Dear Parents:

Welcome Spring!

It is hard to say those words after what we have endured this winter, but I am hopeful that each of you had a successful second term and are looking forward to Spring Break. Hopefully you were able to enjoy some of our performing arts this winter, as we’ve had several shows, recitals, and concerts, and most recently the Upper School students performed "The Diary of Anne Frank" in the Center for the Arts. It is hard to believe that very soon the Class of 2014 will be making their college choices and getting ready for Commencement!

Spring is also the time of year when we are excited about the prospect of welcoming another new group of families to Thayer, and we look forward to meeting and getting to know them for years to come.

Within the upcoming weeks we have lots going on! "Hoops for Haiti", a wonderful fundraiser for Lordina, is happening the first week of March, and then Thayer Auction 2014 will take place on April 11th at Granite Links in Quincy. Invitations have been sent - don’t delay in returning your response card, as this event has sold out in recent years! It will be a fantastic evening for the entire community, filled with lots of fun, and all proceeds will benefit TAPA Programs, financial aid, and Thayer’s endowment. There is still time to donate an item to the Auction! Please visit and click on the Auction Tab to the right hand side of the main page.

In addition, the 20th annual General’s Open Golf and Tennis Tournament, a joint fundraising effort for the Parents’ and Alumni Associations, is coming up on May 5th at Wollaston Golf Club in Milton. For the second year we will offer a round-robin tennis tournament as well as 18 holes of golf, and the day will end with a silent auction and a banquet for all participants. Please connect with Deb Budde in the Alumni Office if you are interested in sponsoring the event, donating an item to the auction or being a participant. It is not too late!

Good luck to all of our students in this third and last term of the 2013-2014 school year. I look forward to seeing many of you at our final Parents’ Association meeting on April 7th at 7:00pm in the Southworth Library.

All the Best~
