Dear FCS Families,

 The signs of summer have been ever present this week at FCS. Students enjoy the playground and preparing the veggie gardens.

The blueberry bushes are budding and students from Ms. Babcock’s class are starting the cucumbers. The starts are ready to plant as soon as the last threat of frost passes.

 The 3/4 Field Trip to the Rokeby

On a very warm Thursday, the 3/4 team took a field trip to the Rokeby museum. They have been studying the underground railroad in social studies and the Rokeby provided a glimpse at how Ferrisburgh played an important role in aiding slaves to freedom.

Students also learned that the Robinsons smoked their own meat, made their own wool, and had a creamery. A heartfelt thank you to the PTO, Ferrisburgh families and all businesses that supported our field trip fundraiser this fall that helped to make it all happen.

Miss Vermont, Erin Connor or Bridport, stopped in to meet with the K-2 students on Thursday afternoon. She talked to them about goal setting and being good role models. Since Miss Connor is a pilot, she focused on careers in science, math and engineering. When asked what science careers there are , students eagerly responded, “paleontologists”, “astrophysicists”  “farmers” and “engineers”. Wow… it looks like we have some future scientists here!

TONIGHT IS THE CONCERT!!!  I am heartbroken that I can not  be at tonight’s concert for the 3rd-6th grade. It is my daughter’s graduation from grad school and might be the last graduation I attend until grandchildren!! I know Helen Weston has once again put together an amazing show.

Summer building projects at FCS

Screen Shot 2017-05-18 at 7.46.08 PM.png

This summer we will be reconfiguring the driveway to separate the parent traffic from the buses during high traffic hours. The school board has been working with Tyler Billingsly and engineer from Eastern Engineering to develop a plan that is user friendly and budget friendly. We expect the construction to take place during the summer months for minimum disruption.

Also we will be replacing the roof on the modular, adding a handicapped accessible cement stoop to the art room door and complete maintenance on the windmill.
