Way to go FCI!

FCI's school rating from the Department of Education is an A!!! This is a team effort reflective of all the FCI community ~ both inside and outside the school walls! Thank you...and CONGRATULATIONS, FCI!!!

Keeping Focused

In an effort to keep instructional time as free from distraction as possible, students have been reminded of the following:

  • Absolutely NO texting/personal emailing during the school day (7:45 a.m.-2:45 p.m.) to students OR parents via any type of program/app/etc. Consequences will be given should this occur.
  • If students receive texts/emails during the school day, they should immediately notify their teacher or staff member.
  • We realize there may need to be communication between students working collaboratively during the school day. However, it should only be done at teacher direction/approval.
  • Texting/emailing that does occur outside of school is a parental approval issue. However, if content of texting/emailing outside of school negatively impacts/affects the school environment, there may be consequences that are imposed at school.

As always, if you need to get a message that is a change for your child, please call the office at 915-4220. All other situations should be resolved outside the school day.

Calling all BASKETBALL fans!!

The boys basketball season is here and our first game is also our After-School Student game – Nov 18th @ 3:15 p.m. This is a great way to come together as a school and support our Falcons!

Important game details:

  • Print permission slip to complete and bring back when purchasing ticket. (http://www.hse.k12.in.us/FCI/news/)
  • Tickets are $1 for students.
  • Pre-sale tickets will be sold in homerooms on November 14th and 17th. (Students should bring exact money along with their permission slip.)
  • If students forget to pre-purchase their ticket prior to Tuesday, they can bring their permission slip and money on Tuesday to buy it at the door.
  • Only students who have a signed permission slip will be allowed to stay after school and attend the game.
  • Teachers will escort students to the gym after bus dismissal.
  • Students who do not stay after school are still welcome to have a parent bring them back to the game.
  • Concessions will be available to purchase. Please have students bring money to school to avoid causing disruptions with drop-offs during the day.
  • Pickup time for students is 5:00 p.m.
    • 6th grade – bus lot pickup
    • 5th grade – front parking lot pickup
    • Pickup vehicles should line up just like after-school pickup.
    • For the safety of our students, they will not be allowed to walk across the parking lot to get to vehicles.

Author Visit

Author Ben Mikaelson shared the journey of his life with FCI students on Friday. His message of being ‘big’ enough to be strong and support others when they are being teased/bothered was personal for him as he was the bullied who became a bully. He noted that every time the bully puts others down, whispers behind their backs, texts something negative…he/she is telling the world that he/she is feeling tiny and not confident. Mr. Mikaelson challenged students to be the ‘big’ person and make it the best story of their lives.

Falcon Voices

The Falcon Voices shared their amazing talents with a full house this evening. Join them in Dec. 11 for an evening of musical bliss as they are joined by the FCI orchestra and band.
