Letter from the Headmaster

Dear MHS Parents:

Teaching at an independent school requires a certain belief in the
importance of community and personal investiture in the teaching and
learning process. The faculty here works hard to foster and encourage both.
Equally, all of you have come to Mooreland Hill School because of similar
beliefs and also work hard to support the mission of the school.

While Mooreland is not the first, nor the only school in which parents thank
teachers for their dedication and effort on behalf of their children, the
manner and genuine quality of your expression of thanks was and is very much
appreciated. From the tokens of gratitude to the sentiments expressed on the
accompanying notes to the four-course luncheon on Wednesday, we consider
ourselves lucky to have such a supportive parent group.

Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedules to do make Teacher
Appreciation Week so meaningful for all of us.

Mike Dooman
