    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.

    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.

    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.
