Message from the headmaster

"This Is What We Believe; Therefore, This Is What You Will See."

“这就是我们所相信的,因此,这也是你们将看到的。”


When we typically use the term "Golden Age", we are referring to an idyllic imaginary time of prosperity and happiness in our past. In this period in our history, people performed their skills and achieved success at peak levels, and most of the time, we only realize we have lived through a Golden Age once it has passed. However, the events that we celebrated in Fuller Hall last Monday provided too much evidence for us to ignore the fact that we are living in a Golden Age of Academy student performances.

通常我们使用“黄金时代”这个词时,指的是一个想象中的田园般繁荣和幸福的时代。在我们历史上的这一时期,人们在巅峰时期充分发挥自己的技能并创造了黄金时代,而我们只是经历了一个消逝的黄金时代。然而,上星期一我们在Fuller大厅举行的庆祝活动让我们无法忽视这样一个事实:我们生活在一个人才济济的黄金时代。

Consider these achievements that we celebrated that morning:

下面是我们学院学生获得的一系列成就:

1. Our FIRST Robotics team won their New England district competition as part of an alliance with schools from Rhode Island and Connecticut. In doing so, they needed to figure out how to rig their robot so that it could still perform its tasks despite having key parts that were broken earlier in the competition.

作为代表罗德岛和康涅狄格州学校联盟的一份子,我们的FIRST机器人团队赢得了新英格兰地区的比赛。为了取得这样的好成绩,他们需要弄清楚如何装配他们的机器人,以便它仍然可以执行它的任务,尽管在比赛过程中一些关键部位的零件已经被破坏了。

2. Our Science Olympiad Team won the Vermont State Championship, earning them the first back-to-back trips to the national competition in school history.

我们的科学奥林匹克队赢得了佛蒙特州冠军,这是他们在学校历史上第一次连续参加全国大赛。

3. Our Math Team placed four students in the MathCON finals and five more as alternates, and they will head to compete in Chicago for the first time in school history.

我们的数学团队有4名学生入围MathCON决赛,还有另外5名学生做为候补队员参赛,他们将代表学校首次前往芝加哥参加决赛。

4. Our Girls' Basketball Team won back-to-back Division 1 State Championships for the first time in school history, and senior captain Sadie Stetson won Gatorade Player of the Year for the third year in a row—another historic first for our school.

我校女子篮球队首次获得学校历史上连续两届一级州立锦标赛冠军,队长Sadie Stetson连续第三年获得年度Gatorade最佳球员,这是我校又一次具有历史性意义的冠军。

5. Our Boys' Alpine Ski Team presented their trophy as back-to-back Division 1 State Champions for the first time in school history, and the boys' and girls' teams presented our first-ever Combined Alpine Division 1 State Championship trophy.

我们的男子高山滑雪队获得学校历史上首个一级国家锦标赛冠军,男子和女子团队都获得了学校首个高山一级国家锦标赛冠军。

These accomplishments are part of an impressive array of student performances this winter. Our Girls’ Indoor Track Team won its fifth consecutive Division 1 State Championship (another historic first), and we have had a number of individual champions in wrestling and track and field. In fact, repeat weight-throw champion Dillon Ryan was the only Vermont athlete to compete in the national competition in New York City. Our Boys’ Basketball Team had continued the winning streak by handily winning their quarterfinal game. In addition, our Boys’ Indoor Track team missed repeating as champions by just one point, and our girls, gymnastics team only lost their championship by two points. Outside of athletics, Sam Bulpin moved on to the Poetry Out Loud finals, Jianing Wu advanced in the Rotary Speech Contest, and Olivia Robinson and Anzhelika Nastashchuk won national Scholastic Art and Writing awards for their creative writing and photography, respectively.

这些成就只是整个冬季令人印象深刻的学生成就的一部分。我们的女子室内田径队连续第五次获得一级联赛冠军(又一次历史性的第一次),我们在摔跤、田径等项目上获得了多个个人冠军。事实上,举重冠军Dillon Ryan是佛蒙特州唯一一位参加纽约市全国比赛的运动员。我们的男篮在四分之一决赛中轻松取胜,延续了连胜的势头。此外,我们的男子室内田径队仅以1分惜别冠军赛,而我们的女子体操队仅以2分与冠军失之交臂。除了体育运动之外,Sam Bulpin挺进诗歌“Poetry Out Loud”决赛,Jianing Wu赢得了Rotary演讲比赛荣誉,Olivia Robinson和Anzhelika Nastashchuk分别以其创作和摄影作品获得了国家学术艺术和写作奖。

Also in the room celebrating this wide array of winter winners were fall athletes who had won our school's first-ever field hockey championship and who had represented our school in back-to-back Division 1 Soccer Championships for the first time in our history. They were joined by the cast and crew of Legally Blonde, by all accounts one the finest musical productions in the history of Academy Theatre. Unbeknown to all of us, they were to be joined by two other groups of history-making winners this weekend: the cast and crew of Just So Stories, the first play directed by Chef Gerry Prevost to move on to the state finals of the annual Vermont One-Act Festival, and our Boys' Basketball Team who won the Division 1 State Championship, marking the first time in school history that both the boys' and girls' teams have won the Division 1 Championships in the same year.

