Noah Reinhardt Appointed Head of Blue School
Noah Reinhardt, our Middle School Division Head and Assistant Head of School, has been appointed the new Head of School at Blue School, a PreK-8th Grade school in Lower Manhattan. He will start the position on July 1, 2021.

Noah has been part of our community for 21 years — first as a math teacher and then as Director of Middle and Upper School Admissions. For the past 11 years, he has served as the Head of the Middle School. His commitment to Packer has helped make the school what it is today. He was instrumental in the development of our Equity Simulation, Community & Action program, Field Day, the Eighth Grade Octathlon, and many other traditions. His work has impacted generations of Packer alumni. 
In 2009, Packer Seniors dedicated the yearbook to Noah. Their words of appreciation seem appropriate now:

All it takes is your greeting in the hall — the calming nod and smile — and a student’s day could instantly seem brighter. You have traveled through Packer first as a teacher, then an admissions director, and now hold the position of Head of the Middle School. Through it all, no matter what hat you wore, you have always been dedicated, supportive, and thoughtful. You are the reason that our grade is what it is today. You taught us math, tutored us when we had trouble, and welcomed us to this school. To some of us you are Mr. Reinhardt, the amazing math teacher. To others of us you are Noah, the kind and fun admissions director. Either way, we all know you as a great man who we are all fortunate to have in our lives. For these reasons, we dedicate this yearbook to you, Mr. Reinhardt.
