Big Changes in the Waterford Dining Hall


You have probably heard about the big changes in our dining hall this year, as we brought in a new service provider — Flik Independent School Dining. This company is a leader in dining hall services for private and independent schools. We are excited about taking a step forward in the quality, freshness, taste, variety, and healthfulness of the food available in our Dining Hall. For the remainder of the season we will also be offering some of the produce from our very own garden.

From their introduction: “As your new provider, our business and responsibility is to provide a top quality, nutritious dining service. Our passion is represented in our menus and food preparation philosophy. We start with fresh, whole ingredients and prepare our menu items from scratch. School menus, which will feature local and sustainable items, are created on your campus, specifically designed for your dining facility and your community’s needs."

Our Amazing Faculty: October 2014 edition


Meyers-gallery-invitationWe continue to hear news of many recognitions for our faculty in a broad range of fields. We have collected a number of recent accomplishments here. Look for collected student recognitions later this fall.


This summer English and History teacher Lawrence Zellner returned to Stony Brook University in New York to defend his dissertation, “The Vortex of Enthusiasm”: Religion and the Making of American Literature. Combining his interests in intellectual history, religious studies, and literature, this project explores how the concept of religious enthusiasm shaped American literature and culture from the Revolution through the Civil War in the work of three writers: Charles Brockden Brown, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Harriet Beecher Stowe.

Dr. Zellner also received a full fellowship to attend the Klingenstein Summer Institute—a program for early-career teachers at independent schools offered by Teachers College at Columbia University. For two weeks he joined other educators from around the world in discussions about teaching, learning, and contemporary issues relevant to education in independent schools.
