Students Outdo Themselves During Spirit Week 2015

Spirit Week 2015 was an exciting time for everyone at Falmouth Academy. From dress-up themes to games and skits, every member of our community played, laughed and enjoyed our time as a community.

The week capped off with Artistic Expression Day, in which each class presented their own creative skit at All-School Meeting.

Seventh graders performed their own sorting ceremony, a la the book “Divergent,” with individual classmates coming to a table to be sorted into different factions of society.

The eighth grade performed a live-action version of Mario Bros., in which every class member ran a cardboard cloud, patch of grass, question-mark button or piece of goal past a running-in-place Mario, giving the impression of video game motion.

The ninth grade gave a song-and-art performance, in which a line of singers hid some sponge-painting artists from view. The group cleared at the end to reveal a banner, a stencil painting of a jubilant FA student.

Sophomores performed the outbreak of World War I as a cocktail party, with each party-goer a different country. The ensuing melee at the party was the kick-off to the war.

Juniors created an elaborate parody of the song “How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria,” in tribute to classmate Maria Barrera, whose locker apparently needs cleaning, but whose personality adds much to student life in the 11th grade.

The presentations ended with seniors paying tribute to teacher and class advisor Doug Jones, who’s embarked on a reelection campaign for selectman in the town of Falmouth. Students wore placards with his name and sang a tribute based on “Mr. Jones and Me” by the Counting Crows.

Falmouth Academy dedicates Morse Hall to its longtime champion

Morse Hall honored its namesake, Susan Morse, at a reception attended by nearly 100 friends, family members and those close to Susan throughout Falmouth.

The new meeting hall, which was opened to the students and the community in January, was named for the longtime trustee and former chair of the board, whose two-decade service to the school has helped it to grow and expand in programming and public engagement.



 

FA Students Receive A+ at Volunteer Fair

Falmouth Academy student volunteers participated in the Upper Cape Volunteer Fair on April 18, and received many compliments, according to our Admissions reps Karen Loder and Sarah Knowles. The kids stuffed bags with non-perishable food and fruit that were given to families in need, and also helped set up and tear down the fair and greet visitors as they arrived. Here Sarah is pictured with Thomas Earley, Jane Earley and Isabelle Stewart. Celie Patterson also participated.
