Dear Falcon Families,

Good luck to our Winter Sports athletes whose playoff season begins this week. The playoff schedules and results will be posted on our athletic website at so you can go there for the latest updates.

Congratulations to our AFJROTC students from the CA-935 “Terabyte Falcons” who are heading to the AFA CyperPatriot Nationals in Bethesda, MD from March 15th - 19th. The students going to Nationals are Veer Chopra, Aarav Maheshwari, Delbert Tran, Sara Abhyankar, Rithvik Manikandan, and Audrey Li. We wish them the best of luck in competing to win another National Championship! 

The weather is looking better this week (at least as I type this) with no rain projected for the next 5 days. Hopefully you were able to stay safe in the midst of the past several storms.

The Falcon Playhouse Presents Big Fish - Reminder

This year the Falcon Playhouse plans to entice viewers with stories beyond their wildest dreams from the weekends of February 29th to March 2nd and March 7th to March 9th. Big Fish the musical tells the story of a man, Edward Bloom, and how his imagination has shaped and continues to affect his relationships with others. On his deathbed, Edward Bloom comes face to face with reality, but he never fails to let go of his inspiring tales. Edward and his son, Will, share a complicated relationship that is shoved to the forefront of the musical. Despite the conflict, Big Fish ends on a heartwarming note, giving homage to fatherhood, and displaying the beauty within Edwards narratives. Big Fish will elevate the Falcon Playhouse and convey the importance of storytelling, which is vital to actors and technicians everywhere.

That’s all for today. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
