Holiday Preview-Last Day to RSVP!


Our annual Holiday Preview is a program for the senior citizens in and around the Firelands School District. We welcome our seniors and retired FLSD staff members to FHS for a morning of music and great food. Our Select Choir and Jazz Band, along with student soloists and a surprise appearance (that will warm your heart) is all brought together in appreciation for the positive contributions that our senior citizens have had on our community and student body.

The morning program will highlight our art departments with holiday music and student service. Our senior citizens and retired staff have been wonderful role models for our students. Please join us on December 8thso that we may say “thank you” for guiding these young men and women. Entertainment is provided at this free event by our students in appreciation of your time and dedication to our community.

This year, we are taking reservations and asking our guests to RSVP to Jennifer at 440-965-5821 ext 1015 or to reserve your spot for a free brunch!
