With the chilly autumn breeze came Friends Academy’s Fall Fair. Each year, students look forward to the usual attractions such as thrilling rides, Gideon’s Attic, and dunking Mr. Morris in the dunk tank. This year the fair featured many new and exciting activities. The Tressed Out hair styling booth, a pristine addition, offered hair coloring and fun extensions. Bibity Bopity Boo, a charming princess themed booth, kept younger siblings occupied while their parents and siblings mingled.
The culinary booths also added some delicious treats this year. From a slushy machine to Friends Academy’s homemade hot sauce, everybody found tasty foods.
Gideon’s Attic sold five thousand pairs of luxury brand shoes, featuring Stuart Weitzman, Tommy Hilfiger, and Michael Kors. For those who planned on purchasing stylish school shoes for the fall, Gideon’s Attic was the perfect opportunity to buy designer shoes for a great cause at an amazing price.
The Senior Homecoming Dance after the bonfire on Friday night was an incredible success. With a white-out theme, the entire upper school came together for an amazing night of dancing and fun. Students immensely enjoyed the DJ blasting music not only during the dance but for the entirety of the bonfire!
The Friends Academy community thanks all who contributed their time and effort to make the dance and the fair a huge success and well-anticipated tradition.
