Gala 2017
"Planting Seeds for a Greener Future" 


A letter from our Parents Guild:

The SRDS Parents Guild is pleased to announce that in an effort to enrich our children's future, we will dedicate two years of Gala proceeds to create greener spaces and practices for our children. We feel this is an incredibly important goal that needs greater attention and dedication than a one year effort can yield. With this in mind, we have decided to devote the proceeds from Gala 2017 and Gala 2018 to help us meet our goals for this important and transformative two year project.

The proceeds from both galas will aid in funding projects that focus on increasing campus-wide environmental awareness, efficiency and practices. A major initiative is the renovation of our kitchen and will include the installation of a commercial dishwasher system in our dining hall to reduce excessive paper and plastic waste. Other energy-efficiency projects are also in the works.

Funds will also be allocated to our exciting "greener spaces" project which pairs Middle School students with Lower School students to research and design the renovation of one of our outdoor playgrounds. This is a dynamic, interdisciplinary project involving collaboration, critical thinking, 3-D design, engineering, math, art and fun! Students will work together with our architect and enjoy learning through a real-life project on our own campus. In an effort to continue our greener goals, we hope to donate our old playground to be recycled.

Please join us for an amazing evening supporting this fundraiser for our children.

Many thanks for your support!
