Today is our middle school’s first day at South Beaver! Lots of great energy in the air and gratitude all around to NAU for offering us this beautiful temporary home before we move to our permanent Gemini Campus. This would not have been possible without NAU Space Manager Valerie Barret having the vision and coordinating all the moving parts to make things happen swiftly. On behalf of FJA’s students, staff, and families, many thanks to NAU Facility Services, Fire Life Safety, Police Department, Property Surplus, CPRM (Contracts, Purchasing & Risk Management), Information Technology Services, and the university as a whole.

Today was the end of our Bonito Era. Thanks to FUSD for hosting us all these years. Not surprisingly, our students were exceptional in their attitudes and actions today. We had schoolwide matches of boom ball, student farewell songs, and student odes to the building read-aloud. Some favorites included "Ode to Mr. Irwin's Rickety Desks," "Ode to the Other Side of the Building," "Ode to the Gluestick on the Ceiling," and "Ode to the Lack of Windows (sarcasm)." Feeling thankful and ready for our fresh start!
