FHS is off to a good start to the school year. We have a new administrator, Nickey Reutzel, and nine other new staff members throughout the building to welcome. All of the new staff members are doing a great job, and our students are engaged in a variety of fun learning activities.
Mrs. Robbins’ dual credit American History students researched different organizations, groups, and individuals from colonial times. Students then prepared a resume/profile for their respective topic. On the final day, students
interviewed and taught each other about the different groups and people who lived during the colonial era. Students were required to bring a prop to represent their
topic. There were many unique props from beards, to homemade hats, to a popsicle stick fort. The students had a great time learning about the early American colonies.
Mrs. Lamb’s algebra classes participated in MathLibs activities. The classes had to rotate between math expression labs where they simplified expressions to get the answer to the puzzle. The questions are in varying degrees of difficulty, and the correct answers generate a funny story at the end when all the problems have been solved. It was such a fun approach to learning, and students enjoyed reading the funny Mathlib at the end.
