SPORTSDespite all the odds against them, like not having a bus to pick them up – Congratulations to the FH team for a hard fought tie last night in their last game of the year! The team’s defense of Nicole Guzman, Mia Senick, and Sang Sang Duong did a great job keeping Broughal out of the circle, holding them scoreless for all 50 minutes!  Offensively, 8th grader Catey Kelly did her best to take multiple shots on goal with beautiful break-aways & lots of support from her teammates, they just couldn’t score. Way to stay in it & keep fighting. Coach Buchanan & Coach Maria are so very proud of all the improvement you showed this season. Great try, team!

THOUGHT OF THE DAYCervantes was a writer who lived in 16th-century Spain and wrote the famous book Don Quixote.

Now listen to what he says to us today: Tell me thy company and I will tell thee what thou art.

Thousands of years before, in another part of the world, the ancient Assyrians said it this way: Tell me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are.

Today, think about the people you choose to keep company with and ask yourself this: Do my friends bring out the best in me?  Are they kind?  Honest?  Trustworthy? 

Then remember this: Whom you choose as a friend can tell you a lot about yourself and…

if Cervantes is right… it can tell the world a lot about who you are.
