Admiral Farragut Academy 2019 Back-to-School Parent Social

All parents are invited to the 2019 Back-to-School Parent Social on Monday, August 19, 2019, from 4:00-6:00 p.m. in DeSeta Hall at Admiral Farragut Academy. Please submit your RSVP to attend.

You will enjoy light hors d’oeuvres, a donation drink bar, and the opportunity to socialize with new and returning parents. The event is hosted by the Farragut Family Association (FFA), a volunteer-driven group that all parents are a member of.

Since alcohol is served, this event is for adults only. For those with currently enrolled Lower School students (PreK-7th grade), childcare will be provided at no cost in the Huntley Gymnasium (location has changed to the PreK classroom). If your Upper School child would like to earn volunteer hours and supervise, please let us know in the form.

Please include the number of Lower School children with names and ages so we have enough supervision.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Charlie Duke ’53 recalls Apollo 11 moon landing on the 50th anniversary

On July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 landed on the moon and changed history for space exploration. In this video, astronaut and Farragut graduate, Charlie Duke ’53S, who later became the 10th and youngest man to walk on the moon with Apollo 16, recalls his experience being CAPCOM for the landing.   ✨

These moments make us so proud yet humbled that we could be at the beginning of a journey that led to the moon. “Keep your vision wide,” says Charlie. ⚓️

Farragut graduate Alan Shepard ’41 also walked on the moon with Apollo 14.
