FLVS Corkboard: August Highlights

FLVS CorkboardWhether you’re a student, teacher, parent, or administrator, heading back to school and starting a new school year can cause a flood of varying emotions.

How is it possible to feel excited, nervous, happy, sad, encouraged, jazzed, and anxious all at the same time?

A new school year brings new opportunities and we have some just for you!

First, welcome to reading a new segment on our blog named FLVS Corkboard. As part of our efforts to streamline school-wide communications, we decided to fold our previous stand-alone newsletter, The Pulse, into this new monthly series!

Here, we’ll offer highlights and news bits for all our students and parents on all things FLVS. Consider subscribing to The Virtual Voice to help keep you connected.

      Hey Ty. The clubs open house link will only work on September 8th at 7pm ET (while the session is active), so that may be the issue! When you join, you may need to first allow the software to install or update.
