Thanks FOHA Families!

We are winding down a great year, and it’s all because of you!  We all know that middle school isn’t the smoothest time in a child’s life (Did you love middle school when you were a kid?  Better keep that to yourself!) This isn’t the easiest time in the life of a parent either.  Our Humanities community makes this time easier, more tolerable, and sometimes even fun!  As we say goodbye to old friends and hello to new ones, please know that however much you were able to help this year, we appreciate you!  Check out our Facebook page, it has some great photos from the year and some interesting posts!
