Eaglebrook's 98th Winter Carnival
Eaglebrook School’s 98th Winter Carnival weekend was held January 31st through February 1. Parents attended classes with their children on Friday, see photos from the day here. In the early afternoon, the Music Department held its annual Winter Carnival Concert which featured the string orchestra, the band, the jazz band, the chorus, the Ad Libs, and six piano soloists. Photos and video from the concert can be found here.
In the evening, parents and kids took in the Drama Department performance of "All I Really Need to Know I Learned by Being in a Bad Play" by Werner Trieschmann. The play walks one through the process of putting on a show. The captivating and humorous Winter Carnival play was a real-life account of a production from the beginning, middle, and finale.
On Saturday, the Parents’ Committee sponsored a symposia. Parents from each Form were given an interactive presentation titled "Advising 101: The Role of the Advisor at Eaglebrook." During the symposia, the value and importance of Eaglebrook's advisor program was discussed. Later in the morning, it was time for the second oldest Winter Carnival in the country to begin. Although Mother Nature has not provided our campus with much snow in recent weeks, the traditional Winter Carnival activities still went on without a hitch due to our hardworking maintenance staff. It was a cloudy but relatively warm morning. Many spectators gathered near the bonfire at the bottom of the Easton Ski Area. The first event was the cardboard sled race featuring Head of School Andrew Chase’s sled, Eddie the Eagle, up against the winner of the cardboard sled design contest. The Eddie the Eagle sled came close to reclaiming victory after last year’s defeat but the cardboard sled built by Gunn Pongvispai ’21, Alex Smyth '20, and Ohm Poonsornsiri '20 was victorious.
