Sharing Meals, Building Community

Dining is an important and longstanding tradition at Fay. Students gather each day in one of our two dining rooms on campus for family-style meals. It is a wonderful time of day to relax, reconnect with friends, reinforce the importance of courtesy and manners, and build community. 

Each day, our dining rooms are abuzz with chatter, laughter, and conversation. Students announce athletic games to applause in Upper and 较低的学校, and the everyone in the Dining Room serenades students on their birthdays. 小学ers relish eliciting laughter on “Tell a Joke Tuesday” or impressing their peers with a fascinating piece of knowledge on “Fun Fact Friday.” While some rules and traditions accompany family-type dining, our students know that mealtimes are anything but stuffy!

Lower and 上学校

In Lower and 上学校, tables are supervised by faculty and staff, and every two weeks students are assigned to a different table as a way to encourage them to make new friends and build connections across the community. In grades three through nine, students take turns as waiters, helping to set the table, 服务, 还有干净的盘子. In addition to the main meal that is 服务d, Lower and 上学校 students can visit our salad bar and hot bar for additional options.


在小学, table assignments change monthly, and at each table students are joined by faculty and staff, as well as a student helper from grades six through nine. Our 小学 students love this opportunity to get to know some of the “big kids” on campus! 小学 students are encouraged to try the main meal that is 服务d each day, but there are also addition offerings available (yogurt, 水果, 三明治, 蔬菜, 和其他零食).
