Fayetteville High School is participating in the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement.COURAGE + GRATITUDE + FORGIVENESS + COMPASSION IN ACTION = CHOOSING LOVE = CHOOSING LOVE. 

For the month of March the Choose Love Theme is COURAGE. Courage is doing the right thing, even if it may be hard. When you have courage it doesn't mean you aren't afraid. Having courage means you push those fears aside to do what is right. You make choices that help you be your best self, making life better for yourself and others. Every day you can show courage in little and big ways. Every day we will post a Choose Love Challenge for the day.

Choose Love Challenge for today, March 15th is: Have the Courage to respect someone's opinion even if it is different from yours.
