Hello,

We send our sincere thanks to everyone who made a gift to the Parents Fund this year. Your support helped raise more than $2 million to benefit our students through scholarships, athletics, the arts and more. Parents are also playing a big part in the WE DO campaign, which recently surpassed $400 million on the way to its $500 million goal — we are grateful for your loyalty!

Parents of current students are automatically members of the Parents Association. Would you like to become more involved? Consider joining the Parents Board. We invite you to review the member expectations and complete the online application on or before Jan. 7, 2017.
