FHC Homeroom Announcement

FHC should be a place where we can all come and feel safe, accepted and like we belong. However, what we know about the world in which we live is that bullying exists in many forms. The newest form of bullying, cyberbullying, means that anyone can not only be a target, but also be a bully. We MUST address this issue at FHC. If we want FHC to continue to be a safe place, we all must be willing to put a stop to this very serious and relevant issue.


On Wednesday, we will have our first of three homerooms to do just that. We will take time on Wednesday and again in January and finally in April, to discuss ways to eliminate bullying at FHC. Wednesday is a full day of school that ends at2:20pm. Your 7 periods will follow the normal early releases schedule. When 7th period is completed, you will report to your homeroom for our first discussion. Homeroom locations will be posted throughout the building. School will officially be dismissed at 2:20pm. Let’s do everything we can to make FHC Bully Free!”(11/16)
