First Day, Settling In

Friends Community School welcomed students back to school today. For some there were jitters; for many, hugs and smiles. This video captures the spirit of the morning.
Students were greeted by FCS’s new Head of School, Angela Garcia, as they arrived at carline. For the past two weeks, Angela and the 47 members of FCS’s faculty and staff have been discussing pedagogy and Quaker practice, reviewing school policies, and preparing FCS’s classrooms, halls, and grounds for the 2019-20 school year.
FCS alum Rebecca Hamilton-Levi ‘10, a videographer, made this video of students settling into their new school year.
