WEE Read Festival:
* The festival is geared toward ages 4 - 6th grades, but any students above 6th grade who are
interested are certainly welcome to attend!
* This is not a drop-off event; all children (FCDS students and otherwise) will need to stay with and be
supervised by an adult at all times.
* Concessions will be available for lunch time; the playgrounds will be closed all day.
* One of the elementary sessions is a how-to for creating e-books. In order to participate, students will
need to bring an iPad (Apple only - not an Android device) already downloaded with the "Keynote
and Pages" app. If you are not an "Apple family" or do now own an iPad, don't worry - there will be
plenty of other activities available for kids to choose from.

Parents as Partners is our school-wide volunteer program in which parents and families provide items and services we need to help complete events and special days at the school. By helping to offset these costs and time spent working, the PAP program allows us to keep our tuition low, while still offering a variety of fun events and special programs for our students.
LUNCH PRICES: $4.00 per lunch for all age LUNCHROOM MANAGER: Bridget Dlabaj
Meals are pre-ordered and pre-paid by the week. All orders for the following week must be turned in and paid for by Thursday of the current week.
This allows Ms. Bridget to accurately plan meals and quantities for the week. Students may pick and choose what days they participate in the lunch program. There is no need to buy lunch every day unless you wish to do so.
Monthly menus are available, and weekly order forms will be sent home in student folders. They may also be picked up from the trays next to the office. Orders need to be turned in to the Lunchroom box by the office by Thursday each week. PLEASE do not turn in late orders.
Checks should be made out to "Bridget Dlabaj." Cash payments are also accepted. You may also use PayPal; send payments to firstname.lastname@example.org. However you choose to pay, please make sure that you note your child's name on the payment so that Ms. Bridget knows which account to credit. Also, please do not pay for lunches with other school payments, as the lunch accounts go directly to Ms. Bridget and not through the school office.

Elementary Academic Competition:
* One of the formats we use is an online quiz app that allows students to compete against each other
in real time. On January 30 and January 31, students may bring a personal electronic device (phone
or tablet only) from home, WITH PARENT PERMISSION. The Kahoot! app needs to be downloaded
ahead of time and is free with both Apple Store and Google Play. The devices will be used ONLY for
quiz time. If your child does not have a device or if you would prefer they do not bring one to school,
they will be allowed to use one of the school's devices.
