Digital Citizenship Curriculum
Our school believes strongly that along with academic standards our children need to be taught how to be good digital citizens.  Mrs. Petrillo along with our classroom teachers teach the following citizenship lessons in the following grades: Click here.  Our students learn how to be safe on the internet, what cyberbullying is and what the rings of responsibility are when using technology among many other lifelong skills.  Please ask your child's teacher or Mrs. Petrillo if you are interested in hearing more about this curriculum.

Morning Start
PLEASE make sure you are dropping your children off in the kiss and go lanes in the morning.  ALL students need to enter through the front door, even our students in the mobiles.  We do not have supervision on the street at Lovington for drop off so please help us keep our students safe and enter through the front door.

FSE Expedition Coming Soon!
Parents! This year’s main fundraiser is the FSE Expedition! It’s a 9-day program that kicks off with a Pep Rally on Sept 7th. Then families will have time to get pledges for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps), and we’ll celebrate at the Fun Run on Sept 16th. With our big goal to raise funds for hanging projectors, a new engineering curriculum, and creative spaces, we asked the Fun Run experts at Boosterthon to power our Fun Run and make it more profitable, easier, and fun.

Students will also experience an amazing character theme, BACKYARD BOX OFFICE! It’s a movie theme all about making a difference by getting into character. Our students will learn from five REAL kid difference-makers. From inventors, to world-class speakers, to business owners, to world-record holders, these five kids will inspire our students to practice the five “Character Acts” and make a difference in our community.

Donations will go toward our fundraising items, and to the entire 9-day experience. So please help our school by reaching out to sponsors. Also, all families are invited to come out and cheer on your student at the Fun Run! Thank you for your support--FSE PTO
