Pennies for Patients

April 5, 2017

The checks, dollars, quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies have been counted! FES has donated a grand total of $1,951.86 for the Pennies for Patients campaign for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society!!! What an awesome example of our staff and students' generosity!!!

Master Gardener Joe Crozier prepared a delicious salad made from vegetables grown in the FES garden and tended by 1st and 4th grade students.

Once Upon a Time.....

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.

Together We Achieve More!

January 27, 2017

4th graders have partnered with students in Mrs. Chamberlain's class to provide mentoring and enrichment.  This is an example of teamwork at its best!
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.

When studying Christmas around the world, FES 2nd graders rotated from "country to country". While in Australia, they enjoyed guest speakers Mr. Norman, a FES tutor, and his parents, Richard and Johanne Norman. The Normans are from Australia and were happy to tell the children how Christmas is celebrated in the land "down under".
