Now more than ever before, communication and information flow between school and family is critical to our scholars' success. Check frequently to keep informed during these rapidly changing times.

Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week

Each day, the FDSPG (Friendship Day School Parent Group) treated the entire staff of FDS royally: teachers, instructional assistants, creative arts teachers, administrators, and office staff alike. Throughout the week, daily we received something special to show how much they appreciate us and what we do for their scholars. For more information on this week, please see the teachers and staff appreciation week 2021 flyer in its entirety. We're spoiled now! However, can we get back to normal next week? The photo shows day three where each staff member received a bouquet of their favorite flowers. On today, Friday, the heads of school Mrs. Comer and Ms. Harrison, treated the FDS teachers and instructional assistants to a catered home-style breakfast and gifts. On Saturday, May 8, 2021, since the teachers had a workday on Friday, there will be a drive-by parade celebrating all staff, individually and collectively!

100th Day of School Celebration
View more photos from our 100th Day of School Celebration

On Friday, February 19, we celebrated the 100th Day of School! Each class engaged in related projects, activities, and festivities throughout the entire day. It was amazing to see some students dressed as their 100-year-old selves, wearing the shirts they made with 100 things on them, and donning the hats they decorated with groups of 10 things that total 100 altogether. Teachers and parents alike took photos and shared them with us. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Did you know that children who learn to play stringed instruments intuitively understand mathematical and physics concepts more easily than their peers? That’s just one of many reasons every scholar at FDS participates in our violin program. Contact us to learn more!
