 Happy New Year!! 
Looking back at the last year there are many things to be thankful for; we are thankful to our parents for the gifts that were given to staff during the Christmas holiday.  We were blessed by the generous offerings that were given to support our Christmas bonuses-thank you! 
As we look ahead we are so grateful for what the Lord has planned for FCCA and one exciting new change is our website!!
 Tiffany Schutz is our website manager and has done a fabulous job in re-building the site. Moving ahead for this year, please refer to the website for the monthly newsletter, lunch menu, calendar and other important school announcements.  Our goal is to be responsible stewards both of our environment, and our budget. Therefore, we ask that you help us in our effort to save money in the cost of printing and refer to the website for information. Watch for our new PTF newsletter that will be added to our website. This will include minutes from our meetings, updates and announcements!
