Science students in A.P. biology and zoology had the unique opportunity to get up close to the animals they are studying on a trip to Project Survival's Cat Haven, May 4. Although the temperature was reaching the high 90’s, the students enjoyed the opportunity to explore nature outside of the classroom. Cat Haven is similar to a animal sanctuary, but specializes in education and the preservation of wild cats. They also help raise funds for conservation efforts to save endangered cats. The president of Project Survival’s Cat Haven, Wendy DeVos, believes it is important to save cats before they become extinct. “A lot of people come here thinking it’s just a sanctuary for abused and abandoned cats, but this place really focus on trying to help what’s happening in the wild and to help different cat species survive in the wild,” DeVos said. “We try to send money to conservations. About one third of our income we try to designate for that, that’s what I want people to know, that we have a great education program and that’s important to take care of God’s creatures.” After getting off of the bus, students were brought into a room where they were taught how to identify different animals by examining their skulls. Students were also taught how different cats used different abilities to stalk their prey or avoid being eaten by other animals.

The annual Econ Fair is one of the most anticipated events of they year. Every year Robert Foshee’s economics class holds the the Econ Fair where a variety of food and other items are sold to the students of FC. They are set up in booths that will hopefully attract students to come and buy their items. Once the event is over, the students reflect on how the event went and count up how much money they made for the item that they sold during the fair. Lots of different items are sold throughout the entirety of the Econ Fair. Food is always among the most popular option for this particular event. Students strategize to get permission to sell food because the fair is during lunch time, hence the advantage goes to the people selling the edible items. Drinks are also a favorite during this particular event. Senior Daniel Walker is prepared to sell milk shakes with his fellow senior partners Zach Passmore and Will Vander Kooi.
