Scarlet & Gray Day Reimagined
Scarlet and Gray Day is back! After a brief hiatus, we are excited to announce Scarlet and Gray Day will be on October 16, 2021. This is a MASKED event. Put your masks on, bring a blanket, and come out and show your Friends School spirit! The School, Athletic Department and Parents Association all come together to provide a great day for the whole Friends Community! Bring the family to cheer on our athletic teams, bring a blanket to enjoy the great food, and purchase some Spirit Wear and accessories! It’s a Friends School tradition you don’t want to miss!
Sports will go on rain or shine. Check here for weather updates. However, due to continuing COVID-19 concerns, the carnival for Scarlet and Gray Day will not be held this year.
Many parent and caregiver volunteers are needed to make this day a great success. Click here to Volunteer for Scarlet and Gray Day.
To keep everyone as safe as possible, particularly our youngest friends, we ask everyone to wear masks. This is a MASKED event. The event will follow all of the school’s current Health and Safety Protocols.
*Please note that all sales will be cash only.*
