On Thursday evening, after a reception for Senior Parents in Lillard Living Room, Fall Family Weekend 2019 kicks off with a public event for the whole school community: a reading and book signing with Rachel Slade, the author of our summer community read Into the Raging Sea. The book opens so many discussion avenues, it should take us the weekend to get through them all!
After that intellectual start, and lunch, we will continue on Friday afternoon with an opportunity to visit some sample classes. Your pick: Civil Rights; Chemistry; Algebra II; Spanish; Wind Ensemble….or “A Study in Sherlock!” After class, several seminars with students and administrators will be available to inform families about what is going on at school, as well as to hear about opportunities, like trips planned for this year, to take advantage of. As always, practices on the fields and on the stages are open for families to enjoy.
As the afternoon turns cold and dark, join us by the hearth at the Quirk’s home. A reception before dinner is always popular, fortifying families for the evening activities which include stargazing in the observatory, and some family fun and games in the Beebe (who will be king of the pool table?)
On Saturday, parents and guardians are invited to enjoy mini-classes, following their students' schedules throughout the morning. After, the Class of ’21 and their families will be highly engaged in the College Program until 1:00 PM. All others can enjoy harbor tours, some fun in the MakerLab, or engage in conversation with Mr. Quirk, the International Student Co-Heads and/or the Directors of Equity and Inclusion. It will be a full morning whatever you choose.
Football kicks off the afternoon games at 1:00 PM and almost all teams are home. There is something for everyone to enjoy and we can’t wait to celebrate together the terrific start our school community has made this year! We look forward to being together!
