Thousands of students.
Hundreds of teachers.
June 13, 2013
If you agree with the idea that we stand on the shoulders of those who go before us, then nearly 1,000 members of the Town community were all swanning in the Milky Way on June 13th at the 100th Anniversary Celebration.
Imagine the pride our founders would have experienced if they could have witnessed how their nascent idea of a school had evolved over the past 100 years. Think of all those who have gone before us – those in attendance and those long gone or too far away. So much has changed in terms of our physical plant, curriculum and various other details and yet what actually defines our school remains essentially the same. Reverberating throughout every room in use and on every face present was a testament to a dream achieved and celebrated.
From the steel band that greeted us on the sidewalk, to the glamorous blue and white drapery throughout the school, to live streaming the evening, to the photo sessions and photo booth, delectable food and drink, our singers and conductors, all the Heads of School toasts, to Lynne Tarnopol’s incredible historical Town footnote, to the faculty who came back and those who are always present, to our recent grads and our older ones, to past and present parents, to our maintenance staff and security detail all guided by our crack development crew – we were spoiled rotten and toasted better than I think even we imagined possible.
We are honored to have headed an extraordinary 100th Anniversary Committee – a group of alumni/ae, past and present faculty, parents, past parents and even grandparents who devoted themselves to reaching out and encouraging everyone to celebrate this important milestone. The celebration came to life in a way that exemplified the meaning of “Town Spirit.”
With great affection,
