Summer Sabbatical Legacy Gate
Near the end of the 2018 school year, we constructed the Stephanie Pax Flanigan Legacy Gate to honor Stephanie’s dedication to MSD as our beloved Head of School for 18 years. The Gate was thoughtfully designed with dashes of beautiful bronze accents to include 66 icons that illustrate how Stephanie’s and MSD’s stories are linked together. The Gate not only enhances the on-campus experience, but it also enhances staff wellness and the educational experience for our students by providing two $5,000 Summer Sabbatical grants each year to Faculty and Staff to recharge their batteries and promote personal growth. Each icon is available for a minimum donation of $2,500 and these monies make Summer Sabbaticals possible every year. The positive impact the Summer Sabbaticals have had and continue to have on our community are truly inspirational.
Staff members who have been at MSD ten or more and five or more years may apply for the Summer Sabbatical, and two names are chosen randomly out of a hat each school year.

Distinguished Speakers Series
Every year, MSD brings renowned and recognized speakers, educators, and authors to our campus as part of our Distinguished Speaker Series. Open to our community and the public at large, these events are made possible by donations to the Distinguished Speaker fund. Thank you to Cristin and Lindsay Brown for their dedication and support of this year’s fund!
