The alumni community is amazing, I keep in touch with the administrators of Fieldstone, and they always invite me back to help out with events! It’s an amazing opportunity to see the next generation of students who come out of Fieldstone, and the work that they’ve also put in throughout their years. Since graduating, I’ve still continued to keep up with students at the school. I really believe that I’ve truly made life long friendships! The parents at Fieldstone are also great, and they even have their own faculty in the JK-8 section of the school! I found that through my elementary years at Fieldstone the parents contributed a lot to the events and even creating a close-knit circle of friends for their children.
From my experience, parents, especially in the day school, formed an integral part of the community. I even remember the parents' association being very involved in school life, which goes to show their great care to involve parents. In terms of being an alumnus, I definitely still feel like I am a part of the school community, being invited for alumni events and asked to contribute to the school environment. I am still in contact with people at the school, as that feeling of being welcomed back at the school at any time and being asked to contribute is something that is definitely refreshing and makes me as an alumni always feel like a part of the school community.
What stands out to me is how willing Fieldstone is about maintaining bonds within and outside of the community. I have been invited to participate in many activities, as an alumni, such as judging a business competition. I have also been invited to a lunch at Fieldstone. Since my time at Fieldstone, I keep in contact with a couple of my friends, many of which are currently scattered around the globe. This has proven very beneficial because I now have friends around the world. Fieldstone has really encouraged keeping ties with their alumni and have them feel included with the school. That is so wonderful because I get to see many of the teachers and administrators from my time there and that is always such a wonderful experience.
