Alumni Day

Graduates from the class of 1942 through 2019 joined us for a day of reconnecting and reminiscing at Alumni Day this past Saturday. The day started off with a light breakfast and tours of the school as Friends started to recognize their former classmates and classrooms. A science panel discussion with Dr. Linda Powell '71 and Dr. Wayne Giles '73 compared science in schools then and now. Friends gathered for Meeting for Worship followed by a luncheon honoring Sharon Livingston's retirement after 35 years of service. Alejandro Lopez '16 spoke and shared the impact Tr. Sharon had on his life. One theme that ran through all of the conversations over the course of the day was the solid foundation rooted in Quaker values our graduates received at FSH.

Camp Speers Trip

Last Thursday and Friday, the Middle School students had another marvelous trip to Camp Speers for two days of spirit-rousing and community-building! The rain held off and students were able to enjoy canoeing, archery lessons, the climbing tower, and the high ropes course. In the evening, students and the Speers' staff played games meant for the dark and finished with a campfire with s'mores. We had a great time reconnecting with old friends and welcoming new ones to the FSH Middle School!
