On November 26, twenty five family members and friends attended the second of four 2013-14 Visitor Coffees at Friends School of Minnesota. The visit started with coffee and a chat with Head of School Lili Herbert. Then our guests visited classrooms to see FSM in action. Thank you to everyone who was able to attend this event!
