Music teacher Robelyn Schrade-James died on October 18, and the School was overtaken with the shock and sadness of losing one of its most beloved teachers. Many of the Lower and Middle School boys were inconsolable, and up on the fourth floor the older boys went about their days quietly, very, very quietly. Boys also covered a wall on the Middle School floor with thoughts about Robelyn. One first grader said that Ms. Schrade-James had taught him the school song and that every time he sings it he will think of her. Many will. For nearly all of the boys were introduced to music sitting on the floor around Robelyn’s piano in the music room; little boys enchanted by her own child-like innocence and her wonder at sounds they could make together. Not just sitting either but marching and stopping and starting and gliding and spinning and clapping and stomping—the utter joy of making music for the first time.
Robelyn touched the adults just as she touched the boys, with her playing and with the fullness of her heart, and even as she became sicker, she continued to have enough for everyone as she embraced all of us, all the School. Several have talked about the emptiness they feel, listening for her piano, for her sweet voice, and hearing only the silence that comes with such a loss. A colleague captured another, less forlorn mood of the School: “Her spirit continues to enliven the spaces she walked. I don't think I've ever experienced a person so alive in death.”
