Thank you for double checking that your child is making appropriate clothes choices each day!

SPRING FLING NEEDS YOUR HELP!
FCE’s Spring Fling is May 5 this year and we are starting to plan this event! In case you didn’t know, Spring Fling is a carnival style event where students play various games and have a ton of fun! It is our biggest fundraiser, so it takes a lot of volunteers. We have openings for Admissions Chair, Decorations chair, Marketing Chair and Head Co-Chair. We have evening meetings once a month usually at Murphy’s…that’s where we do our best thinking! You will have guidance and support from the other committee members. If interested in learning more about any of these positions, please contact Carl Chan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
