The 2022 e-Congress: Encouraging Students “How to Think” – Preparation for Participation in Our Democracy and as Citizens of the World
At BFS, while we engage students in a comprehensive educational experience designed to develop their minds, whole selves, and qualities of personhood, one overarching principle is not to teach them “what to think” but rather “how to think.”
As part of 4th Grade's year-long service-learning project, the students raised over $1,000 for the Bucks County SPCA.
Throughout the year in Kindergarten, as an integral part of Social Studies, Teachers Jaime and Stephanie have focused on an in-depth multidisciplinary study of identity. Through this unit, the students have explored and discovered ways they are similar to and different from their classmates and, specifically, what makes them unique and special. The students explored topics such as hair and the importance it has within different cultures, eye color and the science of genes, gender stereotypes and how we can break away from them, and completed a project highlighting attributes that the students think are "the best" about themselves.

The 3rd Graders enjoyed a delicious day of educational fun at the Annual Sap Boiling, where they spent the afternoon enjoying the warm weather boiling the sap they collected from the maple trees in the Meetinghouse graveyard into a thick, rich syrup.
The 7th Grade Social Studies Class held their Annual Medieval Museum this month as the culmination of their recent unit on Non-European Medieval Civilizations.
Paul's Blog: I feel overwhelming gratitude and enthusiastic anticipation as I write to provide the community with an update on our Facilities Master Plan and our progress during the design phase. In just a few months, we continue to hope to break ground to start the first phase of physical improvements to the campus that will ensure that BFS can advance its mission in a sustainable way through the rest of the 21st century and beyond.
No BFS education is complete without a turn down the famous BFS sledding hill!
