The Latest News and Information from AC Flora High School
Wednesday, November 22-Friday, November 24- Thanksgiving Break
Reminder from the Front Office Staff
Students should come to the front office and check the lost and found for any items they may have misplaced since the first of the school year. We will be donating all items to charity the first week of December. Check to see if that lost sweater, bag, pair of shorts, lunch box, water bottle - whatever - is hiding in the bottom of the black bin!
The AC Flora Student Council is most grateful for the generosity of the students, staff, parents, and community members who contributed food and gift cards to help us reach our goal to provide 30 of our own Falcon Families with the Thanksgiving they deserve! THANK YOU!
The second half of our winter Flora Gives project is still underway. The Families Helping Families partnership with The Palmetto Project has 9 out of 30 families that have been adopted, as of yesterday. Please use the link below to sign up to help us provide gifts for the holidays for families in our immediate community.
We thank you for your kindness and generosity during this holiday season! #FalconsForever
