Volume 71 | Issue 1
Winter 2021

“As you read this issue of the Chronicle, there will be some things missing. In many cases the boys’ faces will be obscured behind the masks that are protecting them, protecting all of us. And you won’t be able to hear their voices, the joy and excitement of victory and accomplishment, the hard conversations filled with growth and learning, the ordinary moments captured in friendly greetings. I hope, however, as you flip through the pages, you will use your imagination to complete the pictures and join me in the simple pleasure of being a part of a school that is open and thriving, despite a pandemic.”

Summer 2020

“In this issue of the Cardigan Chronicle, we celebrate the Class of 2020. These boys make up a very special class, and not just because they graduated in the year of COVID-19; they deserve to be acknowledged for the ways in which they have led the School this year and the positive energy they’ve helped spread. It’s also why we chose to go forward with our focus on alumni; their successes and celebrations bring positive energy to a world that is struggling. Our alumni, both the most recent graduates and those from many years in the past, are our silver lining.”
