Pingry welcomed its nine newest members during the Upper School Fall Awards Assembly.
Students are finished with classes for the year but there is still plenty of Pingry activity both on and off campus. Pingry's Big Blue Summer day camp is in full swing and campers are enjoying swimming, arts and crafts, and many other games. Upper School students are taking their studies abroad and, through the School's offerings in Global Programs, traveling to Italy, Greece, and South Korea. Meanwhile, members of the faculty head to Cyprus, Iceland, and the Galapagos Islands for summer fellowships.
In equally exciting news, an anonymous group of donors has come together to do something extraordinary for the School. They are encouraging participation in the 2017 Pingry Fund with two different "giving challenges," one for parents and one for alumni. (If you are a Pingry alumnus/a and also a current Pingry parent, your gift will count toward both challenges!)
Challenge #1: Parents
Moving Up with Pingry Pride
If 300 parents who have not yet contributed to the 2017 Pingry Fund make a gift by June 30, the School will receive an additional $30,000! Make your gift today!
Challenge #2: Alumni
450 for $50,000
If 450 alumni who have not yet contributed to the 2017 Pingry Fund make a gift by June 30, the School will receive an additional $50,000! Make your gift today!
Pingry Fund gifts impact every aspect of a Pingry education, including professional growth opportunities for (and retention of) our faculty, installation of new technology, enhancements to the fine and visual arts programs, resources for athletic teams, financial aid for current students, and much more. Show your Pingry pride today by contributing to the challenge, and help the School take advantage of these amazing opportunities!
