A Message from the Principal

As of this week, every one of our Fall sports has begun. We have over 500 students participating in a fall sport as of this week. We hope that every student at FHS gets involved in two or more sports or activities over their time in high school. Research suggests that students who participate have higher grade point averages and are more connected to school. Stay tuned to future newsletters and the in-school announcements for more activity opportunities as we begin the year.

We look forward to seeing our students in competition!

Go Sabers!

Mr. Vuolo
