Kindergarten Feast

Kindergartners made their own butter, made pumpkin muffins, wore their custom tie-dyed t-shirts and turkey hats to enjoy a special feast on Tuesday!


Our new growth theme for December will be “Let’s GROW together”. Please take a picture with Flat Flame during your family celebrations/traditions and share it with us anytime throughout the month of December.

If you need a Flat Flame, please have your child come to the office. We have more to share!

Please send us your #FlameGame photos to FultonFlatFlames@district146.org

Weather Changes and Outdoor Recess

Students will be going outside for recess as much as possible this winter! We will switch to indoor recess if the wind chill is below 20, or if our grounds are too icy or wet. We value the opportunity for students to engage in movement and independent play/socialization. Please be sure to send whatever your child needs to be comfortable playing outside in this weather.

Candor Health Presentation (5th Grade)

Please review the information that went home Friday regarding our upcoming presentation from the Candor Health Education Center. Our fifth graders will receive the Puberty 2 presentation. The parent preview information can be found online. Permission slips must be signed and returned by Dec. 1. Our presentation will be Tuesday, Dec. 13. Please reach out if you have any questions.

Remote Learning Days

The start of winter weather has us planning for the potential for an eLearning day. In the event of an eLearning day, students will bring home iPads and necessary materials. Teachers will share more information about schedules and Zoom links via Seesaw or Schoology if this type of day is needed.

Health Notes

As we enter cold and flu season, here is some information about illness at school that can be found in our handbook. Students who are absent longer than 3 days for illness should bring a doctor's note to return.
