The Digital Culture Summer Institute is for students grades seven through twelve. The cost is $350 per week (but it might be less if they get the grant they applied for - fingers crossed). DCSI is a three-week program (with one-week classes) for middle and high school students to explore topics at the intersection of media arts and engineering. Please feel free to visit the Digital Cultural Summer Institute for more information. Our January 31, 2020, newsletter also contains helpful information about the program.
We are pleased to share that Jimmy Brady is replacing Erika Phillips as the sophomore and senior counselor at FHHS. We are sad to see Erika move on, but her impact here will be felt for many years to come. Jimmy comes to FHHS from EVIT, where he served as both a counselor and a recruiter. He worked most often this year at the Four Peaks EVIT campus, and knows many of our students from their CTE courses. Jimmy is available by calling (480) 664-5522 or by email.
