Endings and Beginnings

By Suzanne Gorman, Head of Downtown Campus

Watch your email for an exciting announcement about our new spaces opening SOON!

This week brought the end of field hockey and soccer seasons (congratulations to both squads for fantastic seasons!) and the start of basketball practice and 9th-grade-in-downtown-louisvillebowling matches! Auditions for our Showcase of Plays are underway and the Quick Recall team began league play. And we still found time for the annual 9th grade downtown adventure field trip/10th-11th grade PSAT/12th grade college application and essay work day on Wednesday!

The noon dismissal on that annual PSAT (etc.) day has always allowed for some professional development time for faculty, which we’ve used in various ways. This year, it was devoted to work time for our ISACS Self-Study. You may remember filling out the ISACS Constituent Survey last spring; with the results of that in hand, we can now dive into every school area (curriculum, programs, services, facilities, technology, etc.), identifying strengths and challenges to create reports that will comprise our Self-Study. We work on the document throughout this school year and provide it to the ISACS Visiting Team in advance of their three-day visit to SFS next fall. You’ll certainly hear much more from us about this as the year goes on.
