Dear FCSS Community:
It is with a heavy heart that I share with you that Mrs. Sandra Mercier passed away earlier today.
Mrs. Mercier dedicated her life to our community through the field of education. She began her teaching career with the FCSS in 1972, and her service spanned five decades. She completed 26 years as a classroom teacher and served longest as “the” senior English teacher of FCHS. Mrs. Mercier was chosen as the STAR Teacher five times, was FCHS’s Teacher of the Year, and was selected as the 1999 FCSS Teacher of the Year.
In addition to her outstanding career as a teacher, Mrs. Mercier entered leadership in 1999 as an assistant principal at FCHS. In 2000, she was promoted to the central office to serve as a director, and from 2002 to 2007, Mrs. Mercier served as Superintendent. After retirement, she returned to serve as a member of our Board of Education.
Through her impeccable methodology, Mrs. Mercier taught countless students how to write and to think in a variety of ways; she did the same for many of our district’s current teachers and leaders. Generations looked up to her, and her legacy will impact many more to come. Please join me in keeping the family in thoughts and prayers.

Mr. Buffy Coleman was the Red Ribbon Week Speaker at Fannin County Middle School on Oct 24, 2018. Buffy “Mr. Magic” was discovered by and attended the 1993 Harlem Globetrotters training Camp. He still makes personal appearances with the World Famous Harlem Wizards.
Buffy has spoken to more than 5,000,000 adults and youth across North America while visiting over 3,000 schools. The show was entertainment as well as fun for the entire student body and school faculty, with comedy and amazing basketball skills. Most of all there was an inspirational message for our FCMS students which included making good choices for their lives.
On October 4th-7th, the Fannin County High School Livestock Show Team competed in Perry,
Georgia at the Georgia National Fair. The show team participated in sheep, goat, and cattle
weight classes and showmanship. The team members were Jordan Long, Kayla Hipp, and
Bretton Williams. Jordan long placed 11th in the weight class and Kayla Hipp received 9th in
her Ewe weight class. Bretton Williams placed 1st in his weight class with his Dexter steer.
Besides competing with sheep, goats, and cattle, team members also enjoyed time at the fair,
viewed the new animal birthing barn, and viewed many educational exhibits.
The FCHS Acting Troupe 6952, “The Rebellion,” would like to announce their GHSA One Act Competition-Presentation of Macbeth Fallout, written by William Shakespeare and adapted for stage by Trey Clarkson, arranged by Eldridge Plays and Musicals.
This one-act version of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth maintains the Bard’s original dialogue but changes the setting to a post-apocalyptic world affected by nuclear fallout. The setting allows for many opportunities for creative staging, props, music, and lighting. Use of a shadow scrim and silhouettes intensifies the edgy nature of the play.
Directed by Todd Geren, Ed.S.
Rated PG13 for Frightening Images and Stage Violence.
Presented on Sunday, October 21, 2018 at 4 PM at the FCHS Performing Arts Center. $5 at the box office.
Presented for non-public viewing at the GHSA One Act Competition at Dawson County High School in Dawsonville, GA on October 25, 2018.
Please come support The Rebellion!
