UPCOMING EVENT

Upper School Dean of Students Breakfast

Tuesday, March 5th 2019

Location: National Cathedral School

Time: 8:00 – 10:00am

Our Deans’ Breakfast is a unique opportunity for our member school Upper School Deans of Students to come together and confidentially collaborate on issues of shared interest. The foundation for this annual conversation is our Upper School Student Leader Breakfast summary, which highlights the issues, dialogue, and insights students raised at this year’s breakfast event, without attribution to any specific student or school.  PCW provides the Deans with the Upper School Student Leader Breakfast summary in advance of the Deans’ Breakfast.

The Deans’ Breakfast is open to one upper school representative per member school only. No other participants are allowed.
