FAS Completes Successful Fall Season

Congratulations to the Franco American School cross country and soccer teams for a wonderful fall season! 

The soccer team placed second in the EAA this season, falling to Innovation Academy in the championship game.  Season highlights include a huge season-opening 9-1 win over Sainte Jeanne d'Arc School, a big 6-2 victory over the Academy of Notre Dame, and a 6-1 defeat of Saint Margaret School.

Meanwhile, several members of the cross country team competed alongside the best runners from the league's nine schools at the EAA's LeBlanc Invitational.  Sixth grader Caitlin Tully was Franco American's top performer, placing 6th overall with a time of 14:04 on the 1.9-mile course.

Cheering for the boys...

FAS completed another fun-filled summer program, as students attended live shows, visited the beach and local playgrounds, went bowling, mini golfed, baked, and even completed their summer reading and math requirements.  Coordinated by third-grade teacher Lillian Bernier, the eight-week program was attended by 27 FAS students enrolled in prekindergarten through grade 5.  Check out some of last summer's fun in the slideshow below!
