Thank you!

"What are some ways to say 'thank you' in words and actions?"

This simple but profound query was developed by a Lower School class years ago, but it resonates today and throughout this season of gratitude.

Members of our community—students, faculty, staff, parents, and alumni—are demonstrating the power of gratitude by giving thanks for the aspects of their lives and Sidwell Friends they most appreciate. 

Check out this video and see if you treasure the same things:     




Most of all, we're thankful for you and the many ways you make Sidwell Friends a better place to grow and learn. By sharing your insights, time, talents, and philanthropy, you enable our students to thrive, our faculty to learn, and our community to grow. We are grateful for your contributions, because with your support, we can continue to offer the quality Quaker education this city and country needs.

We hope this is the beginning of a wonderful season of friends, family, and conviviality.
