PTO Spring Fundraiser!!!!
Seeking Items and Services for PTO Spring Fundraiser
The FCS PTO is looking for items or services for our online silent auction. If you have a product or a skill that you are willing to donate, please contact us at email@example.com. Maybe you can offer a couple hours of carpentry, plumbing or landscaping services. Perhaps you put Martha Stewart to shame and can bake a killer apple pie or can bedazzle a pair of jeans like nobody's business. Whatever your skill, how about offering it up for auction? Afraid you don't have a skill or talent to share? No problem! You can still help us out by getting donations from others. Many hand will make light work and hopefully lots of money!

Integrated learning is alive and well at FCS!!
In Ms. Parson’s enrichment class, 5/6 students created banners to represent African symbols from countries they studied in social studies class. This also integrates with the January 4th trip to the Flynn to see Mother Africa—Khayelitsha, an African Dance troupe.
Speaking of integrated learning the whole school will be participating in learning about the birds of Ferrisburgh and their habitat as part of the school-wide theme “We Are Ferrisburgh”. The speakers who will be visiting FCS and materials for birdhouses are being funded by a grant from the Otter Creek Audubon Society. Thank you to the grant committee for approving our grant.
Attention Student savers...don’t forget that Wednesdays are banking days!
Vergennes Area Youth League registration is now open for tee ball, softball, and baseball. Register now before it closes. Registration closes March 4, 2017. Please see attachment in the backpack with details on how to register.
We have been given a federal Grant for “Fresh Fruits and Veggies”. This grant allows students to try new and different kinds of produce that might be too expensive to serve as part of our regular program. Fresh blackberries, blood oranges from Spain and other interesting fruits and vegetables will be part of a “try it” snack that will be offered to all students on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. For most grades these are served later in the afternoon with the purpose of introducing our students to a wide range of interesting fruits and vegetables. There is an information sheet about the new foods and students can rate the foods as well. What a great way to learn and be healthy!
