Dear Oldfields Family and Friends,

I hope your summer has been a wonderful memory filled time for you and your family. It has been busy here at Oldfields as everyone prepares for the new school year.

This summer has been an equally busy one for the Head of School Search Committee and our consultants Dr. Jerry Larson and Dr. John Watson. Jerry and John have been traveling the country meeting with prospective candidates for Oldfields. We all met at Oldfields this past Friday to review an impressive group of applicants. Our focus: the school, the candidates, and honoring our past while looking towards the future.

I am pleased to report that the Committee has narrowed the field down to our semi-finalist candidates. Those semi-finalists will be visiting campus in mid-September to see the School in action and to meet with our Head Search Committee for comprehensive interviews. Because our candidates are currently engaged in leadership positions at their own schools, we have to respect their confidentiality so as not to disrupt their school communities. However, once we have chosen our finalists from this group, we will be sharing the names and brief biographies through the Oldfields website. I will update you after our mid-September meeting with our semi-finalists.

It has been most satisfying to see the overwhelming response we've had to this wonderful leadership opportunity and our School. Jerry and John have talked to or met nearly three dozen highly qualified school leaders throughout this process. It is safe to say that everyone on our Head Search Committee is very excited about the future of Oldfields School.

The Oldfields motto, Fortezza ed Umilitade e Largo Core, is at the heart of every conversation the Head Search Committee has. It is important to all of us to find a Head of School who embraces our history, mission, philosophy and values.

Thank you for your time and input. This is a group effort, and we couldn't do it without your help.
Wishing you all a happy and safe end of summer,

Lulu Laubenstein Good '72
Chair, Oldfields Head Search Committee
