Fall Family Weekend was a great opportunity to create and strengthen connections across the Tabor community. We hope our constituents enjoyed the beautiful weekend on campus last week, October 13-15, 2022!
Events kicked off Thursday night with a dinner for the parents and guardians of the Class of 2023. All weekend long student art was on display in the Braitmayer lobby, and families had the opportunity to meet with their student’s advisors to reflect on the year thus far and to look ahead.
On Friday, the day began with a gathering for families in Wickenden Chapel, which was followed by coffee and refreshments. Then, they had the opportunity to attend a Diversity, Equity, and Belonging discussion with Associate Head of School Dr. Tyrone Black. Afterwards, there was a Conversation with Head of School Tony Jaccaci offered in Lyndon South. As the day went on, the rain drizzled to a stop and the clouds parted to reveal sunshine over Sippican Harbor just in time for afternoon practices and activities. Friday evening there was a parent and guardian reception held at the Head of School House. Lastly, Seawolves and their families cheered on the Boys’ Varsity Soccer team as they competed against Roxbury Latin School in Friday Night Lights. Under the pink and orange setting sky, the soccer team played a great game and took the win 2-0.
Saturday began with TX Special Olympics doing athlete development on Duffy Turf. Across campus in the Marine and Nautical Science Center, Captain Virginia Land McGuire, Director of Nautical Science, talked with families about the significance of Tabor’s unique nautical offerings and how students can test their knowledge and apply their skills in real life situations. Meanwhile, the College Counseling Office hosted a college kick-off for the parents and guardians of the Class of 2024 where they shared resources and insight on the college application process. Around noon, Tabor hosted the Athletic Hall of Fame, formally recognizing the Class of 2020 and Class of 2022 inductees. You can read more about this year’s Athletic Hall of Fame here.
To conclude Fall Family Weekend on Saturday, Tabor’s extended community was invited to campus to celebrate a favorite tradition, Tabor Day! Students, families, alumni, and friends of Tabor all gathered on the turf fields to cheer on the cross country, field hockey, volleyball, soccer, and football teams. As the various athletic competitions took place, those in attendance enjoyed sideline snacks, like chili and chowder, and treats, like cookies and warm cider donuts, from the Flour Girls Food Truck. After Seawolves changed out of their uniforms, and the stands began to clear, students went back to their homes and their dorms for the rest of Fall Long Weekend, returning to classes the following Wednesday, October 19.
