Our Strategic Vision


Throughout the school year, many opportunities are held to celebrate our school together. Often presented in partnership with Brooklyn Friends and Families committees, these events create community, raise funds and uplift our mission. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate in the planning of these events.

Our Events

Spring Fundraiser: 

Each spring the school, in partnership with the Brooklyn Friends and Families, hosts a community event to raise funds for the school. Families, grandfamilies, colleagues and alumni are welcome to join us! Past events have included the BFS at 150 Gala (2018), Friends Together Again (2022), and The Sky’s the Limit (2023). The 2024 Gala is “A Toast to Tomorrow” and will take place on Wednesday, March 13 from 7 to 10pm at Brooklyn Winery. Details here.


The winter months in Brooklyn might feel a bit dreary, but when our community gathers together on an ice skating rink, it’s friendly and warm! SkateFest 2024 is Saturday, March 2 from 12:30 to 3pm. 


The best way to end a school year is a block party, right?! Each June, our community gathers for fun, food, and games on our very own Pearl Street. Plan now to be a part of SpringFest 2024 on Saturday, June 1.
