Faculty and Administrators Talk About the Endowment Fund
“For me, one incredible benefit of working at Eagle Hill has always been the tremendous support provided for ongoing professional development: attending conferences on a variety of topics, purchasing new and specialized researchbased materials, co-teaching to mentor new teachers, not to mention the time provided to collaborate with colleagues.” Wendy Salisbury, Director of Education “There is an intellectual excitement throughout the campus that encourages faculty to share information … It is a place where the best are challenged daily and supported in the quest to further individual professional growth and development.”
Ellen Clifford, Department Head, Speech and Language

At the heart of Eagle Hill is its faculty, all of whom are dedicated to the education of children with learning disabilities. Through the resources provided by the endowment fund, they are able to analyze new research processes and programs, develop innovative teaching practices, and design customized learning plans for every child.


A Message from Ken deRegt, Chairman Board of Trustees
On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I welcome you to our Annual Benefit for Eagle Hill School – Fiesta del Sol. This year’s event gives us an opportunity to enhance our Endowment Fund, a critical component in our ongoing commitment to scholarships and faculty development. Thank you in advance for your support! I’d like to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to our EHS faculty for their dedication to academic endeavors and to the success of this benefit. A heartfelt thank you to Benefit Co-Chairs, Kim Augustine and Barbara Walsh, and to Silent Auction Chair Chris Nichols: Their endless enthusiasm and energy are the reason this benefit will be an evening you won’t want to miss. Special thanks to our Development Office – Brook Urban, Kathleen Rinaldi, Christie Fountain, and Sandy Aitchison, as well as the Parents Association and the many volunteers who have contributed countless hours preparing for this benefit. Most importantly, thank you to Mark and Rayma Griffin. Since they will be retiring in June 2009, this is their last Annual Benefit before they have the luxury of returning as guests only. Be sure to catch Mark this year as he brings the gavel down on years of auctioneering!

A Message from Dr. Mark Griffin, Headmaster
Dear Parents and Friends of Eagle Hill, Buenas Noches! We are absolutely delighted that you are able to join us for this wonderful evening as we go south of the border and experience the ultimate “Fiesta del Sol” prepared and orchestrated by our extraordinary Benefit Committee. Just when it seems that our world is too demanding, too challenging, filled with things to do, and simply not great fun, our Benefit Committee rescues all of us and beckons us to put on our jeans and enjoy the warmth of a southwestern sun as we partake of a fabulous evening in the glow of Eagle Hill’s own Fiesta del Sol!! Images of warm breezes, aqua waters, white sand beaches, a cool margarita in our hands, and the accompanying sound of good music will melt our cares away. Browse the incredible silent auction items, sample the wonderful and endlessly varied food, test your moves on the dance floor, and join us in a celebration of the special community that is Eagle Hill! Somehow, each and every year, the Parents Association with its outstanding leadership creates another benchmark evening that contributes to our robust Benefit lore. This year’s dynamic duo of Kim Augustine and Barbara Walsh has once again raised the bar for those who follow. The entire proceeds from this spectacular evening will support our growing Endowment Fund, faculty professional development, the continued “greening” of Eagle Hill and the expansion of technology in our classrooms. As we all know well, a very strong endowment is a critical factor in maintaining the excellence of Eagle Hill as an independent school. The ability to attract and retain an outstanding faculty, increase our ability to award meaningful financial aid to deserving students, and continue to provide our faculty with the professional development and resources they need are immeasurably enhanced by the funds generated from endowment income. The silent and live auction items available for you to take home are really spectacular and every bit as unique as the Fiesta del Sol itself. We encourage you to bid often and “reach for the sun” with your bidding paddle as we support the very foundation of Eagle Hill, which is so critical to our children’s success. With heartfelt thanks from the children and faculty of Eagle Hill. Dr. Mark J. Griffin Headmaster


