Dear FCDS Community, Since we opened our doors in 1936, our school has benefited from the generosity of our community and from the forward-thinking vision of our leaders. I am honored to share with you this year’s Annual Report. The following pages recognize and celebrate those who have given time, resources, and talent to FCDS. Our 80th year was a banner one thanks to the incredible philanthropic commitment to FCDS. For the second year in a row, 100 percent of current families, faculty, staff, and trustees contributed to the Annual Fund, our top giving priority. This level of commitment is rare among independent schools and is a testament to the strength of our community. A big thank you to Terilyn Esse and the Annual Fund volunteers who helped us realize this goal for a second consecutive year. I hope we can build on this momentum and position FCDS for continued success as a leading school for boys. In April, we celebrated the school’s 80th birthday with a Totally Awesome 80s Celebration that was a resounding success, surpassing $200,000 in dollars raised. Our dedicated co-chairs Kim Meier and Kate Worrell and their committee of volunteers put together a fabulous event with great auction items, delicious food, and a rocking 80’s band that had people dancing for hours. Our small community rallied together to stretch for this important fundraising event and the results were outstanding. Your investment in the Annual Fund and the 80th Celebration directly supports the incredible faculty, and enriches the experience for all students, from our youngest learners to our ninth graders. Your gifts enable us to further strengthen the priorities of the Annual Fund, which powerfully impact the School by: Providing student scholarships Renovation of the sport court ■■ New smart boards ■■ Increasing technology resources and training ■■ Musical instruments for the Lower School ■■ ■■

On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank everyone who has made Fairfield Country Day a philanthropic priority. Together, we give our boys an exceptional educational experience that prepares them for secondary school and beyond. As our comprehensive survey revealed, our community is proud to be part of Fairfield Country Day School and our parents believe that our boys are better off by being here. Just like our past leaders, our current Board is focused on the future and the financial wellbeing of FCDS. The Board will continue to oversee the School’s Strategic Plan and the continued development of excellence in learning for our boys. We look forward to another great year and I thank you in advance for supporting the School’s greatest financial needs through your gift to the Annual Fund. With gratitude and appreciation, Patrick Shaw Board of Trustees President

Letter from the Treasurer Kevin Harmon Dear FCDS Community, I am pleased to provide you with an overview of FCDS’ 2016-2017 fiscal year. This was an inspiring year for us with 100% participation in the Annual Fund from Trustees, faculty and staff, and every FCDS parent. Reaching this significant milestone for the second year in a row is something we should all take pride in, as very few independent schools have parent giving at this level. This level of support speaks to the gratitude that each one of us has in the teachers who are preparing our boys for success. Ongoing financial stewardship by the entire FCDS community remains vital, and we look forward to your continued support of the School. The commitment to conservative oversight of the School’s finances remains a hallmark of the Board of Trustees. The School’s financial position relies on several factors. Most important among those, enrollment has a major impact on the financial health of any school. While like many independent schools we do see our enrollment fluctuate, FCDS has positive momentum, and we look forward to steady enrollment growth. In addition, we achieved meaningful progress towards meeting the goals outlined in the 2014-2019 Strategic Plan, which include substantial debt elimination and a comprehensive review of financial sustainability. We believe our actions will enable FCDS to maintain its current standard of excellence and position the School for long-term success. Your support of the Annual Fund enabled us to provide faculty and staff with meaningful professional development opportunities and enhancements to our curriculum, and to make necessary improvements to the School’s physical plant (most notably the complete refurbishment of the Worthington Johnson Skating Rink). While the majority of our revenue comes from tuition, monies earned from auxiliary programs and philanthropic support are essential to enabling the School to meet our mission. Looking ahead, your ongoing support of the Annual Fund will be critical in allowing us to better serve our boys and expand the opportunities available to them as part of the Fairfield Country Day School experience. As we move into 2017-2018, we hold strong in our commitment to preserve FCDS’ financial profile by conservatively managing the School’s finances, while providing the faculty and administration with the resources required to deliver an exceptional education to our boys. On behalf of the Board of Trustees, administration, faculty, staff, and the boys, thank you for your dedication and generosity to Fairfield Country Day. Sincerely, Kevin Harmon Treasurer

The FCDS Annual Fund R What is it?

