Save the Date for SpeakUp! March 19, 6:30pm
Come experience SpeakUp! This program is for all Upper School students, parents, and educators and is led by an extraordinary team of FCS student leaders and adult facilitators. Qualitatively, students report that SpeakUp! has been transformative – helping them to be better communicators, more empathetic, have a stronger sense of belonging, gain competence and leadership, have improved coping skills, are more engaged, and feel decreased stress. They attribute these changes to the fact that SpeakUp! is an authentic, student-led event that builds trust and provides a safe, accepting, and non-judgmental environment.
Home and School Association MLK Day of Service
Thank you to all our student and parent volunteers who made this very frigid MLK Day of Service so successful. As a community we made lots of dream catchers, packaged many cleaning kits and snack bags, packed 600 lunches, made 100s of cards, and put up over 200 T-shirts to end gun violence.
This wonderful day could not happen without our wonderful parent volunteers who lead the HSA service committees. Thanks to Chandra Thorne, Julie Shapiro, Catherine Corson, Anjali Thapar, and Paula Yudenfriend Green.
