Dear Saddle River Day School Families,

Dear Saddle River Day School Families,

On behalf of the Parents Guild, I would like to welcome you to the 2021-22 Saddle River Day school year!

As we enter the new school year, we are hopeful that we will have more opportunities to bring back the fun events and exciting happenings that capture the essence and spirit of all that makes SRDS a unique and special community. We cannot thank our teachers, administrators, faculty, and staff for all they are doing to ensure our children will have a safe, fun, and highly educational school experience.

Although we are moving forward with full optimism, conditions may change and we are ready to reimagine our planned activities in ways that are sure to bring our community together.  As in the past, our PG meetings will be held on the first Thursday of every month; the first one being Thursday, September 9th at 9:00am under the tent on the main field, with the option to attend virtually.  Join us to learn about volunteer opportunities, school happenings, and special events. 

Our kickoff event will be Homecoming on Saturday, October 9th from 12-4pm. This outdoor celebration is a great way for the entire family to join our community in a social setting. We are also excited to announce that Ladies Night will be back in person at Seasons Thursday, November 4th at 7pm. The night will be filled with fun basket raffles, wine pulls, shopping, prizes and so much more as we raise money to fund enriching programs for our children and the SRDS community. The Parents Guild has many activities and events planned, both old and new that we will be adding to our calendar, conditions permitting. As our community is growing larger, our greatest goal for this year is to bring our community together in as many fun and safe ways as we can. 

As parents and guardians of SRDS students, you are automatically a member of our Parents Guild and we would love your support in any way possible. From attending our meetings and fundraisers, to volunteering, to simply providing positive emotional support, any amount of help, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated! Participating in any of these ways provides a wonderful opportunity to meet new people, have fun and strengthen our school as a whole.

On behalf of the SRDS Parents Guild we would once again like to extend a warm welcome and best wishes for a successful school year!  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.  Enjoy the rest of your summer and we’ll see you in September!
