    In order to support the team, FCHS will be on a special schedule tomorrow. High school students will report to their 1st through 5th period classes on a regular schedule. The students will be released after 5th. There will be no 7th or 8th period for the high school students tomorrow.

    All high school students are encouraged to attend the final play-off game at Selland Arena tomorrow afternoon, beginning at 2. The entry fee is $11 for adults, $8 for students with IDs, and $8 for seniors, so come prepared. STUDENTS MUST HAVE THEIR ID CARDS.

    For the students who wish to stay at school, lunch will be during 6th period as usual. There will be teachers on campus who will conduct study hall during 7th and 8th periods. Students who stay on campus are NOT free to roam the campus. They must be in one of the classrooms with a teacher present.

    Junior high and elementary will be on a regular Friday schedule. However, all students K-12 and their families are encouraged to attend the final playoff game and ask that their teachers do not penalize them for missing class after lunch.

    Also, girls’ basketball shirts are available for only $5 from the athletic office. Students are encouraged to wear school colors.

    The drama department presents “The Babbling Brooks” by Kurtz Gordon, a play about the town gossip becoming the unsuspecting informant for her daughter’s personal neighborhood newspaper and the hilarity that ensues.

    Performances are Monday, March 8 and Friday, March 12 at 7 p.m. in Ground Zero Main. Admission is $6 for adults and $4 for Fresno Christian students (with ID) and staff.

    Please note that NO FOOD OR DRINKS are to be delivered to students in class. If food/drinks are delivered, the teachers are to have the student delivering the food bring the item(s) down to the high school office. The student delivering the food will receive discipline from the principal and the food/drinks will be kept to be picked up during the morning break, lunch or after school. This policy applies to Periods 1 through 8.

    The results of the Night of the Stars awards will be announced in the coming days.

    While a daily audio/visual news program has been a part of the FC community in the past, The Feather Online debuts a new version of FC Underground as the spring semester kicks into gear. Be sure to check out the new Feather feature each week by clicking on the FC Underground icon on the right menu bar.

    The FCS literary magazine is now accepting submissions. Pick up a submission form from Mrs. Sargent today. Work from any artistic medium (e.g. photography, poetry, short story, essay, scratcboards, etc.) will be considered. For more information, contact senior Jessa Searles.

    Three days into the new semester and the lost and found table is already full. There are about a dozen sweat jackets, a blanket, a backpack, girl’s knit sweaters and cap, and some textbooks and binders. If any student has misplaced anything, check the lost and found table in Building 6, across from the restrooms.

    Also note that, this year, the lost and found table will be cleared on a weekly basis.

    The FCS gym floor has been refinished. Please note that the gym doors to the foyer and into the gymnasium will now be locked, except for events taking place in the gym.

    All music students are required to enter and exit the music suite from the door on the east side of the building, not through the foyer.

    All P.E. and strength and conditioning students are to use the locker room doors and enter the locker rooms from the rear access doors. Students are ONLY to use the rear locker room doors when they are leaving and returning to Building 6; they are NOT to walk through the gym and leave by the front door.

    This new procedure will be enforced immediately.

    Photo slideshows are beginning on The Feather Online. Current slideshows include all sports articles. To watch the slideshow, click on the “View slideshow” link above the media section on the right side of the article. The Feather Online staff is committed to added as many photos as possible to articles. Be sure to check each article for added slideshows even after an article first appears.

    The Feather Online ( staff would appreciate those who read their articles, view pictures or watch slideshows to send feedback to the staff in the comment section at the end of the article or photo. These comments help the staff focus and improve their journalism skills.

    Lunch will be eaten in Rooms 602 and 604 instead of in the GZ Quad on days when it rains.

    CSF is sponsoring a free tutoring program for high school, junior high and elementary students. CSF members will be offering one free tutoring session per week during free time: lunch, after school or a study hall. Mat and English, of all levels, are available for tutoring. If interested, sign up in front of the high school office or contact CSF adviser Molly Sargent or Suzanna Quiring for more information.

    Beginning Monday, Sept. 21, Coach Jennifer Tatum will be facilitating a Bible study for the junior and senior girls during lunch in room 601. It’s going to be a very exciting time of growth in the Lord. Students should bring their lunches and come as quickly as possible.

    Principal Bennet has initiated a new rule for dress code. Boys are not allowed to wear baseball hats in the building at all; they may wear them outside the building only.

    Reminder: Fresno Christian students are not allowed in the Ground Zero building at any time without permission or for planned campus activities. Please especially note that the GZ cafe is not a shortcut to GZ main for Tuesday chapel. On Tuesday morning the GZ cafe is being used by another organization for their activity. Off limits applies also to the GZ bathroom facilities.

    Videos will now will be embedded into articles on The Feather. To view the videos, scroll to the bottom of an article. Current articles with video include New director pursues excellence and Quarterback refines mental game. However, due to server restrictions, they cannot be viewed on campus. The volleyball sport shorts also has a video on Jessika Searles at the bottom.

    Moms In Touch, a prayer group comprised of JH and HS moms, meets from 8 – 9 a.m. on Friday mornings in Room 204 to pray on the behalf of students. All JH and HS parents are invited to join Moms In Touch every Friday. If a couple dads show up, a Dads In Touch group will be formed.
