Our Kickoff on Feb 8 will get us focused on the fun while teaching our students a few minutes each day leading up to the event about different ways to build character and by emphasizing several points on FCPS’s Portrait of a Graduate.  They’ll learn about teamwork, caring for others, courage, grit, and determination!  It all ends with a school-wide, high-spirited dance workout on Feb 18!
