Letter from Emily Litman '89 and Oscar Velez '89
Dear Fellow Alumni,
Did you sing in the PBS special with Peter, Paul, and Mary? Did you work on the Dona Nobis Pacem poster that won the contest put on by the Hungarian Peace Council and was shown in Hungary, East Germany (at a NATO conference), and ended up displayed at the United Nations? Do you remember Las Posadas, Passover and the many celebrations and traditions at Mustard Seed School? How many jars of baby food did your class collect?
Mustard Seed School is more than a school that builds a solid academic foundation and essential life skills. It is a community of life-long learners. It is a community that cares about each other, the local community, and the global community. And it is our community.
Whether you graduated back in the early days or are a recent alum, you are an important part of the story and history of Mustard Seed School. Throughout our time as students, we were celebrated each year for the gifts that we brought to the community. Some of us have still have our buttons with the words that celebrated us as Music Lover, Mathematical, or Diligent. Each of us were known by name by the faculty and staff. Each of us made our mark on the community.
Now, as you make your mark on the world, we hope that you stay involved with the school. We invite you to reconnect if you have been out of touch. Send us an email at email@example.com to let us know what you are doing. You can also become a fan on Facebook to receive regular updates and join our mailing list. If you have news of other classmates, please send it along, too.
We hope to hear from you soon.
Emily Litman ‘89
Oscar Velez ‘89
