Dear Fulton Families,

Last week was such a fun spirit week. We had such a blast with Character Day. Thank you to all the parents/guardians who came to visit and participated in our Character Day. The students and staff thoroughly enjoyed themselves and were happy that everyone could join us.


Dr. Burks, Mrs. Sillers, & Mrs. Brickner

Lost and Found Items

If you are wondering what happened to your child’s jacket, hat, thermos, water bottle, etc., it is probably in the lost and found. The Lost and Found table will be displayed in the front lobby during parent/teacher conference on Monday, November 21st. Please be sure to visit.

Cold Weather is Here - Please Dress for Outdoor Recess

The temperatures are getting cooler. Please be sure your child is dressed warm enough for outdoor recess every day. This includes coats, gloves, and hats. Consider labeling your child's belongings as we already have many items in the lost and found. Please note that students will be outside for recess when the temperature combined with the wind chill is not less than 20 degrees Fahrenheit. You can read more about weather guidelines/recess in the HCPSS Student Handbook under Student Health and Well-Being.

FES Service Club

The food drive went really well! In just two hours, the kids collected 601 items! They donated to Food on the 15th, an organization that feeds our older adults in need in our community. They really enjoyed the students’ enthusiasm and it was such a great way to end Session 1 of the Service Club.
