Alumni Weekend 2018

GREETINGS FROM MIDDLESEX!

We hope you will join us on May 11th and 12th for Alumni Weekend 2018. We are welcoming back members of all graduated classes ending in a ‘3 or a ‘5 for our annual 2-day reunion celebration. Additionally, all members of the Old Guard (all alumni who graduated at least 51 years ago) are invited to join us for all of the traditional weekend activities. This year, the Old Guard welcomes the Class of 1967 to its ranks.

Weekend festivities will kick off on campus Friday night with music and a New England clambake under the Reunion Tent.  Here you’ll get your first chance to catch up with your old classmates and perhaps one or two of your favorite faculty members.  The food, music and reconnecting with friends will surely leave you energized for the next day!

Saturday begins early for those of you open to a morning mindfulness practice, and then onto some more traditional Alumni Weekend activities including an address from Head of School Kathy Giles P’06’09’12, highlighting the School’s continuing growth. Midday, head over to the Reunion Tent for lunch and Class photos.  Following lunch, you’ll have your pick of spectator sports as Middlesex athletes compete in a variety of competitions. Later in the day, wind down indoors with some cool refreshments at an Afternoon Tea in the new, state-of-the-art Rachel Carson Music and Campus Center.  Stay for the dedication of a recently installed commemorative painting and listen to Middlesex musicians delight all with a concert in the impressive Danoff Recital Hall.  Saturday evening, milestone class reunions (ending in a ‘3 or ‘8) will gather at various locations for their own unique receptions.  The complete weekend schedule is continually updated as things evolve, so be sure to check it out as you make your plans.

This reunion weekend is not to be missed!

Reunion Classes

* If you are in a reunion class, you are invited to join classmates for a special Saturday night class reception.  Please visit Reunion Class Info for a list of Reunion Committee Members, and any additional details about your specific class reunion.

Registration

There is a charge of $50 per day for any alumni or their adult guests to attend any or all of the reunion activities taking place over the weekend.   While registration is free for alumni returning for their 5th reunion, there is a flat fee of $50 per adult guest.  Online registration is available, or you may also call us at 978-371-6509.  Free childcare (ages 5-12yrs) will be available for Friday night, but children must be pre-registered.

Travel and Accommodations

While many of our alumni, parents, and friends can make the trip back to Concord by car, a significant number of you are spread out across the country and around the world.  We consider ourselves fortunate to be located so close to a travel hub such as Boston.   Whatever your mode of transportation we’ve got the directions that will help you to get you back to campus.

Overnight accommodations are plentiful in and around the Concord area, but it’s always best to plan ahead.  We have blocked rooms at a discounted rate in a number of hotels.  The quantity of rooms is limited, so early reservations are recommended.  Please reference “Middlesex School Reunion” when telephoning the hotels.
