Concert Thank you:  Thank you for your generous donations at the Christmas Concert.  If you were not able to attend, but would still like to give you may send a check into the office this week just note “love offering” in the memo.  

Recycle Program:  Congratulations to the elementary team!  They won the challenge this month for the soft plastic bag recycle challenge.  In the month of November they were able to collect 147 pounds of plastic bags.  This is amazing!  Remember this is a monthly challenge through April of 2019.  Let’s see if we can exceed the 147 pounds for December!

Congratulations to our FCA Interact Club:  They received the Rotary International Presidential Citation for their service in the community this year.

Dress Down Bake Sale: The Freshman class will be sponsoring the monthly dress down day & bake sale on Wednesday, December 12. Dress down privileges can be purchased for $1. Baked goods will be offered at lunch for $1. The freshman thank you for your support.

Alumni Night at FCA:  Our Girls Varsity Basketball team is taking pre-orders for Mrs. Sherry Kerns Famous Orange Glazed Stuffed Pork Chops! They will be selling meals for $8.  The meal includes pork chops, mashed potatoes, green beans, and a roll. You can pre-order your meal and pick them up at dismissal (3:30) on December 14th.  We will also be selling a limited amount of these meals at the Alumni games (December 14th) that evening. Make sure you place your order on the attached link.

Orders need to be in by Wednesday, December 12th.

The proceeds from the meal will be benefiting the girls varsity basketball team.

Reminder Christmas Concert: Please make plans to join us on Monday, December 3rd, at 7:00pm at Airborne Church, 172 Creative Place, Martinsburg, WV 25401. Student performers should arrive by 6:45. Although previously announced the requested attire of “Sunday Best”, we want the students to look good, it’s also important that they be comfortable and that they have full range of motion. Tennis shoes, khakis, and a Christmas-colored sweater may help your student perform more easily than a fancy dress with uncomfortable dress shoes. We are trusting parents to make the best clothing choice for their children; either is acceptable.

At the concert, you’ll be given an opportunity to participate in our Christmas Love Offering. This offering is used to give our faculty and staff a nice Christmas bonus.

Falcon Apparel for Christmas:  If you have Falcon apparel on your list you can place an order by December 5th and have it here for Christmas.  Our apparel company will have items delivered by December 20th. Please be sure to mark on your order form if it is a gift for Christmas and we will hold it for you here in the office to pick up. Click here to place your order.  If you have any questions or concerns feel free to call or email 304-263-0011.
