Bay Farm’s middle school students enjoyed an end-of-year field trip to Boston where they stayed overnight and visited some very popular and interesting landmarks and attractions. In three days, they explored the Harvard Museum of Natural History, Harvard Square, the M.I.T. Museum (above right photo), the North End (including dinner there), Faneuil Hall, the New England Aquarium, the Freedom Trail, a duck boat tour, the Prudential Center and Boston Skywalk, the Harvard Club of Boston (above left photo), and the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum (above middle photo where Sarah is "throwing tea" in Boston Harbor). A favorite event was attending a performance of Sheer Madness.
With the school year coming to a close, the Board of Trustees would like to take a moment to express our appreciation to Hauke Kite-Powell for serving as the interim Head of School over the past year.
Hauke has been involved with the school for nearly two decades—initially as a parent and then as a member of the Board of Trustees. However, his dedication to the school was never more apparent than one year ago, when he offered to become a candidate for the interim Head of School position. As most of you know, he offered to serve this role without pay.
The Board decided to accept that offer—not because of the attractive price tag, but because of our respect for his judgment and skills, as well as his deep knowledge of the school. Hauke has provided an important degree of continuity and effective leadership over this period, keeping the school moving in a very positive direction as our new Head of School, Conrad Wildsmith, gets set to take the helm.
Thank you very much, Hauke, for your service to the school.
President of Bay Farm's Board of Trustees
