Class of 2024 senior class gift

Upgrading the Assembly Room Sound System

Participation Goal: 100% for senior parents

A wonderful Chapin tradition now in its 35th year, the Senior Class Gift is a special initiative that celebrates the culmination of our children’s Chapin experience through a lasting legacy for future students. It also replaces our Annual Giving support for the 2023-2024 school year.

Funds raised through this year’s Senior Class Gift will support an upgraded sound system in the Assembly Room. Central to the Chapin experience, the Assembly Room is a space where community is forged, where girls develop their performance skills, where they listen to inspiring speakers, and where, on June 12, the Class of 2024 will come together one last time for a special Assembly prior to their Commencement.

The new equipment, the first phase of which has been installed, has already significantly enhanced intelligibility and clarity throughout the space with the installation of new digital-signal-processing speakers; an upgraded wireless-microphone system that supports handheld, stationary and Lavalier mics; and a new audio server that offers both livestreaming capabilities as well as improved accessibility for the hearing-impaired. The Senior Class Gift will also support the additional equipment needed to ensure that this system is fully functional and up to date.

With the help of parents of the Class of 2024, Chapin can boast a sound system worthy of its students’ talents and of the wonderful programming that takes place year-round in our treasured Assembly Room.
