You are invited to join us on Tuesday, January 9th from 2:30 to 3:30 for our inaugural winter Alumni Reception at Nysmith School! We’re also hoping to reconnect with many of our college alums who were unable to attend the August Alumni Reception because their school year had already started. The teachers will be available and eager to see you after 3:00. Both student and parent alums are welcome!

Please let us know if you can attend. We look forward to seeing you at the reception - we’ve missed you!

Happy Holidays from all of us at Nysmith!
