Dear St. Mark's Community,

The first academic week is almost in the books. Last Friday we kicked off the school year with our Convocation ceremony. The ceremony consisted of recognition of students' academic excellence, awards for teacher dedication, and a captivating speech from Mr. Warren. Mr. Warren spoke about his passions, what is meaningful to him, and ways in which he shares what is important to him with others. You can read Mr. Warren's Convocation talk by viewing the September Head's Reflection on our website.

With classes and athletics well underway and the first St. Mark's Saturday classes approaching tomorrow morning, the week comes to a exciting and tiring end for all of us. The busyness of school can be exhausting and overwhelming for some. Most students are still in the process of figuring out how to navigate the grounds, juggle new classes and prioritize commitments. If your child is moving from the "stretch" zone to the "stress" zone, please be sure to reach out to your student's advisor. While the pace has picked up, the community will continue to be a vibrant place with much to do throughout the year. Let's keep everyone in the "stretch" zone!

All the best,

David R. Vachris
Dean of Students
