A Note from Mrs. Phillips

Happy Spring!

Wow, what a month March was at FCE! We have so many things to celebrate before we look to the last few months of school.

  • K-Kids raised over $1,400.00 during Penny Wars to donate back to Fayette County
  • Math/Science night was a huge success with over 400 in attendance
  • Attendance letters have greatly improved our overall school attendance goal of 95%. We maintained 97% for the month of March...our best yet!
  • Our 4th grade students were able to visit the State Museum
  • Our 5th grade students were visitors to the State House
  • IREAD tests for 2nd and 3rd grades were complete
  • Dr. Suess Day brought the love of books and reading activities to our K-3 students.

I hope you enjoyed Spring Break with your family. Just a reminder, we do not have school on April 7th or April 10th. There are many free community activities happening this month. Please follow our Facebook page for more information about upcoming community events.

ILEARN is finally here! Students in grades 3-6 will be taking an online test that requires multiple days to complete. Please find more information about ILEARN on this link. It is very important that your child is prepared for the best testing environment as possible. This includes a warm breakfast (school will provide), good night sleep, and testing skills that will ease test anxiety. Please look for more information from your child's teacher on specific days and times for testing.

We also have our kindergarten round up taking place this month. We are excited to meet our newest Hornets and invite all families that will have a child turning 5 by August 1st to attend. All FCSC families are welcome to attend on Saturday, April 22nd from 9:00 a.m.- 3:00 p.m. at Little Spartans Preschool.

Our final learning targets for the year are posted below and you may also access them here. We are closing our school year, very quickly. Please make sure you stay up to date with Powerschool for your child's grades.

Our attendance is improving and we were at 97% for March. This semester we had a few new changes. Attendance letters are populated if your child has 7 or 10 unexcused absences. We are also targeting tardies. If your child is not at school, a new automated message will be calling you. Please remember to call the attendance line if your child will be absent. Our teachers are not able to code absences in Powerschool and our office keeps our records up to date. Thank you for your attention to this important detail.

My goal is to be as transparent as possible as your leader. If there is anything we can do better, please let me know. You can always message me on Dojo, Facebook or Twitter. I am also available by email and phone. I will return your communication within 24 hours.
