Charlotte will be joining TQS in the fall. I am delighted to let you know that the TQS Board of Trustees has restarted the construction project of our new wing.
Dear Families and Friends of TQS,
Charlotte will be joining TQS in the fall.
When quarantine hit, Charlotte and her family felt her isolation acutely. Now entering ninth grade, she feels left out by her classmates and behind in all of her subjects. None of her classmates texted her to check-in; she was not invited to any Zoom parties, and no ribbons or signs appeared by her door. Charlotte’s time in middle school is ending, and nobody seems to notice but her. The lack of live classes in her public school, unavailability of support, and reduction of her speech and occupational therapy to 15 minutes a week has left Charlotte as lost academically as she feels socially. Thankfully her parents found TQS, and I know Charlotte is going to be ok.
With Montgomery County entering into the yellow phase and the school receiving permission to reopen, there is cause for optimism amongst the tragedy of COVID-19. There is no way to know how long the pandemic will last, but I do know that Charlotte and her 75 classmates need the love, support, and research-based programming of TQS more than ever.
Since students need TQS as much as they ever did, it is imperative that we create space for all who need our school. I am delighted to let you know that the TQS Board of Trustees has restarted the construction project of our new wing. We are breaking ground this summer, and here is the best news--we should be able to deliver the building on time. Charlotte and all her Upper School classmates will move into their beautiful new rooms in January 2021.
At a time when everything feels uncertain, I am deeply encouraged and comforted knowing that all of you care as much about TQS and students like Charlotte as I do. I have never been prouder to be a part of this community, and I thank you for your ongoing support.
