Princeton Day School Announces Renee Charity Price as New Head of Middle School

Head of School Paul Stellato announced today that Renee Charity Price will be the new Head of the Middle School. Her appointment is effective on July 1, 2015. Ms. Price is a graduate of Virginia’s preeminent independent school, St. Catherine’s School in Richmond, and of the University of Virginia, from which she was awarded a B.A. in English, African, and African American Studies. She then earned a Master’s of Science degree in Elementary Education from the University of Pennsylvania. This May, Ms. Price will complete degree requirements for a Master’s of Arts in Educational Leadership from the Klingenstein Center, Teachers College, Columbia University. She began her teaching career in two Virginia public schools: William Fox Model Elementary School in Richmond; and Pole Green Elementary School in Mechanicsville. From 2004-2006, she taught drama and humanities at Maret School in Washington. Returning to her alma mater soon thereafter, Ms. Price has enjoyed a rich, successful career: Middle School history teacher and social studies coordinator; K-12 history department chair, and adjunct in the offices of admissions, advancement, and diversity and inclusion. St. Catherine’s has recognized and honored her efforts with three of its highest faculty awards: the Abby Castle Kemper Master Teaching Chair in History, the Carole M. Weinstein Fund for Distinguished Teaching, and the Thomas Prize for Outstanding New Faculty. An accomplished scholar, author, and speaker, Ms. Price has sampled broadly from a range of professional interests: as educational consultant to the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies at Georgetown; and with the trustees of the Church Schools in the Diocese of Virginia, the Girl Scouts of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and the St. Catherine’s Board of Trustees and Parents’ Association Board. Currently on sabbatical from St. Catherine’s, Ms. Price is researching and writing the first volume of a two-volume history of the Church Schools of the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia. In his announcement, Mr. Stellato noted, “Even as this search has brought to us an outstanding new leader, so has it elevated and distinguished two others among us: Alesia Klein, who now guides our Middle School with passion and purpose; and Lisa Surace, who deftly chaired the search committee…. During this Thanksgiving week, we have every reason to be both thankful and proud.”

Paging PDS: 3D Printing Could Be the Wave of the Future

A recent Paging PDS column by Zoe Fried ’16 examines 3D printing at Princeton Day School and beyond.  Ms. Fried discusses Duann Scott’s recent visit to the school to discuss his role at Shapeways, the 3D printing company, as part of the school’s Pioneer in Science lecture, and astutely observes, “3D printing has opened up new opportunities not only for the physical items we can produce, but also for the way we think.” She also discusses Princeton Day School’s recent acquisition of a Maker Bot 3D printer and its possibilities. “3D printing prompts us to consider the power of creation we now have. 3D printing is the wave of the future, and here at PDS, we are excited to explore what it can deliver.” To read the full article, click here

The Anne Reid ’72 Art Gallery Presents Jerry Hirniak: Still/Moving, 11/24-12/18

The Anne Reid ’72 Art Gallery at Princeton Day School is pleased to present the work of Upper School art teacher Jerry Hirniak. “Still/Moving” is on view from November 24 through December 18, 2014. There will be an opening reception with Mr. Hirniak on Friday, December 5, from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m., which is free and open to the public. “Still/Moving” displays Mr. Hirniak’s current body of photographic work, which investigates the way photographic processes and technologies connect to perception, memory and culture.  His work is comprised of time exposures, multi-exposures, Xerox reproduction, direct manipulation of the film stock, and issues of scale and of context, such as installations using photographic images. Mr. Hirniak remarks, “My recent work reflects on the implications of the massive numbers of photographs that can be captured and displayed in a digital environment. The ‘contact sheet’ project is a playful way to draw attention to the process of photography in the digital age.” He explains that, traditionally, contact sheets were used to find the perfect image among inferior images; this selecting activity carries implications of exclusion and marginalizing, as discussed in cultural studies work on the camera’s gaze. “For this ‘contact sheet’ project, I visited historically significant subjects and events, not looking for the iconic image but shooting in burst mode to the full capacity of the card size to record thousands of repetitive images of the ordinary as well as the momentous, providing alternative cognitive maps of experience,” notes Mr. Hirniak.
