The Brooklyn Friends community jammed into the Pearl Street Meeting House to hear Head of School, Crissy Cáceres, unveil the school’s dynamic Strategic Vision. The evening, entitled A Night to Shine Our Light, was attended by more than 300 family members, colleagues, and friends, and was certainly a night to remember!
Following the Strategic Vision presentation, Crissy invited everyone up to our Upper Gym and rooftop to celebrate the big event. There was food, drink, music, activities, and more! We want to express our deepest gratitude to everyone who was able to attend.
Our Strategic Vision has been scaffolded to work in three connected parts, each centering the strategic initiatives that BFS will adapt, grow, and thrive amidst the changing demands of contemporary education. Scaffolding the strategic plan to begin with us, Brooklyn Friends School, then the borough of Brooklyn, and finally, the world, is a purposeful and strategic approach that aligns with BFS’ mission, values, and role as an educational leader.
We invite you to click on the link below to view our tool, the Strategic Vision microsite, through which you can explore all of the Vision’s initiatives and their respective queries, actions, and outcomes. We encourage you to dive right in and share in our excitement for the future of BFS that we will build together. View the Strategic Vision Microsite →
We are thrilled to share with you the first step in this journey with the official launch of the Minding our Light campaign for the Fund for Brooklyn Friends School. Minding our Light celebrates and seeks to strengthen how our Light illuminates and reflects in every facet of who we are: our academics, athletics, arts, our pillars, our colleagues, and our home.
As we embark on this exciting journey together, it is our deepest hope that each and every member of our community will contribute to this work and affirm our path forward with support for the Fund. Support the Fund for Brooklyn Friends School →
