to flesh out the new Strategic Plan, setting out the priorities of the School for the next few years. You will hear much more about this in the months to come. Areas of focus of the plan include technology, financial planning, facilities (e.g. for athletics and the arts), human resources, and USM’s interaction with the community. Stay tuned.

Without doubt, another high point during Ward’s USM career was the Next Generation Campaign. Through the outstanding generosity and diligent work of the USM community, our Endowment was strengthened and dramatic new additions to the USM campus were realized. The beginning of the 20102011 school year marked the opening of our Phase II facilities, providing enhanced opportunities for our students to benefit from 21st-century educational methods.

Yes, the times are changing. Nothing new there. And USM will adapt as needed. Nothing new there either. For as Benjamin Franklin observed, “When you’re finished changing, you’re finished.”


Welcome, New Head of School University School is proud and delighted to welcome Laura Fuller as the new Head of School for the 2011-2012 school year. Since 2007, Fuller has served as Head of St. Catherine’s School, an all-girls independent, Episcopal, JK-12 college preparatory day school in Richmond, Virginia. Fuller earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Wisconsin. Prior to St. Catherine’s School, she served as Head of the Upper School at Berkeley Preparatory School in Tampa and as Head of the Science department at the Taft School in Connecticut. Following the Board’s announcement in the fall of 2010, Fuller wrote to the School community. “My husband Tom and I are equally thrilled about living and working with all of you as we plan together and create the vision that will take USM well into the 21st century. As my dreams grow for the school, I want to pause to pay homage to the outstanding legacy of Ward Ghory. One only needs to walk around the beautiful USM campus to realize the dedication and expertise he obviously brought to his tenure as the Head of School. I am truly blessed to be provided the opportunity to stand on his shoulders as we move forward into the next era of educational excellence at USM.” Laura’s youngest son, Zach Erickson, will join the freshman class at USM for the 2011-2012 school year. Her oldest son, Jake Erickson, is a 2010 graduate of Florida State University in Tallahassee. Luke Erickson is a senior at Virginia Polytechnic University (Virginia Tech), majoring in Architecture. Fuller credits her many years as a parent for helping her develop “some of my most profound thoughts as an educator through my many years as a parent. The children have taught me patience (and sometimes impatience), humility and compassion, perseverance, and that being a parent is the biggest gift any of us could ever experience.” In addition to looking forward to her new role, Fuller is delighted to return to her home state. “I love the fact that my roots are in Wisconsin,” she says. “I was born in La Crosse and grew up in Oshkosh. After Oshkosh West High School, I went on to school in Madison and lived in Milwaukee, Appleton, and Madison after college and before leaving the state in 1991. My family is originally from the Appleton and Milwaukee areas. My brother and extended family all still live in Milwaukee. My husband and three stepchildren live in Oshkosh, and Tom will share his time between there and USM. I have always considered myself a Midwesterner even while living in the Northeast, South, and Southeast. It is wonderful to be coming home!” 4

Annual Gifts Make a Difference Both In and Out of the Classroom Generous support from parents, alumni, grandparents, faculty, staff, and friends enriches each USM student’s journey. The unparalleled educational experiences – both in and out of the classroom – that we offer each student are made possible through USM’s Annual Giving Program. Educational Technology Opens Up the Classroom In the 21st century, the definition of a classroom as “a room where classes are held” can be expanded well beyond four walls. Opening up the classroom is made possible by today’s educational technology and, thanks to our donors, our classrooms are equipped for the latest teaching methods. Our students are at ease in today’s digital environment, and faculty use innovative ways to integrate technology for both group projects and independent learning. Connecting with other cultures and young people in schools across the globe encourages and engages our students to become world citizens. From senior kindergarten on, our students know how to work with information on SMART Boards (interactive white boards), while Upper School Global Scholars use programs like Skype to talk to students halfway around the world in China. 20

Beyond the Academic Classroom – a wide range of opportunity In addition to the broad range of curricular classes such as world languages at age three and regular physical education, contributions help support a wide array of art, music, and drama classes, as well as athletics, community service, Middle and Upper School clubs, and so much more. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we can preserve and enhance these programs while other schools have been forced to make cuts as they are faced with funding challenges. As an example, annual gifts support a visit from an African drumming specialist who brings the sounds of the continent into the classroom. They also allow students to visit the Milwaukee Art Museum, culminating in our fourth-graders’ participation in the Museum’s Docent program, in which students prepare and present talks on their favorite artwork to parents and classmates.

