Viking Voice – A Note From Bill Borg
Viking Voice – A note from Bill Borg
A rewarding decade of service at Vanguard has flown by. It is hard to believe that
the 2016-2017 school year will mark my tenth year as Vanguard’s Head of School!
There have been so many students whom I have had the privilege of seeing pass
through our halls. Unparalleled faculty and staff have offered the greatest support
system. Parents have continued to keep me motivated and energized to constantly
better our beloved school.
We will see our ninth consecutive enrollment increase this year. In the fall of 2007
Vanguard’s enrollment was 130. In the fall of 2016, Vanguard’s enrollment will
exceed 223 students.
Of course, growth means nothing if the highest quality of college preparatory
education is not sustained. I believe we have done just that. Families believe in what
we do, and we in turn value you selecting us with the all-important
responsibility of overseeing your children’s intellectual, ethical and emotional
development into young adults who are well-prepared for college and beyond.
Let me simply say – Thank you.
Thank you for entrusting me with the education of bright young adults
and allowing me to play a small part among the best faculty, staff,
dedicated members of our board of trustees, and all the volunteers
who collectively make Vanguard a special place. It has been a gift of the highest order.
For the 2016-17 school year, we would love to see
families even more involved in Vanguard.
As discussed at the Open House this week, please take the time to review our Family Handbook, paying close attention to the Attendance Policy, Campus Safety, Drug and Alcohol Policy, Honor Code, and Social Media. The Family Handbook was emailed out and is also posted in Renweb.
I urge you to mark your calendars for some of the below dates this fall!
