By Suzanne Gorman, Head of Downtown Campus

We are headed into a long weekend commemorating the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In SFS diversity news, we have decided to move to a model of campus Coordinators of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI for short). The longer title is more reflective of what we’ve long meant when we’ve talked about “diversity.” The new Downtown Campus coordinator is Dr. Brett Paice, English teacher and BSA Moderator. He will be working with our BSA, QSA, Gender Equality Club, and Diversity Committee, as well as with the Goshen Campus coordinator, Lindsy Serrano. This semester, plans include a BSA trip to see Pipeline at Actors Theatre, and various speakers and events for all our DEI groups are in the works.

It’s admissions season at the High School and we are excited to welcome our new Admissions Director, Toni Robinson (see more information on her in this week’s newsletter). I’ve been reading applications and absolutely love getting to know, at least in this limited way, some amazing students who will join our Goshen 8th graders in the Class of 2023.

And, of course, it’s college admissions season! We’ve had some exciting early acceptances, while other students wait anxiously for their colleges to respond. Seniors are busy as they continue to visit possible schools and weigh their options. They’re also occupied with their Senior Projects – I’ll share more about those upcoming presentations next week!
