Yesterday, parents of the Class of 2019 attended a pair of events to reflect on their years as Harker parents, share their most memorable moments and celebrate Harker’s impact on their children’s lives. At the annual Senior Moms Luncheon, mothers of this year’s graduates gathered at the upper school campus quad where they socialized and enjoyed delicious food. In the evening, the fathers of soon-to-be graduates enjoyed dinner at the Dads of Grads event at the auxiliary gym.
This tradition extends back to 2004, when it began as a potluck for senior mothers. Senior fathers were included starting in 2012, and in 2016 it was split into separate events. Parents of students in grades 9-11 plan and serve the meals, and the senior collages – made by the members of the graduating class to commemorate their time at Harker – are displayed so parents can reminisce.
