First, a proud shout out to the cast (70+ strong!), crew, and pit musicians of our winter musical Bring It On!, which opened last night to cheer-ful fanfare. Special gratitude to our performing arts team and to the many parents who provided food, decorations, and pep talks at home this week. It takes a theatrical village at Pingree. Break a leg tonight, Cast B!
Here at Pingree, we are constantly evaluating why we do what we do. Is it pedagogically sound? Is it mission-centered? Will this serve our students for their futures? And so on. Proudly watching the emerging identities on stage last night and their ability to take on complex issues, some things seem obvious; but it's important to ask: Why coeducation?
