New Parents Are Welcomed

On Thursday evening, October 3, parents of new students were welcomed in Ward Hall by faculty members, administrators, and fellow parents at the annual New Parent Dinner.

A cocktail reception started the night off, which gave guests a chance to chat with different members of the School community. Fr. John Arens welcomed everyone and said grace before dinner was served.

Following dinner, Headmaster Bill Burke introduced Patrick McDonald '20, a current senior, who addressed the crowd and spoke about his experience at St. Sebastian's and how students can get involved in many different extracurricular school activities.
