  2.  Opening Ceremony/ Cheerleading Performance – we will have an opening ceremony at 12:40 followed by out wonderful FH Sparks Cheerleading performance. Would love for you to come out and cheer the Sparks on. The will also be cheering out athletes on throughout the day.
  3. FHC Stuco Olympic Village – Located in the FHC band room (right outside of the large gym and trophy cases) They will have activities and games for athletes.

by fhso

Just wanted to share some information! Our basketball tournament is Dec 11th this year and there will also be a transition fair going on at the same time in the cafe put on by the Francis Howell School District. If you have questions about either – please reach out.. Eddie Mulholland 636-851-5115 edmund.mulholland@fhsdschools.org

The Francis Howell School District’s Alternative Learning Department is excited to sponsor the 2021 Community Resource Fair on Saturday, December 11. Once again, the Resource Fair will take place alongside the Francis Howell Special Olympics Annual Basketball Tournament. The tournament has been a significant success in attracting hundreds of participants and spectators. Combining the Community Resource Fair and Special Olympics competition will allow individuals to connect with our community’s resources.

The Resource Fair has been an ongoing tradition of our district for almost a decade, intending to connect and educate as many individuals to available resources. The event has averaged over 40 vendors dedicated to serving people of all ages and specializing in recreation/leisure, mental health, behavior supports, post-secondary transition, and much more in the past years. Please share the attached flyer with staff, students, parents, and anyone else who may benefit.

I hope we find everyone doing well. Very excited to let everyone know we are going to start practices for Basketball soon!!

First thing we want to do is find out who all is interested in playing this year. Below is google form that we ask you to fill out before Nov 1st. SOONER THE BETTER THOUGH. This is going to help us figure out how much space we need and how many teams we will have this year. If you fill out after Nov 1st we can not guarantee competition

Practice will be on Tuesday nights starting November 9th through March.
Where – Seager Middle
Time – TBD but between 5:45-8


Note from Special Olympics on Restrictions – The basketball plan is that masks are worn off the court and in the facility but can be removed during play. If there is room to adequately social distance, the mask may also be removed in the facility. So, coaches may be able to space bench chairs at events so that masks would not be required on the bench. Spectators would mask unless there is adequate social distancing.

If you have any questions please reach out to Eddie Mulholland edmund.mulholland@fhsdschools.org or 636-851-5115

NEW Sport Opportunity **Powerlifting**

Our plan is too start practice late January or early Feburary, but would like those who are interested to fill out the following google form to get more information. Please fill out the google from by next November 1st. Starting Powerlifting does have some upfront cost because of the required uniform for competition. You are required to wear a singlet for competition. We would like to get those purchased prior to starting practice.
