We welcomed Parents, Family, Alumni, Friends, and our esteemed Board Members to campus for Parents Weekend 2016 on October 7th & 8th. It was a beautiful fall weekend, the foliage bursting with orange, yellow and red hues all across campus as parents visited classes with their students last Friday. Following academic classes, parents, students and faculty gathered under the tent for a delicious lunch. The afternoon provided an opportunity for parents to learn more about their student's academic programs, the college process and financial aid, and an Edge student project to build a Koi Pond on campus. A musical performance by our students is always a highlight at Kildonan. That evening, the Kildonan Community gathered for the 4th Annual Fall Ball "Denim and Diamonds!" Over 120 guests enjoyed a relaxed, country-chic dinner that featured a wine pull, silent auction, and hearty live auction which brought in record-setting high donations for our beloved school! We thank all those who donated so generously! The weekend continued on Saturday, October 8th with Parent-Teacher conferences, an impressive horse show of all ages and abilities, a wonderful lunch outside, and a competitive varsity soccer game to wrap up a wonderful Parents Weekend.
