All Souls School—building on each child’s strengths, interests, and experiences

in an intentional, diverse, and nurturing community that fosters experimentation, a love of learning, and respect for others.

Dear Parents and Friends of All Souls School,

Spring is here! Amazingly we are coming upon the end of another school year. A lifetime of memories and friendships are being made in the classrooms amongst children as well as with parents, faculty and administration.

When I wrote this letter last year, I described the ideals our new director Jennifer Vest would be arriving with. I am so happy to share that her deep values in early childhood education and commitment to the All Souls School mission have been reflected every day since her arrival.

I want to thank you for your commitment to All Souls School and hope that we can count on you to contribute to help support the school’s operating activities. As a not-for-profit institution, we depend on donations of all sizes to the Unrestricted Needs Fund to help support the school’s operating activities. Gifts can also be directed to specific areas of impact, including the Dr. Jean Mandelbaum Fund for Faculty Development and Enrichment, the Director’s Fund for Children’s Special Needs, or the Kefalidis/Johannsen Scholarship Fund, which makes it possible for children who would not otherwise be able to attend All Souls to benefit from the School’s caring approach to early childhood education.

I encourage you to join me in making an annual gift to All Souls School. You can contribute online by clicking this link -- DONATE HERE. Any size donation is greatly appreciated and all gifts make a difference. We are hoping to achieve our goal of 100% community participation. Through giving we all contribute to the continued excellence of the All Souls early childhood experience and affirm our connection to this special community.

With appreciation,

Alicin Williamson

President, Board of Trustees
