Communications from Peter Bachmann

Flintridge Preparatory School is actively monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak and will send out regular correspondence to keep the community updated and informed. This webpage will also be regularly updated. Flintridge Prep will look to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the California Department of Public Health, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, and a consortium of local independent schools to make the most informed and appropriate decisions.

 

May 22 Communication

Some pats on the back are in order, with the last final and the Spanish AP completed today.

Congratulations to all students and faculty for the successful completion of a “different” fourth quarter, which called upon your reserves of grit, good humor, and resourcefulness. Thanks also to the families for constant support. Administration, the Technology team, and staff are unsung heroes, who, behind the scenes, made everything possible. A crisis “tests the steel” of a culture. Prep’s steel has proven strong. 

And now to celebration! Please join us for the Virtual Commencement ceremony this Sunday, May 24 at 5:00 p.m. The Class of 2020 and their families received the Zoom registration information via email, so please ensure you’re registered. Anyone else who wants to watch the Virtual Commencement ceremony, join us by watching the YouTube livestream: https://youtu.be/gDxN7SYwM2k.   

On Tuesday, May 26 at 5:00 p.m., we will hold our 8th Grade Promotion. The Class of 2024 and their families received the Zoom registration information via email, so please ensure you’re registered. Anyone else who wants to watch the Virtual Promotion ceremony is invited to join us on our YouTube livestream: https://youtu.be/GblgHCGhEog.

Each event highlights the triumphant individual who hears a personal drummer with the support of an affectionate community.  

Reggie Ursettie and Erin Peterson are excited to share the digital version of Mr. Flintridge Prep! Watch the Mr. Flintridge Prep Mockumentary here: https://vimeo.com/421668368 

This event not only brings laughter and joy, but also raises money for a charity chosen by the juniors and seniors on the Mr. Flintridge Prep Committee. In lieu of ticket sales this year, if you would like to make a donation to Myotonic Dystrophy Care and Cure, please find more information here. 

“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.”
