MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL JACKSON
Please be sure to read the Skylert carefully that was sent out yesterday regarding returning rental iPads. There are specific steps to take this weekend prior to the FCE ipad turn in dates next week. If your child is in K-2 and you opted for the rental ipad to stay at school, our staff will handle getting the steps completed and will send the brick and cord home with students. Thank you!

INNOVATION LAB DONATIONS NEEDED!
There are some exciting things in the works at FCE! Next year we will have our first ever Innovation Lab! This will be a part of each student’s K-4 specials rotation. Students will experience the Innovation Lab once every 4 days during their specials block. Our inventors will be constructing, creating, collaborating, exploring, thinking critically and problem solving. We have been busy purchasing lots of resources and materials to support this space and we need your help.
We would like to begin to continually collect simple items for students to use. There will be a donation box in the hallway outside of the office to drop off any items you may have laying around the house that we can use to be innovative in the year to come.
