Spring Fling 2024 a success!


The 2024 Spring Fling was a magical evening filled with all the love for our schools and our community.

From the over 150 auction items donated by local businesses and families, to the delicious food from Vita Bella and The Cabbage Shed, to the brews from Stormcloud, it was amazing.

Special thanks for all our sponsors and our Panther Parent army of volunteers. Thank you also goes out to Wandering Mixers for the beautiful bars set up and making the night sparkle.

Thanks to you, our incredible Frankfort community, we raised ………… over $30,000 to support the academic enrichment for our students at FEAS.
