Varsity Cheer Promotes School Spirit

Fuqua’s Varsity Cheer squad has been hard at work planning activities to promote school spirit. Eight of the cheer team members joined Coach Chelsey Green to help instruct 13 young girls in the “Let’s Go Falcons” kids camp held July 20-23. Campers learned cheers along with a dance routine and made spirit tags and bows. Creative play incorporated pool noodles and other props to reinforce social distancing practices while still ensuring the kids had a great time. Coach Green remarked that the Varsity Cheer members set a great example for our young campers, adding, “I couldn’t have done it without them!” The coach also shared her squad’s plans for spreading school spirit and positivity during the upcoming academic year, regardless of altered sports schedules. They’ll be gathering soon to begin their efforts. Thank you, Falcon Cheer!

Science Spaces Refurbished

Over the spring and summer our facilities staff did a wonderful job refurbishing our Upper School science quad and laboratory. The space, available to students in multiple science courses from Biology and Chemistry to Honors Physics and Zoology, received quite the overhaul. After an extensive cleaning and organizing effort, the lab and the adjacent classroom had new flooring installed. Then overhead LED lighting was added to the lab, and both rooms painted. Thanks to our hard-working staff members, now the Upper School science department is ready to welcome back our students to show off the new look!
