• Homecoming & Reunion 2017
Brick House 2017
Homecoming Weekend kicked off with the Annual Alumni Cocktail Party at The Brick House in Wyckoff, NJ. A record attendance of over 125 Alumni gathered to enjoy a relaxing evening as they reunited with old classmates and teachers and shared SRDS memories with fellow Alumni from across the generations.

The evening began with a tribute to former beloved Head of School Robert J. Kuhlman, who served as the Head from 1976 until he passed unexpectedly in 1991. Mr. Kuhlman encouraged students to find their individual path to success. His compassion and nurturing personal connection to the students fostered a belief that through dedication and hard work, each student would reach their own potential. He influenced the direction of countless students, and over twenty-five years after his passing, he still represents the embodiment of what we celebrate today at Saddle River Day School. The entire Kuhlman family was in attendance to honor his memory.
 
Kimberly Jones Moussavian '87 was honored as our Distinguished Alumna of the Year for 2017. Kimberly started at SRDS in Grade 7 and was heavily involved in student life and athletics all through high school. She went on to Trinity College with a double major in Spanish and Education and received her JD from Temple University School of Law with honors. While she had opportunities to forge a career in highly competitive law firms, Kimberly chose instead to practice public interest law for low-income clients. She has devoted her life to public service including her most recent commitment as a Board of Trustee member at The Center for Hope and Safety, an educational resource for victims of domestic violence.

Also honored were three Rebel Athletic Hall of Fame inductees, Allison Zage '10, Jill Rosker '11 and Amanda Jones '11.

Young Alum Event 2017
Johnny Kluger Class of 2016 MC'd our third annual young alum "Surviving and Thriving in College" panel discussion before an assembly of Middle and Upper School students.

Questions ranged from "What is it like to do laundry in college?" to "What advice can you give about time management?" and "Do you think you've changed as a person since you began college?" Members of the panel "agreed" or "disagreed" with answers based upon their own experiences.

One of the best answers of the day came from Ross Rabin '16 when he talked about how to take advantage of "office hours" from his college professors. He said, "I've utilized office hours not just to improve my grade, but to find out what I need to learn and know. The measure of success is not necessarily what you get on a report card but how much you've learned and grown in the process." Ross began his studies at Babson this past Fall.

Athan Katsantonis '16 spoke to how his experience at SRDS had a direct impact on his success so far at Syracuse. "I came to Saddle River Day as a Junior from a big high school where no one really knew who I was. I knew right from the start that this school would make a difference for me and it did. Here I was able to be involved in everything and explore my passion for sports, especially basketball. Teachers at SRDS gave me the personal attention to really reach my own potential. At Syracuse, even though it is big, I can be confident in myself and my abilities. I'm one of the student managers for the Syracuse mens basketball team and I don't know if I would have had the confidence to do something like that without my two years at SRDS. I'm very grateful." Athan is going to focus on a career related to the sports industry.

We take great pride in watching our young alumni grow academically and personally as they embark on the next chapter of their lives and look forward to seeing our students next year again for this wonderful annual event.
