FAmily Night

FA Families are diverse. Every family has a story.
Every family has a history. Let's celebrate!

FAmily Night

Thursday, Jan. 23, 2020
6 to 7:30 pm
Friends Academy Dolan Center
A Peace Week Celebration

Join us for this annual special Peace Week event, as we celebrate the incredible and rich diversity that all families continue to bring to our community. 

From student performances in dance and music to outside cultural offerings, multi-lingual presentations, interactive family activities, and an international potluck, FAmily Night recognizes that the stories of all our families contribute to our larger Friends Academy biography.

Drawing inspiration from our Strategic Plan with its goal of "many voices, one school," and now firmly rooted during Peace Week, FAmily Night will be a marker of the importance of celebrating diversity + inclusion in the same spaces where we discuss peace and equality. We look forward to hearing your family's story.


We'd love to continue our tradition of an international potluck buffet with our families. Would you be interested in blessing our FA table with one of your favorite family recipes? If you would like to offer a dish to the evening's dinner menu, please include (1) the culturak name of the dish (including country of origin, if applicable), (2) description of the dish, (3) any key ingredient notes (e.g. gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, dairy-free). We will ask every family to fill out a blank note card with the details of their recipe upon your arrival to be paired with your dish before it is put on the buffet table. Please note: All dishes must be nut-free.

Please RSVP if you plan to attend. Appropriate for all ages.
