My time as a Poly parent came to an end this year when my younger child graduated with the Class of 2017. As astonishing as the apparent speed of childhood is, I have appreciated the great sense of readiness in both my daughter and son as they bid Poly farewell. At those no-turning-back points in life, the knowledge that we are well equipped for what lies ahead is a privilege and joy.
Polytechnic School is equipped in the same way, thanks to continual giving by this community that cares deeply about its excellence and long term viability. Your many gestures of confidence in the way Poly prepares young people for lives of good work and engagement made this year at school remarkable, and I am very thankful as a parent.
Additionally, on behalf of the wonderful individuals who enjoy serving together as Poly’s Board of Trustees, I extend gratitude for your financial contributions. Through annual giving to the Poly Fund and gifts for scholarships or specific programs, you set Poly on a course to succeed in its work. Teachers can jump wholeheartedly into their lessons, and students may focus on the array of opportunities before them.
Thank you, donors and volunteers, for your goodwill and friendship. You make each student’s experience at Poly a joyful preparation.
