Learners and Leaders Every Day!
Fort Daniel Families,
We had fun at FDES on Book Character Dress Up Day. The smiles on the students' faces were priceless! Our next big event is just around the corner with our Thankful Candlelight Lunch Days. Please review the information below very carefully so you will know the day and time for your student's lunch.
I hope everyone enjoys the weekend - STAY WARM!
Proud to be Your Principal,
