Ms. Schurdak has been working as an administrator with this age group for over 20 years and is excited to join Pingry, having been struck “by the commitment of the Middle School faculty to educating middle schoolers… They are both serious and joyful about their work.”
Not surprisingly, over the course of more than 150 years of Pingry history, the School has amassed some fascinating artifacts. From antique printing blocks to Dr. Pingry’s handwritten documents to school catalogues from the 1800s, they live in the Pingry School Archives.
Each month, we take pleasure in showcasing some of the more compelling items here, and "flashing back" to a bit of Pingry history. So, come on in and join us in a "virtual" visit to The Pingry School Archives.
