Outdoor Learning Lab Update
The Outdoor Learning Lab is a green space that is located between the upper elementary and middle school wing of FLS Campus. Over the years, committee work has worked hard at the upkeep and providing educational opportunities for our students. This is an all volunteer effort. Periodically a group of students wants to contribute to the school community and take on school improvement projects. One such group that developed during the 2022-2023 school year called themselves the "Green Team." The Outdoor Learning Lab Committee is still going strong at the FES and the "Green Team" has moved to the Fredericktown Middle School. The students have partnered with middle school teachers to continue the groups efforts and wow are they making a difference! The combined efforts of many have made the work a little lighter. Special thanks goes out to the following ... Colleen Gregg; OLL Chair, all committee members, Karen Bartlett, Boyd Brothers, TD Landscaping, Bruce Gregg and everyone else who has donated time, talents and materials. Special thank goes out to Mr. Brown and his staff who continue to nurture this student group.

Summer Reading Contest
Fredericktown Elementary School's Summer Reading Contest was very successful again this year. Every summer under the leadership of our Reading Specials (Ashley Overholt, Stacey Bellman, Jessica Moore and Jan Reynolds), students participate in the program. The program is voluntary and students were challenged to read during the summer. Students were celebrated with their achievements with metals, ice cream treats and a glow in the dark dance party. Students set a new record of 136 students that participated in the challenge! Great Job ... here is a snapshot of grade level accomplishments.
