Story

Newtown Friends School is a Pre-K-8th grade Quaker school in Newtown PA. Our students study the Quaker spices,(simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality and stewardship). Once a month different grades pair up to work together and learn more about Quaker ideals and work together to partake in special activities designed to highlight these ideals. Together the students painted our parachute.

Sustainable Actions in this Community

Our students recycles and compost here at school. Last year they embarked on a water and electric saving campaign. They even took part in a contest raising awareness for an endangered species...the golden lion tamarin. They raised enough money to plant 10 trees in the rainforest of Brazil and planted trees and shrubs in our community for local wildlife.
