Before the possibility of more snow comes our way, Floral Park Memorial High School has a great afternoon planned to start the weekend.

On February 6 at 4:00 pm, the school will be hosting a club fair for elementary students. The purpose is to show future junior high students FPM’s school spirit as well as inform them about various extracurricular clubs they may wish to join next year. Mrs. Giangrande, seventh grade guidance counselor, will make a presentation about the school and clubs. The Floral Park Memorial chamber orchestra will perform as well.

The program is being organized by Mrs. Mason, Director of Student Activities and English teacher. The focus of the afternoon is to allow these young people to learn about the clubs that Floral Park Memorial has to offer. Each club will have a display board along with volunteers who will answer any questions that the elementary students may wish to ask. It is a great opportunity for these young people to think about joining extracurricular activities and expand their future.

“Most studies indicate that students who are involved in extracurricular activities perform better academically,” said Mr. Simone, social studies teacher. “The community is so fortunate that Mrs. Mason has dedicated the time to making this event happen. She fully understands the significance of a strong extracurricular program. In her short time as Director of Student Activities, she has worked tirelessly to make Floral Park Memorial a place where all students can find a club to join.”

The club offerings meet students with a wide range of interests. At the conclusion of the presentation, students can walk over to the gymnasium and watch the biggest girls’ varsity basketball game of the year. Floral Park looks to avenge its only loss of the season when the Knights play their last regular-season home game against Division High School. The two teams are tied for first place. Spectators will see the intensity and excitement of the athletic program at Floral Park.

Hopefully, they will also have time to admire the school’s new Knight mascot and see him (or her) show off some school spirit.
