Friendship Week: November 11th - 17th

A student from the Hanlon School has been working very hard to organize a Friendship Week. She invites us to...


Join the global movement to make the world a friendly and more inviting place. 
Let’s all come together to celebrate friendship, love, care, empathy, and leadership. 
Let’s befriend, spread friendship and celebrate. 


The website she and her family have created includes lots of examples of simple ways to help foster friendships and kindness towards others. I encourage you all to choose an activity (or create your own!) and promote and celebrate friendship with our students throughout the week.

Babson Soccer Clinics

Last Friday, November 8th, members of the Babson College Men's Soccer Team joined us at the Deerfield school. They stayed for all three of our recess periods and lead small-sided soccer games with any student who wished to participate. All the students who played had a wonderful time and showed excellent sportsmanship towards their classmates and the Babson soccer players.


Thank you so much to Mr. and Mrs. McHugh for arranging this special recess event for our students. Thank you so much to Deerfield fourth-grader, Will McHugh, for once again sharing his teammates with us and reminding us of the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship.
