Dear Freeport High School Families,
If you can believe it, we are just about half way through the 2016-2017 school year. Second Semester begins on Monday, January 23 rd after the completion of mid-term exams. As always, FHS has been full of many great events and accomplishments. Our winter sports teams are in full swing and our athletes are making FHS proud with their efforts both in competitions and in the classroom. Our students involved in the performing arts are gearing up for the One Act competition and we know that the FHS drama cast and crew will once again shine in this competition. Our visual art students continue to excel in their creations that are displayed at school (check out the work in the upper FPAC lobby if you visit FHS!) as well as in some local competitions. Many of our club members are working on various projects to benefit the school and the community, such as community service events. Our staff continues to work tirelessly to support our students and help them reach high levels of success. Last, but certainly not least is that we are thrilled to have the new addition to FHS open and in full operation. Students and staff love the new facilities, such as the updated classrooms, the new cafeteria, the fitness center and some cool new furniture in the hallways of the new wing. We are so grateful that our community has supported us in making this renovation come to life.
