Happy New School Year!
My name is Evan Fryer and I am the Senior House Parent for Bolton House this year. My wife, Kelsey, and I live right here in Bolton House and can’t wait for the start of a fantastic school year and welcoming all the new and returning students.
This is my 11th year involved in the Boarding Program at SMUS and we are very excited about contributing to the unique culture of our house this year. In Bolton House alone, we have students arriving from over 16 different nationalities and even more cultures and identities from around the world.
This summer, Kelsey and I have been travelling around Europe for our honeymoon to celebrate our wedding earlier this summer. Kelsey and I (as well as our dog Finnegan) have fully committed our lives to the boarding lifestyle and take the responsibility of looking after your child very seriously. We want to ensure that your child’s time in Bolton House is rewarding, safe, enjoyable, and comfortable, while also doing our best to push them to learn, grow, and take on challenges.
I also teach in the Mathematics Department at the Senior School and coach the Sr. Boys Soccer Team, so I may get to see your child during the school day too! There are so many wonderful opportunities for our students in the first few weeks of school, so we really encourage them to sign-up for lots of activities and get involved!
All of us in Bolton can’t wait for another exciting year at SMUS! We hope that you return to this blog throughout the school year to see what we are up to! We try to get something new posted every Sunday night 🙂
