Hello and welcome Alumni! I hope everyone is enjoying the Fall and looking forward to the holidays! Thank you to all our Class Ambassadors who participated in the year’s first program meeting in October. We are continuing the charge to track down old classmates, communicate on campus news, and collect Class Notes. We’ve welcomed five new Ambassadors this year and we are very excited to have them as part of our dynamic volunteer team.
We’ve started planning some amazing events for this year. On February 25, 2020, we are hosting Rose Helm’s first-ever East Coast Alumni Reception in New York City with special guest, Judy Hirsch. We’d love alumni from New York and the surrounding areas join us. More information will be sent out to you all soon. Our second annual Battle of the Blues fundraising competition with Curtis will run April 20-27, and we can’t wait to garner even more alumni participation than last year. As a reminder, the winner is determined by percentage of alumni donations, not the dollar amount. And last but certainly not least, we will host our third annual Family Fair Day Luncheon on May 3, 2020, for all alumni and their families on the top of the Ray Michaud Academic Center during the JTD Fair. It’s a fabulous way to connect with teachers, classmates, and enjoy a comfortable lunch in the shade.
There are other events throughout the upcoming year which Alumni have graciously been invited to. Beginning with the JTD Holiday Boutique in the gym on November 15, 2019. It’s a great opportunity to collect your holiday gifts for friends and family while also supporting the school. Followed up by the Parent’s Association Spring Speaker Series Event featuring Tina Payne Bryson on April 28, 2020.
We hope to see your friendly faces this year at these fabulous on-campus events and will be in touch with the Alumni Community and our Class Ambassadors throughout the school year with more information. We look forward to our next Class Ambassador Meeting on April 14, 2020, at 6:00pm in JTD Hall.
As always, thank you so much for letting me be of service to you all and to this school that we love so much.
