Grade 3/4 Inventions

Grades 3/4 have been studying inventions and the engineering process in science class. Working with five items (a cup, plate, piece of string, paper towel and two paper clips) they had to brainstorm, draw up a plan, and then invent something from those items. They were then given a plastic spoon to take home and asked to add something to the spoon to make another invention. They presented their creative ideas to their classmates. Some of the inventions included a clock, a unicorn, a tiny piano, a rescue plane, a soup spoon with a splatter guard, and a balancing bird.

Alumni Weekend

Graduates from the classes of 1968 through 2018 joined us for a day of reconnecting and reminiscing during Alumni Weekend. The day started off with a light breakfast and lots of smiles as Friends started to recognize their former classmates. Tours of the school ended in the music room where guests were treated to a marimba performance by graduates from 2014-2018 who hadn't played together in years and didn't miss a beat. Heartfelt speeches were given by Sally Bleznak, Patty Bleznak Silverstein and Linda Escoll to commemorate the 45th anniversary of Nancy's House, our beloved play structure created and named in honor of Nancy Bleznak. Photos from the school's founding to the present were on display in the community room for everyone to enjoy. A buffet lunch and Meeting for Worship wrapped up the festive day.

Brandywine Living Visitors

A few of our senior friends from Brandywine Living paid a visit to grades 1/2 and 3/4. After everyone introduced themselves, our senior friends shared stories of what they did before coming to Brandywine. Mrs. Johnnie was a librarian; Vera traveled extensively; Jane was a third-grade teacher; Barbara was a volunteer; Tom was in the navy; Susan has two grandchildren who graduated FSH; and finally Rozy, now 94, graduated FSH in 1937! She visited her old classroom to recall many fond memories. Our valuable connection to our friends from Brandywine Living proves to be an education for both young and old. We all can learn together and from each other.

Camp Speers

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 didn't deter us from enjoying canoe races, archery lessons, and the low ropes course. In the evening, students and the Speers' staff performed skits, sang songs, made s'mores, and did the Cupid Shuffle. We had a great time reconnecting with old friends and welcoming new ones to the FSH Middle School!

Learning About Cicadas

Nursery school visited Tr. Lisa to learn about a cicada that she found in her window. Each student got to hold the cicada, examine its wings, size, and color. The students learned how to be gentle with holding the cicada and not to fear it after examining it. Afterward, they went upstairs to observe the beehive and see the bees busy at work. They sang a song about bees and enjoyed their informative trip.
