Continuing a much-beloved tradition, ECFS celebrated Founder’s Day on Friday, May 10. After the assembled Middle and Upper Schoolers sang the Ethical Culture, Fieldston Lower, and Middle School anthems, Head of School Jessica Bagby made opening remarks to the community and honored the legacy of faculty and staff who are retiring at the end of the year. This year’s keynote speaker, Anne Klaeysen, a Leader of the New York Society for Ethical Culture, spoke about the legacy of Felix Adler and its impact on our students today. The program concluded with strings, jazz vocal, and choral performances; statements by the incoming and outgoing Fieldston Student Government Co-Presidents; and a performance of the Fieldston alma mater.
