Hello FCS families,
As most of you are aware, the entire FCS students will be giving a performance on Friday, January 20th at the VERGENNES UNION HIGH SCHOOl, in the auditorium. Check below for specific information.
***Dress rehearsal-Morning of Friday, January 20th. Buses will be bringing all students and staff to VUHS. Your child will be given a dress rehearsal permission slip on Friday, January 6th. Please return these permission slips to your child’s homeroom teacher ASAP.
***The concert starts promptly at 7pm at VUHS. Please do not arrive any earlier than 6:40pm. Please be aware that there is a high school basketball game the same night. ***Parking will be tight. Plan accordingly.
***Each class will be designated a special area in the auditorium. There will be Grade 5/6 stage managers holding signs with each teacher’s names upon them. Students of each class must have at least one parent/guardian sitting with them in these designated areas. Of course, both parents/guardians, family members may sit with them as well. By having each class sit in a specific place, the flow of entering and exiting the stage will run more smoothly. Your child will return to her/his seat after her/his time on stage.
***THERE IS A DRESS CODE for students. Grades 2/3/4/5/6 are expected to wear white on top, black on bottom. The white will not have any letters, or symbols…completely white. Ties, necklaces, bowties are acceptable. We have been discussing this outfit for a couple months.
Grades K/1 are expected to wear something clean, colorful and presentable. They are NOT expected to wear white and black.
***The show will run just over an hour. Except for K/1, it is expected that all 2/3/4/5/6 students stay for the entire concert. Please allow your child to see the entire performance, as politeness is a huge part of my music class. We have been discussing this for a while, as well.
***We have also been discussing the importance of no talking as an audience member. Please help the program run smoothly by reminding your child of this polite behavior when the concert is being presented.
I look forward to a wonderful evening with you and your children,
We were fortunate to have Hunter Dan, who recently wrote Take Bullying by the Horn, as a speaker on the afternoon of January 12th. Accompanying him was former FCS student, Julia Johnson, the 2017 Miss Vermont Collegiate, and Chief Merkel. Together they talked about the importance of standing up to bullies and keeping your friends safe. A big thanks to Mrs. Pierce for organizing this wonderful event.
Yep it’s flu season again!! Here’s a great reminder from school nurse Annie Cohn:
According to the CDC Flu tracking system, Vermont is now experiencing flu illnesses at the local level. Meaning: It's HERE!
Please take a few minutes out of your day to get your Flu vaccination, if you haven't done so already. This is not only for your protection, but for the added protection of the community in which we live. The elderly, the very young, and those with chronic diseases or certain medical conditions are so susceptible, and the more of us that are vaccinated, the larger the bubble of protection is around them.
I spoke to Kinney Drugs today, and they have vaccinations available throughout their working day:
They will take most health insurance, and will alert your MD if desired.
Mondays - Fridays 8:30 AM to 9:00 PM
Saturdays 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM
Sundays 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM
