FES kindergarten students entered the "castle" each day during a unit of study on fairy tales and castles. They did projects and even held a medieval feast to celebrate their new learning. A big thanks to several creative and diligent volunteers who helped build the castle and all of it parts. When visiting the kindergarten wing, you truly felt you were entering into a castle! Great job FES!
