Funday sunday & open House

Our Sunday FUNDAY & Open House invites parents and children to explore inquiry-based activities with teachersfrom grades Pre-K – 8.

Looking for a FREE and FUN way to participate in engaging activities? From 1:00 – 3:00 on Sunday, April 7, we’re offering short sessions of: Stop-Motion Animation, Creative Art Zone, Create-A-Catapult, Vernal Pool Exploration, Drumming,Get Up & Move Fitness, and more!

We’re even hosting a “Book Tasting.” You heard correctly! Our fantastic librarian will be setting up tables where you can sample and “taste” different types of books! From “appetizers” to “main courses,” we’re sure that you’ll find something to dig in to!

Of course families can always tour the school, and we’ll have faculty and guides available if you’d like more information about this amazing place.

We understand that families are often looking for fun and alternative ways to engage their children– this day is a great, low pressure way to learn more about our independent school. We hope you’ll join us!

Autumn open house Coinciding event: Family Trail Walks and StoryWalk® at Friends Academy

In conjunction with our fall Open House, we’re inviting the community, in addition to our current families, to enjoy a beautiful fall stroll on our grounds. Have you ever seen our on-campus ropes course, or taken a stroll past our vernal pool?  Newly maintained and marked, our 65-acre campus is the perfect place for an autumn walk in the woods! Join us for trail walks the whole family will love! For our younger friends, try our StoryWalk®, where families will discover the magical pages of a story along the trail. Older students can try their hands at a scavenger hunt, or bird watching, and for the more adventurous, self-guided trail walks will allow you to discover the wild beauty of our woods and fields!

Trails will be open from 1:00 – 3:00pm.

Our walks are just as beautiful in the rain, and our story pages will be laminated. We hope you’ll join us rain or shine!

Feel free to bring a friend!  Our trailwalks are FREE and open to the public.
