Dining is an important and longstanding tradition at Fay. Students gather each day in one of our two dining rooms on campus for family-style meals. It is a wonderful time of day to relax, reconnect with friends, and reinforce the importance of courtesy and manners.
The lunch tables are supervised by faculty and staff, and every two weeks, students are assigned to a different table, as a way to encourage them to make new friends and build connections across the community. In grades three through nine, students take turns as waiters (in the New England boarding school tradition), helping to set the table, serve, and clear plates, and Upper School students also volunteer to help in the Primary School Dining Room during lunch periods.