Thank you to all the donors who recognize the importance of making an annual gift and how these funds make a difference in providing students with the forward-looking experiences that will benefit them for a lifetime.

Another area where annual gifts make a difference is the myriad professional development opportunities that we can offer our faculty. (Please see article on the following page.) 21

School was out for the summer… but our teachers were busy learning! Independent schools distinguish themselves by providing consistent, high-quality professional development opportunities for faculty and staff. At University School, such continuing educational experiences not only benefit student achievement, they also are part of the foundation of a community of learners, where knowledge is shared not only with students but also with other faculty members and parents.

with vital resources to attend national conferences, pursue advanced degree credits, develop innovative curriculum, and share ideas and techniques with peers. Thank you to our donors who continue to support the following Endowed Funds that help faculty and staff programs and capital projects. Faculty, Staff, Program, Capital and Unrestricted Funds

Thanks to our donors who support the Annual Giving Program and the Endowment Fund, USM is fortunate to be able to offer a variety of ways that teachers can gain knowledge, stay abreast of change in the classroom by observing best practices at similar schools, and create innovative educational dialogue.

Church Science Chair Fund Elisabeth Elser Doolittle Charitable Trusts Fund Dana Feitler Memorial Fund for Faculty Development Edward E. Ford Foundation for Faculty Development

Gregg Bach, Assistant Head of School and chair of the school-wide Professional Development Committee, believes these types of opportunities for our teachers enhance their skills and expertise and have a direct effect on teaching practices. “Research shows that teachers’ professional development can improve student achievement when it focuses on teachers’ knowledge of the subject matter and how students understand and learn it,” he affirms.

For example, as the School investigates the most effective approaches to align educational technology with our academic program, professional development is an essential part of the process. Thanks to the Julia and David Uihlein Faculty Enhancement Fund, faculty members have visited exemplary schools and attended national conferences in this field. National consultants have also been brought to campus to present to our teachers. In August, over 90 USM teachers benefited from an on-campus institute that taught faculty how to become more proficient in classroom instruction using individual computing devices.

Charles F. Wright Teaching Award

Wright Family Distinguished Faculty Endowment Fund Gina Bongiorno, fourth-grade teacher and Lower School chair of the Math Department, and Chuck Taft, eighth-grade history teacher and Middle School History Department Chair, have been selected as recipients of the Wright Family Distinguished Faculty Endowment Fund for the 2011-2012 school year. Established in 1992 by Jim Wright MCD’39 and his nephew Charlie Wright ’68, the Wright Fund serves to reward members of the faculty who exemplify the highest standards of independent school teaching. As part of this distinguished award, each will receive a one-time stipend and funding for a research grant of their choosing. Bongiorno and Taft will then share their research with students, faculty, and other members of the School community. Bongiorno is using her grant to research the use of iPads in the classroom. In addition to reviewing how and why other schools are using the device, this summer she attended a session entitled “Power Up – Connecting Technology to Today’s Learners,” which was a pre-conference option at the National Conference on Singapore Math Strategies, where many sessions included a technology focus. Bongiorno appreciates the professional development opportunities afforded to her at USM. “Education is evolving so fast,” she says. “This recent opportunity connected me to the technology world and changes the way I teach.” Taft is researching WWII’s Operation Overlord, retracing the crucial event of the 20th century through reading and travel, following the movement of Overlord from England to the beaches of Normandy and ending in Paris for liberation. Taft says he looks to bring his experience, “Walking in the Footsteps of Heroes and History,” to USM in many ways. “Obviously, my classroom instruction will be enhanced by this knowledge and experience,” he says, adding that he also wants to present to the larger USM community and build on his experience to renew the eighth-grade service project for Honor Flights.

