FROM THE HEAD OF SCHOOL AND BOARD OF TRUSTEES PRESIDENT

BOAR D OF TR UST EES 2018–2019

Dear LJCDS Community, to the many donors and volunteers who so willingly and generously give their time, energy and financial resources to advance the LJCDS mission and support the great work of our teachers and students. Every gift of time and treasure, every gathering attended, and every moment taken out of your day to see the humanity in one another enhances the LJCDS experience. Your role in the LJCDS community—as alumni, parents, trustees, grandparents and friends—allows the board, administration and faculty to help tomorrow’s leaders find their purpose in a challenging and nurturing environment. For that, we are most grateful. We also give thanks and recognition to former Board of Trustees President Chris Richey, who had selflessly and tirelessly led the board for the past two years. His leadership was recognized by the California Association of Independent Schools and is instrumental to the long-term success of our school. The 2018–2019 school year was a time for both reflecting on our rich history and actively planning for the future. This past year, with your help, we graduated an incredibly thoughtful class of seniors, connected young students to mentors, challenged our students to take risks in their academic and co-curricular programs, provided robust educational opportunities for our community, and, day by day, sought to find greatness through acts of goodness. We put into motion a significant effort to reduce our carbon footprint, begin a nationally recognized health and wellness initiative and align resources to support the heart and soul of our school—our teachers. During the past year, the school enjoyed extraordinary financial support. Unrestricted gifts to the Country Day Fund grew by more than 16%, the largest increase in recent history. The $1.4 million in cumulative contributions provide critically important funds that account for about 4% of the annual operating budget. It has been a time of considerable progress and excitement as we look to the future with a sense of optimism and determination. Thank you for your support of LJCDS during the 2018–2019 academic year that fueled the excellence in student achievement, faculty accomplishment and institutional success that are hallmarks of our school.

I give back, not only as an alumna but also as an educator. I want to ensure that La Jolla Country Day School continues to make a difference in the lives of young children for years to come. Laurel Johnson ’12

Philanthropy Philanthropy plays a significant role at La Jolla Country Day School. Since our founding in 1926, we have benefited greatly from the support of parents, alumni, grandparents, board of trustees, faculty, staff and friends who continue to invest in excellence and lifelong learning. Philanthropy is the distinguishing factor between a good school and an exceptional school. LJCDS is grateful to our community and invites you to learn more about ways to become part of this tradition of giving.

The memories and contacts I made at LJCDS are what inspire me to stay connected to the school. Donating allows the school to improve and better support its students. I give back to LJCDS because I want future students to have the opportunity to have an impactful experience like my own. Shelby Todd ’16

I value my role as an LJCDS lifer because I have had the opportunity to grow up in one of the most uniquely inclusive communities. I have created some of my most cherished relationships with teachers and friends along the way, and earned an education that has enabled me to grow into a conscientious global citizen. Lauren Ziment ’20, LJCDS lifer

Blue Bash Giving Every spring, the Parents Association, in partnership with the Office of Philanthropy, hosts an evening fundraising event. Blue Bash raises money for tuition assistance, professional development, endowment and future Parents Association activities. Donors contribute in many ways, which include purchasing sponsorships or tickets to the event, participating in the silent and live auctions, and raising paddles in support of our funding priorities. We thank our Blue Bash Committee for their leadership and dedication to furthering our mission.

I return to Country Day because—even a decade after graduating—it has proven to be the most impactful institution I’ve ever been a part of. From the faculty who are deeply invested in your success to programs and experiences that extend far beyond the campus, Country Day is so much more than an education; it is a crucible of personal growth during one of the most transformative times in your life. Ian Han ’10

Special Gifts One of the most meaningful ways donors can make a difference is by designating their gift in honor or memory of a teacher, coach, mentor or program that has left a lasting impact on their growth and development. Others choose to highlight and recognize their children or grandchildren when giving back to LJCDS.

As someone who went through the Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools at Country Day, I had a lot of great learning opportunities that I wouldn’t have had in other school settings. It’s important to me as an alumnus to give back and help make sure other kids have the same quality of education. William Carleton ’11

With the aid of the Pritzker family, I was able to attend a neuroscience and psychology program at Yale University where I explored the brain from an interdisciplinary approach. In addition to the academic and research focus of the program, I met people from across the country and the world. I know that the friendships I have made with a diverse group of people who are interested in cognitive science will carry through with me as I pursue a career in this field. Danielle Amir-Lobel ’20
