Online School Store Open Now Through Nov. 22

The Friends Academy online school store is now available through Friday, Nov. 22. Items include t-shirts, sweatshirts, NEW fleece pullovers, NEW fleece vests, and pajama pants. If you would like to see a sample of items before you order, visit Ms. Pink’s office.

Book Fair: Nov. 18-22

The Book Fair will take place from Nov. 18-22 in the library. Students will have the opportunity to browse books during their library class the week of the fair — they can bring money to purchase books or bring home a “wish list” of books they would like to purchase. The Book Fair will also be open to families from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day.

Teachers from each class have created wish lists that will be available at the Book Fair. Families will be able to purchase items from teachers’ wish lists to give as gifts from your family for your child’s classroom library.

There will be approximately 175 titles for sale. Books were purchased from Partners Village Store & Kitchen in Westport, so your purchases benefit an independently owned local business as well as the FA Library.

Lunch Forms for Winter/Spring Now Available

If you would like to order lunch for your child for winter/spring 2020, please complete the following forms and submit a check payment to the main office by mid-December.

FA Fund is Underway!

The Friends Academy Fund, our annual giving campaign, kicked off this month. Please make a donation today!

An anonymous donor has put forth a Current Parent Participation Challenge: If 75% of a grade level’s families give by Dec. 31, the FA Fund will receive an additional gift of $1,000. The same is true for faculty/staff participation. That means Friends Academy could gain an additional $11,000 if the school works together to achieve this goal. The faculty/staff have already surpassed the 75% goal. Will you help your child’s grade level reach their goal?
