Unite Against Hate, Boston Anti-Defamation League Executive Director Tells Students

Unite Against Hate, Boston Anti-Defamation League Executive Director Tells Students

Young people have the power to stem the tide of anti-Semitism and other hateful incidents, said Robert Trestan, executive director of the Anti-Defamation League’s Boston Office.

“The most powerful thing you have is your voice,” Mr. Trestan told students. “Speak out. If you do it collectively, you can make a huge difference.”

First Art Exhibit and Jazz Concert of the School Year Opens in Kellner

First Art Exhibit and Jazz Concert of the School Year Opens in Kellner

Beginning on Friday, September 15, the newly renovated Arts Commons in the Kellner Performing Arts Center features Ubuntu, an exhibit by photographer Frances Scanlon. Ms. Scanlon’s body of work includes images captured over the years during the Milton Academy jazz group’s biennial tour of South Africa.

“What started out for Frances Scanlon as documentation of the Jazz South Africa tours crossed the line into art,” says Nesto Gallery Director Larry Pollans. “Frances finds structural energies that define South African culture. She also captures the spirited link forged between our students and the South Africans. There is a palpable sense of adventure in the images.”

Convocation Speakers Encourage Milton Students to Know, Challenge and Hear One Another

Convocation Speakers Encourage Milton Students to Know, Challenge and Hear One Another

“Know, and be known,” Head of School Todd Bland urged Milton students during Convocation on Friday morning, asking them to not run from difficult conversations, and instead seek to understand each other.

“I’m a believer in the truism that author Andrew Solomon is well known for saying: ‘It is nearly impossible to hate anyone whose story you know,’” Mr. Bland said. “I would carry that a step further: It is also far easier to maintain good faith in those whose stories you know. Let us do that for one another.”

Embrace Differences, Head of School Todd Bland Encourages New Students

Embrace Differences, Head of School Todd Bland Encourages New Students

Welcoming new students and their parents to Milton this week, Head of School Todd Bland asked everyone in attendance to acknowledge and honor the differences each student brings to the School.

New Class IV students, as well as those entering Milton in Classes III and II, join others from 24 U.S. states and more than 20 countries, each with their own stories and points of view. Some of them have been at Milton since Kindergarten, while others are brand-new. Mr. Bland promised parents that the School is ready and excited to guide each student as they grow more independent.

“We will do everything in our power to be supportive of your children,” he said. “We will care for them and we will look after them.” To students, Mr. Bland said: “You’re in for a great ride.”

Those First Few Days: Opening of School Overview

Those First Few Days: Opening of School Overview

Milton’s programming for new students and parents begins on Tuesday, September 5. Opening of school activities are designed to help families start to form an understanding of the community we strive to build, the many people who make up our community, and the individual contributions we all make to help form this dynamic learning environment. We know that while new students are surrounded by welcoming faces, they are making their way over unfamiliar terrain.

Our programs in the opening days are geared toward helping everyone get acclimated—to feel confident about who and where they are. These programs are designed by in-house experts—our own faculty and students—who know what being new to Milton feels like and what experiences will be helpful in those first few days. Each person at our School contributes to the Milton environment in big and small ways every day.
