Back to School Activity Period and Food Bank Fundraiser

We will be having an Activity Period on Friday, Sept. 22, from 2:30 - 3:30. All money raised will go towards helping those who still struggle in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. We are asking for donations of non-perishable food, animal supplies (dog/cat food), and cash donations.

Just to throw in a little competitive fun, we will have a competition between grade levels. The grade level that collects the most dog/cat food will receive a surprise next week.

IT'S PICTURE DAY!! OCTOBER 3rd :-)

#SAYCHEESE!!
Every student will have their picture made on October 3rd because these pictures will be used in the 2017-2018 FJH Yearbook. Pictures will be taken during their PE period. Those students who do not have PE/Athletics will be asked to go during their electives.

We understand that every student wants to look their best on picture day but we ask that you follow the dress code rules when selecting your wardrobe.

You may go to inter-state.com/order to order your child's pictures online. There are many options to choose from such as colors, backgrounds, packages, etc. If you choose not to order prints online, you may send the order form and payment with your child on October 3rd. They will hang on to this and hand it to the photographer.
FJH Unique Order Code: 19774MF
