    Students in K though 3rd, the Early Engineers LEGO Club, will explore STEM through engaging hands on projects while learning robotics using the LEGO WeDo Robots. 

    Students in 4th through 6th will learn how to build, program and design the LEGO EV3 robots and have the opportunity to compete on a Flagstone Elementary FIRST LEGO League (FLL) robotics team. 

    These STEM after school clubs generate a world of curiosity within the minds of the children and truly leave lasting impressions filled with inspiration! Space is limited. Registrations for the Flagstone LEGO STEM After School Clubs will take place at a Parent Informational Meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 30th, right after school.  Plan to come and see these terrific little robots for yourself!

Morning Drop Off
The week we have consistently had 30-40 students waiting outside our front door without adult supervision as early as 8:40.  Please make sure that students are not dropped off prior to 8:55, a good rule is to plan on dropping them off by 9am.  Please help us by following this rule and ensuring the safety of our students.  Let me know if you have questions.

Letter from Our School Nurse
Dear Parents,
We have had reports  of Hand Foot and Mouth Disease  in your school. 
Please review the attached information about this condition to help decrease further spread of illness and keep students and staff healthy at school.
Infectious diseases can be spread in a variety of ways, please follow these recommendations:
● Wash your hands. Thorough and frequent handwashing is a proven & effective way to prevent many common infections.  Use alcohol based hand sanitizers if soap and water are not available.
● Contain your coughs and sneezes. Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough. To avoid contaminating your hands, cough or sneeze into a tissue or into the crook of your elbow.
● Stay home when you are sick. Stay home for at least 24 hours after fever is gone (without  medication!!) to lessen the chance of infecting others. Pleaser refer to student and staff attendance guidelines also attached to this email.
If you have further questions, please contact your health care provider or your school nurse consultant ( contacted listed below) 
Thank you for collaborating and working together to keep all students safe and healthy!

Beth Mackin RN, BSN

The Great American Eclipse-- August 21, 2017 On Monday, August 21, FSE students and staff will be given the amazing opportunity to view the solar eclipse via live streaming in their classrooms.  For the safety of all students, all recesses will be held indoors on this day.  We are asking that parents of our part-time kindergarten classroom pick up their children in the classrooms to avoid the temptation of looking up at the sun while waiting for pickup.  While the length of the eclipse will last from 10:23am to 1:15pm that day, the maximum viewing time will be at 11:47am.  If you would like to live stream the eclipse, visit  We hope you’ll talk to your children about this once-in-a-lifetime event!

Dear FSE Parents, We are hoping that all parents can come to our Back to School Night tonight from 6 to 7 pm.  We will have two sessions one from 6:00-6:25 pm and one from 6:30-7:00 pm in each classroom.  If you do decide to bring younger siblings please be mindful of the noise level when the teacher is presenting the material.  We hope to see all of you here!
Updates This year we adopted a new math program called enVision.  After much research and discussion we felt that this program was the best fit for our students based on feedback from parents and the achievement of our students. Your child's teacher will give you access to the online games and materials to help your children at home with their math achievement.  Please reach out to your child’s teacher should you have any questions regarding this new program. ROCKS: We have refined and updated our ROCKS curriculum to focus more on a growth mindset rather than punitive measures in our teaching of these important character traits.…
