Another Week of Fun!
There's always something fun going on at Fletcher Elementary. Today, Mrs. Duncan's class went on a field trip to the Living Coast Discovery Center to learn more about ocean animals and our local ecosystem. On Wednesday, we celebrated surpassing our philanthropy fundraising goal for the American Heart Association by turning Principal Friedenberg into Principal Sundae. Students put whipped cream, walnuts, cherries, sprinkles, and chocolate sauce all over Mr. Friedenberg's head! Pictures in our highlights section below.
Next week is our SPRING OPEN HOUSE on THURSDAY from 5-6:30PM. Everyone's invited! We're also solidifying our educational partnership with Navy Squadron VRM-50 with a signing ceremony on Friday.

Student of the Week - Echo!
This week's Student of the Week is Echo in Ms. Massion's class. Echo is a wonderful student inside and out. She shows up to class with a positive attitude and ready to take on the day! She offers support to those around her, whether it be academics or inviting a friend to join the recess group. It's so great to have Echo in the classroom for these reasons and so many more reasons!
Congratulations Echo, and thank you for being a phenomenal Falcon!
