FVS students have the opportunity to attend Round Square conferences at national, regional and global levels. The scope of the annual Round Square international conference reaches around the globe, bringing together more than 1,000 students and school leaders from nearly 100 schools on six continents.
In 2016-17, FVS students have two opportunities to attend Round Square conferences. Jordyn Greidanus '18, Izzy Nuñez '17, Elinor Sisk '18, Riley Snyder '17 and JT Winston '18 will attend the 50th Annual Round Square Conference, Oct. 7-15, at the Aiglon School in Switzerland. The delegation departs on Oct. 7, spends a layover day in Iceland, then flies to Geneva for a one-hour train trip to the school. Students will engage in activities related to IDEALS (internationalism, democracy, environment, adventure, leadership, and service) with delegations from Round Square schools from around the world.
Five students will also be attending the Americas Regional Conference at Belgrano Day school in Argentina, April 18-25. They are Celeste Carter '19, Haruna Kakubari '17, Skye McCurdy '18, Henry Neff '18 and Owen Rask '19.
