Alumni Weekend 2017

The 9th annual alumni weekend was held Sept. 23, 2017.
 
More than 200 alumni, plus spouses, children, and some former faculty, attended the weekend, which included class reunions (for classes ending in 7 or 2), tours of the school, an evening banquet, and children’s activities. The class of '67 met at Das Essenhaus for its 50th year reunion; the class of 2012 did not meet.
