Reminder from the Front Office Staff
Students should check the front office 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 eternally grateful for how its Falcon Family has demonstrated overwhelming generosity and kindness to our fellow Falcons during this holiday season. Please see photos below. Because of you, we have met and exceeded our Flora Gives goals. We were able to provide 30 Flora families with Thanksgiving Meal Boxes and 36 Flora zoned families with gifts for the holidays. Thank you and Happy Holidays to you and your family!

Update for Teaching Fellows Applications: Deadline for applications extended!
CERRA's website host experienced a glitch, which caused their website to crash. CERRA knows many students were unable to access the direct link to the Teaching Fellows application during this time. For this reason, they have extended the application deadline to 11:59 PM on Monday, December 4th. While the application will remain open through December 4th, they cannot change dates within the application. In other words, students will still see December 1st listed as the deadline within the application. Please understand that you have until 11:59 PM on December 4th to submit your application.

Engineering Students OSHA Certified
