Students and teachers at Adelphi Academy of Brooklyn didn’t just roll out of bed and head to class on a recent Friday, but it sure seemed that way! The entire school dressed in pajamas to show their school spirit for Adelphi Academy’s annual Pajama Day.

Students of every grade level, from little ones in the academy’s nursery school to high school seniors, were encouraged to come to the school, located at 8515 Ridge Blvd. in Bay Ridge, dressed in their most comfortable and colorful sleepwear.

Youngsters attended classes that day wearing superhero-themed pajama sets, robes and slippers.

Some of the kids also carried their favorite teddy bears to class.

Pajama Day is the latest in a series of special themed dress-up days that Adelphi Academy of Brooklyn that the school’s administration refers to as Spirit Days. The other Spirit Days are Crazy Hat Day, Disney Day, Brown and Gold Day (to honor to the academy’s colors) and Mismatch Day.  

“Pajama Day was a tremendous success!”  Head of School Iphigenia Romanos said.

While the day is meant to be fun, it also serves an important purpose, according to Romanos. “At Adelphi, we teach our students to learn and to think, but we also want them to have fun doing it and to associate their school with good feelings and wonderful memories at all times,” she said.
