item donations for haiti

Friends Academy has strong connections to Haiti. From donating clothing and personal-care items, to providing computers and other forms of support, the FA community has opened its heart to this country. There are still many supplies that families-in-need could use, such as: toothpaste, toothbrushes, bar soap, children’s multivitamins, and small toys.

In addition to the collaborative efforts of fifth grade students, families, faculty, and staff, Mrs. Reimer (our school nurse) will be participating in a medical mission to Haiti with the group Partners In Development. During the March break, she will have the means to transport the items collected with this group. Click here to learn more about Partners in Development.

Donations may be left in the decorated boxes in each of the fifth grade classrooms, as well as one outside the library. Thank you in advance for any support you can contribute!

The Friends Academy Song Circles

In the paradigm of how music has been taught and shared for centuries, we want to continue and foster this tradition in our community. Join us the first Friday of every month, from 5-6:00 pm in the Commons. This is an offering for our parent/adult community. Bring your acoustic instruments.  Play.  Sing.  Share.  Follow along.  Or we’ll follow you. Hosted by our very own Putnam Murdock.
