We Party For Education
Fletcher Maynard will be taking a family trip to Senegal from April 18th to April 24th. On the trip we will explore the country’s arts and culture as we visit various popular destinations including the African Renaissance Monument and the famous Goree Island. Students, teachers, and community members have been holding various fundraising events to support the trip and will continue to do so into April. On Friday, January 24 the FMA faculty held one such fundraising event.

Led by committee of FMA faculty and staff the school community came together to host a Senegal themed dance and music party on Friday evening (January 24) at the Elks Lodge in Area IV Cambridge. Volunteers spread the word across Cambridge, prepared food, decorated the Lodge and hosted the event. The event featured live Senegalese music performed by a local band with Senegalese members. All together more than 150 people attended the fundraising party and helped the FMA raise much-needed funds for the upcoming trip.

The FMA faculty and staff would like to thank all the people that volunteered, donated funds, and/or attended the event. Your support will help us meet our fundraising goal for the trip. Our fundraising efforts are not over, however. Before the April date we will continue holding more events to raise funds for the trip. Please contact the school at 617.349.6588 if you would like to volunteer or donate funds.
