Bringing together hundreds of donors and members of the Parent Development Council (PDC), this year’s Head of School’s Circle Celebration thanked donors who give $2,500 and up for their continued commitment to The Harker School and its mission.
Upon their arrival at the event, held in early May in the upper school’s Nichols Hall atrium, participants enjoyed appetizers as they strolled the room, admiring artwork still adorning the walls from the art students’ recently held exhibit.
After opening remarks from Chris Nikoloff, head of school, audience members were treated to performances by Harker’s upper school show choir Downbeat, its middle school all-male dance team High Voltage and middle school girls’ dance group Showstoppers.
A handful of upper school students representing athletics, business, entrepreneurship and other learning areas also talked about how greatly those programs had impacted them. They thanked the audience members for supporting curricula they are so passionate about.
The engaging evening was brought to a close as dessert and coffee were served in the atrium.
