Newtown Friends School has a beautiful, regulation-size gymnasium that is in daily use for gatherings, assemblies, events, physical education classes, after school activities, sports team practices and games, and rentals to local organizations. It is a place where students, faculty and staff, and the entire school community join together for school traditions, celebrations, meetings, activities and so much more.
Through a generous grant from the SNAVE Foundation and a generous matching gift from Tom and Angella Bock P’21, ’19, the installation of a new HVAC system was completed over the summer of 2021. The addition of air conditioning has been a significant improvement to this essential area of school life. Newtown Friends School now offers year-round use for a variety of programs that improve our students’ experience and that expand opportunities for summer camps, rentals and community events.
We gratefully acknowledge the SNAVE Foundation and our generous supporter for their support of this important facility enhancement.
