Virtual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Activities 2021

The Diversity Committee, along with the Upper School faculty and students, planned a day of events for the entire family to commemorate Martin Luther King, Jr. on Monday, January 18th. 
Morning Read Alouds for Lower School
In our long tradition of forging connections between our older and younger pupils, students in grades 6-8 volunteered to read books to Lower School students (PreK-5).  The read aloud was followed by a discussion led by the Upper School students.  
Student-Led Diversity Camp for Parents, Faculty, Staff, and Upper School Students
Eighth grade students facilitated discussions about topics dealing with diversity (Race and Racial Inequality, Gender and Sexuality, and Ethnicity and Religion).  Parents, faculty, staff and Upper School students were invited to attend.  
Food Drive for Mercer Street Friends
In keeping with the spirit of MLK Day as a National Day of Service, we supported Mercer Street Friends Food Bank with a food drive the week of January 18-22.  The school donated 1841 pounds of food.
Located In Newtown, Pennsylvania, Newtown Friends School is a Private School For Grades Pre-K-8th Grade.
