Parents’ Weekend is Here!

16-10_parents-weekendThis three-day immersive experience is a unique opportunity to spend a day in your child’s shoes, meeting teachers and advisors, and getting to know the School and other parents at the same time.

The Upper School Parents’ Association (USPA) hosts a number of events throughout the weekend to give parents a chance to meet (and rest!) between classes and meetings. The annual fall tradition kicks off Thursday evening with parent dinners or socials hosted by the USPA.

On Friday, parents follow their children through their daily class schedules, getting to meet their teachers and watch them in action. It is an inspirational – and exhausting! – way to see just how your children spend each day. Unwind afterward at the USPA reception in the RSG while students finish their after-school activities. Afterwards, boarding parents will have the opportunity to meet fellow dorm parents at separate socials in their respective dorms.

On Saturday, chili, cornbread and cold drinks are available for parents in the Student Center, following the morning presentations.

USPA events are made possible by your generous contributions of time, funding and gifts. Thank you! If you’re interested in helping, there are many opportunities to do so. Please connect with a volunteer at one of the events, come to a meeting, or see our webpage for more information.
