FRHS hosts college fair…

On Wednesday, October 4, our students had the opportunity to meet with representatives of more than 75-colleges and technical schools at our annual college fair. The fair, which included a luncheon in the school cafeteria, utilized both the boys’ and girls’ gymnasiums from 11:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Attendees were able to collect solid, up-to-date information about schools throughout the northeastern United States. Among the diverse institutions present were many of the branches of CUNY (the City University of New York, including Brooklyn and Queens colleges, Lehman College, The Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education, York College, Queensborough, Kingsborough and Borough of Manhattan Community Colleges, and others), SUNY (the State University of New York, including Buffalo, Oneonta, Oswego, Potsdam and Plattsburg), Niagara University, the Universities of Scranton (PA) and Bridgeport (CT), the U.S. Army and Air Force and Yale University.

Students from both the 11th and 12th grades participated in the fair along with a sizable number of interested parents.

Open House attracts eighth-graders and parents…

On Wednesday evening enthusiastic eighth-grade students from private and parochial as well as public schools came to our Second Annual Open House, held between 6:00 and 8:00 p.m. Tours of the school were conducted by FRHS seniors, who answered questions from potential enrollees as they were shown many of our school’s features, such as b-team sports, the law and health careers programs, our Internet-connected computer laboratories, and our brand new Virtual Enterprise classroom.

The Open House was part of Principal Thomas Cunningham’s ongoing attempt to recruit high quality, interested students for our future classes.
