President of the Alumnae Association

Dear Oldfields Alumnae and Friends,

As I look at Oldfields today, I can't help but think that Anna Austen McCulloch would be so proud of how her little school has grown over the last 152 years. From the very first, Anna taught girls subjects that, back then, were strictly for boys. Following in that forward-thinking tradition, Oldfields continues to shape and inspire young women today.

As alumnae, Oldfields is now in our collective rear view mirror, but that doesn't mean we can't be part of Oldfields' present and future. Let's take a page out of Anna Austen McCullough's playbook and continue to inspire the young women of today. Alumnae support has and continues to be crucial to the success of Oldfields.

Let's join our wonderful Head of School David G. Perfield, along with our amazing faculty and staff, in enabling our school to thrive and grow. You can do your part by making a donation (big or small), joining the mentoring program, hosting or attending an Oldfields event, writing a class note for the Magazine, or simply recommending a future "Oldfields Girl" to the Admissions Office!

Finally, mark your calendars now for Alumnae Weekend 2020! It will be held April 24-26, 2020, and I hope to see lots of old and new friends join me in making the trip home!

Many thanks for all you do, and please stay in touch!

Take care,

Lulu Laubenstein ’72
President, Oldfields Alumnae Association

A Note from Cinda '64

When I became a member of the Alumnae Association Board, I was asked to write a few words to my fellow alumnae. I answered with a big heartfelt "Yes."

The most wonderful news is that Oldfields will be 150 years old in 2017. WOW! In today's world, that's pretty good stuff and pretty impressive. Not many girls' schools survive that length of time. Our School has endured because many people, just like you, have felt a shared sense of responsibility for Oldfields – largeness of heart, indeed.

My class was a close-knit one, and some of the friends I made at Oldfields are, today, among my closest friends. I hope those reading these words feel the same way about their classmates, friends, and experiences at Oldfields.

Please return to Oldfields, remember your School, be as generous as you can be.
