Middle School students took part in the annual Minimester in late March. The four-day workshop, in lieu of the typical class schedule, explored themes that help each student grow as an individual both at Haverford and in their own communities.


Boys at The Haverford School performed a variety of service projects throughout the month of December. The service projects support many area organizations, including local military members serving overseas, Life Centers of Delaware County, Project HOME, Toys for Tots, the Palm Senior Center, and Eldernet. The winter service projects are part of Haverford’s Service Learning Program, and led by students of all ages. 


Haverford students are sending some holiday cheer to soldiers serving in Afghanistan. First-graders wrote letters expressing thanks and wishes for a safe return home. Director of Service Learning Jini Loos coordinated the letter writing in conjunction with the first grade teachers.
