FLCN News Network

We are proud of our student run news channel, called FLCN. Every Monday through Thursday, FLCN broadcasts news to our students at 9:00 a.m. FLCN also produces a slide show that contains the announcements and activities for a particular day and/or week. This slide show plays in our cafeteria while students are eating and throughout each class. We felt sharing the announcements might be beneficial to parents. Below is a link to the slide show.
