FLVS Corkboard: September Highlights

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.

National Voter Registration Day

The FLVS Model UN club is celebrating democracy through action on National Voter Registration Day. The session is open to all students and will include guest speakers from non-partisan groups and provide you with important information on how you can take action in your democracy.

Join the session here on Tuesday, Sept. 25 and Thursday, Sept. 27 at 7 p.m.

National Hispanic Heritage Month

Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15 – Oct. 15) is the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. There will be a Hispanic Heritage Celebration on Wednesday, Oct. 10 from 6-8 p.m. and you can join the festivities here.

If you would like to create a 5-10-minute presentation that showcases how Hispanics have had a profound influence on culture, email Sra. Maria Campbell at mcampbell@flvs.net by Monday, Oct. 1.

      Hi Lilly! The majority of our recurring field trips and meet-ups are open to students who attend FLVS Full Time, our comprehensive public school option. These include monthly gatherings and events like grad bash, but schedules vary by grade. On the elementary level, we do offer a variety of face-to-face events! Let us know what grade and program your child is in for more info.

    Thank you for responding to my question about local meet-ups. My son is a flex student in third grade. Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated.

      Great! Flex Elementary does offer field trips in different counties, like the one we have coming up in November! While Flex don’t coordinate local meetups on a monthly basis (the way we currently do for Full Time), you might check into some local homeschool co-ops or search for groups in your area!


      Hi there! FLVS Full Time hosts more regular field trips as the student’s primary school of record. However, opportunities for FLVS Flex students to meet are occasionally available through our clubs!


      Hi there! We coordinate field trips regularly for our elementary students. If you are a middle or high school student with FLVS Flex, face-to-face opportunities are sometimes organized through our clubs and student activities. Check out our list of clubs at FLVS.net/clubs.
