To Parents and First Day School Children,

This is the traditional start to the FDS year, so we hope everyone can make it and enjoy
the breakfast prepared by Bob Newbery and his young helpers. If your child would like
to be involved with cooking or serving, let me or Bob know in the next few weeks.
Watch announcements for more details about this syrupy celebration!
First Day School programming is shifting to "summer mode" beginning June 11. Rather than structured classes for each age group, we'll have a range of activities for children to choose from. It will be a little different each week, but expect crafts, games, outdoor activities when weather permits, music, baking, and special events.
August 13-19 - People Camp, a well-established program of Friends for a Nonviolent World, is a week-long experience of cooperation, community living, and exploration of ideas and issues. It will take place at Northern Pines near Park Rapids, Minnesota. Northern Pines is a comfortable and accessible facility on a lake that is suitable for boating and swimming.
