With the end of 2020 rapidly approaching, it is a pleasure to share news from SSFS with you! Below please find updates on beloved SSFS traditions, news of alumni and student accomplishments, information about the School's plans for reopening, and more.
A recurring theme of the past several months has been the nurturing of community and tradition in our virtual world—and from Community Day to the post-Thanksgiving alumni and friends gathering to the annual collection of S.O.M.E. holiday shoeboxes, SSFS's traditions are alive and well. And, of course, our students, alumni, and teachers continue to amaze us with how they let their lives speak.
The new year will offer opportunities for more connections and the creation of new traditions, too. We are looking forward to hosting the Classes of 1968-1972 for their second virtual gathering and to the reimaged Community Play, as well as the launch of an alumni author series in January. (Watch your inboxes for more information!) Most of all, we are eagerly anticipating the time that we are back on campus together.
We hope that you are safe and well, and we look forward to seeing you at one or more virtual events in the coming months. Please do reach out with any ideas or suggestions for virtual gatherings—and, if you haven't already—please consider making a gift to support SSFS this year. Now more than ever, your generosity truly makes a difference!
We wish you every happiness this holiday season and all the very best for a safe, healthy, and happy New Year.
