Fall 2017 Grandparent Newsletter

Westhampton Day School


Welcome to our fall 2017 Grandparents Newsletter! We love our WDS families and want you to be in the know about all the great activities we have planned at Westhampton Day School!

Director's Blurb

The first ever WDS Fall Fling will take place on Thursday, October 19th! This event is designed to provide our WDS families with a time to visit and get to know one another, and also to raise funds for our facility. Students will get family and friends to help fill up their pledge cards for the big run, which will raise funds to overhaul the four bathrooms that are in the two-year-old classrooms in the education building. Our own Anne Hunter of H2 Designs is our Project Manager for this major building remodeling. We hope you can join us in raising funds for this much-needed facility improvement while fellowshipping with WDS families!

· Festivities will take place on the blacktop from 3:30 - 6:30 PM

· The Grapevine Food Truck will be donating 15% of all food purchases!

· You will find a fall photo booth, tattoos, face painting, bake sale, & pumpkin auction.

· Cheer on student runners who are in the Potty Fun Run! Students will have filled pledge cards to raise funds for the bathroom overhaul.

Together, we can work together to improve our facility -- all while having a good time and meeting new friends. Looking forward to seeing you then!

Danielle Todd,

WDS Director
