A letter to the BB&N community from Head of School Rebecca T. Upham
Head of School's Blog
In this, my 15th Thanksgiving season at BB&N, I am able to say confidently that not a single day here has ever come and gone in which I have not been presented with manifold, wide-ranging reasons to be grateful. This year is no exception.
I am pleased to be able to update you on a couple of very important initiatives. The first is a project much on the minds of many of us here at school—the renovation of our Middle School facility at 80 Sparks Street. I shared the latest news with our Middle School families yesterday (click here to read that letter).
Dear Middle School Community,
We have a date! I am pleased to write you today with an exciting update about the renovation of the Middle School 80 Sparks Street facility.
After our most recent meeting with the project managers late last week, we can now establish that the “move back in” date for our students and teachers will be Wednesday, January 27.
I know you’ve been following this project with great interest and while January 27 isn’t the date we’d most hoped for, it’s pretty darn close. I’m particularly pleased to be on track to hit the 1/27 date since it marks a natural transition point in the Middle School academic calendar—the break between fall and spring semesters.
As I begin writing my letter on this March morning, I am looking out my window at yet another few inches of newly fallen snow. I’m sure that even for the most ardent snow lovers among us (and Will and I are skiers and climbers of many years), the charms of a fresh snowfall have decidedly worn off by this point in this historically exasperating winter. Enough already!
