Fayette Central Mission Statement
The staff of Fayette Central believes that all students can learn given quality educational programs and a desire to learn. Through a cooperative effort that involves the family, school, and community, Fayette Central will provide a safe, educational environment which promotes learning. We will prepare students academically and socially to function as independent, productive citizens and life-long learners.
It seems the fall weather is definitely upon us. Please help students come dressed for the weather. We know that fall weather in Connersville can be really warm one day and very chilly the next. Our students do not wear their outwear all day in their classrooms so they may need to bring a sweater or sweatshirt they can put on if they get chilly. Please let us know if you know of any of our students that do not have coats, hats, or gloves to wear this fall or winter.
Our vision screening for grades 3 and 5 is coming up this week on November 10 with the Lions Club. We will also have Mobile Dentist for all grades which will be Dec. 2
We have some important dates coming up. Families may pick up their orders in the gym . Please make arrangements to pick up all trashbag orders during this timeframe.
November 11 is Veterans Day this year and due to our Covid restrictions we are unable to host our usual Grandparents Day and Veterans Day celebrations; however, Mrs. Faulkenberg' s Hornet News Team will be presenting a special production in house and online for our students and families to help them all realize the sacrifices our Veterans have made for us.
American Education Week is November 15-19. Again, we will not be having our usual public activities; however, we will still be having our Book Fair for students to purchase their own books and other treats and we will have special dress up days each day that week beginning with storybook character dress up day on Monday. Your children will be bringing home additional information shortly.
November 23 is our picture retake day for any student who was absent on our first picture day. If your child's pictures were not acceptable they can bring their packet back and have them retaken on retake day.
Thanksgiving Break will be November 24-26.

Mrs. Miller's Third Grade Class News
Fayette Central third graders have been learning what it means to be good citizens. Officer Blaze with the Fayette County Sheriff’s Department has been coming to school twice a week and teaching students about decisions, consequences, setting goals, and making friends. Here’s what some students had to say about the School Rocks program with Officer Blaze.
“I learned that Officer Blaze keeps people safe from drugs. He was always making us laugh and making it fun to learn from him.” - Will Russell
“We learned a lot of new stuff and what to do and not to do. We learned a lot about consequences. I enjoyed it a lot.” -Madalynn Weston
“When I heard about Officer Blaze, I felt excited to see him. He taught me not to be a bad person.” -James Moses
We also celebrated Red Ribbon week in the month of October. Students had fun participating in dress up days to show their support for living a drug free life. Third graders at Fayette Central are amazing and working hard to better themselves, make good decisions, and be great citizens in Connersville, Indiana.
Ms. Flansaas' Fifth Grade News
We have gotten off to a fantastic start in Ms. Flansaas’ class! I’m really proud of the hard work my students have put in to make their 5th grade year a success.
In science we’ve been learning about the scientific method. Students practiced writing testable hypotheses and designed their own experiments to find out what wheat seeds need to break their dormancy. Some of the results were surprising!
During social studies we are learning about the early European explorers who came to the Americas. Their motivations for exploring, along with the positive and negative consequences of those explorations, had a huge impact on the way our country began. As we move further into the year, we’ll learn about the colonies that started in America and the causes and lasting effects of the Revolutionary War.
Students have been hard at work in math to learn about the place value of decimals so they can add, subtract, multiply and divide decimals fluently. We built a number line to practice ordering decimals and have practiced adding and subtracting decimals with fun activities like planning a restaurant menu. As we begin multiplying and dividing decimals, please make sure to keep practicing multiplication facts with your children. Being multiplication fact fluent is one of the best ways to make 5th grade math easier!
