“THANK YOU for all of the effort you have put into learning remotely. It’s now time to focus on summer fun!“ — Jennifer White, Head of the Middle School
From the Upper School …
We have moved Dutch Weekend
Because Dutch Weekend is NOT a masked ball and because it is awfully hard to maintain 6 feet of distance from one another at a school dance, we are moving Dutch weekend from June 5 – 6 to July 10 – 11. By moving it to this particular date, we can have it just after Commencement, as long as the social distancing rules have loosened by then. We will have the powderpuff game, the cookout, and the senior sunset on Friday, July 10. We will have the formal dance on campus, in the US Gym on the evening of July 11. Be in touch with Ms. Fondren-Bales with questions!
Thursday, May 21: Diplomas conferred on the Class of 2020.
Thursday, July 9: Commencement exercises for the Class of 2020 on the Holland Hall campus.
Friday, July 10: Powderpuff game, the cookout, and the senior sunset.
Saturday, July 11: Formal Dutch Weekend dance on campus, in the US Gym.
Class of 2021 Senior Pictures Begin Soon
To set up your required yearbook photo with Ervin Photography, please call 918-209-5050. The best time to do these photos is in the summer, and Ervin will have all the info for how to have a safe and fun experience. As a courtesy, the studio offers an abbreviated session with a complimentary photo for the yearbook if that is your choice. More information will come out soon by email and you can contact Shirley Sokolosky for more information, firstname.lastname@example.org.

What a year it’s been
Our teachers have worked so hard to provide learning opportunities for your students. Our technology specialists continue to work diligently to provide platforms and services for the teachers and students. Grounds and building maintenance continue even as our campus is closed. Although we may not be together in our buildings, we are together as a community. Your annual fund gift helps make everything possible.
