"We will open the book. Its pages are blank.
We are going to put words on them ourselves.
The book is called Opportunity and its
first chapter begins' the day we start.
- Edith Lovejoy Pierce

Semester II has arrived! It is a great time to begin with refreshed or renewed habits or for those content with their achievements to keep on going and staying the course. No matter where you find yourself, it is important to take time to purposefully reflect and be aware of your goals.

FFCA, as a charter high school, maintains distinct programming features to support student success. At FFCA this looks like students learning in Character and Leadership classes and in Physical Education in grades 9-12, and by having full school days. Also, teachers work with students to ensure appropriate course recommendations with a focus on success and suitable challenge. Before we reach Spring Break our course recommendation process will be underway and this is a valuable opportunity for family conversations around areas of interest, skills to be fine tuned and future aspirations. Not only will be working with our current students but we will also continue to welcome next year's grade 9 students. The middle school grade 8 students will attend high school for most of February 8 for a day of welcome activities planned by high school staff and an information session will be hosted for grade 8 parents on Feb 7 at 7 PM.

Looking forward to a strong beginning to semester 2 and wishing everyone well!
