I just want to take a moment to thank you all for your continued dedication to our beloved school. These times are unprecedented and we appreciate your patience and your commitment to ensuring the health and well-being of our community. We are so looking forward to when we can all gather again as a multi-generational group of Greyhounds. Until then, please consider submitting a Class Note, updating your contact information, or making a donation to our Annual Fund. We hope to feel connected to you during these times of physical distance.
