From the Principal

December 10, 2021

Dear FMA families,

Are you happy? My challenge to you this holiday season is to find your happy place. In your mind, try to visit your happy place every day, even if only for a few minutes. Happiness is contagious! When you are happy, the people around you become happier. A Harvard study found that happy people have more fulfilling relationships and lead healthier, more productive, and longer lives. Not only do you benefit, but so does everyone else around you!
