FALL 2019

Letting Our Light Shine BY EDWARD MARSHALL, HEAD OF SCHOOL

When I talk with colleagues about the rhythm of their work and weekly activities, a few share my excitement for building and tending a fire. This is not typically in the Head of School job description, to be sure. Yet every Wednesday morning during cold winter months, I put on a big, warm, winter coat and walk from my office to the Green Street Friends Meeting meeting house, located in the heart of our school’s campus, to build a fire before our weekly Meeting for Worship. As students take their seats on benches that are more than a century old and shared by countless alumni and Meeting Members before them, the fireplace on the meeting house’s north wall emits a glow of warmth and comfort that envelops all. Faculty, staff, students, and visitors gather for thirty minutes of reflection and quiet every Wednesday morning from 8:30-9:00 a.m. Students remain silent unless they feel “moved to speak”, which I recently heard Kim Kraemer, 5th Grade Teacher and Co-Clerk of our Quaker Ways Faculty Renewal Committee, describe as, “A feeling that starts in my stomach and builds and builds until I say whatever is on my heart.” A 1st Grader might share that we should all be kind or a 6th Grader might make a political statement. I recall entering the meeting house twenty-five years ago as I toured campus during my interview to become Head of School. From that visit and my work as a member of the Greene Street Friends School Board of Trustees (then called “School Committee”), it was clear that both Greene Street Friends School and Green Street Friends Meeting were committed to offering a Quaker education to a diverse group of students, no matter religious background, belief, or lack thereof. The school’s mission to create a truly diverse community spoke to the Meeting’s Quaker belief of the Inner

Light residing in us all. It was also clear that there was a deep and meaningful relationship between the Meeting and Greene Street Friends School. The late Shirley Bansen, for example, taught here for more than twenty years and was a faithful member of the Meeting and brought her Quaker beliefs to her work in the classroom, treating students with kindness and love. We still have teachers, faculty, and Board members who are invested in both communities and I appreciate their perspectives as we continue to refine the way Quakerism is approached here at Greene Street Friends. Prospective families, often stepping into the meeting house for the first time, ask what a Quaker education means at Greene Street Friends School. Will their child undergo religious instruction or sign anything saying they adhere to a Quaker theology or belief system? While students learn about Quaker history and about what some Quakers tend to believe (there is far from universal agreement about what all Quakers believe, which I think is a good thing!), we believe Quaker practices to be fundamental to our students’ experiences with us. For example, each student in 1st-8th Grades participates in Meeting for Worship weekly. Each spring our Kindergarten students begin visiting with their 8th Grade partners to learn how to sit still for half an hour and identify when they feel moved to speak. This builds on their experiences, beginning in Pre-Kindergarten, through Differentiated Meeting for Worship and Quaker Story, which highlights a different theme or person in Quaker history who might have a lesson to teach today’s students.

Around school, students will see posters and hear read alouds featuring our “Quaker Word of the Month”. Each month, the Quaker Ways School Renewal Committee leads us in activities that explore a different Quaker value. Some upcoming Quaker Words of the Month this school year include: Discernment, Light, Peace, Witness, Justice, and Consensus. These practices go beyond living into a school’s traditional or academic mission. For me, Quaker practices are all about developing the whole person into someone with a chronic social conscience. We hope our alumni are always asking themselves, “Is this the right, or ethical, thing to do? Is this the responsible way to handle a situation? Does this action honor the Inner Light inside of the other person?” Driven by these questions, students encourage all of us to take Quaker practices and ideals seriously as a school. Students led the development of our Annual Stay Woke Day program that invites Middle School students from all around Philadelphia to engage in workshops, keynotes, and conversations about race and racism in the Middle School experience. Students continue to lead groups like GSAFE (Gender and Sexuality Alliance for Everyone) and Feminist Club, which celebrates everyone’s Inner Light and advocates for justice and equal treatment. Our students have put Quaker practices into action, leading walk outs and holding Town Hall meetings to address topics like gun control and environmentalism. While our students have been reflecting on Quaker values and putting them into practice, so has the leadership of Greene Street

WORD STREET

Soon it will once again be time for me to build fires before each week’s Meeting for Worship. As the seasons change and winter gives way to spring, I hope our students and future alumni can still see and smell the fire that once filled the room and recall the feeling of sitting on those benches and deeply listening to those around them, while also listening for something inside to tell them to speak their truth into the world.

THIS I BELIEVE NANDI BAYARD ‘20

FROM THE AGE THAT I WAS ABLE TO COMPREHEND THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE, MY PARENTS PREACHED TO MY SIBLINGS AND I ABOUT HOW IMPORTANT IT WAS THAT WE TREAT ALL PEOPLE WITH KINDNESS. I BELIEVED THEM, BUT FOR A WHILE, I HAD NO PERSONAL EXPERIENCES TO PROVE THAT BEING KIND WAS WORTH IT IN LIFE. I still understood where they were coming from because I was under the strong influence of such kind people in my family. My Grandfather (Pop-pop) passed away in 2017, but my Dad told me that he would always call everyone he spoke to a “friend.” My own Father is in education, so I saw how he treated every student with great kindness and respect no matter how they treated him. I also saw how my mother greeted everyone with a beautiful smile and always had the kindest things to say. So obviously, I picked up those great characteristics and for the most part, I worked hard to be kind to people. An experience this past June encouraged me to really appreciate the importance of kindness. My Dad and I had just parked the car and were headed to a festival that we were going to attend. We were running a little late because of traffic. So my mom and her friend had already arrived and were waiting for us there. We were in a hurry and had no plans of stopping. It was around noon. I was sweating rivers because it was about 90 degrees and I had just finished a two hour dance class. My feet ached with every step and I couldn’t wait for the moment I could sit down in my mom’s pull out chair. We were almost there when I noticed a petite, brown skin, elderly woman pacing

