Summer send-off receptions make connections
Parent Fund Committee members hosted five summer receptions for new students and their parents at their homes or offices – one each in Manhattan; Livingston, N.J.; Manhasset; Bellmore; and Woodcliff, N.J. About 115 people attended in total. At the receptions, incoming students and their parents were able to seek advice from current students and their families, as well as begin establishing a network with other families in their geographic area.
Parent and Family Coordinator Morgan Appel attended the receptions “I was able to find out what the most current concerns and questions are of our incoming families and address them quickly,” she said. “These ‘summer send-offs’ have been so successful that there are plans to add several more to the schedule in the future.”
