November Song: Psalter # 48:1,2,7, & 8

Ice Skates & Hockey Sticks: It is our goal and desire to have an ice rink later this year. Please don’t procrastinate! In the next week or two, check that you have properly sized skates for each of your children and ensure that every kid has their own hockey stick. If you need to borrow one of school’s pairs, please let Mr. Vander Veen know within the next week.

Hunter Orange/Camo Day: Students are welcome to wear some hunter orange, camo, and accessories this Friday, Nov. 16 in honor of the opening of deer gun hunting season.

Keys: Parents and church members who have school keys are asked to bring them with them to school when stopping in throughout the school day. Although we have a buzzer system in place, there isn’t always someone in the office to buzz you in. Mr. Vander Veen may also be out visiting other classrooms and away from his room and not be able to buzz you in.

North Entry Door: During construction last school year, many of you became accustomed to using the north entrance to school. Now that this is no longer a main entrance, we have disengaged the locks ability to spin 3600. You can still get in and out of the doors as you like, you just won’t be able to leave them in the unlocked position with only your key. If trying to enter through this door, please also do not try to force a turn of the lock past 1800.

Scooters: For many years school has had about a dozen yellow scooters. They were moved to the warehouse to be stored during contraction and have since gone missing. If you know of their location, please let Mr. Vander Veen know as we would like to have them back.

Thanksgiving Break: Classes will Dismiss at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, November 21. If parents need bussing at 1:00 p.m., please contact the Public School office. School will be closed on Thursday, Nov. 22 and Friday, November 23.

FCS Apparel Forms: Please have these forms handed in by this Friday, November 16th. Forms can be handed in to Sandee or Jill.  We were made aware of a mistake of the 25th year logo and this will be fixed on the clothing. It will have EST 1994 instead of the years. Any questions please contact one of us. Thanks!

Christmas Program: The Christmas Program is scheduled for Friday, December 14.
