No Civics class meeting in November. Keep an eye out for more information on our Civics class in December with elected officials and perhaps a very special guest! It will be a time to thank God for another great year of learning at FEAST and to talk and share about ways we can be productive citizens. We must BE the difference. In November, we had an amazing class with Col. West and we must build on this. See everyone on the 9th.
