What does it mean to be a Fischer Falcon?
Our school motto is : "AFOOFA"
All for One and One For All!
The core meaning of AFOOFA is the idea that we all have a responsibility to take care of one another. AFOOFA consists of four parts: “The Spirit of Belonging”, “The Spirit of Independence”, “The Spirit of Generosity” and “The Spirit of Mastery”.
We want all students to understand that we are a community and we all have a responsibility to take care of one another. Each quarter, we kick off the theme, and acknowledge students who earn AFOOFA awards.
All Falcons are a part of a team.
All students are placed onto a Core team of teachers, (6-0, 6-1). With students on teams, it makes a bigger school feel smaller with team spirit & pride.
Teams increase better communication with parents, teachers, and students.
Teams have a balance of students from feeder schools. Balance of students in need of support. Heterogeneously grouped (exceptions with Accelerated Math and Project Arrow Courses)
