Fall Family Weekend Preview

by Patty Grennon P ’17, Cape Elizabeth, Maine

As we look ahead to Fall Family Weekend this October 14th-15th, we can anticipate our familiar favorites: attending our students’ classes, faculty one-on-one meetings, class receptions and the beauty of autumn in Deerfield.  There will be numerous athletic contests “at home” on Saturday; please check your student’s individual team schedule.

In addition, families can look forward to our annual Fall Farmers’ Market on the Hess Lawn. The Farmers Market hours will be 9:30am-12:30pm and will feature fresh produce, local maple syrup, honey, granola, artisanal bread, all-natural soda, donuts and coffee.  New this year, the market will feature a variety of local artisans showcasing their handmade jewelry, quilts, clothing and photography.  Also, be sure to swing by the Farmer’s Market from 10-11:00am to enjoy Deerfield’s own a cappella singing groups the Rhapso-D’s and Mellow-D’s!

A Few Highlights:

  • Margarita Curtis, Head of School, will welcome all families and share her “state of the school” perspective with updates on academics, faculty and student life.
  • Meet and Greets with Faculty and Advisors.
  • Individual college advising meetings for class of 2017 parents and students.
  • Performing Arts Showcase, Hess Center for the Arts Friday evening.
