Last week several classes headed off campus to extend their learning on field trips.
Our Pre-K class visited Howell Living History Farm in Titusville, NJ during their unit of study about farms. At the farm they saw cows, sheep, and chickens, and learned about how oxen can be used to plow the fields.
Our 4th grade classes visited Pennsylvania's State Capitol and the State Museum in Harrisburg, which ties into their social studies curriculum focusing on Pennsylvania's geography, history and industries.
The 1st grade classes spent a morning at the Churchville Nature Center's Lenape Village, as part of their year-long study about Native American peoples.
On Monday, October 24th, NFS hosted the first day of The Quaker Classic soccer tournament. The tournament featured four Friends schools including NFS, Abington Friends School, Buckingham Friends School, and Friends Select School. Each school played double header soccer games on Monday and then on Tuesday, October 25 the event moved to Abington Friends School for the championship and consolation games. Good luck to our Varsity soccer team, led by Coach Jay Mahoney!
