Hi from Marshmallow and welcome to the new 2011-2012 website!
SIGN UP FOR FOG EMAILS.  Things are a little different, so poke around on the links at left.  Email me at with additional content, ideas, etc.  I want this site to be user-friendly and fun!  Meanwhile, make sure you get on the list to  get FOG emails and access to activities, please complete the 2011-2012 FOG Adult Survey asap.

HOW WELL DO YOU UNDERSTAND FOG?   Check out "About FOG".  It's a totally new web page and may give you some insight to things that you didn't have before.  True or False:  FOG events are supposed to be run by girls, not adults.    Go to "About FOG" and find out this answer and others that may surprise you!

FLIERS NEEDED.  As you can see under "FOG Sponsored Activities", there are a lot of ideas out there for FOG this year but we are short on details, especially fliers.  If you have questions on how to create a FOG event, put together a flier for Marshmallow to post, etc, please see the "About FOG" page for key information. 

SIGN UP FOR AMAZE!  The one flier we do have available is the aMAZE Journey workshop, which is set for November 8th.  As of August 20th, 39 of 88  spots have been taken!   So sign up on line soon using a credit card to reserve your spot and take advantage of the fact that Fairfax County Public Schools are off on November 8, 2011.
