|April MS Communications Meeting|
We have a fantastic guest speaker on a very “popular” topic for our next MS Communications Meeting on Wedneday, April 8, at 8:00 a.m. in the Lyceum. Dr. Abigail Judge, a clinical and child forensic psychologist, will be at Derryfield to talk about adolescent's relationship with social media and their online decision-making. Dr. Judge has authored one book on the topic (and has another in progress) and regularly speaks to schools on topics such as “social media as social relationships” and “parenting through the digital revolution: low tech solutions to high tech dilemmas.” Later in the day she will be speaking to the middle school students and faculty. A professional and visionary leader in the field, you can find out more about her at www.abigailjudge.com. I hope to see as many of you as can make this meeting on Wednesday, April 8, at 8:00 a.m. Bring your insights and questions!

|Wisdom from the NAIS Conference|
When the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) announced last year that their annual conference was going to be held in Boston in 2015, we quickly went to work on how Derryfield could take advantage of the location. Ultimately, we were able to bring every DS faculty member to last week’s conference - an amazing commitment by the school. Although we made up less than one percent of the conference’s 5000+ attendees, our presence was felt. In addition to attending, six different DS faculty/administration members were involved in three different presentations. The primary goal, however...
