Coffee With Kirk

We love coffee here in the Seattle area, so it should come as no surprise that coffee takes center stage at St. Thomas School as well. You may have already discovered that our Coffee Bar welcomes parents and guests from the moment they enter the school.

In addition, the Head of School invites all parents to join in casual conversation (with coffee, of course) several times throughout the school year. These “Coffees with Kirk” are often open-ended conversations with no set agenda. Parents are welcome to engage in dialogue about any aspect of school life. Other key administrators or teachers join on occasion as well. Coffees with Kirk are scheduled on the following dates:

  • Wednesday, October 5, 2016
  • Wednesday, December 14, 2016
  • Wednesday, March 22 2017
  • Wednesday, May 10, 2017

In addition to the open agendas, Coffees with Kirk are occasionally organized around a particular theme. These themes often emerge from previous conversations, suggestions from parents, or are designed to advance parents’ understanding about a particular topic or new direction.

Truly, Coffee with Kirk is one of the best ways to get to know the Head of School and to get a sense of what is on his mind and on the minds of other parents.
