Community Weekend Kick-Starts Blair’s 175th Year
Chris Palanca

There’s no better way to kick off the start of the school year, and bring students and faculty together, than Blair’s Community Weekends. Two jam-packed weekends of activities united the community in tradition and gave Blair students the opportunity to work together while showing off their school spirit. Highlights included Soccerfest, where Buccaneers showed their esprit de corps with face paint and signs as they rallied to support the varsity soccer teams against Sparta High School. Though rain moved students into the halls of the Field House this year on Super Sunday, each dorm worked together to build boats out of cardboard and duct tape, which they raced across Wallace Pool for the annual Kon-Tiki boat race. Next, students took their best shot at soaking Head of School Peter Curran in the dunk tank before they flew down the much-anticipated Soap Slide.