Hola and Welcome to Fiesta del Sol!
We are thrilled to be celebrating with you tonight for many different reasons. Tonight’s event is bittersweet because while we are celebrating our beloved school, we are also celebrating Mark and Rayma’s last auction at Eagle Hill. We do look forward to ONE more wonderful year with them before the sun sets on their retirement. Please join us in making their last auction a big fiesta! In all of the excitement of tonight and the fun that will be had, it is easy to forget the purpose of the evening. In addition to bringing the entire EHS community together, this night is about raising money for our school’s endowment. Proceeds from this evening will enable EHS to support teacher salaries, professional development, housing and other benefits, academic programs, financial aid, athletics, student activities, field trips and technology. Fiesta del Sol is the culmination of many months of hard work by so many people. We were excited to help with the benefit because we love the school, but we never realized the impact it would have on our experience here. We have made lifelong friends, for which we will be eternally grateful. We have so many people to thank. Our hardworking committee members were tireless and so supportive along the way. Thank you. We could not have done this without each and every one of you. We hope you all had as much fun as we did. To Chris Nichols who chaired the Silent Auction, we owe you big time. Thank you to Brook Urban, our mentor and “mom”, who led the way with a calm determination that always made us feel like everything would be okay! Also, many thanks to Kathy Rinaldi, Christie Fountain, and Sandy Aitchison in the Development Office for their support. Muchas gracias to Alisa Savitz and Jill Brack who took us under their wings with many words of wisdom and endless acts of kindness! They encouraged us every step of the way. A huge thank you to our Chairman of the Board, Ken deRegt, whose leadership is unparalleled in every way. Thank you to the entire Board of Trustees, our donors and underwriters, the teachers and staff at EHS, and of course, our remarkable duo, Mark and Rayma Griffin. Most importantly, thank you all for supporting this evening, and the school. No matter what you have done to help, big or small, GRACIAS, THANK YOU. Have fun this evening and enjoy the Fiesta! Gracias! Thank you! Kim Augustine Benefit Co-Chair Barbara Walsh Benefit Co-Chair

Sign your name and bidder number and the item is yours. You will pay a premium for the luxury of this efficient way to secure the item, but think about it … the money is going to Eagle Hill!

Eagle Hill is a language-based, remedial program committed to educating children with learning disabilities. The curriculum is individualized, interdisciplinary, and transitional in nature. A secure, structured, nurturing environment, supports and stimulates the development of the whole child. As a result, children learn to view themselves as competent individuals with a strong sense of self.

In an environment that recognizes and embraces diversity, Eagle Hill teaches children an array of strategies and skills to manage their learning disabilities effectively at school and at home. Eagle Hill helps children gain the self-esteem necessary to initiate, nurture, and maintain friendships. Inherent in the Eagle Hill philosophy is development of children with strong moral and ethical character.

Children leave Eagle Hill with confidence in their academic abilities, a true belief in their worth as human beings, and the strategies necessary to meet the challenges of their new school and social settings.

1982 Léoville-Las Cases One Case (12 bottles)
This is a rare opportunity to own (and taste!) this extraordinary wine. According to Robert Parker, “this youthful yet profoundly complex wine gets my nod as the finest Léoville-Las Cases ever made. It reveals massive proportions yet extraordinary purity, elegance and balance.

This unctuously textured, gorgeously rich, pure super concentrated, low acid effort concludes with a 45+ second finish. There is still tannin to shed in this unbelievably fresh, lively, full-bodied, vibrant wine.” Anticipated maturity: 20062035. Rated 100.

12 Bottles of Individually Signed 2004 Chateau Lafite Rothschild Pauillac
On just taste alone, this wine is a standout. When you factor in that every bottle has been individually signed by Robert de Rothschild, then you have something to truly treasure and enjoy. The Wine Enthusiast said this was “a beautiful wine, concentrated and intense without tasting in any way extracted or forced. It has tannins, certainly, ver y dark and concentrated, but the fruit is black, powerful, rich, yet still maintaining purity and a sense of minerality from the vineyard.”Score: 98. The Wine Advocate: “This beautiful,

stunningly dense purple-colored effort (includes about 90 percent cabernet sauvignon) offers up precise notes of graphite, black cherries, cassis, scorched earth, and minerals. Medium to full-bodied with fabulous fruit, impressive richness, refreshing acidity, and sweet tannin, this beauty should be approachable in four to five years, and last for three decades.” Score: 95.
