#GoTheDistance - FSW's Distance Learning Initiative

This campaign ended on May 17, 2020, but you can still make a gift to Friends School Of Wilmington by clicking here!

On March 18th, as a result of COVID-19, FSW transitioned to emergency remote learning. Our faculty shifted in response to the current challenges in just under three days, and they continue to evolve, support, and inspire our students. 

Pivoting to distance learning has revealed the resilience, resolve and creativity of our faculty, students, and families. It has also brought to the forefront our need to support teaching and learning with reliable and upgraded technological tools.

Please consider making a gift in support of our vital and creative uses of technology. Below are a few examples of software and hardware that our teachers and students are using as we #GotheDistance.

  • Student Chromebooks 
  • Faculty Laptops 
  • IXL, Interactive Math: Class Program
  • Everyday Mathematics Program
  • Keyboarding without Tears Program
  • Raz Kids Guiding Reading Program
  • Seesaw Plus Program

On behalf of the students at Friends School, our dedicated faculty and staff, and all who share our commitment to children, we thank you for helping to keep Friends School of Wilmington strong and growing. Your tax-deductible gift is deeply appreciated and makes an immediate impact.
