The Parents Leadership Council Meeting on October 20 was a spirited opening to the Fall 2016 Family Weekend! Over 40 parents attended the Parents Leadership Council Meeting led by Co-Chairs Janice and Dana Rowan, parents of Will Rowan ’19. The afternoon’s featured speakers were New Hampton’s Head of School Joe Williams and his wife Eileen Williams.
Joe shared the Williams' story of how they came to NHS last summer, and shared their excitement and enthusiasm for being a part of such a dynamic school community. They spent time responding to many questions posed by current parents as they got to know each other over the course of the afternoon.
Five engaging breakout sessions occurred during the second portion of the event culminating in an interesting report out session from each group as parents discussed ways to become more involved with their children’s school community, and explored opportunities for collaboration in support of this year's theme of "Better Together".
The next PLC Meeting is scheduled for Saturday, April 29 which is the same date as the NHS Prom. More details will be forthcoming on this meeting in early 2017.
