Dear Alumni Community,
I hope everyone has been enjoying the summer and is looking forward to a wonderful school year.
Since graduating from Portledge School in 2010, I have remained quite active at the school and still find it a place that can be called home. From a student walking the halls to class or hustling to the gym for practice to passing through today’s beautiful and modern facilities, I am proud to have been associated with Portledge over these many years and have watched its transformation.
As alumni, one of the many things we have in common is an appreciation of the principles and practices we learned at Portledge. The Alumni Association is dedicated to working in partnership with the school, current students, and alumni to continue to spread the mission of Portledge and nurture relationships to promote goodwill and pride, professional growth, communication, and social interaction. Life at Portledge does not end when we graduate; it continues, grows, and thrives. The Alumni Association wants all alumni to feel excited and motivated so that they will be more active in participating as a member of the Alumni Association.
We are in a distinct position to be able to give back to Portledge, not just monetarily, though that is, of course, always welcome. There are many ways to give back, from career and academic mentoring to volunteering at events to simply attending academic, social, and athletic events.
Portledge School has some exciting events this fall that I would like to share with you.
Alumni Fall Reunion
Alumni Holiday Reunion
Where: Proper West, New York City
When: December 6, 7-10 p.m.
We are hopeful that you, your friends, and fellow alums will return to campus for Founders Day, join us at the Oyster Bay Brewery following the day’s festivities, and attend the holiday reunion in New York City. Portledge events and Alumni reunions are a wonderful way to stay connected with the school and alumni community. We look forward to seeing many of you there.
Please continue to check the Portledge website and the Alumni section frequently to stay updated on events at Portledge.
Wherever you go in the world, remember that you always have a place at Portledge.
