Other Celebrations

Video: Dear Class of 2020

Normally, our administration, faculty and staff would host an end of year Senior Family Dinner. At this event, each senior is presented by a member of the Upper School faculty and is briefly spoken about using the collective words of the faculty and staff. This year, we have transformed this to an online celebration video called "Dear Class of 2020" that has been produced and edited by graduating senior Moses Millman '20.

Operation: Tiger Surprise

Operation: Tiger Surprise was successfully completed on Wednesday, May 27, as a team of 20 Bay Ridge Prep faculty and staff members surprised seniors with curbside visits to personally deliver caps and gowns, treats and some in-person congratulations. During the visits, which were made to seniors still in New York City and whose parents gave the school permission to stop by, the team of teachers held signs, cheered, made noise and put a lot of smiles and tears on faces of students and parents. On some blocks, neighbors and others passing by saw what was happening and joined in with horn honking, pot banging, and more cheering. Read more about it here and watch the video below.
