Lori Reuter Named Director of Strategic Initiatives
Pine Lake Preparatory is pleased to announce that Ms. Lori Reuter has been named Strategic Initiatives Director in addition to her role as Upper School Assistant Principal. In this new role, Ms. Reuter will be the Director of Pine Lake Prep’s campus-wide STEM and Fine Arts Curriculum and Programming.
“Ms. Reuter successfully led a partnership between Pine Lake Prep and DiscoveryEd, which is a major initiative to transform how our Upper School teachers teach; shifting from pen to paper note-taking to students actively participating in their learning,” said Chris Terrill, Head of School. “We are excited for her to be a driving force in the continued growth and development of these programs.”
Ms. Reuter has been a passionate educator for more than 20 years. She has a Masters degree in Environmental Education and School Administration. She has served the Pine Lake Prep community for the past nine years as both a science teacher and administrator.
Ms. Reuter has a demonstrated commitment to academic excellence, teaching Advanced Placement courses, serving as a cooperating teacher for the University of Connecticut and mentoring and training fellow educators. In addition, she has been a professional dance instructor and has been heavily involved in the musical productions at Pine Lake Prep.
"She believes strongly in the connections between the arts and sciences and we are confident that under her direction these programs will continue to flourish and branch out into our greater community," Terrill said.
Spain - Morocco Trip
Join us on Pine Lake's trip to Spain and Morocco in April 2017! We will travel through central, south, and eastern Spain while visiting the cities of Barcelona, Valencia, Granada, Sevilla, Córdoba, Madrid, and Tetouan (Morocco). Students will experience new cultures as they visit important landmarks such as the beautiful Alhambra (palace) in Granada, Cordoba's famous Mezquita (mosque), the Prado Museum in Madrid and Gaudi's masterpiece - La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. Students will take a ferry across the Strait of Gibraltar for a full day excursion to Morocco. Here they will explore the city of Tetouan where they will visit a bazaar, a spice shop, and enjoy an authentic Moroccan lunch. Engaging activities will include attending a Flamenco show in Barcelona, spending a morning at a school in Sevilla interacting with High School students, discovering Granada through an interactive “city challenge,” and having ample time to do some shopping. All this for an amazing price!
Parents are also invited to join us on this adventure!
