JPD, our Junior Parent Dinner, transforms our campus - and especially the library - into a magical place where parents are catered to by their children. It is a true evening to remember.
In the words of our students:
"Down the stretch, JPD becomes your life." These were the first words that came out of Mrs. Ursettie's mouth at our kick-off meeting in spring. Of course, some of us did not necessarily believe her to the fullest extent... until two weeks prior to the actual event. JPD really did take over our lives. In short, it was an arduous journey. And I wouldn't trade it for the world. JPD was a great way to just give back. The table set-up on the day of JPD basically sums up the entire experience: waking up early, manual labor, inside jokes, and frustration with others' dearth of knowledge of silverware settings. But in all seriousness, we had to learn to work together as a group, and we all understood why we were all there. It has been an amazing ride, but all good things must come to an end. I will never forget this group—they won't forget me because of all the e-mails I sent out— and I would do it again if I could. Best of luck to the Class of 2015." E.F.
"JPD: a lot of hard work that paid off incredibly well at the end." K.C.
"Seeing all the technical stuff that goes into a show like JPD - there is more to the show than you see - lots of work gets done behind the scenes. It was really cool to be a part of that." N.R.
"The process of making JPD happen -watching everything come together and seeing what we accomplished made us proud of our class." J.S.
