Hoping your summer has been exciting and that your children have had positive educational experiences. The team looks forward to welcoming the class of 2025 this fall.
At Farragut we preach and nurture active reading with the hope of promoting lifelong reading habits. Although we assign one book to read over vacation, we encourage students to read as much as they can and to share those experiences with their peers in September.
