Trivia Night

Parents and friends came out for our first ever Trivia Night on Saturday. In the spirit of the 80s movie theme of the night, participants dressed up in their favorite 80s movie attire and decorated their tables accordingly. Teams of eight competed in 10 rounds of 10 questions on a variety of topics. Some of the movies represented were Back to the Future, Fast Times at FSH, Flashdance, ET, Star Wars, Purple Rain, and The Princess Bride. It was an exciting, challenging, and fun night of friendly competition. The grand prize of a meal cooked by Tr. Lisa and Tr. Matt went to Tr. Dee's team.

Our all school theme this year is Small Acts, Big Impact. Students worked in partner groups to plant 200 daffodil bulbs around campus. They dug holes, planted the bulbs, and then packed the dirt. Some students found worms and one student was lucky enough to find a four leaf clover! Working together today will make a big impact of color this spring.

All Aboard

Nursery school has several train enthusiasts in the class. They wanted to see what it is like to go to a train station, wait on the platform, and then get on board and meet a conductor. They walked over to the Haverford train station in the rain and excitedly boarded the train to head to Common Space in Ardmore to read books about trains and play with trains. Common Space shares FSH values of diversity with an open mind, kind heart, and thoughtful conversation. The rain made their adventure even better as they had to practice resiliency, grit, and determination as it was hard to be wet and not immediately arrive as you would in a car, but they did it!
