Author visit, Erin Yun

We were so excited to have debut author Erin Yun speak to our fourth through eighth-grade classes today. Erin shared with us how to adapt a classic story (Pippa Park Raises Her Game is her take on Great Expectations), how to find inspiration in real life to create authentic characters, and how to develop a character's point of view. After Erin's presentation, one of our students remarked, "I am inspired to write my own graphic novel based on a classic story."

Movie Night

We were excited to debut our new sound and projection system for a double feature movie night this past Saturday in the Gym. Families cozied up on blankets to enjoy Toy Story 4 and Lego Movie 2. The sound system was made possible through a bequest by a former FSH student from the class of 1940, Adele Hunter Hepburn. We are grateful to Adele and the Hunter Hepburn family for their generosity. We look forward to hearing our students through the new sound system at the middle school play and the Celebration of the Arts concert.
