FLVS Corkboard: March Highlights
There’s so much blossoming at FLVS as we spring forward and March toward April! (Good puns are all in good fun, right?) Here are some current activities in bloom we’d like to highlight.
FLVS Full Time Enrollment Open
Now open for grades Kindergarten-12 for the 2018-19 school year!
Students enrolled with FLVS Full Time take all their classes (a total of six online courses) following the standard school year. This tuition-free, online public school allows students the freedom to follow their own unique path to learning and build one-on-one relationships with teachers.
April is National Poetry Month
Join the NaPoWriMo Challenge!
Students grades 6-12 are welcome to participate in the National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo) Challenge which runs from April 1-30. Challenge yourself to write a poem a day or set a goal of how many poems you can write in a month. Each day, there will be a prompt posted on the Creative Writing Club blog. Utilize the prompt or feel free to create whatever poem you’d like—the choice is yours! Write, and share, as much or as little of your poetry as you’d like this month, whether it’s 1 poem or 30.
If you are interested in participating or want to learn more about our Creative Writing Club, email Mrs. Katie Emery, Creative Writing Club sponsor, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Did you know FLVS students create a Yearbook each year? This year, FLVS Flex and FLVS Full Time students are working together to complete a special FLVS 20th Anniversary yearbook. All FLVS students are welcome to submit their student portraits and senior ads to help make this book of memories the best one yet! Portraits are due by Friday, April 6.