此外,和我们一起庆祝这些冬季成就的是秋季赛季的运动员们,他们赢得了我们学校的首个曲棍球锦标赛冠军,首次代表学校参加一级足球锦标赛。学院戏剧史上最优秀的音乐作品之一--Legally Blonde的演员和工作人员邀请他们加入其中。我们不知道的是,Legally Blonde剧组将在本周末与另外两组创造历史的团队一起庆祝。他们分别是Just So Stories的演员和剧组成员,由主厨Gerry Prevost执导的第一部入围佛蒙特州一年一度的独幕艺术节总决赛的戏剧。另外一个团队是我们的男篮,他们赢得了一分区的国家冠军。而在学校历史上,男队和女队是第一次在同一年赢得了甲级联赛冠军。

Suffice it to say that a large percentage of those gathered in Fuller Hall had experienced (or would soon experience) what it feels like to perform at one's peak at some point already this year. When I added in the excellence of Senior Capstone Day, other playoff teams, Scholastics Arts Awards, Presidential Scholars, National Merit Scholars, AP Scholars, and any number of other personal triumphs, I was blown away by the achievements of this student body—and it is only March!

可以说,在Fuller大厅聚集的观众中,有很大一部分人今年已经体验过(或很快就会体验到)巅峰时刻。当我看到同学们在十二年级Capstone Day的优异表现、其他季后赛球队获得的荣誉,还有学术艺术奖、总统奖学金、国家功勋奖学金、AP奖学金以及其他个人成就奖时,我被这个学生团体的成就所震惊,而现在才三月!

In reflecting on how we got to this place, I went back to the fall of 2008. In August of that year, Assistant Head for Campus Life Beth Choiniere introduced the idea of "core covenants". These covenants are more than promises or mottos; they are value-based bonds between people that say, "this is what we believe; therefore, this is what you will see." We adopted three core covenants for our athletic program: Commitment, Competiveness, and Classiness. We pledged—no matter where we were or who we were with or what we were doing—to be committed to our team, compete to improve and win, and show respect, sportsmanship, and appreciation to all. Every year, at every Meet the Coaches Night and in every orientation and leadership meeting, we refer to these core covenants. They have become, over the past decade, defining traits for our school. This definition of excellence has empowered students in all areas to dream big and not only imagine themselves as champions but also to see a pathway towards that goal.

要说我们是如何才能到达今天这个高度,我想起了2008年秋天。那年8月,校园生活助理主管Beth Choiniere提出了“核心契约”的概念。这些契约不仅仅是承诺或座右铭;它们是人们之间的价值纽带:“这就是我们所相信的;因此,这就是你将看到的。”我们对体育项目采取三个核心契约:投入、竞争和优雅。我们承诺,无论我们身在何处,与谁在一起,或我们所做的一切,都将致力于我们的团队,为提升自我和赢得荣誉而竞争,并时刻保持敬意、气度和感谢。每年,在每一次教练会议之夜,在每一次入职培训和领导力会议上,我们都会提到这些核心约定。在过去的十年里,它们已经成为我们学校的特色。这一卓越的定义使得各个领域的学生都有能力追梦,不仅把自己想象成冠军,而且能清晰地看到通往这一目标的道路。

I am sure we will have even more successes in the coming months. Our AP test scores are annually top in the state, our math and robotics teams are participating in further competitions, our SkillsUSA students take home numerous medals at the state and national level, we have another Senior Capstone Day coming up, and I am sure our spring teams will be in the mix at playoff time in their various sports. Amidst all of this success, it is important to remember that some students might never get celebrated in Fuller Hall or raise a championship trophy; for some it is a victory to get to school and complete their work. But I believe if they too adopt the core covenants—being committed to the people around them and to the task at hand, striving to do their best and always improve, and treating others with respect, fairness, and appreciation—they too will achieve great things. This is what we believe; therefore, this is what you will see.

我相信在接下来的几个月里我们会取得更大的成功。我们的AP考试成绩每年都是州内最高的,我们的数学和机器人团队正在准备下一场比赛,我们的SkillsUSA学生获得了多枚州级和国家级奖牌,我们又迎来了十二年级Capstone Day,我相信我们的春季团队在季后赛时会在各自领域中取得不俗的成绩。在所有这些成功的过程中,我们也要知道,有些学生可能永远不会在Fuller大厅里得到庆祝或冠军奖杯,对他们来说,顺利完成学业就是胜利。但我相信,如果他们也采纳了核心契约,努力做到最好并不断改进,对他人表示尊重、大气和赞赏,他们也会取得伟大的成就。这就是我们所相信的,因此,这就是你们将看到的。
