Welcome back, Friends!
It’s been a busy first week of school at Virginia Beach Friends School. Happily, the Friends faculty and staff are in full agreement, we have not seen very many transition tears this week. The overwhelming response from students of all ages, when asked how their first week is going, is simple…”It’s great!”
Next week on Thursday, September 1st from 6:00PM to 7:00PM will be Back-to-School Night. Back-to-School Night is a wonderful opportunity for parents to touch base with teachers, put names to faces, and learn more about what the school year will entail.
Below is a schedule of the night for parents to follow based on their child’s grade and building.
