Wildcat Weekend - Homecoming & Reunion

In October of each year, we welcome alumni from all years to Wildcat Weekend, a spirited weekend filled with athletic events, an alumni panel, a reception with the headmaster and faculty, reunion year dinners, and more.

Alumni Hall of Fame Dinner

The Alumni Hall of Fame was created by the Alumni Executive Board to recognize alumni for their post-RCDS accomplishments. The Alumni Hall of Fame dinner is held every other year (even-numbered years) during Wildcat Weekend. The 2018 Alumni Hall of Fame Dinner was held on Friday, October 12.



Thanksgiving Games

A twenty-five-year tradition at RCDS, this annual event attracts alumni and their families who come together to visit with their coaches and re-live their glory days as RCDS athletes. RCDS alumni return year after year to play hockey and basketball and to visit with Coach Frank Effinger, Coach Gil Castagna, Coach John Sabia, Athletic Director Wendy Haft, and others. The games and reception take place on the Friday evening following Thanksgiving. 2018 Thanksgiving games will be held on Friday, November 23.

Networking Panel and Reception

A panel of accomplished alumni share their career experiences, followed by a reception and a chance to meet alumni leaders in diverse industries. This event is open to the senior class and all alumni. Alumni who are building their network, exploring careers, or considering a career transition are encouraged to attend.

Regional Alumni Receptions

RCDS arranges several events and receptions throughout the North East and across the country. Check "Upcoming Events" in the e-Newsletters or the registrations available above to see if there is an upcoming reception close by.

Blue & Gold Dinner

Every year, the Senior Class gathers shortly before graduation for the Blue & Gold Dinner, sponsored by the Alumni & Development Office. During that dinner, we honor the graduating class as the newest members of our alumni community. The Alumni Executive Board joins the seniors as we celebrate their accomplishments and welcome them to the Alumni Association.

Headmaster's Circle Reception

Each fall, the Headmaster and the Board of Trustees invites Annual Giving donors at the $2,500 level and above to a reception honoring their generosity and celebrating the success of the previous year's campaign.

2019 Blue & Gold Dinner [Photo Gallery]

The Class of 2019 gathered with faculty, administrators, and members of the Alumni Executive Board for a celebratory dinner to welcome them into the School's 150-year-old Alumni Association. Upper School English teacher Iain Pollock was chosen by the students to deliver the keynote remarks.

As our 98 youngest alumni go off to college, they will be counting on newly elected Class Agents, Laszlo Kopits, Hannah Zimmerman, and Nathalie Felton, who were announced at the dinner, to represent and guide them on how to be meaningfully involved with the School, their peers, and other alumni.
