Grandparents' Day 2019

December 05, 2019
By Faith Christian School

It was an honor to have FCS grandparents join us in November on both campuses.

See photo albums from the events on our FCS Facebook Page: Click here!

Our secondary campus welcomed grandparents to share in a special chapel service together.  Student-lead worship opened the program followed by guest speaker, Ray Wisner, an FCS grandparent and former teacher.

The FCS Players presented a synopsis of Act 2 from their fall production of "Our Miss Brooks."  Watch from our FCS YouTube channel.

On our elementary campus, grandparents joined our elementary students in the sanctuary of Calvary Christian Center for a fun, musical program before visiting the classrooms.  Students recited scripture, played instruments and sang special songs like the fan favorite, "Gramma's House" (click here to see the video)!

We played a surprise interactive game called, "That's My Grandkid!" where unsuspecting grandparents got to guess what their grandchild said about them!  It was full of laughs and silliness and heartfelt memories too! Thank you to all who played along! 

Thank you to everyone who joined us.  It is always a special time when grandparents come to visit!

 

Williams Found Guilty in Cross-Curricular Project!

November 25, 2019
By Mrs. Steffany Ritchie, ELA Teacher

After collaborating for several weeks on a cross-curricular project, Mr. Wickline’s Civics class and Mrs. Ritchie’s American Literature/ENG III Class held a mock trial. 

The ELA class was reading and learning about the play The Crucible by Arthur Miller, which is based on the Salem Witch Trials of the 1600’s.  At the same time, the Civics class was learning about the court system, so the two classes combined on the project and held a mock trial. 

The students were tasked with finding out who was truly to blame for all of the hangings in Salem during that dark time in history.  There was a prosecution team, a defense team, 6 jurors, a court sketch artist, court reporter, and several witnesses. Students applied what they had read to personate the Crucible characters and their individual stories, asking or answering interrogating questions about the events in Salem.

The judge role was played by guest (FCS parent) Cameron King, a deputy district attorney with Sutter County, who provided expertise during the trial, due to his real-life role as a prosecuting attorney.  The trial concluded with Abigail Williams being found guilty of murder.    

 

Celebrating the Drama, and Laughing All the Way

November 18, 2019
By Mrs. Kjerstin Ciociola, Drama Teacher

On the first day of class, I asked my students one question: “What is your favorite memory in a play or production?” One by one, they told stories about shows that went awry - misspoken lines, costume malfunctions, and technical mishaps. 

I began hunting down a play that would celebrate the truth all actors everywhere know—the true “drama” is not the polished production the audience comes to see, but rather the process of putting the production together.  There—now that is drama!

“Our Miss Brooks” began as a radio broadcast in the 1940s, and as household televisions grew in popularity, it became one of the first comedy sitcom hits.  In this play, Miss Brooks’ attempt to direct a “simple” school play, while navigating romance, jealous rivals, and an overbearing boss, turns disastrous quickly.  As she attempts to untangle herself from the misunderstandings and calamities, she might just find that the miracles she was looking for happened— not in the perfectly executed play—but in the messy process.

We were not exempt from unforeseen obstacles, but the FCS players experienced miraculous surprises!  A lead role unexpectedly vacated, was filled by an actor two states away who played the role in High School.  Sallee McCleskey, Michelle Baker, and Jeannine Friemark created “Cherry on Top Soda Shop” complete with FCS “Soda Jerks” and retro wear!  Mat and Shellee Coggins baked 20 unforgettable pies that had people lining up an hour before show time! 

So many parent volunteers stepped up to help with costumes, promotions and even feeding our cast!  (Thank you, Stephanie Helms!)

Laughing audiences packed out the house for three nights and widely praised the production never knowing that almost 70% of our cast and crew were brand new to the drama scene.  It will be our little secret. 

Stay tuned for more FCS Players information regarding upcoming events and performances!

A full photo collection of the show is available to purchase from the Yearbook team in the FCHS office!
