March FYI Newsletter
Director’s Message: As winter turns to spring and the weather begins to warm up, come in to the Youth Center and enjoy some games in the AC or take advantage of the nice weather and play some basketball outside. With the weather turning warmer, it is also a reminder that summer is right around the corner and with summer comes the FCYC Summer Camp! Registration is taking place now and is open to the first 60 applicants! SWAT will meet on Thursday March 5th. On Thursday, March 12, the youth center will be open from 6-9 pm for any student wishing to come hang out with the Flagler Youth Coalition for Natural High. Remember, spring break will be March 16th - 20th and the Youth Center will be closed. There is also a teacher workday on Friday March 13th and the Youth Center will be closed that day as well. With spring comes two of America’s favorite pastimes; Baseball and Testing! With testing season upon us, I would like to wish all the students in Flagler County good luck on all their upcoming state and district tests!
