PikeHub for the week ending 09/17/21.
I have been lucky to experience Pike as a student, a teacher, and also a parent. For me, Pike has always been a community that is welcoming, nurturing, and inspiring. It truly exudes positive energy that can be felt from all perspectives.Hilary Munroe, Pre-Kindergarten Teacher
The students at Pike are passionate, coachable, and hard working. I enjoy being able to coach them as they compete and represent Pike on the athletic field.Matt Medeiros, Athletics Director
Having taught in a variety of school settings, I can honestly say that Pike students stand out in their genuine curiosity and willingness to try new things. Every day they constantly remind me of the joy of learning.George Philips, Upper School Music Teacher
As a teacher at Pike, I value the opportunity to explore a rich curriculum, from the science behind simple machines to the cultural traditions of México. Even more than that, I value the opportunity to create a community where I know the unique identities and passions of the children in my space. Teaching second grade isn't the most important thing I do — teaching children is.Julia Alexander, Grade 2 Teacher
I love that Pike is a community of readers where students and adults enjoy spending time with a good story. Books act as both windows and mirrors, offering us a view into a new world or reflecting our own world back to us. Pike readers read widely and are happy to share book recommendations.>Linda Spence, Upper School Teacher and School Librarian

It’s with great optimism that we are writing to you, our amazing Pike community. In the last year, amidst some of the most difficult circumstances, our community achieved a great feat. Pike faculty and staff nurtured curiosity and a love of learning in our children.
It has been a wonderful first week of school! The 2021-2022 year is off to a great start and your children seem right at home already in Pike’s Lower School.
