Weekly Parent Email – September 17, 2021

September 17, 2021

What a joy it is to interact with you and your students! This week we had the opportunity to meet with many of you for Parent Mentor Conferences. It’s evident that the road is paved for success when there is a strong partnership between parents, mentors, and students. When we have these individual conversations, it becomes clear that each Williamsburg student is on a unique path and has exceptional abilities that will bring transformation to this world. Thank you for your dedication to preparing your children for meaningful lives as principled leaders. We love partnering with you on this educational journey!
