FAC Weekly Update

November 13, 2020

Good afternoon, Fine Arts Center Family

I hope you had a wonderful week. First and foremost, we'd like to thank those families that jumped at the opportunity to purchase gift cards for our Building Staff. Our crew appreciates this kind gesture more than you know!


Secondly - please be assured that our Faculty and Administration is working on creative performance and showcase opportunities for our students. We know that this school year has everyone feeling weary, and we sense the need to change things up a bit. More details to come soon, but in the meantime we ask our students to keep pushing hard - maintaining their energy and drive towards their artistic endeavors. We continue to press on through challenging times, and be believe with full confidence that we can grow and flourish through it all!


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

This Week's Student Leadership Lesson

“Author George Matthew Adams stated, “What you think means more than anything else in your life. More than what you earn, more than where you live, more than your social position, and more than what anyone else may think about you.” Every problem introduces you to yourself. It shows you how you think and what you’re made of.”


John C. Maxwell, The Maxwell Daily Reader: 365 Days of Insight to Develop the Leader Within You and Influence Those Around You

Congrats to Voice Students!

Congratulations to Juniors Hayley Glenn and Quin Robinson, and Sophomore Lexi Howard for moving on to the Regional round of the SC NATS (South Carolina Chapter of the National Association of Teachers of Singing) Musical Theatre Competition! Both Haley and Lexi won their respective categories, and Quin placed in his. Kudos to Ms. Knox and Ms. Parrini as well for coaching these fabulous musicians. Good luck at Regionals!
