    Blair Week – Who dressed to impress?

    One of the best traditions leading up to the battle against Blair is Spirit Week. Every spirit day, there is always someone who goes above and beyond. This year saw a multitude of costumes which showcased Peddie students’ creativity and individuality. 

    Peddie started off the week strong, with the community being able to roll out of bed in the morning in their pajamas and attend classes. Everyone won that day, except, of course, the people who did not wear pajamas. 

    For Halloween, the winners by far were The Lorax, Steve Harvey and a Smurf. These costumes shone, and showed students’ commitment to the characters, from using face paint to wearing bald caps and mustaches. Also, there were winners in the group costumes category like the Girl and Nemo from “Finding Nemo” and the Founding Fathers.

    On Decades Day, students’ looks included Pink Ladies, greasers, hippies, disco and bright eighties leotards. However, the true stars of Decades Day were Peddie’s teachers. Mr. Wriede wore a brown wig and an outfit replicating his high school outfit. Ms. Morgan came in a 2000s purple velour tracksuit with stories about her middle school days. At community meeting, Ms. Brown shone as a greaser, while Ms. Loughran represented the Peddie swim team with her jacket from her high school days.

    Next, it was Farmers Day. Students came in flannels and overalls, festive for the day. Some even dressed up as farm animals or held stuffed animals. However, Mr. Gartner was the clear winner of that day. As he taught classes throughout the day, he showed his students tools that he brought from his garage, such as his pickaxe.

    Lastly, the most celebrated day came: Blue and Gold Day. The Peddie community wore accessories from the school store, such as blue wigs or gold face paint, to celebrate the occasion. Tutus were a staple piece of clothing. The clear winner was the mascot, the Falcon, who stormed the campus during the day, taking photos with students in their Peddie attire.
