Due to the Feather’s upgrade period during the end of March and April both a Male and Female student have been selected for the month of May. May’s female student of the Month is Mariana Fiske, '16', chosen by mathematics teacher, Jared Kaiser for her focus and curiosity in the materials “She is a student who knows what it means to be an Eagle,” Kaiser said. “She is always willing to help her fellow classmates and is always on task wanting to learn more.”
May’s male student of the Month is William Liao, ’16, chosen by school secretary, Michelle Warkentin for his genuine character and attention to detail. “I think William should be student of the month because lately I’ve seen him being kind to the students,” Warkentin said. “He’s always very helpful and very polite when he comes into the office and he will ask if I need any help or those sorts of things. He always wants to make sure things are very clear and so I think that he needs to be honored for those things.”
Every month The Feather will highlight one student recommended by a teacher and voted upon by Feather staff members. Students are chosen depending upon several factors including and not limited to good grades, class engagement, positive attitude and special extracurricular activities. The student of the month for March is Freshmen Roman Endicott, chosen by Spanish teacher Karen Almaraz. Almaraz says that Endicott has shown a great deal of responsibility, focus and positivity within both the classroom setting and the sport's field.

From a personal vantage point, the last few weeks on campus have been characterized by an overall air of apathy and mental, if not physical, disengagement from academics as well as school spirit and social relationships. While this pattern is not unusual, especially at the end of the year it does raise several harmful implications in the quality of academic, social and spiritual progress.
The start of this year brought about many changes to the FC campus, administration and student life. One of which was the absence of four year mathematics teacher, David Lee. Since his departure at the end of the 2013-14 school year, Lee has taken up a part time teaching position at Buchanan High School, where he previously taught for a total of 19 years. Due to an increase in free time Lee has been able to pursue his many interests and spend a greater amount of quality time with family members.
