TRANSPORTATION CHANGES MADE DURING THE DAY

Parents, please be aware of our policy regarding a transportation change that occurs during the school day. All telephone calls must be received by 2:00PM. This is to allow enough time to accurately deliver messages to teachers, as well as time to confirm the change if necessary. Please do not call the school after 2:00PM to make a transportation change except in the case of extreme emergencies. Thank you!

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 chancc@gmail.com.
