Traditions Continue

Traditions are a big part of the end of every school year at Lausanne, and this year is no exception. The celebrations may look different than before, but our students and teachers across all grade levels are marking the end of the year with parties, videos and award ceremonies in creative ways. Our community took part in ArtsFest/SportsFest, the senior's "College T-Shirt Picture" and the eighth-grade "year-in-review" video, but in ways that ensured the safety of our community. 

This Monday, with strict protocols in place, our Lower School students will still say goodbye to their teachers from their cars as they pick up items they may have left at the school. They'll be dropping off well-wishes for their teachers, and, in the case of our fourth graders, letters for their "time capsules," which they'll open again at the end of their senior year in 2028. The letters typically explain what is happening in the world around them, and their hopes and dreams for the future. Though today it may be difficult to see the brighter days ahead, we hope that they, and students in every grade level, continue to approach their futures with a Lausanne optimism.

While some of our traditions have been modified for the current situation, their importance has only been deepened. Rest assured: our teachers will continue to prepare our students to be adaptable problem solvers, empowered to face whatever the future holds. And that is the tradition at Lausanne I'm most proud to continue.
