More from Mr. Whelan
Tuesday morning the GFA Middle School held a virtual convocation which included a speech from Head of School Bob Whelan on becoming the best versions of ourselves.
Dr. King wrote, “We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny.” Garment of destiny — that sounds very superhero-like, right? He went on to say, “Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” That sounds a lot like our GFA motto, "Each for All."

Preparing our students for a life of purpose requires the development of intrapersonal character strengths, or “strengths of will” — academic self-control, delay of gratification, optimism, and a growth mindset.
