The FCS Atoms Update
Oct. 7-Oct. 11
The month of October has some amazing things coming up! Our first project is due and students will work on their service project to put their ideas into action to improve the advocacy for food systems in McDowell County. Please be on the look out for information from your student's family teacher about the service project that they will be participating in.
This week our Student Council has organized our first spring trip field trip fundraiser at Pelican's from 5-8 pm on Thursday, October 10th. Please sign up on the survey below to participate: https://forms.gle/dcomgbKfNLNfb6yf9
At 7:00am or 4:00pm on October 10th we will have a fundraiser interest meeting, if you are interested in participating in field trip fundraising, please attend one of these meetings.
This week our newest member of the FCS STEM team joins us, Matthew Hagarty. Mr. Hagarty is a graduate from NCSSM and Notre Dame University, he joins us as our STEM tutor and will provide tutoring after school from 3-5pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
NC State School Board Video Entry
A new school year begins and volunteers are always a vital part of our schools' success. Please reactivate or renew!
Urgent: Volunteer Re-activation: All approved volunteers must verify their intent to continue volunteering by updating their background check online (MCS website, parents, volunteer, volunteer application).
On November 1st any active volunteer who has not completed the re-activation process will automatically be in-activated and will no longer be able to volunteer at any McDowell County School location. To be re-activated at this point requires a new criminal background check to be completed.
