Last Tuesday and Wednesday, CFS hosted its annual Community Dinners to build comraderie within the School. Tuesday's event was focused on families of students in grades 5-8 and Wednesday's event hosted families for grades PK-4. Catered by Urban Hearth catering (https://www.urbanhearth.net) and photographed by the very talented Michael Brook (media gallery here), families and CFS faculty and staff enjoyed warm conversation, wonderful food, and an energized back-to-school mindset. Thank you to all who attended and to all who contributed to make this event a great success.
The CFS community gathered on Wednesday, September 7 in singing and celebration of the new school year. Students and staff were joined by an excited group of parents to lift up their voices in song. The assembly, lead by music teacher Marytha Paffrath, included teaching new community members CFS song favorites and the telling of a beautiful story by Naomi Shihab Nye "that captures the spirit of kindness, of hospitality, of welcoming the stranger that we want to embody at CFS."
