Fort Calhoun Students Visit Autumn Pointe

“Happiness comes when your work and words are of benefit to yourself and others.”

The Freshman homeroom class continues its service to other with our 4th visit to Autumn Pointe this year. This was the first meet up in a while and the pen pals had lots to talk about. We look forward to one more visit before the end of the year to wrap up our great experience.
