NEW - Volunteer Hours Now in Naviance

Starting in the 2014-15 school year, students will now track, electronically,  all their volunteer/service hours in their FHPS student Naviance account.  High school staff will no longer be tracking student volunteer hours for the purpose of bestowing awards on graduates in recognition of total hours reported.

Teaching and Counseling staff support focusing on the quality and commitment to service learning and not simply the overall time spent.  This change in the collection and tracking of student volunteer hours reflects this philosophy.  Students will be counseled on recording their volunteer experiences in their journals and resumes through Naviance and elsewhere.

Attention Junior Parents: Important Senior Information

Attention junior parents:
Counselors are meeting with juniors today to go over important information regarding the college admission process and tasks that may be completed over the summer. We will meet with seniors again during Orientation in the fall to reiterate this information to help support students regarding this process.
We are sending home a folder with valuable information. Please review the packet with your student as it will include all of the necessary information to make this a seamless process.

Thank you,
FHN Counselors

You can reference everything anytime at FHNSports.com/golfouting.

Over the past 3 years the FHN Sports Golf Outing has raised over $40,000 for our teams and student athletes. We can only do that with help and involvement of our entire community.
GOLF :: We start with lunch from Vitales of Comstock Park. Then four-person teams (scramble format with fun games!), dinner, and prizes. You can register for golf online right here. The prices are the same as last year, $100 per golfer. You can sign up as a team, or individually.

DINNER ONLY :: If you would like to join us for dinner only, please sign up here. Dinner only is just $25 per person.

Hole signs are $150 and you can designate what sports team you would like your donation to applied too; whether it be golf, football, baseball etc.  And notice that when you sign up you can also support as many sports teams that you would like.

SOMETHING NEW :: This year our “HOLE IN ONE” program will be sponsored by FOX MOTORS and DELTA IMPORTS for your chance to  win a two year lease on the all-new 2015 AUDI A3.

We are very fortunate at FHN to offer so many athletic choices for our kids. And as budgets tighten, we want to make sure we keep all sports opportunities at FHN. Our sports aid our community togetherness, and certainly helps grow our children into problem-solving, team-building, getting-involved types of people
