Where Learning Takes Flight
A Note from Mrs. Tallent
Exciting News...our PTO will be purchasing 7 additional smart boards for classrooms with funds from the PTO Spring Fundraiser and we were able to use campus funds to add 3 more! Once they arrive, we will have 4 smart boards in every grade level. We only need 11 more to reach our goal of having a smart board in every classroom!!! We will make this our focus for Boosterthon this upcoming school year and have no doubt we will be able to reach our goal.
Parents please be on the look out for EOY grade level picnic information in your grade level newsletters! We look forward to having parents join us for EOY Picnics to celebrate the hard work students have done all year! We are keeping an eye out on the weather since there may be a chance of rain. If it is raining, we will try to hold our picnics under the pavilion. If it is storming too bad, we will need to cancel the picnics.
As we approach the last week of school, we just want to say thank you to all our parents for all their support! Being able to lead this amazing group of teachers has been an honor, and I am so proud of what our students have accomplished this school year! We hope you and your families have a restful summer!

5th Grade Car Parade and 5th Grade EOY Events
Our fifth grade parents can find a list of the events we have planned for our 5th grade students below. Since we will need to be flexible with timing for many of these events and we don't have extra staff available to monitor check in and check out, we are only able to invite parents to attend the grade level picnics! 5th grade parents will be able to join their parents for our park picnic! Please reach out to your child's 5th grade teacher if you have any questions!
A Note from our Librarian
Dear Parents and Families,
Can you believe it’s almost summer break? The FCE Library will begin end-of-year book return on Monday, May 2nd. Your child will be given an opportunity to return their library books during their regular library rotation from 5/2-5/11. Overdue slips will be generated after May 12th. If you need to report a book as lost, please contact me (Ms. Andrew) at the email address listed below. I’m happy to help you through the process.
Paying for lost books is easy with our online Revtrak payment portal!
As an incentive for returning library books and paying fines so the library can afford to replace lost copies, all students whose accounts are cleared by the last week of school will be entered in a raffle on Friday, May 27th. Winners will be announced throughout the morning to come to the library and claim their prizes.
I sincerely appreciate your support in spreading the joy of reading through student choice in our school library. Thank you again and have a wonderful week!
