March Madness winners

The FHS Library asked the question: What pop culture moment was most significant in moving forward the cause of social justice in America? We created a bracket of 16 all-stars from sports and entertainment, and FHS spoke, ultimately naming Jackie Robinson's integration of Major League Baseball the most significant moment. Congrats to FHS students Mike Celestin and Hannah Krier for correctly predicting the results of the contest!

Ms. Courchesne's Book Pick

This dark fairy tale follows the two characters as they cross through time , reincarnated into different bodies and ages, finding one another in surprising ways in each "reboot."

Mrs. Tosi's Book Pick

This book asks questions of morality and loyalty, passion over logic, and right vs wrong. No path through the story is easy and no solution obvious. The background story of every character is perfectly developed. You may be surprised to discover that a story about a little hockey town far away can make you think about how you approach life in general.

Ms. Preziosi & Ms. Treitman's Book Pick

Ms. Preziosi, Social Worker, and Ms. Treitman, Math Teacher, are teaming up to recommend Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine:

Eleanor is quirky and unwittingly funny. We fell in love with her and we were rooting for her to be ok throughout the whole book.
