Spirit Week will begin Monday, January 22 and increase in excitement through Homecoming on Friday, January 26!
Each campus will be showing their school spirit with themed dress up days, pep rallies, and friendly competition! Here's what to look forward to.
Like last year, our elementary campus will be kicking off the fun with a pep rally on Tuesday afternoon followed by themed dress-up days! The class with the most participation each day will win a treat and be featured in the yearbook!
Our 7th and 8th grade students will be competing as DC Comics vs. Marvel Comics which will include hallway decor, themed dress-up days and rally game contests. The winner of Junior High Spirit Week will be announced during their super rally on Friday.
Our high school students will present "Duel of the Decades" with each class bringing to life a different decade! As is tradition, the classes will be competing in hallway decor, themed dress-up days, rallies, selling of spirit chains, posters and skits. The highly sought-after Spirit Trophy will be awarded to the class with the points on Friday after the Boys Varsity Basketball game.
And the big finale of Spirit Week is FCS Homecoming!

The FCS Players Junior High Theatre Program presented "The Old Cookie Shoppe - or - Nellie Was a Baker, 'Cause She Needed the Dough!" to classmates and family on December 15.
This old time melodrama was enjoyed by all as they cheered for Sweet Nellie O'Grady the heroine, laughed at the one-liners and the antics of the Singing, Dancing Cockroaches and booed the villain, the Evil Mortimer Whiplash!
This production was the culminating project of the junior high drama class under the direction of Mr. Paul DeMeritt with technical support from the high school members of the FCS Players and Drama Tech.
Faith Christian High School hosted the annual Holiday Classic Basketball Tournament from Nov. 30 through Dec. 2. There were a lot of memorable moments when the girls and boys varsity teams from FCHS, Esparto, Stockton Christian and New Life took to the floor in round robin play.
Perhaps the most memorable was the amazing 3/4 court buzzer beater shot that FCHS junior, Tye Morrison, made on the Thursday game to close the first half against Esparto High School. Watch the clip below captured by Brett Meyer:
Our varsity boys won that game and went on to remain undefeated against New Life and Stockton Christian, claiming the tournament championship for another year!
All tournament team medals were awarded to Tye Morrison, Justin Meyer, Zachary Rodriguez and Madison Reimers.
Our Lady Lions were recognized for their great sportsmanship and character on the court.
Thank you to our Athletic Director, Robert Rerucha, Coaches: Daugherty, Steele, Carter and Pond, FCHS Cheerleaders and the many Booster volunteers that helped make this tournament possible.
Mrs. Ritchie has introduced our students to creative ways to become immersed in literature, bringing their reading and writing to life!
Her 8th grade class completed a group project describing the transformation of characters from the classic novel, "Lord of the Flies" through illustrations, descriptions and quotations. Jack, Ralph, and Piggy were drawn as they were when they first began on the island in contrast to after they were transformed on the island.
In Mrs. Ritchie's 9th grade English class, an ELA Suspense/Narrative assignment became a writing contest with the inspiration and support of Deanna Tonn in our Library Resource Center. The class had an unveiling party to announce the winners where they were able to "meet the authors" and hear their stories. Students sipped cafe mochas and munched popcorn by the “fire” as they listened to Mrs. Ritchie read the winning stories.
First place was Ben Tonn with “Percy Holosc” a supernatural/dystopian thriller; 2nd place was Emme Hurn with a classic whodunit called “Killer Queens" - the best part was she left everyone with a cliffhanger; 3rd place was “Don’t Hang Up” by Trinity Head, a story about a prank call that turns out deadly.
