Dear Rowland Hall Friends and Family,

As the calendar year comes to an end, I want to take a moment to thank you for being a part of our extraordinary community. I am continually impressed with how our students, faculty, and staff dedicate themselves to reaching new goals and making the world a better place. Our school is thriving thanks to caring people like you, and we head into 2017 ready to embrace the new challenges and opportunities that await us. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season with your loved ones, near and far.

Warmest wishes,

Alan Sparrow
