At the end of this school year, 10 longtime Blake teachers, representing 264 years of service at Blake, celebrated their retirement. Read highlights from notes Blake community members shared with them.
Welcome, Blake Alumni!
Imagine receiving an invitation to attend a live performance by a rising opera star, plant seeds on a beautiful spring day to support a local nonprofit, or compete in a Zoom trivia game featuring questions from Mr. Anderson and Mrs. Woolman.
Good news! As a Blake alum, you have a standing invitation to attend these events and more.
The above are all recent examples of activities which the Blake Alumni Board hosted and to which you, as an alum, were invited. Our Breakfast at Blake series features alumni giving live opera performances or violin concerts or discussing their careers in filmmaking, psychology or art collecting. Our 2021 Alumni Service Day supported Appetite for Change, a North Minneapolis-based nonprofit co-founded by a Blake alumna. Our last online trivia game was like being back in high school but (thankfully) was not graded.
If you are a Blake alum anywhere in the world who attended The Blake School, Blake, Northrop or Highcroft, you have automatic access to these and other fun, free, interesting and inspiring activities. Join us to re-connect, learn from and become newly acquainted with fellow alumni.
For local Twin Cities alumni, we continue to host in-person events such as the Great Blake Get-Together, school- and class-hosted reunion activities, the Alumni Holiday Party and Alumni Service Day. For out-of-town alumni or anyone not able to attend events in person, we offer many virtual ways to connect such as Breakfast At Blake (live-streamed with recordings on YouTube) and our Zoom Holiday Party, which past and present Blake teachers are also able to attend.
Whether you have maintained an on-going tie to Blake or are seeking to get reacquainted, we welcome you. To be sure you are on our email list for future activities or with any questions about how to get involved, please contact Director of Alumni and Parent Engagement Jon Friedell ʼ85, Pʼ28 at email@example.com. Also, our alumni Facebook feed and links to Blake's other social media accounts are in the right column.
Please join us!
