Tiger Update

Masks are Needed!

We have had a very high occurrence every day of children forgetting masks, breaking their masks, losing them at recess, etc. We are running very short of supply. We would greatly appreciate donations of children's masks! If you would like to help out - please select boxes of disposable children's masks. You may drop off at the office or send in with your child. We truly appreciate your help!



Parent Reminder:

We also ask that your child does not come to school or ride the bus without a mask. It has been very helpful for parents to put one or two extras in their child's backpack as well!


Wearing a mask in the classroom and bus consistently is even more important now with the change in quarantine for students. If ALL students and staff in the classroom or on the bus are masked, they would not have to quarantine if a close contact. Please work with your student to understand the importance of masking in the classroom and bus.

Cafeteria Menu Changes

The following is our menu changes for the week of Nov. 8-12


Monday - Cheese Pizza with Corn

Tuesday - Grilled Cheese with Baked Beans

Wednesday - Cheeseburger Sliders with Butternut Squash

Thursday - French Toast & Sausage Links with Tater Tots

Friday - No school


Please remember - Menu items are subject to change at any time. Due to the supply shortage, changes are at a higher probability until the food delivery situation is resolved. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Student Council Food Drive

FES Student Council is hosting a Food Drive from now until November 22nd. Any nonperishable food is acceptable including but not limited to canned goods, cereal, rice, etc. Thank you in advance for your support!

ART TO REMEMBER

Our students have been hard at work creating their MASTERPIECES in the art room for our annual ART TO REMEMBER art room fundraiser.

This company has excellent products to choose from each featuring your child’s artwork. For example, there are mugs, notebooks, nightlights, coaster ornaments, mousepads, water bottles and keychains just to name a few.


Prices vary and orders may be placed online or by sending order form and check to school. The order forms have arrived at school and will come home with your child this week. All ordering information is included. You will have until November 9th if you wish to make a purchase. Proceeds will be used to purchase amazing materials for all art classes! Thank you!
