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 December 2017
Northwestern, Smith, Boston University, Franklin & Marshall and Oberlin were amongst the colleges and universities represented by our young alum as they returned to campus on Wednesday, December 20th.

Graduates from the Classes of 2013-2017 returned to campus to share with current SRDS students what life at college is REALLY like as Ryan Neumann, Class of 2016 MC'd our fourth annual young alum "Surviving and Thriving in College" panel discussion.

The panel was asked questions like "Which teacher/class inspired you the most at SRDS?" 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.

Brittany Rodriguez '15, who is continuing her studies at Smith College spoke to how her experience at SRDS has had a direct impact on her success at college. In addition to receiving a very strong academic foundation, particularly in the Humanities and writing, Brittany was the Stage Manager for the SRDS theatre department where she gained great confidence in her ability to be a leader. She is continuing to pursue theatre management as a major and child studies and education for her minor.
 
It is always heartwarming when students return to campus who have graduated in recent years to visit former classmates and reconnect with teachers. A common theme from these young alum is how they "miss SRDS" and realize what a special place it is, now more than ever. For these young people, it feels like coming "home" again. But more importantly, the common experience of how well-prepared they each felt when they began college is a sentiment that is echoed time and time again. 

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.
