A heartfelt thank you to Tim Joyce and the whole team at Flagstaff Family Food Center! FFFC has been preparing and delivering free student lunches to both FJA campuses this entire school year.

If you're looking for a way to give back, FFFC has volunteer shifts open/unfilled almost every single day. Help once a week or just help once...it all makes a difference! Go to www.hotfood.org to learn more.

Thanks to our amazing families for their thoughtfulness this past week during Teacher Appreciation Week. And a special thank you to our PTG--especially Brenda Kania-Neeley, Jill Sokol, Jennifer Mast, and Jill Knuth--for seeking out donations and giving their time to make sure every single FJA staff member was remembered last week. From the homemade goodies to the catered lunch to the gift cards, we were all truly spoiled--and loved it!
