Our October lunch menu is ready!
Fall is here, so KB has been learning about harvesting. They enjoyed some homemade applesauce and worked on their fine motor skills by making an apple art project. 🍎✂️ Learning about Living and Nonliving things was also a hit! They loved the Hands On activity with Earthworms and Gummy Worms. 🪱
Ms. Simmons and her 2nd graders had a blast at Boy’s Day Out with movies and snacks! 🎥🍿
Last Friday, our students were able to spend the day learning about various activities associated with Treasure Mountain Festival. They made homemade butter, square danced, learned about dulcimers, and much more! We even had an adorable visitor dressed up as a Native American. (Thanks Mrs. Nicely 😉) Thank you to all of the staff and volunteers for making the day so fun and successful!

Mrs. Nicely’s 1st Graders and Mrs. Dove’s 3rd Graders have released some beautiful monarch butterflies recently. Mrs. Dove’s class had a pretty exciting experience with theirs. One of her students noticed a fully formed monarch butterfly in the window behind the shade. It had escaped from the tank and formed its chrysalis in the classroom. 🧡

A huge Thank You to Jodie Wimer of Lavender Raine Designs for upgrading our front doors and providing added security for our students! 🐾💙
We still have some 2021-2022 yearbooks for sale. If you are interested in purchasing one, please send $13 to school with your child in an envelope or bag with “Yearbook” labeled on the front. These are a great keepsake to look back on memories from over the years! 🐾
FES Kindergarten Color Week will be this week! We would like all Kindergarten through 6th grade students, faculty, and staff to participate and help us review our colors!

We are excited to see all of our students back in the building today! Here is our lunch menu to start the year!
A truck full of school supplies arrived at FES today! 💙 We received pencils, crayons, markers, notebooks, construction paper, scissors, pencil boxes, binders, recess equipment, backpacks, and much more! This was all made possible by the generous donations of an anonymous Corporation from northern Virginia, and delivered by our dear friends Vicki, Allison, and Michael who we have known for almost two decades. 🖍✂️📚✏️🎒 Thank you to the volunteers that came to help unload and organize! 🐾
We know times are tough, so we want to do everything we can to help our families. 🐾 Enjoy the rest of your summer! ☀️ First day back for students is August 19th! 🍎✏️📚
