This fall, we've invited Jennifer Senior to speak to the Whitby community as part of the Whitby Lecture Series. We're excited to learn more from Jennifer about how parenting has changed. She graciously agreed to speak to us beforehand about why she wrote All Joy and No Fun.
Author of All Joy and No Fun: The Paradox of Modern Parenthood Jennifer Senior will speak at the Greenwich Library on Wednesday, September 30 at 7pm. While most parents think about how they affect their kids, they seldom ask how their children affect them.
This year, thirteen of Whitby's Chess Players traveled to Nashville to compete in the United States Chess National Elementary K-6 Championship. Whitby School's K-6 and K-3 teams took 6th and 11th place respectively. Grade 3 student Max Lu placed 1st in the nation during the tournament's K-3 Blitz round.
At Whitby's Annual Spring Benefit in April, the guests were treated to a special display highlighting some of the incredible work the students and teachers accomplish throughout the day. These interactive kiosks, stood at various places in an open room where fascinated attendees circulated and stopped at each area.
Congratulations to all of our Grade 8 Students on the completion on the Secondary School selection process. The class of 2015 has received a plethora of acceptances from boarding schools, day schools and area public high schools. The process is marked with several stages of self-evaluation, collaboration, consultation, and transformation.
