MLK Day of Service 2020

From the Home and School Association Co-Clerks

Community Fun!

In this new virtual life we are all living, it can be quite a challenge being at home while still feeling connected to your friends and community. To lighten all our spirits, the Home and School Association thought we would start some Community Fun -- with different challenges and activities to participate in together over the next few weeks. We will be sharing these activities with our entire community, from students and parents to faculty and staff to alumni/ae. Can’t wait to see what we create!


Challenge One
Lego Buildings - Together we make a city!
Deadline: Monday, March 23, 2020 - 12 noon

For anyone who would like to participate, we challenge you to make a building from legos. It can be a real building or one from your imagination! Be creative - think about a scene or a story around your building! No legos? No problem! Build your city with wooden blocks, playing cards, cardboard, or even paper!

Post pictures of your building in progress, or the final product, on social media and use the hashtag #VirtualFCS or tag us @friendscentral (Twitter) or @friendscentralschool (Instagram), or send pictures of completed buildings to by Monday, March 23. Then we'll put the creations together - stay tuned to see what we have made! The whole city will be unveiled by next Friday. If you’d like to, please put your name or include all the builders in the picture so we know who made what!

Book Fair Thank you!  We just wrapped up another wonderful week of books!  The Meeting Room was filled with excitement and happiness as every class had an opportunity to shop from a wide-range of interesting, fun,thrilling, books!  A big thank you to Alison Siskin and Elena Zarabara, our LS Book Fair Chairs, who organized, planned and were present every step of the way. Thanks to the rest of our Book Fair Committee who helped in ways too many to count: Ria Lee, Elisha Snedeker and Susanna Zemble.   And thank you to everyone who took a shift cashiering or unloaded boxes of books or planned on being there for Family Night. Finally, thank you to Indre Page, librarian extraordinaire, we appreciate all you do!

Come hear Phyllis Fagel author of "Middle School Matters" - Please join us in reading Middle School Matters: The 10 Key Skills Kids Need to Thrive in Middle School and Beyond by Phyllis Fagell. Ms. Fagell will be here with us for a parent program on the evening of April 29, and we are encouraging parents/guardians to read her book and attend her talk. In each issue of Just the FaCtS leading up to her visit, we will be highlighting quotes/tips from her book. We hope you will read along with us and attend in April.
