Geneva School of Boerne is continually seeking ways to actively involve the parents, siblings, and grandparents of students in the programs and activities of the school.

The Parents' Corner includes links to the school's weekly communications (such as iFYI and WAGs) as well as order forms (lunch, Booster Club items, etc.) and schedules.

Ending Well

Late next week, we conclude our school year with two events – the Closing Assembly on Friday morning (8:30 – 10:00 am) in the MPB and Commencement on Saturday morning (11:00 am -12:30 pm) at University United Methodist Church (5084 De Zavala Rd, San Antonio).  Both events are open to the public and I invite all in our school community to join us as we celebrate the end of the year as well as the end of a Geneva education for the Class of 2015.

At the Closing Assembly, we will recognize employees who have served our school 5 and 10 years; say goodbye to departing faculty and staff; thank those volunteers who have completed their leadership commitment in GCL, Booster Club and the Board of Trustees; announce our Eagle Award recipients in Logic School; and congratulate the Paideia winners, given to the top teachers as voted on by their colleagues in Grammar, Logic and Rhetoric Schools.

At the Closing Assembly, we will also celebrate our victory in the Henderson Cup competition.  The Henderson Cup is given by TAPPS to the top performing private schools in Texas for each of the classifications – 1A to 5A.  Geneva is winning the award this year as the top 3A private school, our first year in that classification.  We won the award the last two years as a 2A school and the three years prior to that as a 1A school

The end of the year is a time to say goodbye to those departing our school.  This year, we say goodbye to two current faculty members who also served as Geneva’s top administrator during the critical formative years of our school.  Susan Dunn served as Geneva’s first Head of School.  She played a critical role in the school’s early development and thanks to her wise and nurturing leadership, Geneva was set on a solid foundation that continues to this day.  Susan is retiring from full-time teaching in order to spend more time with her family, especially her grandchildren.

After Susan moved from administration back to the classroom, Leslie Moeller replaced her as our second Head of School.  Leslie served as Head of School until she stepped down from that position in order to have her daughter Virginia.  Leslie then joined the school’s Board of Trustees where she eventually served as Board Chairman.  Recently, she served as a faculty member in our School of Rhetoric.  Leslie and her family are moving to Virginia this summer in order to be close to their sons (students at UVA) as well as to return to the place that was their original home.

Both Susan and Leslie will play a role in our Commencement ceremony.  Susan will read the Scripture (Joshua 24:13-24) and Leslie will give the Commencement speech titled “Not a Safe Lion.”  Leslie, co-instructor of our Senior Thesis program, has this to say about speaking before the seniors at Commencement:

While the first four Geneva graduating classes had impressive graduation speakers with PhDs and even a former Secretary of State, the class of 2015 has a first of its own: graduation payback.  For the past year, I have been one of the two Senior Thesis teachers who have required the students to prepare and present a twenty minute speech as a graduation requirement.  Having successfully cleared this final hurdle in their Geneva education, they now get to impose the same requirement on their teacher.

Please join us as we give thanks to God for another blessed school year and as we say farewell to the Class of 2015. Brad Ryden
