Since the founding of Tuxedo Park School in 1900, faculty, families, and friends of the school have worked hard to create and maintain a high level of academic excellence, a spirit of competiveness, and a core value of kindness.
In her Salvete speech, Alice Gleybman, ’19, expressed what it means to be a TPS student:
“…we understood that we were here for more than just learning…we built memories like a family…”
We see endless examples of student kindness and support of each other throughout the halls and on the fields. In this year’s annual mile run, a student who, just a few months post a kidney transplant, was struggling to compete the course. Without hesitation, some of his friends ran to join him followed by a few more, and ultimately, the entire school. To say there was not a dry eye on Shepard Field is an understatement!
As we look forward to the new school term and the celebration of our 120th year, we are grateful to this community for your outstanding support through the years.
Your generosity enables our students to immerse in a rigorous academic curriculum, a robust character education, and compete in numerous Green and Gold competitions throughout the year. TPS students learn in an atmosphere that is both encouraging and supportive.
Perhaps this is what Jake Shepard, ’73, acknowledged when he created the school motto-
Disce Duc Animo Mente – Learn to Lead with Mind and Spirit.
Your part in helping us to grow well educated and caring people, is invaluable and necessary.
Your gift to the Annual Fund gives the students and faculty of TPS the opportunity to learn and lead with mind and spirit.