back and forth in the middle of the sidewalk. She stopped my Dad and started talking to him. I wanted to roll my eyes. Why did she have to stop us? We were walking like we had somewhere to go. Didn’t she see that? We did not have time to chat with her. At that moment, I got a glimpse of her face. She looked extremely worried and in distress. And then I realized that she spoke a different language. As she continued to talk, I recognized that the language she spoke was foreign to me. My Dad and I tried our best to understand her and then figured that she was asking for directions. She wanted to know how to get to Supreme Market. My Dad knew where that was and pointed in the direction that she should go in. She shook her head, meaning that she didn’t understand. The woman failed to comprehend any of our methods to try to communicate. I was officially concerned. Right before I prepared for my Dad to tell the woman that we couldn’t help her, she started to cry. This woman was lost in a busy city and spoke zero English. I could only imagine how scared she was. My Dad looked at me and said, “Let’s go, we’re gonna walk her there.” My Dad pulled out the GPS on his phone and the three of us were headed to Supreme Market.

I don’t think my Dad knows how grateful I am that he had the patience to listen to and help that woman. I didn’t realize how much it would mean to me and how proud I would feel after we helped her. I believe that it is so important to be kind. You never know what a person is going through and a simple act of kindness could mean the world to someone. After this experience, I recognized that humanity is not kind enough. People can get so absorbed in themselves that being kind to others is always a last thought or never even crosses their mind. This is especially the case in my story because my Dad and I could have walked right past her and continued our walk to the (continued, page 4) greenestreetfriends.org

festival, worrying only about ourselves and getting there on time. However, we did not. We took the time to walk several blocks with the woman causing us to arrive at our destination even later than expected. Sometimes I wonder how many people walked past or ignored this clearly upset woman that day. I wonder what would have happened if we had ignored her. I wonder if I would have ignored her if my Dad wasn’t with me. The woman got to her destination safely and was very grateful for our kindness. I am more grateful that the woman stopped us for our help that day than anyone could imagine.

WORD ON THE STREET FALL 2019


Horizons 2019 Summer Recap BY MALIA NEAL, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, HORIZONS AT GREENE STREET FRIENDS SCHOOL

The leaves are turning, and temperatures are dropping, but I’ve got a summer state of mind. In fact, all I can think about is the remarkable six weeks of summer that Horizons hosted at Greene Street Friends School (HGSFS) just experienced! Not only did we welcome 64 students from our partner school, Wister Elementary, to our campus, the program brought on its fourth cohort of Kindergarten students. Our students showed up every day ready to learn, explore and have fun—and that’s exactly we what did! Each day for our students consisted of three hours of academic instruction in the classroom and with a reading specialist. Our curriculum, which emphasizes literacy skill-building, STEAM, and project-based learning, challenged students to construct dioramas, read lots of books, and participate in a variety of artsfocused activities. Students grew in sight-word recognition by 12% Kindergarten and first grade students grew an average of 3.7 months in literacy over the 6-week program period. Second and third grade students grew 1.2 months in literacy skills on average. In addition, students learned to swim at Germantown Life Education Center (GLEC), where they received lessons three times per week. I’m excited to report that several of our students not only learned to swim, but passed the “deep-end test” by swimming from the shallow end of the pool to 10-feet in a minute or less. While many of our students were initially scared of water, they faced their fears and pushed themselves to develop confidence in the pool and beyond. Our time at GLEC reflects a commitment to help students build the social-emotional skills they need to set goals, attain them, and experience success. Learning continued off-campus, too! We enjoyed twelve field trips, including a visit to the Fabric Workshop Museum, Northwestern

Stables, and Wissahickon Trail. On site (believe it or not), there was more fun, and more learning. GSFS parent John Deininger led special assembly on flight that taught our students about air density, lift and drag. Our friends at Episcopal Academy came to join us for a special performance by Kulu Mele African Drum and Dance Ensemble, and at our first-ever talent show, students owned the stage in their right, singing, dancing, and showing off their football skills. There was even a puppet show led by a mother-son duo!

“I love the fact that Horizons is fun for the kids, so it has a camp feel, but is still very much a learning environment. This program helps prevent the summer slump and now I feel my daughter is definitely ready for third grade.” —HORIZONS PARENT #6WeeksOfHappiness wouldn’t have been possible without the help of our volunteers (35 in total!) and strong community partners, including Germantown Life Education Center, Joseph E. Coleman Library, Philabundance, Reading Terminal Market, and Vetri Community Partnership. We have come a long way since our first class of 12 Kindergarteners, and we have farther to go still. Next summer, we’ll add a fifth cohort of Kindergarten students, growing from 64 to 80 students, and increasing from a teaching team of 10 to a team of 14. We will also engage with the Horizons parent community in new and meaningful through a newly formed Caregiver Advisory Council for our Horizons grown-ups. I joined Horizons at Greene Street Friends School to help support student learning in Germantown in the summer and all year long. I hope that you will join us on this journey!
