Chapel Theme for the Year
The Chapel Theme acts as a central thematic thread throughout the school year.
Each year during the Spring the Upper School Vestry and Middle School Chapel Council ask for ideas for the theme that will form a focus of addresses in Chapel for the following academic year. The theme should highlight that issue or idea that the school community thinks should be at the heart of our discussions in matters of the Spirit. Obviously other ideas and topics are covered in chapel, but the theme acts as a central thematic thread throughout the school year. The student leaders of these two groups establish processes where their peers, faculty, administration, and staff across all units of the school can offer their suggestions as to what core consideration should be under discussion.
The theme for the 2011-2012 school year is "Be the change you want to see in the world
" - Gandhi
Themes in past years have included the following as a representative sample: Faith, Hope Love, Esse Quam Videri, Honor, Unity, Journey, Faith, Words To Live By, Character, 'Risk, Respect, and Responsibility,' Reach Back to Go Forward, Why Do Bad Things Happen To Good People?, Risk and Resilience, and Do Justice, Love Kindness, Walk Humbly.
