Rutgers Prep’s second annual Spirit Week packed plenty of performances, competitions, and themes into a snowday stinted week.
Despite having to overcome Mother Nature’s hurdles, the Spirit Week Committee, led by Lindsey Schafer ’15 and Gabrielle Redden ’17 successfully brought the entire community together, with Middle and Lower School Students participating in the Prep Rally.
A special thank you to Aniket Shah ’15 and his family for generously do- nating the donuts to the Breakfast Blast.
The complementary breakfast gave students a chance to socialize, relax, and watch their classmates compete in the Pie Eating Contest.
Lastly, Council wrapped up the sea- son with the Winter Ball on February 20th.
Thanks to the hard work from committee members, as well as support from the community, Winter Ball was a success!
During the months December and January, School Council continued an annual tradition, the Toy Drive.
In a true display of teamwork, Council worked together to plan a donation to the Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital.
This selfless donation would not have been possible without the caring, thoughtful personalities of the members of our community. With the help of students and faculty, we bought $800 worth of toys to deliver.
A group of students and faculty made the trip to hand deliver the fifteen bags full of toys to the hospital (pic- tures from this event can be seen on the School Council Bulletin Board).
In an exclusive interview with February’s School Council “Member of the Month”, Lindsey Schafer ’15, explained her connection to the event.
“Since Marc and I both volunteer in the hospital where we dropped off the toys, we know firsthand how much the kids love getting new stuff, even things as little as games and toys. Being a part of a community such as Prep’s, one that gives back to a place that’s important to me, is a really amazing thing to see.”
