      "It won't last forever"

      Oct, 2, 2020


      Will you join us in supporting PFS’s Outdoor Education Initiative?


      A student designed and constructed greenhouse will allow gardening classes to extend into the winter months and provide healthy food for the local food bank year-round.


      A fleet of bicycles and a storage unit will enable students to efficiently engage in off-campus research and place-based learning.


      An outdoor hub for daily Science instruction will provide student access to tools, gear, and technology to conduct research and experiments.


      Tensile coverings, landscaping, and additional seating will enhance an outdoor classroom space and provide an environment for rich instruction.


      Today -> Blairstown, 5/26/21-> Last Day of School, 6/11/21

      The mission of the Friends.Cycle initiative is four-fold:

      1. STEWARDSHIP: to raise our children's' consciousness about PFS' core value of stewardship (and the circular economy, i.e., the fact that everything they wear, play with, eat and touch originated in nature, and before simply being thrown away, all of us should think about whether things can be re-used or recycled.)

      2. SELF-AGENCY: to provide our children with a means to be action-oriented and capable of positively contributing in support of stewardship

      3. COMMUNITY: to reinforce our children' sense of community (i.e., all of us are connected to one another at PFS, in our families, local communities, countries and the wider world). By selecting items to contribute to Friends.Cycle, our children are contributing them to someone else who may enjoy wearing, using, or having that item.

      4. PHILANTHROPY: to spark an interest in philanthropy and giving back; encouraging our children to feel a part of directly helping to build and contribute to their PFS experience. The money they raise will go toward the activities they enjoy at school, such as the Outdoor Education Center.

      To learn more about the circular economy, watch here.
