New Year Goals
As the students traveled back to campus from the Holiday break on Monday, faculty spent the morning in professional training and team building. One of the exercises involved identifying personal and professional strengths and areas of development. The next day, students went through the same exercise in the morning meeting. Examples of their contributions include:
Areas of Development
Since the theme of the winter term is Synergy, our discussions this week have focused on setting new goals for the new year and also on learning how to give, listen to, and accept feedback from others. While it is always challenging to return from the holiday break and lean into the winter months, these discussions have been uplifting as it is clear that our community has so much potential and insight to help each other be our best selves.
Inner Leadership - Developing one's Leadership from the Inside Out
During the school meeting this week, we focused on leadership development. While we can get caught up in believing that a leader is someone who is always strong and can do it all without help, real leadership is about getting in touch with one's strengths, challenges, and vision. Hyde defines this as Inner Leadership that is unique to each individual
In the meeting, selected seniors and faculty spoke about the Five Deliverables that are part of the Inner Leadership Model:
Students and faculty also acknowledged students in each category who have demonstrated growth and who were examples to follow. At the end of the meeting, we shared thoughts about what we were taking away from this school meeting:
It was a great meeting and a great way to kickstart our winter goals!

2022 In Review
As 2022 comes to an end, we look back at some of our favorite memories. These moments are possible because of the generosity from our alumni, HAPAs, parents and friends, along with our dedicated faculty and staff. Our students continue to inspire us with their courage, integrity, leadership, curiosity, and concern. Let us celebrate together the many joyful moments of 2022, and we can't wait to create new ones in 2023.

Kingswood Invitational Tournament at Kingswood Oxford School in West Hartford, CT
Friday, December 16, 2022
GVBB vs Austin Prep 21 - 43 (7th/8th Place Game)
The Boys' Varsity Basketball team traveled down to Kingswood Oxford School on December 16th for the Kingswood Oxford Basketball Invitational. Our first game was against Green Farms Academy, 68-64. This win put the team in the semi-finals against King School, 46-58. We finished the tournament with a game against Capital Prep Harbor, where we lost 25-71. Two of our top players were taken out of the Capital Prep Harbor game due to disciplinary issues, which resulted in the low score and game loss. The team finished fourth overall.
This is not how the team envisioned their final game of the tournament, but it was a huge learning curve where many lessons were learned. We have some things to work on, but all in all, the tournament was a huge success and our players worked hard and played well. I am looking forward to returning next year with a different outcome. Tave Cloutier '25, was selected to the All Tournament Team and Jose Batista '23 was an honorable mention. This week, the Boys' Varsity team heads off to Brooklyn, NY to Canarsie High School to participate in the fourth annual Real Scout Big Apple Jamboree. Our first game will be Saturday, January 7th at 10:45 AM vs. Omina from Finland. On Sunday the 8th we'll face Covenant Prep from New Jersey. Go Wolfpack!
