B.F. Day Students Activities

We at B.F. Day feel that participation in student-oriented activities is a vital part of a student’s education. A wide range of activities are provided, some of which are included in the list below.

Village Day

Village Day is one of the most-anticipated events of the school year! Check out the Each classroom planned, developed, and staffed its own business or service with the help of the Fremont community, parents and other volunteers. Some of the creative businesses from the past include a library, radio station, pet store, thrift shop, greeting card shop, and a toy store! It was a great event! Activity Coordinator

Students complete Village reflections each year. Here are a few testimonials!

What were your greatest challenges?

“My greatest challenges were keeping up with the customers coming in and that it made my legs sore.” and “Putting the money in the right spot.”

What were your greatest successes?

“My greatest success was probably calming people down while they were waiting in line.” and “My greatest success was having fun!”
