Welcome new and returning families!
Welcome new and returning families. Thank you for taking time to visit the school this afternoon to become familiar with your child's classroom and to greet and meet other families.
As you saw today, our teachers and staff have been working very hard to create classrooms and spaces that are welcoming, organized, and conducive to deep, rich learning. Friends School is a place where students grow into successful learners -- individuals who are confident, creative, and compassionate. We look forward to a year of vigorous work, as well as vigorous play; we invite and encourage you to take advantage of all that State College Friends School and a Quaker education have to offer.
As we prepare to start school, please remind your children that deep sleep is vitally important for active play and learning, and we encourage them to establish a good night time routine over the next few weeks as we ease into a new schedule and routine. Also, please have your children help pack a hearty snack and lunch, as we find the first few days they are especially hungry.
After the first few weeks, our teachers will be especially hungry too so please consider signing up to participate in First Friday Lunches for teachers. You'll learn more about this and many other things on Back-to School Night for parents.
For now, just enjoy the excitement of coming to school, breathe fully, and look forward to our 1st Day Morning Coffee Gathering where you can weep, laugh, enjoy a hug and exhale with a big sigh.
Thank you for attending the K-5 Come and Play to become familiar with classrooms and teachers. And thank you to Schoolhouse families for attending the Pre-K gathering last week. Looking forward to seeing you on the 1st day of school!
Parent Coffee First Day of School
Parents, please join us for morning refreshments at K-8 morning drop off on the first day of school. This is a good way to meet new and returning families, chat with administration staff, and calm your own first day jitters. 8:15 - 9:30 in the library.
Good luck to last years 8th grade graduates and to all SCFS alums.
Seems like yesterday our 8th grade graduates were celebrating their transition to high school. Let's hold them in the light as they navigate new schools and new social opportunities.
