In January we were glad to welcome members of the Class of 2020 and parents back to campus to see the Skyspace—the new art exhibit by James Turrell. The Skyspace was made possible in part by the generosity of the Class of 2020 Senior Gift. Thank you to the families who made time to visit, and who have come back to campus over this past year—it is incredibly exciting to learn how our recent graduates have grown and thrived in their time away.

The Skyspace will open to the full community later this year. Please reach out if you are interested in learning more. And thank you again to the amazing Class of 2020 and their Senior Gift, which continues to make an impact on the School.

The Larry Carter Legacy Fund

The Alumni Council’s Diversity, Equity & Belonging Committee (DEB) is pleased to announce the launch of the Larry Carter Legacy Fund. This endowed financial aid fund has been established for students of African and Latin descent in recognition of Larry’s dedication to Friends and students of color. Larry Carter, a beloved teacher, who for many students of color was the first teacher they had who looked like them, will be retiring at the end of the school year after 45 years of service. The DEB Committee has set an ambitious goal of an initial $100,000 to bring this fund to light.

This is an opportunity for you to honor Larry as well as make an impact on the diversity of the Friends community. Please consider offering your support here, and please learn more through the video below.
