Thank You...


The FTE staff would like to thank our FTEBC joint Spirit Night chairs, Kate McGrath and Mary Katherine Stout for the delicious luncheon from the California Pizza Kitchen.  What a special treat to kick off our FTE California Pizza Kitchen Spirit Day which was held yesterday.  A special word of thanks to all of our families who supported our Spirit Day!

Is there a FTE Staff Member You Would Like to Recognize...
