On Friday, March 1st, Mrs. Hernandez, FC High School Counselor, accompanied a group of students to the Law Enforcement Open House that was sponsored by the Nebraska National Guard 402nd Military Police Battalion at the Readiness Center near Bennington.  There, students from around the Omaha area, learned more about Military Police Communications, Vehicles, Weapons, and Security / Movement Ops. There was also a career fair featuring several area Sheriff Departments, the Omaha Police Department, and the DEA.

March 1, 2024

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We are excited to announce Teen Night at the Blair YMCA on Friday, March 22nd! This event promises to be a fun-filled evening for our teenagers, with activities and opportunities for them to socialize in a safe and supervised environment. To make things even more convenient, we have arranged transportation to and from the event.

The event will take place from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM, with the bus departing from Fort Calhoun Jr/Sr High at 5:30 PM and returning at 9:30 PM. Please ensure that your teen arrives on time to catch the bus.

The cost of the event is free for members and $10.00 for nonmembers.  The school has graciously agreed to pay $5.00 so that the student admission to the event is only $5.00 out of pocket.  

We are also seeking volunteers to chaperone this event. If you are willing to lend a helping hand and ensure the safety and enjoyment of all attendees, please let us know. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Click here to sign your student up for this event.  If you have any questions, reach out to Jacque Fischer, 

Thank you for your support, and we look forward to seeing your teens at Teen Night!

The flyer says 6th-8th graders however, we are only taking Junior High students this year.

FC Dance Team at NDTC

Our Dance team earned a bid to Nationals at camp this past summer. This allowed them to attend the National Dance Team Competition (NDTC) in Orlando, Florida Feb. 2nd-4th. They entered into the Varsity Intermediate category for their Pom and Hip Hop dances.
For Pom, there were so many teams that they had to have prelims, semi-finals, and finals. They take half of the amount of teams to move on from each category. Our team competed in prelims Saturday night and advanced to the semi-finals Sunday morning. Unfortunately, they did not advance to finals but they did place 13th in the nation for their Pom dance. 
With it being their first year attending the NDTC, we are very impressed with the outcome. Great job Ladies!

Triennial Assessment Results

Fort Calhoun Community Schools Community members:

Our District takes pride in supporting the needs of the whole child, to ensure that all children are safe, supported, engaged, and challenged each day they come to our buildings. 

Research indicates that initiatives focused on improving aspects of students’ well-being in schools—such as addressing childhood obesity, preventing bullying, supporting students’ mental health, and restricting schools’ use of exclusionary discipline—have been found to be successful in improving student success, and academic excellence. We have assessed our wellness policy as part of the USDA requirements. Below are the results of our assessment.

Architectural Field Trip

Drafting students took a trip to BVH Architectural recently.  Students learned about many different aspects of the Industry, what type of schooling they would need to obtain a job, and the different jobs that utilize design, blueprints, and renderings. Students did a hands-on project with employees, and had to be in charge of a build, and interact with different processes within a typical design/build.
