Dear Pingry Parents,


As you may recall, in early July we sent an email regarding the search for our next Head of School, and the ways in which the Search Committee would be actively soliciting your feedback (including an online survey, which was emailed to you on July 27, and remains available at We are pleased to follow up with an invitation to attend one of two "listening meetings" for current parents, to be held on both the Basking Ridge and Short Hills Campuses on Tuesday, September 11.


We recognize that next week—the first (almost) full week of the new school year—is a busy one, with several parent events already planned. In an effort to hear from as many of you as possible in a timely fashion, Tuesday was the date selected. In addition to the PSPA All-School Parent Meeting the following day, during which we will provide an update on the search process, we are offering these two other opportunities to provide the Search Committee with your feedback. Topics covered will echo those outlined in the survey: the qualities you feel are most important for Pingry's next Head of School to possess, what areas you feel the School could improve on, and what opportunities are on the horizon for our next Head.


If you are interested, you are welcome to attend one of the following two meetings:


Head Search Parent Listening Meetings on Tuesday, September 11

Short Hills Campus: 5:00 p.m.–6:00 p.m. (Chen Dining Commons)

Basking Ridge Campus: 7:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m. (Macrae Theater)


For those of you who have already completed the survey, your feedback has been most helpful. We look forward to your additional insights, and wish you and your families a happy start to the school year.
