Forging Pandemic-Proof BondsCOVID-19 has required our boarding community to pivot education plans like never before. Schools and students are proving up to the challenge.
St. George’s School had to cancel their annual fair, but the Parents Association, students and their families came out in organized shifts to show their support and love for the community through beautiful sidewalk chalk artistry.
Brilliant singing by our Acapella Group from around the world coming together to sing a tribute to One Direction’s “18” 😍 https://t.co/kj7DjcvQkH #choosetobe #inthistogether #onedirection @CAISboarding @boardingschools @ISABC1 @onedirection pic.twitter.com/S7pWmcPVzZ— Brentwood College School (@BrentwoodNews) April 27, 2020
Western Reserve found a special way to honor the Class of 2020 through a time-honored tradition – with a twist.
The fair could not be held this year… but LOVE must go on. Yesterday the St. George’s Parents Association, Saints students, and their families came out in organized shifts to show support and LOVE for the community with sidewalk chalk artistry. #saintsgoMAD pic.twitter.com/2HwXINruND— St. George’s School (@SaintsBC) May 1, 2020

SENIOR SPOTLIGHT – SAGE WILLIAMS How long have you been at CRMS 3 years What will you miss most about CRMS? I will miss the tight-knit community at CRMS the most. Everyone is supportive and looking out for each other. Was there a CRMS teacher that had a significant impact on your life? Lynn has been my art teacher for three years; she’s the best. AO has also been a highlight of my senior year. I really enjoyed his class. And of course Jim Gaw. He has been so supportive of me the past 3 years at CRMS. I’ve really enjoyed spending lots of trips and an interim with him. What are your plans for senior project? I am planning on doing an in-depth study of law through interviews of lawyers throughout the valley. I will also be watching some of Anne Norrdin’s court cases remotely! What are your plans after graduation? I am planning on attending the University of Denver. I’m hoping to join the figure skating team and major in Criminology. #boardingschool #boardingschoollife #readyformore #SeniorSpotlight #crmsclassof2020

We will start this week off with two new student introduction given all of the exciting reach outs and engagement initiatives going on with our new families this week. As we have shifted to our world online, it’s actually allowing us to connect more frequently and in more personally then we normally do in the spring with our newly enrolled families. This past weekend, I enjoyed a great chat with Sienna ‘24 and her parents from Bermuda. Sienna is excited to be following in her uncle’s footsteps and continuing the family legacy. . . This week, our new families will hear from their student buddy, our global ambassadors as well as their housemaster. Some of the new students are even going to attend a Grade 5 breakfast or pop in on a house meeting with the current students. #newstudentmonday #community #welcometotcs #tcsprops #trinitycollegeschool #tcsbears #newstudents #tcssaidyes #boardingisbetter #independentschool #boardingschool
