The FFC Flyer
By James Baggett and Adrian Tabarez
This is a new beginning for the freshman class as they start their high school careers. It is also a new beginning for the Freshman Center, as we will be moving into our new building in the Spring! The year has started smoothly, and everyone has been settling into their classes.
Our Future Nest!
By James Baggett and Adrian TabarezThere is a new class requirement for all ninth grade students called career prep. This class is taken in place of the old FMP that we had last year. Career prep is taught by our very own Mr. Sheppard! He does a great job of making it fun, engaging, and enjoyable. He provides challenges through questions and quizzes that check our understanding. This class helps us become more equipped for future job opportunities. It also helps us prepare for the real world. Way to go Mr. Sheppard!
Check out one of the lessons!
What does that say???
On August 22, our Falcons took on Hoover during the Jamboree game. Both teams showed utmost effort which resulted in a great game. Hoover tried to portray what they thought was a witty slogan, saying, "Hoover is not responsable for ruffled feathers." However, they spelled "responsible" wrong! In the end, Hoover won 27 to 6.
