What I’m Excited About…
TONIGHT: Conversation about the The Social Dilemma! Please join us tonight at 18:00 for a conversation about the new docudrama, The Social Dilemma, hosted by our Secondary School Teacher-Librarian, Ms. Terry Maguire. This film explores social media's effects on mental health, as well as how a user's time spent on social media sites is used for data mining and surveillance capitalism. Product developers, engineers, and a design ethicist share behind-the-scenes information about social media product development at Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, and Youtube. Here's the film's trailer (2:34) if you'd like to learn more about this 2020 Sundance Film Festival official selection. Just click here to join. Even if you have not yet watched the film, I’m sure you will learn from the conversation.

2019-20 Yearbook Distribution! Due to COVID-19, the 2019-20 yearbook was published digitally on the Parent Portal (click here). Since many people enjoy having a physical memento, we have just printed a limited number of hard copies. Across the next couple weeks, we will be distributing one yearbook to each family that was here last year. This yearbook features dozens of photos of Zambia submitted by members of our school community. I know you will enjoy it.
Food Service Selection Process! We received nine submissions in our food service tendering process. Across the next couple weeks, a committee of staff and students will review these submissions and, ultimately, choose our next food service provider. We anticipate restarting food service in January 2021.
The Leopard's Tale is our main medium to keep our families informed on such things as the day to day happenings on campus, after school activities, summaries of any arts and sports events, helpful resources, and important dates and reminders.
