    - From Snow Delays to Snowmen:

    What do you do with snow and a day off school? Build a Harrisburg Academy snowman Andreas Christensen Chelsea Jersey , of course!

    During the recent snowy weather, Academy Upper School students had the opportunity to participate in "the snowman competition," developed by Lisa Nazar, Upper School math teacher. With the snowstorm looming, students were encouraged to take their possible day off to build a snowman featuring the Academy's "Circle H" logo.

    Students were judged in four categories: Most Unusual, Best Use of Props, Best Use of the "Circle H", and Best Overall. To make things more interesting, "cool" prizes were offered, including a Subway meal delivered to your school lunch table.

    The Academy's Upper School is, of course, an excellent liberal arts education with a rigorous college preparatory course, but it's more than that. It's fun, too!

    - A Blueprint for the Academy's Future:

    In creating the model for our strategic planning, the administration made a few key decisions. First, we endeavored to engage our entire school community in the process. This approach allows all Academy community stakeholders, as well as friends of the Academy, to provide feedback. We also decided to shorten the strategic planning timeline from five years to just three. This allows the Academy to more quickly adapt and react to the rapidly changing educational world in which we function.

    At the core of the strategic planning process is our Planning Committee, made up of trustees, parents, faculty, and administrators. This group attends each of the strategic planning meetings and engages in the many group conversations that generate a whole host of innovative ideas and suggestions.

    Our first few strategic planning meetings have resulted in thought-provoking conversations and creative ideas. Each week the dynamics are different, as new parents and community members join the discussion. By using one broad question each week, the meetings become our own Academy "think tank," as multiple groups wrestle with the same question but come up with radically different feedback. The five guiding questions used in our strategic planning model are as follows:

    How do we achieve the long term enrollment goals at the Academy?
    What internal improvements and partnerships with other organizations (including global ones) can be made to the academic, extracurricular, and co-curricular programs to provide an experience of excellence for our students? (April 24)

    How does the Academy best demonstrate its value to parents, alumni, and the greater Harrisburg community? (April 30)

    How does the Academy achieve the goals of our new Comprehensive Campaign and continue to build a culture of philanthropy? (May 15)

    How does the Academy attract, cultivate, and retain its most talented faculty to achieve the mission of Harrisburg Academy and provide our students with the 21st century skills they need? (May 22)

    Please join us for our two final conversations. Don't miss your chance to have your fingerprint on the blueprint for the Academy's future.

    UNITED NATIONS, Sept. 18 (Xinhua) -- United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres Monday stressed the role of the UN to help reshape "unproductive and unrewarding" finance and redirect investment to creating a better world for all.



    "The choices we make on finance will be critical," Guterres told a special event held at the UN Headquarters in New York on financing for global development goals as the high-level week of the United Nations General Assembly gets underway.



    Guterres said that the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which was adopted by UN Member States in September 2015, are a blueprint for building an inclusive, sustainable fair globalization.



    "We can choose to bemoan the lack of financing for the 2030 Agenda in a world awash with so much unproductive and unrewarding finance. Or we can grasp the opportunity to reshape finance, according to our urgent, collective needs," he said. "The choice is clear. Let us invest in the 2030 Agenda and finance a better world for all."



    However, today's global financial system, which manages some 300 trillion U.S. dollars in financial assets, is simply not fit for purpose, the UN chief said, recalling that the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, adopted in 2015 at an international conference in the Ethiopian capital on financing for development, highlights the importance of being innovative in leveraging resources and financing for development.



    The UN's three-part strategy for enhancing its support to financing the 2030 Agenda would help achieve short- and medium-term results, he said.



    The Secretary-General said that he will lead UN efforts to ensure that the objectives of the 2030 Agenda are fully reflected in international economic and financial policies by working closely with key inter-governmental platforms, such as the G20.



    Second, he will reform the UN development system to strengthen its country teams, and third, he will champion key international initiatives that can harness large-scale changes in financing and financial system development, such as in the fields of digitalization and climate finance and in cooperating with major investment initiatives.



    Also addressing the event was Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed, who said that trillions of dollars need to be mobilized a year by tapping into the savings of citizens around the world, official development assistance (ODA), domestic financing and the world's financial system.
