Peddie Week 2020 is well underway! Activities and competitions have taken place throughout the week in the lead-up to Saturday, November 7, when the Buccaneer athletic teams will take on the arch-rival Falcons in a series of livestreamed events. The winning school will earn the 2020 Cup at the conclusion of Saturday’s contests.
Peddie Week has been a little different this year as both schools endeavor to keep community members healthy and well. Nevertheless, students and teachers have celebrated the 117-year Blair-Peddie rivalry with many traditions that have reminded Blair family members why it’s great to be a Buc.
Associate Dean of Students Andee Ryerson hopes that this week will help students feel a sense of normalcy. “Having familiar events like Peddie Day can be so great for our students’ morale,” she said. “I hope it brings good energy and spirit to our campus as we move into November.”
Throughout Peddie Week, students and teachers showed their spirit during themed dress-up days that featured beachwear, “dress to impress,” pajamas and more. They made lots of “Beat Peddie” banners to hang around campus and took part in new traditions, including a senior celebration, a Soccerfest contest on the turf and flag football.
Friday will be the most action-packed day of the week, with the annual pep rally, senior torch parade and bonfire. Be sure to check Blair’s website, where we will continue to share photos and videos.
