Every FHC student or employee is sure to be familiar with the hall. However, what lies behind the scenes remains a mystery to a large majority of students, and even some teachers and staff.
Perhaps one of the most intriguing features backstage is the fashion loft. Accessible only by a steep staircase nearly 20 feet high and ascending a wall, it is home to the Spotlight Player’s collection of dresses, suits, shoes, and accessories used to dress the actors.
Elaina Rainwater, junior and Costumes Crew Head in Spotlight Player’s latest production, “Emma! A Pop Musical,” has spent so much time in the costume loft that she has led her crew this semester.
“There are some fairy lights in there…and a little mirror and a place to try on jewelry,” Rainwater said. “do you see [the loft] And it’s like a little time capsule of fashion memories specifically, that’s really my pleasure to be a part of [Costumes Crew]. ”

Now home to broadcast equipment, photography backdrops, and a snack cabinet or “snocker” for publication editors, the 139 backroom has an interesting history. Upon our school’s birth, it served as a space for photographers to develop a film of the events they had photographed.
“When I started here in 2005, digital photojournalism students shot their images on film and then developed them in a darkroom,” said Mr. Matthew Schutt, FHC Publications Consultant. “Some of the students loved the experience, but every semester there were always a few students who were stuck in complete black because they couldn’t load their film into a development tank from the film roll. They always came out in a stunned state as soon as they got On them after about 30 minutes or so in complete darkness.”
Room 1 has served many purposes over the years. For a long time, it was just a conference room. But when you walk through it now, you’ll find the door always open to reveal a dimly lit room full of bean bags, gadgets, and quiet décor. The space has now been completely transformed and is now dedicated to giving students with high levels of anxiety and stress a safe place to relax and cope – to help them thrive.
Mrs. Kalinda Dixon, The Behavior Support Specialist, is responsible for the Thrive Room and assisting the students who use it and has seen first-hand the positive impact it has had on the school community.
“It’s an oasis you can come back to to step back, reorganize, reorganize and re-energize,” said Ms. Dixon. “I am really proud of the software I designed… [the school] He gave me the launch pad… and I feel it was very informative and helpful [for students]. ”
Everyone knows that if you need a book, it learning Commons is the place to go. However, very few people know about the Book Room – a storage room with bookshelves on each wall filled with stacks of books.
The room is not available to students, which is one of the best kept secrets in the English department. Containing all chapter copies of the books assigned to the chapters for all four grades – from “To Kill A Mockingbird” to “Ender’s Game”, the narrow, cramped room contains thousands of plays and novels that students have read over the years.
