Some things in life seem fixed, like Tax Day, Christmas, and Halloween. FCHS Graduation Day seemed one of those standard dates as well, always falling on the Saturday before Memorial Day. Until now.

January 31, 2020

Students began the 2020 school year with welcome news--namely, that students would now have 30 minutes to eat lunch, broken up into three longer lunch periods, compared to four shorter lunches.

Call Me a Skeptic on Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order

John Bernat, Fluco Beat Editor

January 9, 2020

To my surprise, Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts appear to have upheld their promises for a linear, microtransaction-free, story-driven Star Wars game in the form of Rise Of The Fallen Order.
