Our K4 students were “Rockin in Their Learning Shoes” at their graduation ceremony on Tuesday, May 22! They told families and friends about their school day and all the activities that happen throughout the school week. They also sang songs about their big dreams and about going to kindergarten in the fall. And when they walked down the aisle in their caps and gowns, Mrs. Saunders read what they wanted to be when they grow up.
A special thank you to the K4 Team at FA for their devotion to the students and families. We are so proud of the Class of 2031!
On Monday, May 21st we held our annual Senior Step-Up for the Class of 2019! These rising seniors met at Avalon Diner to decorate their cars and then made their debut on campus, escorted by the Senior Sponsors Brad Bales and Patti Cogburn. The whole school came out to cheer them on and show their support!
On Friday, May 18th we had our annual Senior Chapel at the Upper School! The Class of 2018 organized and planned this Chapel, with a Senior Praise Team leading our students in worship. Pedro F, a graduating senior, then spoke about how God has had a plan for him throughout his adversities. By sharing some of his story, Pedro encouraged his fellow students to trust that God has a plan for their life, whatever the obstacles.
Chapel also included two videos (created by seniors Han L, Raychel R, Alicia D, and Jade B) and the symbolic “passing of the torch.” This ceremony included the Class of 2018 lighting the candles of the Class of 2019, passing on their light and leadership to the rising seniors. The Class of 2019 then made a tunnel with their candles, celebrating the seniors as they walked through the tunnel and finished their last official event before graduation!
We know God has such good things for both the Class of 2018 and the Class of 2019, and we loved marking this transition with our annual Senior Chapel!
On Thursday, May 17th our Lions won big against Lake Highland Prep! Grayson W scored four first-half touchdowns leading FA to a 28-0 victory! In the first quarter Grayson was on the end of a Henry A touchdown pass, opening up the scoring. Later in the quarter, Grayson intercepted a pass and returned it 35 yards for a touchdown. In the second quarter, Chai C connected with Grayson on a 30-yard touchdown pass, and later in the quarter Grayson took an option pitch 18 yards for a touchdown!
Defensively, Warren S, Michael L, Cameron G, Danny S, and Andrew J put relentless heat on the quarterback and were in the backfield all night. Grayson and Matt P had interceptions, and Grayson also had a fumble recovery. Bryan T and Abner H had very strong game at safeties, making some big hits. Congratulations to all our Lions on this team victory!
