FLVS Corkboard: September Highlights

By on September 25th, 2018

Ever wonder where the name September comes from? The prefix “sept” means seven. September was the seventh month in the original Roman calendar that included only ten months!

September is also National Piano Month. Celebrate by signing your high school student up for Music of the World, one of our electives that explores musical instruments and composers throughout history and provides perspective on various styles of music.

As we head into the month of October (National Pizza Month 🍕), here are a few highlights and opportunities to get involved. Continue reading

Congratulations, Graduates!

By on June 7th, 2018

This post was written by 2017-18 FLVS Full Time Senior Class President, McKenzie Underwood.

Class of 2018, we made it! After counting down the days until graduation all year, we finally crossed the finish line. There is not a single person who did not work extremely hard to get this far. All the late nights studying, the DBAs, the live lessons, the collaborations, the final exams, they were all worth it. Be proud of yourselves, you didn’t get here by mistake.

I would like to take a moment to acknowledge some of the amazing people who helped us get through the past four years of high school. Continue reading

Celebrating a Year of High School Success

By on May 24th, 2018

As the FLVS Full Time High School Principal, I am happy to report that we saw more student success in our courses this school year than ever before.

For both students and staff, the beginning of the 2017-18 school year was not quite as expected. We had a visitor named Irma that was intent on making our start anything but smooth. Irma did present us with some challenges, but our students stood tall and persevered through it all. Continue reading
