MOTTO: Inspire with our Hearts, Lead with Humility, Soar with Pride
NO SCHOOL – THIS WEEK! Everyone have a great SPRING BREAK!
NO STUDENTS ALLOWED ON CAMPUS BEFORE 3:00PM THIS WEEK Inmates Will Be On Campus Working! CONGRATULATIONS FCS BAND & BAND DIRECTOR KARL LETSER –
YOU HAVE MADE US PROUD!!!
The FCS Band scored a “Superior” rating on March 7th at the District 2 Concert Music Performance Assessment in Chipley, Fl. In addition to their superior performance, their behavior was outstanding (to the point of strangers coming up to our chaperones, asking who we were, where we were from, & recognizing how well our students represented our school). We qualified to participate in the State Concert Festival in Niceville at the New Performing Arts Center! We will start raising money for the $325.00 entry fee when we return from spring break.
Please congratulate our band students & spread the word!
-Karl Lester, FCS Band Director
