A fitting quote as we congregate for our first faculty meeting of the school year.

Georgia Nelson in 1927 declared, “Instead of the deadly uninteresting school of the past, Graland pursues the special joy of learning.”

Tom Noel in Rosemary Fetter’s book celebrating the 75th anniversary of the school added the following to Miss Nelson’s words: “Graland recruits and retains. . .  master teachers. A zest for learning . . . still guides  Graland. The school still chases the progressive educational dreams of Misses Laird, Braswell, and Nelson to enable every student to climb -- with glee-- over life’s stumbling blocks. Graland Country Day School’s story is a fairy tale of how well and joyfully school can be taught. . .”
