With the arrival of hot August days, we’re seeking out Vermont’s best swimming holes and ice cream spots. The weather is also a gentle reminder that our students will soon be making their way to the Hill. We are hopeful that fall will feel more like a “normal” year at Putney with the return of traditions like Harvest Festival.
The days are getting warmer and longer here on the Hill, and we are once again preparing for the end of the school year. Though we will miss them dearly, we can’t wait to send our students off into the wider world to make their mark.
While we have worked hard to make the most of this cold weather, from kicking off Dorm Olympics with a skate to once again turning the pasture behind Noyes into our own private slopes, we couldn’t be happier to have spring just on the horizon.
We have reached the end of a strange and challenging year. Our students continue to be a great source of inspiration — and we are pleased to report they have all returned home safely.
In a time of social distancing and increased isolation, many of us are finding more need for community than ever before. With this in mind, we are initiating an email newsletter to alumni and friends as a supplement to the Putney Post that is printed twice annually.
