On Tuesday, January 5, Rutgers Preparatory School (founded in 1766) commemorated the first day of school in its 250th Anniversary year with an all school assembly in the Upper Gymnasium.

The assembly featured a processional of students by grade carrying banners created for the event, an historic slideshow, and a group photograph of all students and faculty spelling out “250” on the floor of the upper gymnasium. Each student and teacher received a “new jersey” in maroon or white—the school’s colors—with “1st” on the back, to wear during the event and photograph.

This assembly was the first of many events the school has coordinated in honor of such a milestone anniversary, and celebrations will continue throughout the year, including some that will be open to the larger community.
