Dear Friedman Students, Staff and Families,
I can’t thank you all enough. We have raised more than enough money to build a new roof on our sister school in Gbessah, Liberia. It is only through your kindness and generosity that this was accomplished. We will be having a school-wide assembly to present the money to the Mission to Liberia organization in June. The date is to be determined. Thank you, again, for your hard work and dedication to the children in Liberia.
We are looking for Friedman Students that have members of their family on active duty. We would like you to be our honored guests and carry our service flags as well as our American Flag. You do not have to have family members serving to march with us. Please contact email@example.com if you would like to participate in this year's parade.
Friedman Gets Ready for Penny Wars! Be sure to bring in your pennies from April 26th to April 29th. Winning classes will get an ice cream sundae party in the courtyard.

Who was Benjamin A. Friedman?
Benjamin A. Friedman, a World War II veteran, was elected to Taunton’s municipal council in 1961 and went on to a successful run for mayor in 1963, serving until 1970. Under Friedman’s administration, the city saw many improvements, including the construction of Edmund Hatch Bennett School, the dedication of the Vietnam Memorial Fountain on Church Green, and the opening of Massasoit State Park.
