Events

Events at Pine Point strengthen ties with the Pine Point family – our alumni, current and past parents, grandparents, friends, faculty and staff – while also engaging members of the community beyond Barnes Road. Most events occur annually and take place at the School; a few are held off-campus at local venues with which Pine Point has developed strong partnerships.

Green & Gold Expedition 2018 – February 10, 2018

Pine Point’s Green & Gold Expedition will assemble at Lake of Isles for a festive evening with a purpose: to financially support the School and celebrate the faculty, staff, parents, and friends who make the Pine Point community special.

Please join us at the Green & Gold Expedition benefit party, to be held on Saturday, February 10, 2018.

Grandparents’/Grandpersons’ Day

Join Us on April 28, 2018

One of our very favorite days of the year! For almost 40 years Pine Point has hosted this gathering of the Pine Point extended family on the last Friday in April. In recent years more than 250 grandparents and special friends have come to campus to experience a day in the life of Pine Point.

We’re already looking forward to next year’s gathering on April 27, 2018. Save the date!


Commencement

June 9, 2018

At Commencement Pine Point celebrates the achievements of those in the middle school who distinguished themselves academically and through their character and commitment to the community.

Erin Larson ’04 will be the Commencement Speaker on June 9, 2018. As a Ph.D candidate in ecology and evolutionary biology at Cornell University, Erin combines her love for studying streams with studying Spanish and exploring new countries.

“I am still working on figuring out where I want to find my niche - as an educator or working in the nonprofit or consulting world," Erin said. "Pine Point’s emphasis on interdisciplinary study trained me from an early age to get excited about the opportunities these crossroads represent.”

Annual Fall Reception – September 22, 2017

Since the 1990s, the Pine Point family - alumni, current and past parents, grandparents, faculty and staff - has gathered each fall to renew our ties to each other and the School, honor volunteer service, and thank the many people who support Pine Point’s mission and programs.

On September 22, 2017, we will be “Gathering Under the Stars” on the fields at Pine Point. With fabulous food from local farms, cozy seats by the fire, live background music, tasty beverages... all we need to make the party complete is more Pine Point people!

We will also celebrate and recognize Jenny and Adam Wronowski ’87 with the Steven M. Castle Award, our highest honor, for the many ways (and years!) that they have volunteered - together and individually - in support of Pine Point School. We hope you’ll join us for what will be a truly special evening - please contact development@pinepoint.org for more details.
