PARENT SATISFACTION SURVEY
Our annual survey invites you to communicate your satisfaction about the Miquon program to our staff. Your feedback is important; it enables us to improve our program and services to better meet your family’s needs. Please note, responses to this survey are SSL encrypted and recorded anonymously. Also note questions are intentionally randomized. Thanks for your time!
A Friendly Reminder about Our Parent Handbook Policy
We need to know first thing in the morning how your child is going home that day. If there is any departure from the normal routine, please talk to your child, pin a note on him/her, and call the School if you have any doubt that we will get the message.
If you must change the going-home plan during the day, please call school before lunchtime (12:45 pm) so we can change our lists.
Spring Fair is May 19: Are You Ready?!!

We are so grateful for the introduction of a new Gaga Pit to our campus, a donation of the Class of 2017 and built by several alumni hands during our Spring Work Party.
You may hear from your children that the Gaga Pit is closed during Choice Time, as PE Teacher Lisa Mann walks through the rules for safe and fair play with each classroom group during their PE specialist this week.

Abington Friends School Community Conversation on Race
Weds, June 13, 6:30 pm | Abington Free Library Community Rm, 1030 Old York Rd
Peggy Macintosh’s “Knapsack of White Privilege” will help inform our conversation about the need for ongoing anti-racist work, perhaps using the recent Starbucks incident as a jumping off point. We hope you can join us for this important community conversation. We have to keep working together to understand one another’s points of view and to help keep one another safe and thriving in our community.
No need to have attended any of the other conversations to join us for this one. Everyone is welcome! Bring a friend!
If you have questions about the event, get in touch with Jeri Bond Whatley.
