More than 150 FCS parents, alumni families and friends of the school gathered in Nov 2017 to celebrate the launch of the Light the Way
Campaign for FCS.
Students shared their reflections about FCS, the Clerks of the Campaign, parents Earl Adams, Jr, Tamara Devieux-Adams, and Albert Morales, described the aspects of FCS that inspired their passionate support of the school, and Larry Clements announced that the school had already raised $710,000 in Endowment commitments. Teachers Alexandra Whyte (K) and Jennie Claiborne (8th) spoke about their journeys as teachers. The Spirit of FCS video
(written and produced by Alumna Aziza Afzal, with videography and editing by alumni parents Bruce Dixon and Ray Lane) premiered. Parent and chef Jay Keller provided gourmet hors d'oeuvres served by 7th and 8th graders. John Scroggins and Derian Douglas took beautiful photos of the evening
Thank you to the Board Advancement Committee, the entire Board of Trustees, teachers, parents, students, Adelphi Friends Meeting, and friends of the school who made it a special evening for everyone.
