Reunion Dinner

TRS Class of 2012

Reunited and it feels so good!

The Raleigh School Class of 2012 and their parents + siblings made it back to a dinner in early December. The alums spent some time getting re-acquainted with one another and made time for an impromptu tour of the campus that now looks so much smaller than it used to.

We wish them well as they begin to hear back about their college applications. It was great to see everyone!
