- As we move out of the pandemic phase of Covid and into learning how to live with a more sense of normalcy, we would like Nurse Barrant to return to a more realistic schedule of managing care for our students. Nurse Barrant will respond to questions, concerns, and emails during regular school hours.
- MS Drama Team elective is putting on a special play this year. The show will be on May 25th and 26th at 7pm in the FBC Sanctuary. This a free production and we are so thrilled that we can bring back our drama performances this year!
- Drop Dead, Juliet! "Romeo and Juliet" will never be the same. When Juliet takes over the show, the rest of the cast scrambles to find their place in her new story. Shakespeare struggles to regain the script while Romeo leans towards leaving love. Come for a tragic comedy performed by the middle school drama team!
- Congratulations to the 5th grade reading enrichment students! They entered their poems into the Creative Communications Spring Poetry Contest and received an invitation to have their poems published in an anthology of poems. Thousands of entries nationwide are judged. Every one of these Forcey 5th graders’ poems was determined to be of high merit worthy of publishing. This is quite an achievement. Congratulations to these published authors: Akin Alade, Siennie Assegid, Carter Baker, Olivia Chew, Pablo Dominguez, Sophie Nganga, Eden Tang, Rebekah Tewodros, Ally Wong, and Bella Yousaf! A big shout out to Mrs. Loys for her dedication to our enrichment program here at FCS!

After the death of Moses, God anointed Joshua to take over leading His people. This was big step for Joshua, and I’m sure he had doubts and fears. God assured Joshua that He would be with him, guiding him and going before him. Joshua 1:5 states that no one would be able to stand against Joshua because of his anointing. What a comfort to know that the same God who was with Joshua is with us today!
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” ~Joshua 1:9
Have a great weekend!
