Headmaster Letter

Dear North Phoenix Prep Families,

At a recent faculty meeting, we viewed a short film version of The Man Who Planted Trees, a story by Jean Giono.  I showed this brief film because it's a great metaphor for the educational work that we do at North Phoenix Prep.

The story begins when a young Frenchman hikes into "a landscape of unparalleled desolation" where coal mining has robbed the land of its fertility. There are no trees.  There is no water.  There is only a cruel wind that whips across the barren heath.  Thirsty and tired, the hiker encounters a shepherd who gives him water, food, and shelter.  That evening, the shepherd's vocation is revealed: he is planting trees.  One hundred acorns every day.

Later in life, the hiker returns to the same region several times and discovers it has been transformed by the shepherd's labor. The acorns become tall oaks.  Though the locals cannot conceive of how a forest could have sprung up, life has nonetheless returned to the once barren moorland.  It is a fertile land full of vitality and happiness--all because of the shepherd who planted trees.

Modern life is not without its desolate landscapes.  It is also not without its shepherds.  I want to thank our faculty for their dedication to planting trees in the souls of our students.  Their humble and steady focus on the future of our civilization leads them to shepherd our students every day.  Through their partnership with our families, our teachers are truly transforming the culture--one student at a time.

With Devotion,
Headmaster Weinhold
