Lower School

Lower School Book Fair Success
Thank you to everyone who purchased books during our first ever Virtual Book Fair.  CBW is now processing orders for shipping next week. 

 Mini Halloween Pumpkins
For Halloween your child brought home a mini pumpkin and some face stickers from the HSA. The pumpkins are to be decorated at home any way they like and pictures to be sent to LSSpirit@friendscentral.org. We would love to see what they come up with!

Middle School

Winter Sports
As we transition from the fall to winter season, athletics for Middle School will be a little different. We will not have our traditional indoor sports for now as they are deemed moderate to high activity with close contact. It is the hope that as conditions improve, we will go back to an athletic block with seasonal sports in 2021. In the meantime, we will extend our current season (cross country will become track & field, field hockey, soccer, and tennis) for students to be active.

We will officially begin our winter season on Nov. 2. All activities will be outdoors, so students will need to dress accordingly. If the weather keeps us indoors, we will offer each grade a yoga session or a low impact activity during athletics. The hope is for us to be outdoors for as long as possible and as often as possible. All safety protocols (masking, physical distancing, no shared equipment, and non-contact drills) will continue. Students will use hand sanitizer after each activity. If you have any questions regarding athletics, please contact Michelle Crowley.

FCS will be hosting the annual, area independent school Financial Aid Information Evening on Nov. 17 at 7 pm. You are invited to attend the Zoom webinar with guest speaker Chris Gruber, Vice President and Dean of Admission & Financial Aid at Davidson College. This session provides an excellent overview of the higher education financial aid system and will be of interest to parents whose children are still some years away from attending college, as well as to those who are parents of seniors already in the process of filling out college financial aid forms.
