Article from our students on club day!
Special Interest Article.
Who am I?
Science: Students are investigating genetics, the traits that they or other things they love around them (dogs, cats, snakes) have inherited from their parents.
Math: Students are also investigating fractions, decimals, ratios, rational and irrational numbers to build a timeline of important events that occurred that helped shape who they are as people.
History: Students are investigating cultural expression, maybe the music we love or what we connect with is really part of an ancient civilization.
Language Arts: Students are reading Milkweed and discussing identity to find out more about themselves.
Students will next (beginning 9/19/16) broaden their horizons to investigate how all of the special characteristics of their classmates make us uniquely FCS.

You get to draw, color, and more.You can use your imagination, capability, and ability. To do what you love and dream of doing. The comic book club gives you a chance to draw and draw. When I went to interview them they were drawing their favorite comic book character.

The gardening club is based on preserving small invertebrates (insects lacking backbones).They are gonna plant flowers in the garden to attract butterflies. Their goal for the garden club is to make it a safe place for pollinators. As of right now they're pulling weeds so that the beautiful plants don't die. It's a lot of work for our students and teachers.
