Parents Weekend

Dear Parents,

We look forward to welcoming you for our 2016 Parents Weekend, Friday evening through Sunday, October 28-30. Please see the Schedule of Events for the weekend. You may find a List of Nearby Hotels should you need overnight accommodations.

The weekend is quite simply an exhibition of the spirit, energy, intention, and community of St. Andrew’s, and I urge you to come, meet our faculty, talk with other parents, and most importantly, find time on our beautiful campus to talk to your son or daughter.

The athletic and arts programs will be in full flight over the weekend, with games, plays, and performances scheduled from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon. You will have the chance to meet with your child’s teachers, both in individual conferences scheduled on Saturday and Sunday and in more informal settings throughout the weekend. Please encourage your child to sign you up for conferences on Saturday morning, Saturday afternoon, or Sunday afternoon.

The meeting at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday gives me the chance to welcome you, say a few words about the School year and answer any questions you may have. I will be available throughout the weekend for private conferences as well. Please call me if you wish to make an appointment to see me.

On Friday and Saturday evening, our theater program will present the play, Radium Girls, by D. W. Gregory.

Please complete the Meal Reservation Form at your earliest convenience. We want to be sure our dining room preparations are accurate.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
