FEC Weekly News

December 2nd, 2015

Have a great weekend!!

This week flew by!! It was a great one, and I'm pretty excited by our Twitter challenge. It's fun to watch everyone post what's happening at FEC. Don't forget our hashtag #fechornets, and the district one of #fpslearn.

We have openings in PAT for the first time since I've started at FEC! With Suella joining the team and taking on families, we are able to serve more. Please help us spread the word! We will be sending fliers home with all elementary students next week, and have received word from several organizations (First Steps, CARDV, SERVE, etc) that they will help us spread the word as well.

For those of you who didn't get to see him, Anthony's mom brought him in for a visit on Thursday. He is now home and going through several different therapies. We are about to wrap up our wishing well fundraiser - make sure to let your students and families know! Also don't forget about our adopt a family tags on the tree. It's looking good but we have some left.

Don't forget the social at Carla's this Saturday night! Bring whatever type of gift you want - around a $10 limit. It sounds like it will be a great time for everyone to relax together for a bit! Thank you so much to Carla and her family for opening their home to us!!

Enjoy your weekend with family and friends! I hope that you have a chance to re-charge and relax. Don't forget to take care of yourselves!!!

Conscious Discipline Book Study

Thank you for all of your responses!! I'm excited to get our book study started, and keep Conscious Discipline going strong. The CD committee will be assisting me in leading the book study - thank you ladies!

The books are expensive, so I will be ordering several copies, but not one for everyone. I'm thinking we can share, copy small amounts, etc. to make it work.

We will start in January and go through May. We are close to consensus of twice a month on Mondays, with pizza. Teachers, I highly encourage you to attend, so that we can ensure that we are all learning the same things and no one is out of the loop. To the rest of the FEC staff, we would love to have you when are able to come.

I will put the dates on the calendar. I won't invite you though, to avoid filling up your inbox, so please make sure to check when they are. Thanks!! :)
