Since Monday was officially a full month of quarantine and our school was supposed to go back on April 13, I have been disappointed. I did enjoy my month off, kind of like Christmas break, but it is starting to get old. I know we have summer break which is much longer, but I am participating in basketball and planning on seeing friends often. I am very thankful that I am a junior and not a senior though; things like their last formal and senior trip can be highlights of their high school year and they do not get to participate in them.
Dear Editor: Just WOW! Newsies was amazing! The campus drama department presented Newsies, The Broadway Musical, Feb. 27-29. I am proud to be “Pop” to David Tuck, who played the role of Pulitzer in last week’s production of Fresno Christian's Newsies, The Broadway Musical. My wife and I saw the show [...]
One of the great things about Fresno Christian is the ability to play multiple sports. One thing new to FC athletics is having students play two sports in the same season.
As I learned more about the amazing achievements of The Feather, I felt like a child on Christmas morning. The Feather felt like a gift to Ethan and therefore to me. As a junior, he is currently taking two Feather classes that are teaching him, in a most excellent way, how to make films. All this while still in high school?
Mr. (Terry) Richards is one of my favorite teachers from childhood. I greatly respect and appreciate his approach to teaching. My memories are that he was kind often, disciplined in love when necessary, instructed in faith and allowed his love for Jesus to permeate his actions.
Dear Editor: After spending six years with director Susan Ainley in the choral department, I have learned and grown so much. I am so thankful for all the ways she has been there for me, believed in me, and cheered me on. Even though all the time and effort she puts in may go unnoticed by others, she has made such a difference in my life.

During my 8th grade year in junior high choir, Mrs. Ainley gave me a solo for the Christmas concert. The solo was particularly hard for me since I have stage fright and I couldn’t get the right note on a certain part. I completely failed during the performance and barely squeaked out the notes.
Dear Editor: Women’s ensemble, Bellezza, has a packed Christmas concert itinerary. Their most recent choral experience was participating in the Westmont Invitational Choral Festival in Santa Barbara, CA, Oct. 27. The group received high marks from Steve Hodson, professor of conducting and piano studies at Westmont.
The FC homecoming experience is terribly difficult to describe due to the amount of things that go on with the floats and also with being on the court. But one thing is for sure, this homecoming week will never be forgotten.
Dear Editor: Fresno Christian Ladies ensemble, Bellezza, has returned from a glorious trip to New York City where they sang as part of the National Youth Choir at Carnegie Hall. The Ensemble earned this award by winning a gold rating at a Heritage Festival in Anaheim last year. Learning repertoire and joining with other choirs [...]
Thank you so much for everything you did last week to promote and encourage our school community in the area of journalism, communications, and specifically the ways that The Feather serves our school.