“ My son feels like FCDS is an extension of his family.” Like most independent schools, Fairfield Country Day School has an annual appeal each school year to raise funds that support the operating budget of FCDS. These funds help close the gap between tuition income and operating expenses. Donors to the Annual Fund provide resources that help propel FCDS forward as a leader in all boys’ education. The Annual Fund covers approximately 7% of our operating budget each year and ensures that we are able to provide each boy with the incredible opportunities that are the hallmarks of the Fairfield Country Day School experience. For more information on the Annual Fund and other frequently asked questions, please visit:

A Look Back at FCDS Philanthropy Over the Last Twenty Years The Annual Fund has made it possible for FCDS to build a legacy of excellence in educating boys. Your support of the Annual Fund demonstrates your belief in a Fairfield Country Day School education and is an investment in our students, our faculty and staff, our campus, and our future. Over the last twenty years, the Annual Fund has helped support the operating budget by covering costs such as sports gear, science lab equipment, props for the spring musical, and library books. In addition to the everyday expenses of running a school, gifts to the Annual Fund have helped support major investments in our campus like faculty housing, the loop expansion, campus lighting, and renovations to the hockey rink. Your support of the Annual Fund has a lasting impact on the future of Fairfield Country Day, allowing us to be the best school for boys.

ANNUAL REPORT 2016-2017

100% Parent Participation Challenge Parent Giving by Class We are proud to say that for the second year in a row, 100 percent of current families, faculty, staff, and trustees made a gift to the Annual Fund. This achievement is almost unheard of among independent schools and it is a true testament to the strength of our community. The philanthropic spirit that infuses FCDS is a distinguishing feature of our community. Our families believe in the value of a Fairfield Country Day education and recognize the unparalleled educational experiences we offer boys. A special thank you to the generous donor who offered a challenge gift as a reward for 100% of our current families participating in the 16-17 Annual Fund. Our ability to fulfill our mission and educate boys relies on the generosity of those within our community.

Thank you parents for your support of the Annual Fund! When you contribute, you become a part of a long tradition of helping ensure FCDS remains the top school for boys.

Paige ’62 Legacy Fund

Mr. Phil Gardner

The Paige ’62 Legacy Fund is an endowed fund at FCDS that provides financial resources to allow our talented faculty and staff to take advantage of a wide range of professional development opportunities. The fund is named after retired Head of Upper School and FCDS alum Cliff Paige ’62. After graduating from FCDS, Cliff came back through the Blue Door in 1987, this time as a teacher. During his twenty-nine years teaching at Fairfield Country Day School, he played a significant role in the success of the School.

The Paige ’62 Legacy Fund honors not only Cliff’s impact on the school, but the legacy of each ninth grade boy graduating from FCDS. This fund was established to celebrate our graduates and recognize the legacy they leave behind. For this reason, it is tradition for the parents of the ninth grade class to make their Annual Fund contribution to the Paige’62 Legacy Fund.

FCDS Parents’ Association FCDS parents play a special role in their sons’ education and in the success of our school. Recognizing the importance of the parent/school relationship, the FCDS Parents’ Association (PA) has created a strong partnership to enhance the connection between families and the School. The PA actively encourages parent participation and offers many ways to get involved. From the speaker series to the Book Fair, being a room parent, helping in the Learning Commons, or attending and helping at PA sponsored social events, there are a range of opportunities to support the students. Parents often say that volunteering enriches their own lives as well as their sons. Left to Right Melanie Master, Heidi Kuchta, Missy Harmon, Dana Lawlor and Kirsten Murphy.

ANNUAL REPORT 2016-2017

Parents’ Association Spring 2017 Fundraiser Totally Awesome 80s Celebration What a night! On April 29th, more than 200 parents and friends attended the Parents’ Association’s Totally Awesome 80s Celebration in honor of the School’s 80th year educating boys. The evening was highlighted by an incredible array of 80’s themed outfits, great food, fun 80’s music by Rubix Cube, and fabulous auction items. The positive energy translated into significant funds being raised for FCDS with net proceeds exceeding $200,000. The paddle raise portion of the event generated over $60,000 and these funds immediately supported high priority needs. Event chairs Kim Meier and Kate Worrell, with the help of their event committee, worked tirelessly to put together an evening that had everyone celebrating the eighties and Fairfield Country Day School. Thank you to everyone who sponsored, donated, bid, and attended! Your support of FCDS is a true testament to our community.