Endowment Fund Report 2010-2011 The USM Endowment Fund provides a vital source of financial support, crucial to the School’s long-term viability. We are grateful to the many donors who support University School by giving to the Endowment Fund. As of June 30, 2011, the Endowment Fund value exceeded $47 million, representing an increase of over $6 million from the previous fiscal year total of $41 million. The Endowment provided $2.63 million to USM during the 2010-2011 school year to support key priorities including financial aid, faculty and staff compensation, curriculum, programs, and maintaining our 120-acre campus. In light of the market corrections that have impacted the Endowment, the School continues to tread cautiously in its budget planning. The annual distribution from the Endowment is based on a trailing eight-quarter average, which has generally been limited to less than 5% of that average. The purpose of this policy is to moderate the effect of market increases and decreases. As a result, the Trustees anticipate the Endowment distribution will remain depressed in the short term, impacting the School’s annual operating budget. In turn, the Finance Committee of the Board of Trustees and the Administration continue to make the budget adjustments necessary to offset the effects that market values have on the Endowment distribution. USM’s Endowment is invested with Commonfund, a non-profit investment management firm that serves over 2,000 independent schools, universities, and non-profit organizations. The Endowment Board follows a long-term investment strategy calling for a 75/25 equity to fixed income ratio with meaningful international exposure and a careful commitment to alternative investments such as private equity.

2010-2011 Endowment Board

USM is proud of the professional development opportunities that our faculty and staff members participated in this summer. Topics spanned science and technology as well as visits to countries around the globe to study world languages and culture. For a summary, visit

SUPPORTING USM THROUGH PHILANTHROPY University School is grateful to the many generous individuals and families whose philanthropic support advances the School’s mission in so many different ways. Contributions to our Annual Giving Program support an outstanding faculty and staff, student financial aid, excellence in academics, and innovative student programs. Gifts to the Endowment Fund provide for the School’s future. Investment income from our Endowment provides resources for financial aid, faculty and staff professional development and compensation, and program support. Charitable gift planning provides donors opportunities to impact USM’s future, while planning for their own financial futures. Whether donors are seeking to satisfy current income and estate tax needs, prepare for retirement, or make low-yield assets more productive, a well-crafted planned gift can be an invaluable part of an individual’s financial and charitable planning. Through careful planning today, donors can leave a legacy far beyond their expectations. Donors and friends will find helpful information about a variety of charitable gift planning options online at

To learn more about the different ways you can impact USM through philanthropy, please contact Jodie Tonner, Director of Advancement, at 414.540.3333 or

Message From Jodie Tonner, Director of Advancement – Moving Forward Through Philanthropy Recently, a school parent stopped by my office to talk about philanthropy at University School. Out of general curiosity and specific interest, he asked insightful questions on governance, finances, and School operations, and where philanthropy fit into the picture. Although it was not our original intent, it turned out that he and I had an important conversation about the many distinctive aspects that define independent education. As an adjective, the word “independent” takes on several meanings for USM, including autonomy, self-governance, and no public-funding support. Yet I particularly like the following definition, especially as it relates to our financial independence: “not depending on something else for strength and effectiveness.” Charitable contributions whether through Annual, Endowment, or Planned gifts provide the necessary, additional financial resources – over and above tuition – that keep USM strong and effective.

Students performed countless hours of community service during the 2010-2011 school year. Highlights included: • In Preprimary and Lower School, students completed a service project for the Second Saturday Program.

Students put together goodie bags for the participants and held bake sales to raise money for additional supplies. • Middle School students wrapped up Coins for Cambodia, a two-year project to raise funds for a school in Cambodia. The

project was initiated after nine Middle School teachers and staff members visited and taught at the school during the summer of 2009. Through various raffles, auctions, and donations, students raised over $5,300. The Cambodian school will be able to purchase at least one computer and a solar panel, allowing Middle School students at USM to communicate and learn with the students there. • In April, the Upper School STAR Service Club held its third annual fashion show to benefit Sojourner Family Peace Center, which provides shelter for men, women, and children who are victims of domestic violence. Parents, students, and faculty served as models showcasing looks from area stores. Students raised over $1,300 for the organization.
