  • To all in the Class of 2020. Forever you are joined with the unique bond of your senior year experiences which no other class will hopefully ever have to endure. You have all been dealt a tough blow. From the loss of senior traditions, athletic championship wins, final stage productions, last Spring Concert, loss of final everything you have all pushed forward with pragmatism and maturity. We are so proud of your positive outlook and are confident that nothing will ever keep the MICDS Class of 2020 from surging forward in life with grace and integrity. Congratulations and best wishes for the future. – Annie, David and Hattie Sloane xxx

  • Class of 2020: You are an amazing class and have left your mark on our school despite the alternate ending to this year. Your class has so many talents – scientists, artists, thespians, athletes, mathemeticians, historians just to name of few. I cannot wait to see where life takes you into college and beyond. I have had the privilege of knowing many of you for all 14 of your years at MICDS as I started working here at Lower School the same year you started in JK. I have also come to know many others as you have entered at various points along the journey. To the Peer to Peer Mentors: thank you for your work to build a strong program that will live on long beyond your years at MICDS. – Vicki Thurman
