LEARNING THE ROPES - Since this will be their first year as middle schoolers, FIS sixth graders were given the opportunity Thursday to visit the school and meet the faculty and staff members there. After a welcome and introduction by Nathan Castleman and Dr. R.B. Mays, FIS principal, the students were taken on a tour by eighth graders while their parents stayed in the library to ask questions of their own. Following the business at hand, Castleman led some of the students in some relay games before the entire group enjoyed a pizza dinner. The new school year officially begins Wednesday.
