April 7 & 8, 2022
Head of School Welcome
Thank you for joining us and sharing in the 2022 DCD Grandparent and Special Friend Experience!
The daily news is filled with the large-scale issues in our world today, from the global pandemic and Ukraine crisis to national discord. In the face of so many challenges, I can think of no better moment to build our extended DCD community and create a loving network of caring adults around each of DCD’s children. I know your life experiences provide a hopeful outlook, since you have the ability to see the long arc of how challenges are faced, navigated, and managed, and share that perspective with children.
Whether you are a grandparent or a special friend, I’m so grateful for the relationships our students have with you, the grandparents and loving adults in their lives, who center and ground them. When grandparents and special friends can participate in their life at school, and share your enthusiasm for all students are learning and doing in our classrooms and fields, it helps to amplify their sense of pride and accomplishment in their work.
I look forward to welcoming you back to DCD and I know our students will love sharing their school with you. Whether this is your first visit to campus or a return after many years of participation, we look forward to all coming together in person again. For those of you who wish you could be at DCD and are unable to join the in-person event, we also look forward to connecting with you and sharing the exciting things that are happening at school through a virtual program.
