  • Join Us! Divisional "Sneak Peeks" for Current Fay Parents

    Are you curious about what's in store for your child when he or she moves from Primary School to Lower School, or from Lower School to Upper School? Now's your chance to learn more: this year, we are excited to invite you to a Divisional "Sneak Peek" Coffee so you can meet the division head, ask your burning questions, and even visit a class or two. Please note: these "sneak peek" events are not the same as the "step up" coffees that Lainie Schuster and Sarah Remsberg offer in the spring for the students transitioning from second to third grade, or from sixth to seventh grade, where there's a lot of very specific, detailed information about the new grade level. Think of the Sneak Peeks as a more general opportunity to get a feel for what's coming up by having a casual chat with the division head and popping into a few classrooms. The dates for each Sneak Peek coffee are below; please click here to RSVP for the Lower School event or click here to RSVP for the Upper School event.
    Primary School Sneak Peek for Early Learning Center Families: Thursday, January 24, 8:00 - 9:00 a.m. (Primary Commons)
    Lower School Sneak Peek for Primary School Families: Wednesday, January 30, 8:15 - 9:15 a.m. (Root Meeting Room - note this is 15 minutes later than the time indicated in the letter that Lower School parents received from Lainie)
    Upper School Sneak Peek for Lower School Families: Thursday, January 31, 8:00 - 9:00 a.m. (Root Meeting Room)

  • Taste of Nations is Coming Soon - We Need Your Help!

    Taste of Nations will take place on Saturday, February 2, from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. in Harlow Gym. This beloved, longstanding Fay tradition offers students, faculty, and parents an opportunity to share foods from many nations together in an informal setting as we celebrate our community's rich diversity. Click here for more information about how you can volunteer by cooking your own dish and/or hosting boarding students as they prepare a delicious dish from their home countries. Please contact Sarah Ripton at with any questions.

    Please Note: The last day to sign up to bring boarders home to cook is next Wednesday, January 23, so CORI reports can be run for all family members that will be present in the home. Anyone is welcome to sign up to bring a dish after January 23, but you will not be allowed to host a boarder if you did not sign up in time to have a CORI check completed.

    Volunteer to Set Up and Decorate: The Fay community is grateful for all the assistance that the Parents' Association provides in setting up and decorating for Taste of Nations. Please click here if you are interested in volunteering to assist with set up and decorations. This is a community event and all assistance is welcome and appreciated. For questions regarding setup please contact Pragati Mathur at or Shveta Bhasin at
