FAC Weekly Update

September 11, 2020

Good morning, Fine Arts Center Family!

The first week of Attendance Plan 2 was fantastic - it was great to see our studios with more students, and we are starting to get back to a feeling of normalcy. Thank you for your continued support on the home-front!

Here is the latest from the halls of the Fine Arts Center...

This Week's Student Leadership Lesson

Be Impeccable With Your Word

Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.

-Don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements

This Monday Night - September 14

Join us on Monday, September 14 at 7 pm for an In (Virtual) Conversation with Dr. Geffrey Davis featuring his latest collection of poetry, Night Angler. Published in 2019, this award-winning collection reads as an evolving love letter and meditation on what it means to raise an American family. With a deep sense of gratitude and wonder, Davis delivers a heart-strong prayer that longs for home, for safety for black lives, and for the messy success of breaking through the trauma of growing up during the crack epidemic to create a new model of fatherhood.

Dr. Davis will read excerpts and answer questions. Sarah Blackman, Director of Creative Writing at the Fine Arts Center, will moderate.

The event is free, but registration is required.

  • Should these restrictions result in a hardship to your family relative to the parent’s ability to get to work on time, please call our Main Office. Before doing so, we respectfully request that you attempt to work out a resolution with your workplace. If no compromise can be found, we can accept a very limited number of students before the above building access times.

  • If you have not done so, please read the emails and letters that I sent home. Many students who arrived at the wrong time, either in the morning or afternoon, had received my emails but had not read them. Students are sent the emails and therefore should get in the habit of staying informed.

  • Students who attend the FAC in the afternoon and go to Wade Hampton in the morning need to stay at Wade Hampton until 1:15 p.m. Dr. Grant has space for these students to sit, socially distanced, and work on homework. We do not have such a space at the FAC.

  • Studio Time is not available to students while we are under social distancing restrictions.

As always, please call or email with any questions!
