On Friday afternoon, special parent social gatherings were held for each form, including the Sixth Form Keyes Patio Dedication. 怀特感谢这些家庭的支持,使凯斯的改造成为现实. She pointed out that the patio is a gift for the entire school; it is a gathering and meeting area to enjoy each other’s company in the Martlet spirit of community building. Lisa Rocchio P’24, who chaired the Class of 2024 Gift Committee, 委员会将庭院设想为一个“包容的空间和学生想要聚集的地方”, share meals, collaborate on schoolwork or just hang out. 从我这个周末听到的消息来看,在这短短的几个月里,它已经变成了这一切,甚至更多!”
 
Elizabeth Pruellage ’24, student activity co-leader, 评论说,除了一个聚会的地方,露台也可以在忙碌的一天中作为一个安静的地方.
