After a restful summer vacation, students and teachers returned to the FNS at the beginning of September, 2019. Through the first week, there were a variety of special events and activities, with an emphasis on team-building and culture building. With many new students, it was an excellent opportunity to build new friendships!
On Monday, the school day began with a welcoming ceremony for new teachers and new students. School expectations were reviewed with all students.
Throughout the rest of the week, the FNS had special team-building activities. On Tuesday afternoon, all students gathered in their FNS House (named after the four houses of Harry Potter!) and played mini-games to learn everyone’s name.
On Thursday, all students gathered once again in their House teams, and participated in a school-wide bridge design competition. Teams were tasked with creating the longest, tallest, or strongest bridges, with winning teams receiving House Points!
It was a great first week!
