The Cambridge Friends School Faculty and Staff of Color again are participating in the National Association of Independent Schools 29th People of Color Conference in Atlanta, Georgia, December 8-10, 2016. Although selected last spring, the theme for this year’s conference Advancing Human and Civil Rights ~ Fulfilling the Dream Together is especially timely and speaks to the social justice mission of Cambridge Friends School and the Quaker Testimonies of Equality, Integrity, Community, Peace, Simplicity, and Stewardship.
Cambridge Friends School congratulates seventh-grader Morris William Henry “Will” Smith for earning international Grand Honors, the highest award for seventh- and eighth-graders, from the Johns Hopkins University (JHU) Center for Talented Youth (CTY.) According to Will’s father William Smith, he is “just another product of a CFS education … one among many who exemplify what is wonderful about CFS, demonstrating how our school cultivates a deep love of learning among our students.”
For the second year in a row, Cambridge Friends School has been awarded a grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council’s STARS Program (Students and Teachers Working with Artists, Scientists, and Scholars) to bring master puppeteer and CFS parent Faye Dupras to our school as artist-in-residence. The STARS grants provide schools with the funds to support creative learning residencies in the arts, sciences, and humanities.
