On Wednesday evening the HMS Board of Trustees gathered for our monthly Board meeting. Some highlights:
- We practiced our fiduciary responsibilities by listening to a presentation from our independent financial auditor regarding the full financial audit done this summer. We are happy to report that the school is in good financial standing, with no major outstanding financial issues and strong consistency in our finances from year to year. We also reviewed and approved the required IRS Form 990, to be filed on time (!!) by the November 15 deadline. We are grateful to have such strong, competent financial leadership in the HMS Administrative Team!
- We continued our work with Trustee education in a few different areas, discussing the mentorship program we implemented this year and use/structure of the Board shared drive.
- Annual Fund is coming up! We made our pledges. Stay tuned for more information from Roselle about exciting Annual Fund activities!
Thanks to everybody who came to Grandparents and Special Friends Day! We were delighted by the turnout and the delicious treats, and were blown away by the composure and knowledge of the student panel. We are looking forward to catching up with you during the Annual Fund week, and at the upcoming parent workshops (see below for more info and to RSVP).
Stay in touch!
