FROM THE HEALTH OFFICE: Medication Pick up

If you child has any medication in the Health Office it will need to be picked up by the end of the school year. Any medication left in the office will have to be discarded (the Board of Health prohibits storing over the summer). If you would like the medication to be sent home in your student’s backpack please let us know. Thank you!


Tickets in support of Spring Swing were sent home via backpacks. If you need more please get some in the Main Office. Spring Swing is our annual golf tournament to support tuition assistance at Friends Academy. You can support Spring Swing by participating in this year’s raffle. Winners will be chosen at the reception following the tournament on the 21st. You need not be present to win. Raffle tickets must be returned to the Main Office prior to noon on Tuesday, May 21. A HUGE thank you to all who donated to this raffle! $5 per ticket or 5 tickets for $20!

Library Books Due soon

Next week will be the last week that students will be able to check out library materials. Library classes will still be held, and students are welcome to look at books while they are at school. If you are curious as to what materials might still be checked out under your student's name, please contact our librarian Jeanne McCullough.

Please return all athletic gear and apparel by May 29. Unfortunately any items not returned by the end of the year will be billed.  Please contact Athletic Director, Michael Williams should you have any questions.

On Thursday, May 23rd at 6:00 p.m., we will be presenting our annual Spring Concert, featuring performances by students in early childhood through grade five, plus our Band of Friends. The concert should last about an hour and a quarter.  

Students should arrive at school by 5:45 pm and go directly to their classrooms.  Early Childhood students should go to the Lower School Art Room (Mrs. Cogliano’s room). This is a "dress event" for students.  Dress pants and shirts with collars (no coat and tie required), dresses, skirts, and blouses, or comparable dress attire are required for this special performance.  Students who may be sitting on the stage to play instruments should wear slacks or leggings.

We have been enjoying the preparation for this event and look forward to seeing you all there.
