Friends Academy Celebrates Unity Day with First Community Group Meetings

On Thursday, October 10, the Friends Academy community wore orange to honor Unity Day, part of Bullying Prevention Month. The day was also marked with the first meetings of all-school Community Groups, which bring together students and adults in all divisions to strengthen bonds across campus.

Community Service

It's never too early to learn how to give back.

In conjunction with organizations such as the Interfaith Nutritional Network (INN) and Pioneers for Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) as well as small fundraising events, e.g., walk-a-thons, for the Muttontown Preserve, and Upland Farms Nature Conservancy. More immediately, the children are involved in daily activities and interactions that foster "caring service" to one another in the classroom and at school. We also include opportunities for older students in the school to participate in community service with the younger ones.
