School’s out for the Summer!
At the risk of sounding cliché, let me say time flies. During this past school year, Friends Seminary has displayed its resilience by opening school in-person, determined to provide a safe environment for students to learn and teachers and staff to work. We have experienced the gradual relaxation of protocols, allowing the School to shift to a mask-optional model. For those new to Friends like me, seeing members of the community without a mask on for the first time was almost like an initial meeting. The return of in-person events on campus also brought the School closer to what was familiar at Friends pre-pandemic. Events like God’s Love We Deliver, Lunar New Year, and Day of Service all took place successfully. Despite the emergence of COVID-19 variants, Friends moved forward together with confidence.
Grade 4 students have moved up to Middle School, Grade 8 students are prepared for Upper School, and the graduated seniors are experiencing a pivotal moment in their lives as they embark on their college journeys with the foundational Quaker values and education that Friends has bestowed upon them—to bring about a world that ought to be. Farewell for now, until September.
