For those of you who were just here for Family Weekend, you got a glimpse of the beautiful fall that is unfolding here. Thought I would close out this week with some more pictures of the gorgeous reds you can see lately, as well as some good old fashioned fun-on-the-Quad pics.
Also, I found out an interesting piece of trivia from one of my good friends at Reynolda House. My gushing about the stunning stretch of Reynolda that is tree-lined has a backstory, as told by my friend: “Katharine Smith Reynolds paid to have Reynolda Road paved, making it one of the first paved roads in the state. She also had the original maple trees planted along the road, creating the canopy of color each fall.” City planning and an artist’s eye at once! My thanks to Katharine Smith Reynolds for her vision.
Before you let the weekend begin, take time to call your students. Hope you dressed for Black and Gold Friday today, and hope you have a great weekend, Deac families!
