The Frenship Council of PTAs hosted their annual Spring Awards Luncheon – Let Your Imagination Fly at the Casey Administration Building to honor students, teachers, administrators and volunteers for their dedication to education.

Twenty-two students were recognized at the luncheon today for their artistic abilities:

The Frenship PTA Council also awarded 12 scholarships to FHS seniors totaling $5,250 for their pursuits in higher education. This was the largest contribution the PTA Council has awarded to date. Educators from each campus were recognized for going the extra mile for their students through various awards at the luncheon, 2015-16 retirees were honored for their years of service to the District and the Outstanding PTA of the Year was awarded to Westwind Elementary.
