An convocation ceremony will open Providence School's 2017-18 school year 5:30-6:30 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 22, at First United Methodist Church, 305 E. Anapamu St. Classes begin for preschool-high school students the following morning.

Convocation (Latin for calling together) is a formal service, both academic and spiritual, officially launching the new school year. During the service the Providence community welcomes all its new students, faculty and families.

This event features short, charges from the head of school, Dr. Scott Lisea; student head prefect, Megan Varchetto; and three Upper School faculty members, Nate Alker, Max Beers and Carri Svoboda.

The convocation is open to all who would like to attend.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
