Check out what we've been up to!
From the Chicago Public Schools to Prince George’s County Public Schools, InLight’s network of student changemakers is wide and connected by a single mission: to tell untold stories and change the status quo. InLight’s Executive Director Ishaan Barrett ’22 and Director of Development Emma Vaughan ’22 have been instrumental in helping to expand InLight’s reach across the country and in November secured a $1,000 operating grant from Greater Washington Community Foundation.
When the calendar turns to February at Maret, the hallways in the Upper School begin to fill with posters of Black trailblazers, kicking off a jam-packed Black History Month.
Congratulations to our winter sports teams and coaches on another outstanding season filled with excitement and accomplishments!
This year, Chip Krese ’23 played at Carnegie Hall for the second time. As a ninth-grader, he played in the Honors Band, and this February he was selected, along with other young musicians from around the world, to play in the Honors Orchestra under the direction of conductor Kirt Mosier.
“I’m one of those people who love doing a little bit of everything,” says Maret art teacher and alumna Carlotta Hester ’86. Anyone familiar with her exquisitely constructed, mixed-media lightboxes and paintings will find her most recent work, “Rapture,” shown at Georgetown’s Addison/Ripley Gallery this past winter, a significant development.
It has been a while since the Maret community experienced the exuberant release of a great musical. Last week’s performances were at capacity, and Friday and Saturday nights sold out far in advance. Nobody wanted to miss Grease.

You don’t always know where your life is going to end up, but sometimes it comes full circle. Michael Haft ‘05 had such a story to tell Upper School students at an assembly in November. Haft started his story in Mr. Fergusen’s woodworking studio at Maret. From there, he connected the dots of his unpredictable journey to Washington University in St. Louis; then to Nawa, Afghanistan, where he led a platoon of Marines; and then back home to DC where he co-founded local mainstay Compass Coffee.
