It is my pleasure to take this first opportunity to greet the community and tell you how much my family and I are looking forward to moving to Albuquerque and becoming part of the Sandia Prep family. It was apparent to me from the first time I visited Sandia Prep last November that this is a special place. It is clear that the school is not only a first rate academic institution, but more importantly, it is a nurturing community that prepares young people to become respectful, responsible citizens. I am humbled by the loving welcome that my family and I have received by so many people. I especially wish to thank Ms. Joyce Whelchel, Mr. Pat Allen, the Board of Trustees, the administration, office staff and faculty for their generous and gracious support during these past several months. I am blessed to be working with such a dedicated group of people.
I recognize that taking the position of Head of School in such a dynamic place as Sandia Prep will be a tremendous challenge, and I am keenly cognizant of the responsibility that I have accepted. It is, therefore, imperative that I enter this first year prepared to listen and learn. This school has a rich tradition and a distinctive culture into which I must immerse myself. During this first year, I will spend a great deal of time asking questions and observing the routines and rituals of the school. I want to understand what we are doing and why we are doing it. If I am to lead a community of learning, I must be the lead learner.
This being said, one area of the school’s operation on which I will focus during my first year is communication. Schools, by design, are incredibly busy, dynamic places, and the challenge for administration and faculty is maintaining balance. We want to set high expectations for our students, but not overwhelm them. We want to keep them engaged, but not drive them to physical and emotional exhaustion. We want to teach them to be responsible, independent learners, but not leave them with the sense that they have been abandoned. And, finally, we want our students to approach their studies with earnestness, while at the same time finding joy in the experience of learning. In order to achieve this balance, it is vital that we cultivate positive working relationships and keep open the lines of communication between all parties -- students, teachers, and parents. My task is to find out how that happens now, and to support the administration’s and faculty’s efforts to further develop those lines of communication for the future.
It is going to be an exciting year, and I truly am looking forward to the important work ahead. Brenda, the girls, and I will arrive in Albuquerque on June 22, and I will be in the office soon after that. Please know that my door is open, and I hope that you will feel at ease to come in, pull up a chair, and share some thoughts.
Enjoy the summer.

Sandia Prep partners with ASSIST, a leading foreign exchange program. ASSIST students are selected with great care from 18 or more different countries through competitive national scholarship competitions in each country, pre-screening by in-country leaders, and interviews with ASSIST personnel. This fall, Sandia Prep will again welcome 2 foreign exchange students through the ASSIST program. We are seeking Sandia Prep Upper School families to host these 2 exchange students for the 2015-2016 school year.
Katrina Minx will join us from Germany as a 10th grader next year. Katrina has high honors at her Bavarian school, where she is enrolled in a demanding scientific program. Her areas of academic interest include mathematics, physics, chemistry, computer science and English. She speaks English freely and easily and enjoys playing clarinet in an ensemble. She is keen on photography, painting, and digital art and would like to take part in a drama production. Katrina is an enthusiastic handball competitor who enjoys teaching the game to younger children, and she enjoys babysitting. She also enjoys skiing, snowboarding and rock climbing and has past experience playing soccer. Her interviewer shared the following observation: "Earnest, thoughtful... very insightful, poised, confident, engaging... It is a pleasure to recommend this well grounded and interesting young woman."
Cagla Yuksel will join us from Turkey as an 11th grader next year. Cagla has a "very engaging personality, is enthusiastic, confident, ... has a cheerful smile and a good sense of humor... This girl is a star. She will do very good things with her school year in America," according to her interviewers. Cagla is an outstanding scholar with high honors and good English speaking skills who is interested in languages and hopes to study medicine. Her academic interests include mathematics, the sciences, and social studies. Cagla has several interests and talents: she plays guitar and drums, has led the drama club and the school's Model UN team, was elected class president, and enjoys volunteering. Her sports interests include volleyball and archery.
Here’s what one Sandia Prep parent had to say about her family’s prior experience hosting an ASSIST student:
“As a host family, we opened our home to a complete stranger, but in the process we opened our hearts to a new daughter and sister. The bond that formed during the school year is one that will last a lifetime; we will forever include our exchange student as a part of our family. I know that our student gained an insight into American life and learned the customs and traditions of our family, but I never expected to gain new traditions from her. Would we do it again? In a heartbeat!”
If your family might be interested in hosting Katrina or Cagla next year, or if you would like more information about hosting, please contact Laura Fitzpatrick, Director of Admission, at email@example.com or 338.3026. Thank you.

Summer is here, all finals are complete, and our seniors have graduated!
It has been a wonderful experience serving as your Parents Association President. I have had the opportunity to work with many outstanding SPS volunteers. I want to extend a special thank-you to Susan Walton, whose support has been invaluable.
The Parents Association put on no less than 20 events this year. Through various initiatives, we paid for all our budgeted projects in support of the School during the year — and still generated $18,000 to donate back to the school at the end of this year.
Our donations include:
Outdoor Leadership Program
Funds for the Library to purchase books
Drug and Alcohol Education Speaker
Funds for Framing Senior Artwork
The majority of the money raised comes from your support of the Supply Store. The Supply Store has very competitive pricing, is a convenient place to buy supplies, and helps our School! The Back To School Supply Sale in August and the Sandia Prep Business Directory are also important sources of revenue that allow the Parents Association to support the School throughout the year.
I want to thank our volunteers one last time for all your help throughout the year. Best of luck to Vicki Gale, our SPSPA President next year.
We appreciate all your support!
Kathleen Atkin, SPSPA President 2014-15
