Thanksgiving 2017
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 

From Charles Street, Thank you from the Alumni Office! 

It's that time of year where we all think about the things that we are thankful for in our lives.  If you're like me you remember the days of gathering in the gym for Thanksgiving Convocation and singing "Simple Gifts" (we still do that by the way). Here at the Alumni Office, we would like to give thanks to those of you who help our School, whether it be through volunteering, donations or acting as ambassadors and spreading the word about Friends School to others.  Please click below to enjoy a video created by one of our Seniors, Ilana Wolchinsky '18, as a token of our appreciation.  Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

FriendsConnects
- Working to Shape the School's Future with Your Help

Here at Friends we are excited to have entered into a strategic planning process in order to meet the future needs of students, the adult professional community and families while maintaining the spirit of our community.  One of the strategic areas of focus is "To more fully engage families and alumni in the life of our campus community, in order to enrich these vital relationships." 

Amy Mortimer '87 and I are leading this area of focus and we need your help!  Those of you who are local, we would welcome you to help serve on the committee in order to brainstorm ideas about how we can more fully engage alumni and families.  Those of you who are not local, please let us know if you would be willing to consult with us on various initiatives.  Please e-mail alumni@friendsbalt.org with any questions or if you are interested in helping us!

The Friends School Alumni Office Welcomes New Staff!

We have had an exciting summer here at the Friends School Development Office.  Caroline Rayburn, who has been our part-time gifts processor and acknowledgement coordinator for over a year and a half, has enthusiastically taken on the role of Director of Annual & Alumni Giving.  Some of you remember that she served in this capacity for Friends in the early 2000's and she's back!

Jeb Cook '06 joined the Development Office this month.  A graduate of Gettysburg and the University of Maryland School of Law, Jeb is serving in a part time capacity as administrative support for the alumni relations, parent relations and annual giving programs. 

Katie Griffin also joined the Development Office this month. She too is a graduate of Gettysburg and comes most recently from the client-service side of the insurance industry.  She will be responsible for gift processing, office management and generally serve as the administrative assistant to the Development Team.  

And finally, I am thrilled to be back on campus as Director of Alumni Relations & Engagement as of July.  Since graduating from Friends in 2001 and Denison University in 2005, I began my professional career after college working in the development office at the Mercy Health Foundation in Baltimore.  I then moved into marketing research, working with a wide variety of clients in the education industry and the nonprofit sector.  I hope to bring a fresh perspective from my business and client development experience to our office.

We are all very excited to be working together and with you!

E-mail or stop by to say "hello" - cpappas@friendsbalt.org.

Happy Thanksgiving!
Today at Friends, the campus community celebrated our annual Thanksgiving Convocation. The special tradition kicked off as the senior class walked with Pre-Primary students, hand in hand, to the gymnasium. Students and faculty cheered on Friends School dancers, singers and instrumentalists during special performances and everyone enjoyed raising their voices in song together to "Simple Gifts" as the afternoon concluded. From Friends School to you and your loved ones, we send our wishes for a happy and peaceful Thanksgiving.

Fall 2016

We are thrilled to share with you the successful completion of the Setting the Stage Campaign,
which garnered $25.7 million for the School. We extend heartfelt thanks for each and every 
person - especially our alumni! - who participated in this historic endeavor. In fact, over 40% of the donors to this campaign are alumni. This support is a true statement of faith: faith in your alma
mater, faith in the teachers who mentor and encourage our students each day, faith in our community. Whether you are near or far from campus, our alumni give so much to Friends each year, and this campaign is continuing proof of that commitment.
