Best of luck to our 4th grader archers this weekend!

Final Push for Read-a-Thon

Our Read-a-Thon concludes next Monday, March 14th. It's not too late to register and send out emails or make posts on Facebook to help raise funds for FES! Click on this link to activate your reader's personal page.

This fundraiser is taking the place of our annual Reading for Education fundraiser. At this point, we have not met our $8,000 goal. This money will be used to help with our courtyard renovation, classroom resources, student field trips, t-shirts, etc. Every penny raised goes right back to our students, and we'd love your support!

Family Wellness Night

Please mark your calendars for our FES Spring Wellness Event on Friday, April 29th from 6:00 to 8:00 at Ferdinand Elementary (Rain date Friday May 6th). There will be a variety of health and wellness activities happening! More details to come in April.

We are still working out the details, but we are tentatively planning for Tuesday, May 10 with a rain date of Friday, May 13th. Please have grandparents mark their calendars!! More information will be sent out in the coming week.
