With the 4th of July just around the corner, many of you probably have vacation on your minds. Vacations are on our minds too.
But there’s another reason we are thinking about vacationing. With the new Class of 2019, we are receiving lots of Parent Record Forms from our new families. Those forms are vital to us, because we rely on parents and families to keep an accurate physical address and email on file so that we can communicate with you. We use email for most of our outreach to parents – so if your email changes, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org or use this update form (though it says Alumni, it is meant for parents too! You fill out the first page and then can skip ahead to the sections you need as applicable).
When our office or others are hosting events, we tend to invite folks within that city or town. And most of the time that’s great, but it doesn’t take into account people who might have another location they spend a lot of time in (the example from Philadelphia, where I grew up, was that some people had a place at the Jersey Shore for the summer). So if you have another address that you spend part of the year in, please use that same update form and enter your information (first page, then skip to the Seasonal page). And that way if we are hosting something in your seasonal area, we can be aware of that as we plan invitations.
We have two end-of-summer events coming up in the Northeast that may catch some of you during vacations. Information is below, and if you will be in the area and want more details we can get it to you (be sure to click on the link in the invite to provide your contact information).
As we look to the beginning of the 2015-16 school year, we are holding two ‘end of summer’ receptions for Wake Foresters in the Martha’s Vineyard and Watch Hill areas. Wake Forest students and parents will be able to hear from Provost Rogan Kersh (’86), who will be in attendance.
If you live in the area or will be vacationing then**, we would love for you to join us at one of these receptions:
Sunday, August 9
Martha’s Vineyard, MA
– or –
Monday, August 10
Watch Hill, RI
If you are interested in attending one or both of these receptions, please click here. Details about the event will be emailed to you later this summer, once they are finalized.
** Wake Forest holds events throughout the country. If you would like to be included in invitations to events in other areas beside your permanent address, please provide your seasonal address. (Note: this form is used for alumni and parent record updates; complete the first page and then skip forward to Seasonal Address).
