Dear Storm King Community,
I’m writing to you on behalf of our Alumni Association - writing because I believe we have something to offer you. Something you may have lost or forgotten, possibly never had. That something needn’t cost you a dime, though your gifts are needed for our School and greatly appreciated.
Part of what we have to offer is memories: springtime breaking out on the mountain after a long cold, snowy winter; the rich smells of the Earth returning to life; mountain winds blowing with pure passion, cleansing the air, moving us into new seasons, fresh beginnings.
Then there’s the legacy of The Storm King School, a legacy of greatness, a school to be proud to have graduated from. The legacy of a school that rose to meet the specific needs of each generation of its students - that taught us community, nurtured us, and inspired us to participate in being the very best we could be.
Sweet memories, growing pains, defeats and victories . . .
What I’m offering to you is an opportunity for even more than memories, more than seeing old friends. It’s an invitation to be a community again, to be the “we.” To experience the satisfaction, the pride and joy of once again being a part of a great school. We can’t be that school without you. Today’s young people need you to move them into the future. “You only get to keep what you give away.”
So come to Reunion, visit with each other and today’s school. Merge the past with the present. Teach a class, speak of your lives, your work, your journey at Career Day. Send some money to fix the gym lights, buy books for the library or honor someone who loved you who has passed away. Come shoot some hoops during the Alumni Basketball Weekend. Let today’s varsity know what kind of spirit our opponents were up against.
Come pass on in word and deed our community legacy of decency, wonder, connection and excellence.
“Help thy Brothers boat across and lo thine own has reached the shore."
P.S. Come meet our new Head of School, Paul Domingue, his wife Dale, and me at Homecoming on Saturday October 6, 2012.
