Spring Celebration of
the Arts

Thursday Evening, April 26

The Friends School Haverford Spring Celebration of the Arts showcases the creative expanse of our arts curriculum. Under the direction of our art teacher, Amy Kiely, a sampling of each student's artwork is exhibited throughout the school. Later in the evening, students in grades 1-8 will present a musical program, displaying a variety of styles, which is the culmination of their year-long study in music with Tr. Ed Nardi. There will also be a performance by the Kwaya Marimba Group. The kids worked hard, so please stay for the entire performance.

*Please note, all after-school activities will be CLOSED in preparation for the Spring Celebration. This includes Extended Day, LARKs, and ASAs.

Pretzel Fridays 


This pretzel initiative is an opportunity to fundraise for middle school trips, build community, and engage with math skills in meaningful ways. The Carousel Connections crew and middle school math students will sell pretzels during the class snack times on Fridays. If you would like your child to receive a freshly baked pretzel, please send a $1 in with him/her. Please note that we will not have a pre-paid sale due to our focus on the math and money exchange. Thank you for supporting our pretzel sale!
