February Updates

Happy February!

In January, we honored the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King and learned about his contributions to Civil Rights. We also had our middle school dance and started the girls' basketball season off.

On February 9th, we will be celebrating our Principal's List and Honor Roll students from first semester with an awards assembly. Teachers will notify parents of students receiving an award.

We are thankful for our collaboration with the Festival Community and appreciate all of you who have expressed your support and partnership with the school. We always encourage anyone with questions or concerns to address them, at the source, through a conversation with school staff. This decreases rumors and misinformation and provides factual and accurate and clarity on our practices and policies. Thank you for being a positive and proactive part of the school-home partnership.

With Falcon Pride,

Ms. Naylor
