Strong Minds. Kind Hearts.

Peace Week 2020

As an entire Friends Academy community, we will come together for a week that is dedicated to strengthening our commitment to the non-violent resolution of conflict and to working for a more just and equitable world from January 21-24. Peace Week is not planned or intended to be the only container for this work. Our hope and prayer is that each member of our community find some inspiration to take what is our essential understandings – there is goodness or God in every person and therefore we are connected and responsible to each other.

This year's Peace Week will be centered around our 2019-20 school year theme of Integrity.
