JTD Alumni

Once a Greyhound, always a Greyhound.

Let us know what’s new with you! Please email any news you would like to share. We love to hear about marriages, births, jobs, travels, and more. Let us know what you are up to by emailing Alumni Manager Carolyn Crosson.
From the Alumni Chair
At John Thomas Dye, 2023 is already off to a busy start, and there is much to look forward to in the months ahead. On February 1, we celebrated JTD’s 94th birthday, which is always one of my favorite school traditions. It is a time to reminisce about our School’s founding, our growth over the last century, and our exciting plans for the future (all while sharing cupcakes!).

Last month, we also held our first Alumni Donor Reception. Thank you to all the JTD alumni who attended and made the night such a success. It was wonderful to see so many generations come together and exchange JTD stories. We were lucky to have so many teachers return as well. I'd like to extend special thanks to Head of School Rose Helm who led us in a mini Candle Lighting ceremony. It truly was a special night. For those of you who couldn’t make it, we hope to see you next year.

Up next on the alumni calendar is everyone’s favorite—The JTD Fair—which will be held on Sunday, May 7. This year’s theme is Cirque du JTD! We will be hosting an alumni brunch from 10:15-11:15am on the Michaud Academic Center rooftop. As always, families are welcome (there will even be activities for the little ones). Please remember to RSVP. And while you’re enjoying The Fair, don’t forget to stop by the Alumni Soda Booth!

Look out for an invite to our next alumni meeting. For those you who are not local, the April meeting will be virtual!

I hope to see you at one (or all!) of our upcoming alumni events! It is thanks to you, our alumni, and your love for JTD that our community is so special. If it’s been a while, drop a line, we’d love to hear what you are up to!

In Love, Beauty, and Truth,
