Mrs. Clark's 3rd grade class at FES has been studying chicken embryology. They set 24 eggs in the incubator in March and 21 days later - it's hatch day!  The students have been working on science lessons in their embryology journals during the incubation period.  They'll keep the chicks for a few weeks as classroom pets before sending them off to grow up on a local farm!

Once Upon a Time.....

January 27, 2017

A huge thanks to all of our parents who were able to come and share their love of reading with students from kindergarten to 4th grade.
During Literacy Week at FES, Superintendent Hughes and members of the district Title 1 department (Myca Harrison, Jaime Mitchell, Lori Hughes, Darius Paul) read some of their favorite books to students in 2nd and 3rd grade.

100 Days of School

January 27, 2017

Kindergarten had to save 100's Day! Devious Agent 99 stole Zero the Hero and if students did not save him, it would be the 99th day of school forever! Students had to scan their fingerprints for access into the class and then were fingerprinted and received their secret agent badges. The morning was spent in stations completing activities that focused around the number 100. Later, students made 100 piece snacks with explosive spy potions, and then stacked 100 cups. After each mission, they received a self-destructing message and a clue of where to find Zero the Hero. The clues led to P.E., and they found a box waiting full of spy kits for the kids. 



To kick off Literacy Week FES students were visited by author/illustrator, Michelle Nelson-Schmidt, on January 19. She shared her books, artwork, and love of literacy with students in grades 1-4.
