THANK YOU to the hundreds of members of the Delbarton community who made
the two days of #DelbartonTOGETHER truly inspiring.
You posted, tweeted, shared, and gave in honor of classmates, teachers, coaches and monks. Together as a community, all of us--parents, alumni, students, faculty, and staff—came together virtually in support of one another.
TOGETHER we ensure Delbarton grows back stronger.
#DelbartonTOGETHER is a 48-hour celebration of gratitude and giving. Together as a community, parents, alumni, students, faculty, staff, virtually celebrate all that Delbarton has done to meet the moment and come back stronger.
In a very disruptive world, where Fr. Michael encourages us to "wake up, stand up, and speak up" about racism, we seek to "chart a path forward in doing what we can to build a community of justice and peace at Delbarton, and in our nation." We hope this community-wide event gives us all the opportunity to truly come together in support of one another.
The reach of the current crisis has been both global and hyper-local. At Delbarton, when students left campus on their last day of classes before Spring Break, none of them dreamed they would not return for the remainder of the term. Since mid-March, the Delbarton Experience has gone virtual, but a talented and devoted faculty and administration have made sure that distance learning does not equal isolated learning. In the truest sense of Succisa Virescit, Delbarton has prevailed over the challenge of distance and truly come together.
In our current crisis, Delbarton School has committed to "leaving no boy behind." No student enrolled for 2020-21 will have to leave Delbarton School for financial reasons. The Delbarton Fund has been tasked with responding to this and other emergency needs at this time. The Delbarton Fund is an essential, strategic resource that funds both anticipated budget items and, in times like this, those unanticipated emergency needs that must be answered. The Delbarton Fund allows the school to respond swiftly to new challenges in extraordinary times. As we endeavor to address current needs and plan for an uncertain future, the Delbarton Fund is KEY to that plan.
#DelbartonTOGETHER is as much about gratitude as it is about giving. We encourage you to share #DelbartonTOGETHER with your social networks. On social media, wear your Delbarton gear and post a picture or video. Express gratitude for a faculty member. Honor a student or a whole class. Recognize an athlete or a team. Make sure to share your support for Delbarton and post on Facebook (be sure to tag Delbarton School - Official Page), Twitter, and Instagram with #DelbatonTOGETHER.
