Dear Trustees,

The next Board of Trustees meeting is Tuesday, March 5th at  6pm.
LOCATION: MCS, 150 West 85th Street
TIME: 6:30pm (Dinner is served at 6)
Please RSVP: eporter@manhattancountryschool.org
NEW CONFERENCE CALL NUMBER: Conference Dial-in Number:  (605) 313-4162 Host/Participant Access Code: 611437

The agenda of our meeting on Tuesday is testament to the work taking place in board committees this year. The attention, diligence and stewardship of our current and future financial well-being is reflected in the status reports in this packet. A director’s report, including an admissions update, will be sent separately tomorrow.

The School-to-Farm dinner tonight promises to expand the circle of people who recognize our public mission judging from the guest list with new names and several friends that we’ve wanted to reconnect to MCS. Thank you to the trustees that will attend or are supporting in other ways. Some have family members on the event committee ensuring that sustainability is experienced as authentic on 85th Street as at the Farm. Others are underwriting the attendance of faculty who can authenticate the stories about the impact of the farm experience on all children. Imagining the opportunities we might realize with the farm’s expansion is anything but far-fetched.

Thank you all for being so fully committed to the success of our strategic moment in MCS history, through careful research, dialogue and debate, and arriving at recommendations for the board to consider on Tuesday.

See you then,
