    PTSA/Volunteer News

    Celebrating Educators of the Month: At a well-attended and exciting last General Meeting of the year, we celebrated our last two “Educators of the Month”: Pam Garrett and Elizabeth Kirsch. All the staff nominated this year but not selected will receive a note letting them know of their nomination. These awards may seem small, but they mean a LOT to the educators who receive them so think about the FHS staff who have touched students’ lives this year and remember to nominate them for Educator of the Month starting again next September.

    PTSA elects next year’s Board: The FHS PTSA elected its new Board at its May 10 General Meeting. The Board for next year is: President, Betsy Salter; President-Elect, Lisa Zuniga; Vice President, Jean Hansen; Treasurer, Amber Wagner; Treasurer-elect, Stephanie Roth; Secretary, Amy Dirk; Membership, Rochelle Morgan; Legislative liason, Rebecca Eaton; Communications, Beth Azar; Volunteer coordinators, Heidi McNamee and Jonell Alvi.
