A Note from Stacy Turner, Head of School

It's nearly impossible to sum up in words everything we've been through this last year.

It's nearly impossible to sum up in words everything we've been through this last year. Even as the global pandemic continues with renewed vigor, I can’t help but believe we still have much to celebrate as a community. We opened the 2019 school year with the same innocence and purpose as every year prior, not realizing what lay ahead. We ended the year with grace, creativity, and a renewed confidence. Hamlin Robinson School still has so much to accomplish and offer. 

We cannot stop our work – in fact, our current environment proves the program offered at HRS is more important than ever. Literacy is a social justice issue – every child, every student, every person, deserves the opportunity to learn how to read and write, no matter the circumstances. 

Yes, it would be naïve not to acknowledge there remains incredible uncertainty. But, what remains the same? 

A deeply talented and fiercely dedicated faculty and staff who encourage, support and mentor our students. A loyal and generous Hamlin Robinson community whose efforts make it all possible. Together, we are singularly focused on one goal: to ignite the academic and creative potential of students with dyslexia and other language-based learning differences. 

What’s The Scoop? This newsletter includes our annual report – and provides opportunity to reflect on our goals and accomplishments, with laser vision on the future ahead. As an organization, we are exploring our creative side and refreshing our brand. You will see it in the pages of this newsletter, from cover to end, including the new name. This refresh includes recognized visual elements – but with an updated look and feel. It will reflect a more current, renewed image and keep pace with our competition as we continue to grow. 

It is in the spirit of gratitude we offer this publication, celebrating the gifts, achievements, and generosity of the HRS community. We will continue to innovate, evolve, and reinvent in service to our students.
