Dear Falcon Fans,
Last fall, we experienced a level of school-spirit that we haven’t seen in our 15-plus years as Fort Worth Country Day parents. Our students carved out a dedicated section in the football stands and stayed on their feet for 48 minutes of every game, including in Dallas as the Falcons clinched another SPC Championship. You’ve got to experience the energy for yourself – it’s awesome!
This year, we hope that same school-spirit and energy spread to ALL of FWCD’s sports and, more importantly, to all families JK-12. So this fall, cheer on our volleyball athletes as they dig, dink and kill. Go to a cross-country meet and yell as they run a course that bends through trees and over hills. Leave the office early to watch a fast-paced field hockey game where our athletes flick, scoop and drive a rock-hard ball. And then there’s the Texas tradition of “Friday Night Lights” with our cheerleaders, band and fans cheering for the football team as they defend their SPC title.
You also can show your support by joining Falcon Club – FWCD’s athletic booster club, which helps fund Lower School and Middle School PE programs, in addition to Middle School and Upper School sports. As members, you can proudly display your 2019-20 Falcon Club sticker and use your Falcon Bucks (a thank you for joining) to grab some gear at the NEST. Then you’ll be ready to head out to cheer on our incredible athletes. With your support, it’s going to be a fantastic year!
