Dear T-D Family:

There is so much going on at T-D that it is difficult to think of turkey time and Thanksgiving. Never the less, I’ll try to stuff some of T-D’s tastiest treats into this missive.

Our student council election is today during period 3. Ms. Tudisco has a great bunch of upper schoolers working with her. Best wishes to all those on the council’s ballot.

On Tuesday, November 6th, both Drs. James van Sandwyk and Iris Pagan will be heading to South Salem to the Wolf Conservation Center. They will be howling with 30 upper schoolers. The bus departs at 9:15 AM and will be back during period 8. For admission and transportation, T-D students need to bring in $30.00 to cover these fees. Lunch will be enjoyed on the return at a convenient McDonald’s restaurant. Please remember to bring lunch money.

Life is a cabaret and on Thursday, November 8th our most talented parents and teachers will perform from 5:00 PM on at Alvin & Friends Restaurant in downtown New Rochelle. There is a $10 charge. I’m ready to lip sync.

Friday, November 9th, there will be a really interesting Mongolian cultural program as “Dino” Don Lessem addresses grades 6 – 12. He’ll be presenting dinosaur bones and photos as he lectures on his “Jurassic Park” adventure. He recently spent time with former President Barack Obama and made People Magazine’s top 50 U.S. personalities. I’ll be sharing specs beforehand.

Quarterly exams begin Novembr 14th and extend through the morning before our Thanksgiving break, November 21st. Please note that dismissal time on the 21st is 12:47 PM.

The Notre Dame Bears weekend is now at 20 participants and Mongolian seats are so close to all gone that more than praying may be required.

November for T-D is the Loyalty Fund Drive commencement. You can expect a solicitation letter in less than ten days.

Thank you all for making T-D so much more than a school.

Sincerely yours,

Douglas E. Fleming, Jr.

N.B. Congrats to Auden Griffiths for “Best In Show” at the Halloween Costume Contest.
