Circus Prep Continues in Pod 3/4

Pod 3/4 continues to prepare for our May 7th Zoom on Zoom Circus!  We are working very hard to craft a unique and exciting performance in an equally unique platform.  Stay tuned for more info on this important spring tradition at PMFS!


Grandparents and Special Friends Day

We celebrated Grandparents and Special Friends Day virtually this year. Our friends joined us for Meeting for Worship to start the day, and then moved on to special activities with individual classrooms. While we would rather celebrate the day in person, it was still very special to have them join us on Zoom. Thank you to all the Grandparents and Special Friends for taking time out of your day to participate!


Visit the PMFS Online Bookshop

Have you checked the PMFS Online Bookshop?  New reading suggestions have been added for each grade. Make a purchase for Spring Break reading, or get started with filling your child’s bookshelf for the summer!  Any book can be purchased through Bookshop.org (not just the PMFS suggestions) and every purchase supports PMFS and the Children’s Book World in Haverford.  Take a look and buy a book!

Weekly Query

We have recently re-introduced queries into our weekly Meeting for Worship. For those who may not know, a query is a question asked at the beginning of Meeting for Worship that you then reflect on during Meeting.

This week our Grandparents and Special Friends joined us for Meeting for Worship and Pod 5/6 posed the question “What is your greatest joy?” Perhaps unsurprisingly, all Grandparents and Special Friends agreed that their grandchildren were the greatest joy there could be. We loved having them all join us for this special day!
