Hot Lunch: Melissa and Jenna will be serving hot lunch on Wed., Oct. 31.  The menu includes hot Ham and Cheese buns, French Fries, Jello with fruit, Chocolate pudding, Bars and Cookies.

Advance Notice:  The week of Oct. 29 will be Young Reader’s Week.

Reminders: 1) The Family Fun Night is being planned for Friday, November 2.  Note: You do not have to find 6 people for a volleyball team – you can sign up individually, as a couple, group of 4, etc, and we will add others to your team who have signed up individually also.  There is one week left to sign up for all tournaments and games.  Talk to Jenn or Pam for more info on this – thanks!
2)      Continue to save Campbell’s labels, box tops, milk moola, cell phones, cameras, towers and ink cartridges, and bring these items to the school kitchen.

Conferences: Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled for Tues, Nov. 6.  The schedule is printed on the back of the memo.  If you have a conflict with your scheduled time, please contact Mr. VanderVeen.

Report Cards:  Friday is the end of the first marking period.  Report cards will be sent home next Wednesday, Oct. 31.

From the library committee: We have just started a DVD section in the library and they are now available for check-out. There are a few guidelines regarding the use of the DVDs, and please discuss these with your children. Because of the limited number available at this time, we ask that you follow these recommended guidelines.

1) One DVD to be checked out per child. 2) DVDs will be checked out for no more than 2 weeks. Please be sure to return on or before the listed due date. 3) Any lost items should be reported to Kathie or Melissa and a fee will be determined. 4) If there is a problem with the DVD, leave a note on the case or be sure to mention it to Kathie or Melissa.
It is our goal and desire that these may be enjoyed by parents and children alike as they grow in their knowledge of God’s wondrous creation and the history of the world. If anyone has DVDs in their homes that they wish to donate to the library, we would gladly accept those. Bear in mind, we are only looking for documentary and nature-type DVDs (History Channel, Nat’l Geographic, PBS, etc.) If you have something you would like to donate, let Melissa know. These would become library property and will not be returned. Thank you!

Cinnamon Rolls: The 8th grade class of FCS is selling cinnamon rolls.  Cost is $6 for six rolls including cream cheese frosting OR $5.50 for just six rolls.  Detailed instructions will be included.  If you are interested, please contact Andrea Hoksbergen (  Please place your order by Friday evening, at the Fellowship Supper.
