Thank you to Mrs. VanWynsberghe, Mrs. Philhower, Mrs. Huffer, and Mrs. Miller, and the student council for hosting Muffins with Moms this past week. A special thank you to Starbucks and the Mohr family for the coffee donation! The students really enjoy this event, and we served muffins to over 950 guests this year!

FCE masterpieces are now online!

ARTSONIA is virtual student art museum. Artsonia manages school art galleries in a safe and educational way. Please use your child's Artsonia permission slip to access a world of creativity! With Artsonia you can... upload art, add family to your child's fab club, give feedback, and purchase keepsake items. The purpose of this digital portfolio program is to track your artist's creative growth and keep a collective virtual bank of their creations over time. This is not intended to be a primary fundraising program. However, any money generated through Artsonia keepsake purchases will help provide art supplies for our artists. Thank you for your support. If you have any questions or concerns please contact our art teacher, Sherri Parkison, at sparkison@hse.k12.in.us . Thank you.

TRANSPORTATION CHANGES MADE DURING THE DAY

This is to allow enough time to accurately deliver messages to teachers, as well as time to confirm the change if necessary.

SPRING FLING NEEDS YOUR HELP!

FCE’s Spring Fling is May 5 this year and we are starting to plan this event! In case you didn’t know, Spring Fling is a carnival style event where students play various games and have a ton of fun! It is our biggest fundraiser, so it takes a lot of volunteers. We have openings for Admissions Chair, Decorations chair, Marketing Chair and Head Co-Chair. We have evening meetings once a month usually at Murphy’s…that’s where we do our best thinking! You will have guidance and support from the other committee members. If interested in learning more about any of these positions, please contact Carl Chan at chancc@gmail.com.
