On Monday, we welcomed a new student, Mary Lechner to the school. We had a surprise visit from City Councilwoman Mary Pat Clarke on Monday who stopped by to see how the new High School is going this year. That evening, Tom and two of the students went to meet John Starling and see the School of the Way following a presentation about the school from alumni Zack Austin. . On Tuesday, Peggy Lashbrook made a delicious lunch of BLT sandwiches and a salad. We were very fortunate to have Francine Krumholz bring in an Italian feast on Wednesday. Francine is active with the Baltimore Women’s Giving Circle and was the leader of the group that visited the school in the spring. She spoke with the students about her own career journey and her work advocating on behalf of children in the foster care system. Francine also explained about the work of the Baltimore Women’s Giving Circle, who this year funded APEX, our new computerized curriculum. Dave Bayer, Aduke Hubbard, and Eddie Gavin, representing the Board of Trustees met on Wednesday night. with Gary Bozel and Megan Lindenmeyer from Gary Bozel & Associates to review the financial audit report for the year. Everyone was really glad to see trustee Jeanette Norris who stopped in after the meeting to reaffirm her commitment to the school. It was wonderful to see alumni Desmond Carter when he visited the school on Thursday. Desmond is going to get some advice through our College Support Program. On Thursday night Lisa Gavin and Ryan Gavin upgraded our computer network with a new router that will speed our internet up from 16 mbps to 50 mbps! The week ended on Friday with a viewing of The Mission, a movie depicting colonization of the Native People in South America. This was part of our U.S. History class. It was another productive and terrific week!
