Class of 2016

It was definitely a week of celebration for the Class of 2016! This year's Best and Brightest awards found FSUS seniors walking away with honorable mention, runner up and winner in multiple categories. The students have to go through many steps to prepare for the Leon County selection process. A BIG thank you to Ms. Kinney and each of you who assisted her in preparing the students for the interview process as well as your work with the students in their subject area. Hearing FSUS student names called repeatedly (yes, I was keeping count) was so exciting...I am so proud of our students!!

A huge congratulations as well to Ms. Axtell, Ms. Steed and Mr. Strazulla on a fabulous senior banquet. The night flowed smoothly and recapped so many of the accomplishments of this senior class. Thank you to all of you who support our students through the many organizations offering scholarships. I know you work hard during the year to be able to offer students these scholarships. Thank You!!

Magnificent Musical

I hope you were able to catch this year's musical performance of Beauty and the Beast. In short-our kids ROCK! Under the direction of Ms. Meade and Ms. Gamble our students rendered a stellar performance. Way to go ladies!! A big thank you, too, to all those who assisted with music, costumes, and the program. I can't wait to see next year's show!!
