CFS hosted its fifth annual Day of Service on Saturday, March 3. This year’s projects included making blankets for Project Linus, making toys for local animal shelters, making study guides for English language learners, preparing lunch for several local shelters, and preparing lunch for the CFS community. Families, students, and faculty came together to work for the larger Cambridge and Boston community. By the end of the day, all materials were put to use and there were smiling faces all around. Photos are available here.
In keeping with CFS’s mission to promote diversity and inclusion across the School, seven students and two chaperones attended the AISNE Middle School Students of Color Conference on Saturday, February 10. The conference holds student-centered events to support students of color and affirm the work of diversity education. In the opening ceremony, about 300 middle schoolers packed into the Bardwell Auditorium at the Dana Hall School in Wellesley, MA. This year’s conference theme was “Communicate to Educate: Tell Your Story.” Click through for more information!
