Welcome to Heads Up, a blogging experiment that aims to:
- connect the people, parts, and principles of Durham Academy;
- share ideas about learning and human development;
- spotlight a few of the many wondrous things I get to see every day at Durham Academy.
Thanks for reading the posts below — and sending news, links and ideas worth sharing.
Michael Ulku-Steiner, Head of School
Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these students from the swift completion of their appointed studies.
As flurries near the Triangle, I feel the pressure mounting from student lobbyists. Some students, like the one pictured above, are willing to brave blizzards to take their math quizzes.
We continue to monitor the radar images and weather forecasts for the Triangle, where snowfalls could range from 0 to 6 inches. We'll communicate a decision regarding today's schedule by 11:00 am.
