Dear Parents & Guardians,


I wanted to take a moment to welcome everyone to the 2015-2016 school year. It's the kind of thing one says, but the high school staff has truly been doing terrific work throughout the summer and over the past week to prepare for students. Over the years I'm reminded again and again about the great relationships that exist between our teachers and students. I believe that it's the most important component of successful any educational program and the key reason Falmouth is consistently among the very best high school anywhere, public or private.


If I had one message for our students it would be to help others when it's appropriate and you're able and ask for help whenever you need it. Please know that we stand ready to assist when things aren't going well. Don't hesitate to reach out or steer your student to an administrator, adviser, teacher, school support person, or other member of the staff when she or he feels overwhelmed or just needs a kind word or help getting through a single test, some homework, or a social situation that's difficult to manage alone.


I'm enthusiastic and looking forward to the coming year. It's an honor to work with your students. Hope to see you along the way.


Sincerely,


Gregg Palmer, Principal

FEF Fall Auction - Volunteers Needed (We’re in Event Planning Mode)!

The next opportunity to get involved in a great cause is just around the corner!  We are seeking volunteers to help with the 2015 Fall Auction (Saturday, October 24 at the Woodlands Club).  This is a fun night to catch up with friends, other Falmouth parents and community members -- all proceeds benefit a great cause (Falmouth kids!).  This year’s event will have a little twist to make it fresh and fun for new and returning guests (and our planning committee)!

We are looking for volunteers to help with activities ranging from the event invitation mailing to item solicitation, neighborhood donations, event decorations and set-up to checkout and clean-up.

If you have been thinking about getting involved (or think you might be interested), please contact Karyl Hazard for more information, including a new meeting date! (karyl_hazard@yahoo.com).
