A Mighty Start to the School Year
Amid celebrations and cherished traditions, SFS students headed back to class.
Although summer’s heat and humidity held strong, students in all three divisions returned to their classrooms this morning to start another school year.
Candy, music, and decorations provided by the “m19hty” class of ’19 welcomed Upper School students, while Middle Schoolers started their year with the familiar walk up 37th Street. At Lower School, a new face greeted families as they arrived. New Principal Adele Paynter met students with overhead high fives as they made their way into Manor House.
