HSC Recognizing the soldiers & families
Remembrance Day is approaching. We have begun planning our service for that day and want to recognize the soldiers and families of FFCA High School relation that have protected our rights and freedoms as well as countless others. To show how widespread the effects of war can be even when not fought in our home country, we would like to personalize this service for our students with a slide show of this information. We are asking for your help with this, and so if you have a family member, past or present, that has served their country, please send us information about them.
We are asking for their name, rank and where they served along with their current status. i.e.: active, retired, deceased and so forth. Please include the relationship to the students at the school. If you wish, you may include a digital/scanned copy of a photo. An example would look like this:
Captain Claire Evans - retired - Uncle, Canadian Air Force (piloting Lancaster bombers WW2)
Merle Evans - retired - Uncle, Canadian Navy (served on the destroyer Cayuga)
Please e-mail the information to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, October 27. Unfortunately, late submissions will not be accepted. If you have a question/suggestion
please contact Mrs. Susan Boyd at email@example.com.
FFCA High School Casino
The next FFCA High School casino will be on Saturday, December 9, and Sunday, December 10, 2017 at Deerfoot Inn & Casino.
The casino is the greatest source of funds raised at FFCA High School. At our last casino, in February 2016, we raised $70,000! Funds have been used to purchase: spin bikes, a shot clock, a portable PA system, X-country ski equipment, two sets of 30 Chromebooks, as well as four scholarships for qualifying graduates.
We wouldn’t be able to do it, however, without our volunteers: parents, grandparents, friends, staff, and former students. If you are 18+ years old, you can volunteer. No experience is necessary and training is provided. You will have fun, enjoy a complimentary meal, and contribute 9 hours of volunteer time while helping to raise necessary funds.
Daytime shifts are from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm.
Evening shifts are from 7:00 pm to 3:45 am.
Count room shifts are from 10:00 pm to 4:00 am.
Interested? Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to learn about the different volunteer positions available.
