Snapshots of the Week

Check out a few of the new things that we have going in our building for this year! We also will be in the process of replacing our front reception desk once materials arrive.

Baking with the Principals!

For one of our Ci3T FMES Ticket celebrations, we did a raffle for students to bake cookies with the principals! We drew a student from each grade level and got to bake some chocolate chip cookies today! The kids did a wonderful job and we all had a blast!

Please use the link below to sign up for a taco kit on September 27th with Moe's. These kits will be delivered and handed out at school starting at 4:30pm. This is an easy way to both get an evening meal for the family and also to support our school!

Updated Spirit Week!

We have updated the Spirit Week to October 3-7 so that there would not be an overlap with Kindergarten's color week!

2022-2023 Lunch Visitors

To keep our building as secure and safe as possible, parents and visitors are allowed four visits per year during lunch with up to two adults per visit. This is in addition to any events or celebrations that our school, class, or grade levels may plan. When visiting for lunch, parents and visitors are only allowed to bring their child on the stage. Please do not invite additional students to sit on the stage during this time.


When you come in for lunch, please make sure when you are checking in at the front desk that you select 'Visiting for Lunch' as your reason for entering the school.
