President of the Alumnae Association

Dear Oldfields Alumnae and Friends,

I am so proud of all of you Oldfields Alumnae! You were a wonderful sounding board as we worked through our Head of School search process. Your phone calls, emails, and words of wisdom showed just how much you love your School. Thank you! I know it wasn't easy to get back to campus to meet our final three candidates, but for those who could, I can't thank you enough for your time and effort.

I believe our Search Committee, along with our Oldfields Community, chose well. David Perfield and his family have the heart, spirit, and energy to lead our beloved School into the future. With David's leadership and your support, we have a bright future ahead!

I hope that all of you are able to meet David and his family soon. This fall there are two opportunities to meet David and his wife, Lisa: at our Baltimore Gathering on Thursday, October 25th, and at our New York City Gathering on Thursday, November 8th. More gatherings will be planned for after the first of the year. If those dates don't work, mark your calendar now for our 2019 Alumnae Day on April 27th. That way you can meet the whole Perfield family, including Anna and Lexi!

I also want to thank all of you for your help in getting us over the $12 million goal for our Spirit Capital Campaign. Nicely done, everyone! Please continue to support Oldfields in every way you can. Your gifts, big and small, make a difference at Oldfields every single day of the year.

Dr. Seuss once said "sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory..." I hope you will join me in creating many more Oldfields memories under David Perfield's leadership.

What a wonderful time to be an Oldfields Girl!

Many thanks for all you do,



Lulu Laubenstein Good '72

A Note from Cinda '64

When I became a member of the Alumnae Association Board, I was asked to write a few words to my fellow alumnae. I answered with a big heartfelt "Yes."

The most wonderful news is that Oldfields will be 150 years old in 2017. WOW! In today's world, that's pretty good stuff and pretty impressive. Not many girls' schools survive that length of time. Our School has endured because many people, just like you, have felt a shared sense of responsibility for Oldfields – largeness of heart, indeed.

My class was a close-knit one, and some of the friends I made at Oldfields are, today, among my closest friends. I hope those reading these words feel the same way about their classmates, friends, and experiences at Oldfields.

Please return to Oldfields, remember your School, be as generous as you can be.
