Falcon Band & Orchestra concert — Thursday, November 30th @ 1:30pm:  You are invited to hear the FCA gymnasium filled with the sounds of musical progress as the students from our advanced band and advanced strings classes present the pieces they have investigated so far this year. Come to our annual Fall Concert to be an encouragement to our developing musicians and be amazed at the progress in musicianship that this ensemble has made even over the impressive achievements of last year.

Sophomore Dress Down:  The sophomore class is sponsoring a DRESS DOWN and BAKE SALE on Wednesday, November 29th. Dress Down is $1 and the baked goods will vary in price .50 – $1.

Falcon Spaghetti Dinner: Come out on December 5th from 6PM to 8PM to support the Boys & Girls Falcon Basketball teams. Cost is $7 per person and includes a salad, piece of bread, and drink.

Christmas Concert: On Monday, December 11th, at 7:00pm, FCA will present “The Christmas County Spelling Bee” at Westview Baptist Church, 301 S. Louisiana Avenue, Martinsburg. Parents should have their children at the church by 6:30. Participants include students in pre-K through 5th-grades, the MS/HS choir, and the HS drama class. Requested attire is “Sunday-Best” attire with a Christmas flair (think of what you would dress them in for formal holiday family portraits).

Christmas Love Offering: We will be collecting a Christmas Love Offering at our concerts over the next two weeks. This money is given to our faculty and staff as a Christmas bonus every year.  There will be a collection taken up at both concerts or you may send a check in to the office marked “Concert Offering”.  Thank you to Ms. Mann and Mr. Crawford for all of your hard work putting together the concerts.

Potential Make-Up Days:  December 21st  will be used as a snow make up day if there are any snow days between now and December 20th.

Cold Weather Reminder: As cold weather approaches, please make sure that your elementary student wears a warm jacket to school.  A sweatshirt or sweater is no longer sufficient for keeping warm at recess.

Faith Spirit Shop:  Don’t forget to order your Falcon apparel!  You can order your Falcon apparel from our website.  A portion of the money comes back to our school!  Visit us at faithchristianacademy.net to place your order.

High School Exams:  December 18th – December 20th.  These days are half days for the high school students only.

Alumni Games: December 21st at 8:30PM in the FCA Gymnasium.  Remind your alumni to come out and secure their position on the court.  RSVP to Coach Hobbs 304-263-0011 or email him brian.hobbs@faithchristianacademy.net.

Do you know about our Community Helper Program?  Each class at FCA partners with a non-profit organization to complete two community projects during the school year.  Typically classes will do one in the fall and one in the spring.  We feel it is important for students to give back to the community that they live in.
