  • Message from the Chair of the Board of Governors

    by Barry Gordon '87, P'21
    Another year is now in the books and I have the opportunity to give you the Board Chair’s assessment of how Crescent is doing. As you know, the Board of Governors at Crescent School does not focus on day-to-day operations of the school. Rather, we focus on strategy, the financial well-being of the school, reputation, risk management and Headmaster oversight. My perspective is in many respects highly personal, for as many of you know I have a deep attachment to Crescent and what I like to think of as the broader Crescent family.

  • Year-End Thoughts From The Middle School

    By Rob Cranston, Assistant Head of Middle School
    June is my least favourite time of the year, because it is time to say goodbye to our boys. Summer brings an eerie silence in Crescent's Middle School that doesn’t seem to belong. The energy of our boys, the hustle and bustle in the halls and classrooms, are missing. (Yes, September is my favourite time of year for the exact opposite reasons.)

    Student Creativity Brings American History To Life

    By Alicia Hawryluk, Upper School Faculty
    I was blown away by my Grade 11 American History class projects this year. The students researched the life and times of different American presidents, and then presented what they discovered to the class. That doesn’t sound very revolutionary, but the project included an interactive class activity and a 21st century learning product, and that’s where the magic happened.

    Bon Courage to Our Language-Learners

    By Isabelle Moore, Middle School Faculty
    As a Middle School French teacher, one of my favourite parts of spring is seeing students in Grades 8 to 12 prepare for the DELF (Diplôme d’Études en Langue Française). When I run into them in the hallway, we talk about verb tenses and the “bon mot” for a specific context. We discuss being polite in French as well as how to use different expressions to share your opinion. It reminds me that language learning is very much alive and well at Crescent School!
