FalconFest is a powerful and transformational day, designed by Falcons for Falcons, that can change the way people view each other forever.  It is a day to break down barriers and promote understanding, acceptance, and love.  Through a variety of games, trust-building activities, and presentations, participants will be given a unique opportunity to see themselves and others with a new understanding.  The group creates a safe environment to share and see in a revolutionary way.

FalconFest is for all grade levels.  Freshman, sophomores, and students new to the school are especially encouraged to participate.  Veteran participants are encouraged to be student leaders.  Students will not be penalized for missing class for the teachers know how important FalconFest is to the community.

The goal of the FalconFest program is to increase personal power, reduce stress, promote community building and to eliminate the teasing, harassment, and alienation that can be such a deep and painful part of the high school experience for teenagers every day.  Space is limited, so complete the online form and turn in your permission slip as soon as possible!
