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.

November 2023

Dear Parents, Grandparents, Alumni, Alumni Parents, and Friends,

As the calendar quickly approaches the end of another year, I find myself reflecting on the changing seasons and the passing of time. I see the development of our children, and their steady progression from infant to toddler to school age. Indeed, these first five years are complete with milestone achievements socially, emotionally, and intellectually. How wonderful and yet how daunting it is to watch our children become their own person. 

With the approaching holiday season, I also consider with great gratitude the community of All Souls School. I first think about our families and faculty and staff but also the extended members of our families including grandparents as well as our alumni and alumni parents. We have all been touched by the All Souls School mission to nurture our children during these foundational years. I’m so grateful to work in partnership with you for the benefit of our students today and for years to come.

As you know, the delivery of our mission comes with a cost, much of which is funded by tuition. Our program is competitively priced to allow access to families across all socioeconomic backgrounds. But our revenues do not cover all of our expenses. To make up this difference, we ask all of our families, present and past, to make a financial gift to our Annual Fund. Contributions go directly to this year’s operating budget and impact our programs, students, and delivery of our mission.

I ask that you consider joining me by making your own gift to the Annual Fund. Please do the best you can within your financial means thereby making All Souls one of your top philanthropic priorities. Every gift, of every amount, is valued and appreciated.

Thank you and all my best wishes for the coming season of gratitude and giving.
