Dear City and Country School Community,

It is with great joy that I write to you as the new Principal of City and Country School. I am honored to join this vibrant community, and I am eager to begin getting to know all of you. I want to begin by expressing my gratitude for the warm welcome I have received since my arrival. The year ended on a high note at my former school, Milton Academy, and I now bring into the summer great energy and enthusiasm for my new role. My family and I have begun our transition to our new home and are thrilled to be back in New York City.

Although this is a time of great excitement for our community, my tenure as Principal begins during a time of uncertainty in our country. The last few weeks have brought forth examples of setbacks in civil rights that were achieved through decades of activism and heroism. In the face of recent political movements, our commitment to progressive education becomes even more vital. Together, we will ensure that our educational community remains a place where students develop the skills necessary to work towards a more just and inclusive society. Now, more than ever, we must remain steadfast in our commitment to progressive education.

As we embark on this new journey together, I recognize that building a strong community requires time, effort, and open communication. This year will be dedicated to getting to know each and every one of you, understanding your perspectives, and collaborating to build a shared vision for C&C. I am committed to creating opportunities for dialogue, fostering inclusivity, and ensuring that every voice is heard. Your input and insights are invaluable, and I look forward to hearing from each of you about your hopes and dreams for our institution. 

Thank you for the warm welcome and for entrusting me with the privilege of leading this remarkable school. I am filled with anticipation and excitement for the journey that lies ahead.

With warm regards,

Frank Patti
