Message From Our Head of Admission
When I think about school beginning again, my mind immediately goes to the students. Although a summer off can be productive and relaxing, we all miss our girls. And coming back to school is special, whether it’s your very first day or even your 37th first day, like it is for me.
As a member of the HB administration, I count myself lucky to still be having first days (and even luckier to experience the joy of a snow day every now and then). The excitement of the students’ arrival always gives me butterflies. This is a time of reconnection and new beginnings.
The Admission Office has another new beginning to celebrate this year as well. We’re so excited to be able to bring back one of our own for another first day of school at HB. Students are the center of the HB community; we watch them grow, thrive and eventually soar away from campus. But when we’re really lucky, they come back.
We welcome Katherine Jenne Chapman ’04 to the HB Admission team for the 2013-14 school year. I had the pleasure of knowing Katherine as a student, and now I’m thrilled to have her as a colleague. She has been a middle school teacher and she’s worked in the summers as an administrator for Aspire, HB’s tuition-free academic enrichment program for girls in under-resourced schools in Cleveland. She began her HB career in the fifth grade, and there is no one better to share the middle school experience with prospective HB families.
Katherine joins the other members of our experienced and enthusiastic team: Kristin Kuhn, director of Early Childhood and Primary School admission, and Colleen Sommerfeld, director of Upper School admission. All four of us are anxious to share the HB story with you, and the story is a good one.
Please enjoy this Learn for Life magazine, listen to the voices of the students, faculty, and parents, and consider the HB community for your daughter or EC son. As a parent of an HB student, I can tell you firsthand what a wonderful influence this school has had on my child. And on me.
I look forward to welcoming you and your child for a first day at HB. It is guaranteed to be memorable.
All parents hope to find the academic environment that enables their child to thrive and we have definitely found that special place at HB.
