I have been working with a small group of teachers and board members setting some strategic priorities for Tuxedo Park School moving forward. This “think tank” has spent time reading, dreaming and sorting out our thoughts on program, innovation and space use. We have discussed what makes TPS what it is: a vibrant school community, albeit it small, with a tremendous sense of community and purpose. And as we look forward towards our future, we continue to accord respect to the amazing history and tradition of the school. I have since started collecting examples of how communities mark time and pay homage to their roots. This link is a pure pleasure. Watch it for five minutes and just smile.
