Fall Family Weekend 2016
Posted 10/31/2016 10:36AM

Every fall as the leaves begin to change, Oldfields welcomes family and friends for the School’s Fall Family Weekend. This year’s weekend, held on October 7- 8, had a great turnout! As always, the day began with Advisory and a spirited Morning Meeting, followed by parents attending classes with their daughters. Class periods were shortened, which allowed families to experience every class on the student’s schedule. The girls loved showing their families around and introducing them to their teachers and friends. The Oldfields Parent Association outdid themselves this year with gorgeous fall decorations all over campus. Thanks to a picture perfect day, Oldfields never looked so beautiful and welcoming!

The entire community was treated to a performing arts show after lunch. A skit performed by Playmakers was followed by a variety of vocal offerings by the School’s a cappella groups, Dubious and Images, as well as student soloists. Dancers delighted us with unique pieces, while the 8th graders rendition of “It’s Hard Knock Life” from Annie made us smile.

On Friday afternoon, an informational college counseling meeting was offered for all junior and senior parents. Director of College Counseling, Erica Curtis, discussed the timeline of the college process. College applications can be intimidating, but Ms. Curtis puts everyone at ease by supporting the girls and their families every step of the way!

That evening, the School community and guests came together for a wonderful barbecue on Commons Lawn, complete with live music, bonfires, and a s’mores bar! Parents were also welcomed at the Head’s House for a cocktail party with faculty members. Everyone had fun under the stars!

The Oldfields Parent Association Fall Family Silent Auction was a hit! Fifty-seven items were donated by faculty, staff, and friends of the School. Donations ranged from an evening of baking at a faculty member’s home, to front row seats at Graduation, to various themed baskets, and the very spirited Green vs. White money challenge. The team that raised the most money was treated to dinner at Chick-fil-A. (Greens won!) The sumptuous treats at the bake sale were beyond belief! Thank you to all of our donors, bidders, and volunteers for making this year’s auction an overwhelming success, especially since it is the OPA’s only fundraiser, and all the proceeds go to benefit the girls!

We are so glad that so many could join us for Fall Family Weekend 2016. Thank you to all our parents for sharing your wonderful daughters with us!
