Dear Friends,

I hope this finds you well and happily engaged in the excitement and challenges of the new year. As you know, we are currently well underway with the search for the new Head of School at Plymouth Meeting Friends School. I am delighted to report that the Search Committee has identified four candidates who will be on campus this month. As a member of the PMFS community, you are warmly invited to four open meetings, one for each finalist.

The meeting schedule is as follows:

Candidate 1: Wednesday, Sept 12 at 6:30 pm in the Meetinghouse
Candidate 2: Monday, Sept 17 at 6:30 pm in the Meetinghouse
Candidate 3: Thursday Sept 20 at 6:30 pm in the Meetinghouse
Candidate 4: Tuesday Sept 25 at 6:30 pm in the Steinbright Building (gym)

These open meetings are intended to allow the candidate an opportunity to make a brief presentation followed by a question and answer session with community members. Afterwards, you will be asked for input and feedback, which will then be transmitted to the Search Committee for final discernment. The Committee’s job is to bring forth a recommendation to the School Committee for final consideration.

The PMFS online calendar will include updates as needed, so please check there for any schedule changes ( I really encourage you to come; your feedback is invaluable in this process.

In appreciation and gratitude,

John Gilliland
Clerk of the HOS Search Committee
