With all the events of last week, I overlooked a message that I had planned to share. I want to extend my congratulations to our Football team for their run to the regional championship game. They did not win the game but not every victory can be on the field, some are behind the scenes – in the way the team conducted themselves and the enthusiasm that they generated for the program among our community. No question the team scored a huge victory on that front. Well done to all the players and the coaches for their successful year…Go Navs!


This is a reminder to families of Juniors & Seniors , the next coffee date is Friday, December 2nd at 7:45 am. Please join me and other parents for an informal chat about the academic and social aspects of our school and how we can be working to ensure we are meeting the needs of all our students.


We are fortunate to have many great clubs at our school so I am not trying to play favorites…but I want to highlight the first meeting of Cubesat in Room 125 on Monday, November 28th, during AFT. Our work has already resulted in the selection of a scientific mission for MESAT-1 and this group will continue with the analysis of this data as well as expanding their own research ideas. This is USM's 3rd annual   which introduces students to the engineering design process and promotes creativity and critical thinking skills through application in a fun and challenging experience. Each team will work with USM staff to develop, plan, execute and deliver a small satellite, capable of launching to 100,000+ ft using a high-altitude balloon in May. 


Hello Everyone! Falmouth High School Community is hosting a Charity Drive for New Mainers in partnership with Furniture Friends & Maine Needs. By December 9th, we are attempting to fill twenty grocery-sized bags full of household cleaners and personal care products for our most vulnerable Greater Portland Community families. These items would be of significant service to those who have no/limited financial resources. You may drop off your donations into the box located in the FHS Front Lobby -- or direct your gift cards to Service Learning. We will remind you weekly. Gift card ideas: Shaw's & Hannaford & Walmart & Target & Ocean State Job Lots & Reny's. 

With gratitude & Wishes for a Happy Season, Sophomore Executive Board & Service Learning
