Janet Kretschmer: Celebration of Life

As most of you know, Janet Kretschmer was our founding Head of School, Lead Teacher and McGuffey visionary. Janet passed away last August after a long-fought battle with cancer. After Janet’s retirement in 2011, she volunteered every day in the Primary Classroom which two of her daughters—Wendy and Susie—founded.

You are invited to come celebrate her magnificence in person or in spirit on June 2nd, 2018. Please write down the date on a 3×5 card, and tuck it lovingly in your pocket.

1-3pm, McGuffey Open House: Whether you’re a friend of alum, take an opportunity to visit the spectacular legacy Janet leaves behind.

At Tom & Wendy’s house:

5–7pm, Dinner and drinks: Come early if you want more time to visit with friends.
7–8pm, Music/social hour: Papa Joe and other musicians will be playing, also a great time to visit with friends.
8–9pm, Memories: A time where people can reflect and tell stories. Open to all, so feel free to speak!
9pm, Lighting of lanterns/luminaries in Janet’s garden. A time to “send” your message to an amazing lady.

If you are unable to attend, but wish to send a message to Janet, we will write them on a luminary/lantern and light it in your honor. Please email any words from afar to: wendy@wendyandtom.com
