The Fromberg Falcons are proud to provide a host of activities outside of the classroom. Please take a look at everything our school has to offer students beyond the text book.
The Art club was started in 2015 by Lindi O'Brien to give our young artists a safe place to work after or before school. Over the course of the years, our program has evolved to fit into the niches where supervision is needed for students interested in art. There are opportunities to work after school, weekends, or in coordination with other school programs like sports, FFA, drama, and class projects. The Fromberg Falcon Art Club provides community service in a variety of ways working with local businesses and state and national entities to provide artwork focused on conservation, safety, and community awareness needs. Lisa Yedlicka helped us start the Strut Your Stuff Art Show and Bazaar in 2017, establishing our biggest fundraiser. This offers an opportunity for area artists and vendors to showcase their products and provide the community with an amazing shopping opportunity. All proceeds collected are used by students for media and educational trips. In the past they experienced exhibits showing original works by Monet, and a theatrical production of Phantom of the Opera, and an immersion into the craft of Pixar's computer animation via Denver Science Museum. Kandace Pete provided a final key piece to the success of the Art Club, acting as a chauffeur/chaperone and offering her artistic talents and fundraising skill to boost our club.
Forensics (Speech and Debate) is offered for boys and girls at the high school level. Practices typically start towards the end of October and last through the end of January. Students select an event from a wide range of speech, debate, and drama options and work on their piece for the duration of the season. Students present their piece at weekend meets leading up to the divisional meet. In order to qualify for state, students must place in the top eight of their event at the divisional meet. In order to letter in forensics, students must compete at the state meet.
The music program allows students to learn rhythm, beat, vocal skills, and instrumental abilities. It is offered for all students from kinder-one to seniors. While learning these skills, the students will present them to the public at the Christmas Concert and at the Spring concert. The 7-12 graders will also have the opportunity to compete as a band, a soloist, and/or a small group during different events throughout the year. At these events they will be graded on their musical ability and given tips on how to improve.Please see the events calendar HERE for all conert dates or upcoming performances.
Science Olympiad competitions are like academic track meets, consisting of a series of 23 team events in each division (Division B is middle school; Division C is high school). Each year, a portion of the events are rotated to reflect the ever-changing nature of genetics, earth science, chemistry, anatomy, physics, geology, mechanical engineering and technology. By combining events from all disciplines, Science Olympiad encourages a wide cross-section of students to get involved. Emphasis is placed on active, hands-on group participation.
High School Girls Basketball will begin November 17 th at 3:30 in the gym and will go till the end of
tournaments. High School basketball is offered to grades 8-12 spending on numbers there is a Varsity
and Junior Varsity team. These teams are based on skill level of the girl, not their grade level. Even if girls
have never played basketball, but are interested in trying it out, they should come to a practice.
Basketball is a great way of staying in shape during the winter months and getting to be a part of
something. The coaches for this season are Taijah Verlanic and Megan Flint, who are both excited to
pass on their love of the game.
Junior High Girls Basketball is 5-8 grade sport for girls looking to learn the game of basketball; even if
they have never played, it’s a great starting spot! Depending on numbers, the games are split us into A
games and B games. A is for older and experienced players, and B is for lower level and those learning
the game. The team is coached by Taijah Verlanic and Megan Flint, who are also the High School
coaches for Girls Basketball.
Junior High Girls Basketball started October 10 th this year. The last game for the girls will be November
22 nd . This year we allowed 4 th graders to play with us which has been great to see younger girls learning
about basketball! We are a B team due to the girls never playing before; the improvement has been
amazing to see, and their effort and heart is always high.
Thanks for allowing us the opportunity to coach your daughters and teach them the game of basketball!

High School Boys Basketball (HSBB) is already upon us. We are excited for this year as we have been
building a program that can compete with teams across the state. Following a disappointing end to our
21-22 season, the fire is still burning as hot as when we exited districts last year. Our numbers have
been through the roof for our little school, and nearly all the boys who can, have signed up to play. We
have student athletes stepping on the court for the first time to players who have been passionate
about the sport all their lives. This presents our team a unique, but very rewarding opportunity. As
Thomas Reid said “a chain is no stronger than its weakest link,” that holds a lot a weight for our team.
Our more experienced players are given the opportunity to not only lead our team, but become mentors
to the lesser experienced players. This is one of my favorite parts about Class C basketball and residing
in this rural area. Your Fromberg Falcons are ecstatic to start this 22-23 season. We start off by taking a
few bus rides playing games in Red Lodge against their JV on Dec. 3, followed by the kickoff tournaments
in Harlowton and Broadview Dec. 8-10 th . Our first home game is Dec. 13 th against Billings Christian. If you
find time in your busy schedule, please come support your local team. The stands have been filling up
these last two years, but if we could start packing our gym, our teams would greatly appreciate the
support. GO FALCONS!!!Please see our events calendar for the most updated game schedule. Click HERE to view the events calendar.
Cross Country is offered for boys and girls at both the junior high and high school levels. Practices typically start before the first day of school and the season ends at the end of October. The high school division runs 3.2 miles (a 5K), and the junior high runs anywhere from 1.5-2 miles, depending on the course. In order to qualify for the state meet, high school athletes must run in at least two meets during the season as well as meet the state qualifying time. In order to letter in cross country, high school athletes must run at the state meet.
The Junior High Volleyball team had a great season this year. We had 10 girls joining us for the season.
The girls stepped it up this year and worked hard at learning the techniques that make a great Volleyball
player. The 7 th graders had to step up and be the leaders because the 8 th graders all played on the high
school team. Although we missed the 8 th graders, it was a great opportunity for the younger ones to
learn to lead the team. I know every coach thinks they have a good team, but I believe we had a great
team. Like all teams, we had our rough days, but the girls always made us proud of their hard work and
determination. They always showed up on game day ready to play, ready to work together as a team,
and ready to win (or at least go down fighting). We gave everyone a run for their money. There is not
one team out there that can say we were easy to beat, if the other team was successful in beating us,
they had to work for it.
As coaches, we focus on the fundamentals of volleyball. We believe the junior high years are very
important to make successful high school players. We focus on good habits and try to always teach
good techniques. Our motto is it takes 10 seconds to develop a bad habit and months to correct it.
Although winning is always the goal, learning to be better players is the thing we focus on the most.
The girls did not win all their games this year, but we saw a great improvement in the older girls setting
up the ball and getting spikes and the younger kids learning good passing and good serving. The
younger girls also learned how to set the ball up and get some hits by the end of the season.
Remember students and parents: we need everyone to make a team. Please encourage your kids to
give sports a try. Sure, not everyone will be a college or professional athlete, but sports teach students
so much more. It teaches them to be a team player, how to work with others, how to improve on skills,
and how to focus on the future no matter how the last play went. Many memories are made on the
court, on the bus rides, and in the stands. It doesn't matter if they are on the court or supporting the
others on the court, the kids learn that hard work pays off and working together with others and helping
lift others up instead of dragging them down makes for a successful player.
