The ’20s Roar Again at Winter Ball
Ashley Schreyer

While the melodies of Bing Crosby and Bessie Smith were not ringing through the Romano Dining Hall on Saturday, the “Roaring ’20s” were still alive and well at this year’s annual Winter Ball. To kick off the evening, seniors gathered at the Sharpe House for photos and refreshments with Head of School Peter G. Curran and his wife, Sarah. Across campus, ninth-, 10th- and 11th-grade students joined together in the Chiang-Elghanayan Center for Innovation and Collaboration to snap a few selfies to commemorate the occasion.

Inside the dining hall, a creative committee of parents engineered a time portal to transport students back to the “Roaring ’20s.” Filled with jazz-era decor, the room offered extravagant dining to students and featured a lavish dessert spread. With a full dance floor, students enjoyed one another’s company and celebrated the start of the new semester.
