WELCOME (BACK) TO MSD!
All MSD parents and caregivers are invited to a welcome back parent reception under the stars on the MSD Field. Join us for food, drinks, and fun as we say goodbye to summer and welcome in another fantastic school year together. Adults only event!
CONNECT WITH MSD’S HEAD OF SCHOOL!
Fireside Chats are your opportunity to connect with MSD’s Head of School Julie Bragdon, members of our Board of Trustees, and other families who have been in our community for two years. These outdoor, in-person events are small on purpose, allowing space for questions and conversation.
A TREASURED TRADITION AT MSD
Our students have a million reasons to love their grandparents, aunts, uncles, nannies, neighbors, close family friends, and everyone who plays a big role in their lives! These people are their biggest fans. They champion their awesomeness in everything they do, and they love them in that special way only GrandFriends can.
At MSD, we treasure GrandFriends, too! Each year, they visit our campus to celebrate the important work we do at MSD. They join us for a light breakfast, a choir performance, student-led presentations in the classrooms, and to see MSD in action on GrandFriends Day.
Sometimes GrandFriends attend our annual Auction fundraiser in April. Throughout the school year, we enjoy seeing these very special guests on campus in carline and in the classrooms celebrating birthdays and special occasions with us.
We also count on GrandFriends to help make what we do at MSD possible each year with their financial support of the Annual Fund. Inscribe a special message on a legacy leaf for your grandchild! Support our Grandparents’ Walk here.
ALL ARE WELCOME!
