Head Master Andrew Holmgren hosted Calvert School’s Retired Faculty and Staff Luncheon on May 8, 2019, in the Middle School Board Room. Twenty-two attendees were present to meet and mingle with members of the School’s administration. As they arrived, these long-time friends and former colleagues warmly greeted one another with smiles, hugs, and handshakes. This biannual luncheon provides an opportunity for Calvert and its retired faculty and staff to stay connected, and it allows the School to celebrate the legacy of a very distinguished group of individuals who helped shape today’s Calvert. Mr. Holmgren addressed the group to share information and updates on the School, and he invited questions from the guests.
This year, former Head Master Merrill Hall made the trip to Baltimore from New Orleans, and he shared his activities since his days at Calvert with the group and visited a classroom to talk about folder papers. Several from the lunch walked the halls of the Lower School, saying hello to familiar faces. Cary Barton, our retired music teacher, took the opportunity to see her granddaughter, Stacey Ditlevson ‘05, teach her Tenth Age class. Isabel Craig ’55 wished her great niece, Westley Davis ‘23, a happy birthday.
