{{#lst:Durham, NC|navbar}}: Carolina Friends School


Carolina Friends School is a private school on the western outskirts of Durham, NC. Founded by Quakers, and reflecting the Quaker philosophy, the school often does things differently from other schools.(For example: Students and Staff "settle in" together for 15 minutes or more in the morning, with no formal reading of "announcements"; individuals speak as they feel the need.

Upper School students help with the maintenance and instruction at the school as part of "School Service" classes, or did as of 1982, when I went there; I presume this still applies.)

News from CFS

Apparently CFS is now actively promoting and actively advertising itself, which was something they never did when we were there in the 1970s and 1980s:

You've seen our ads in various print publications, helped us to distribute flyers throughout the community, and heard our spots on WUNC FM. Now we're reaching out in some new directions.

To hear a lively conversation about the CFS dance program, tune in to WCHL (1390 AM) this Sunday, 12:30 - 1:00, when Jon Wilner interviews Annie Dwyer, Mike Hanas, and Lydia Kramer on his arts program. Those who are unable to hear the program on Sunday can access a podcast on the WCHL website.

Mike will be interviewed on Ron Stutts' morning program later this month, and you can hear radio spots about CFS broadcast by Mike on WCHL from now through December 3.

Also, jazz lovers may hear underwriting spots on WNCU (90.7 FM).

We're on the air, spreading the good word about CFS. As always, thanks for your support.

Our feeling is that the place has gotten too big already, and does not need to be expanding any further. –Woozle 09:34, 4 November 2006 (EST)
