    Extracurriculars: There's at least one club out there for everybody as well as athletic teams and drama productions. Involvement is highly encouraged and is the best way to become at home at FMHS. With a little effort and determination even clubs with auditions are easy enough to join. I was a member of the following clubs: Chamber Choir, National Art Honor Society, National Honor Society, and Rho Kappa (Social Studies Honor Society). I had friends in Interact, Key Club, Math Team, Basketball, Track and Cross Country, Dance Team, Marching Band, Drama, and even a cooking club. There is something for everyone to enjoy.

    Extracurriculars: Most of the teachers sponsor a club, this shows how many clubs there are. There is definitely something for everyone to do after school.
