May Day

Category: GENERAL

Date: May 1, 2023 - May 1, 2023

Time: 8:00 AM - 8:30 AM

Contact: Daniel Potter -

We are excited to announce that we are revitalizing a pre-COVID tradition of May Day at PFS. On May 1st, PFS will be visited by a number of ritual dance groups that dance at dawn at the Battlefield and then have breakfast together in our Great Room. In return for our hospitality, these groups will perform for us starting at 8:00 a.m. New this year, students in 4th-8th grade will be sharing dance performances (maypole, stick dancing, and longsword dancing) with the school community and our guests.

On Monday, May 1st, we encourage you to make sure your child arrives on time and invite you to stick around after drop-off for these performances. They will begin promptly at 8:00 a.m. and conclude around 8:30 a.m. We will be gathering in front of the Schoolhouse (weather permitting) or the Great Room (in the event of rain). We hope to see you there!
