Week of January 11th


As we come to a close of the 1st semester of the 2015-16 school year, we have a big week of testing ahead. Thank you all for your Time, Affection, Love and Patience in dealing with the scholars at our school and treating them in most cases like they are one of your own. I want to encourage you to always strive to "Be the One" in everything that you do and continue to put your best foot forward! Mr. Esquivel and I have nothing but love for you and always remember one thing...IT'S ALL ABOUT THE KIDS!!!!


To start off the new year, let's recognize the Teacher of the Month who is none other than the great Fred Wilmer! He dazzled Faith Family's guests, students, and parents with an array of performances that showed just how magnificent our scholars sound throughout the holiday season. Mr. Wilmer is a true leader who culminates the voices of all students. We are very proud of the many awards and acknowledgements Mr. Wilmer has received throughout the years and we appreciate his hard work and dedication to Faith Family Academy. Fred Wilmer, thanks for being a part of our Family...thank you for "Being the One"!

First elected female senator

Hattie Ophelia Wyatt Caraway, a Democrat from Arkansas, becomes the first woman to be elected to the U.S. Senate. Caraway, born near Bakerville, Tennessee, had been appointed to the Senate two months earlier to fill the vacancy left by her late husband, Thaddeus Horatio Caraway. With the support of Huey Long, a powerful senator from Louisiana, Caraway was elected to the seat. In 1938, she was reelected. After failing to win renomination in 1944, she was appointed to the Federal Employees Compensation Commission by President Franklin Roosevelt.

Although she was the first freely elected female senator, Caraway was preceded in the Senate by Rebecca Latimer Felton, who was appointed in 1922 to fill a vacancy but never ran for election. Jeannette Rankin, elected to the House of Representatives as a pacifist from Montana in 1917, was the first woman to ever sit in Congress.
