12-15-16 FSE Thursday Blast

Dear FSE Families,
I hope you all have a wonderful break and a very safe and happy holiday with your families and friends.  This past year has been an incredible one at FSE, and I feel so fortunate to be the leader of such a wonderful staff and group of students.  Our students, your children, continue to amaze me each day with their love of learning and kindness towards each other, so thank you for sharing them with us and with me, they keep me laughing and loving my job everyday.  I continue to be grateful for the incredible group of teachers, staff and parents that dedicate their days to making Flagstone great by volunteering in classrooms, running our PTO and putting on our numerous afterschool events.  It takes and entire community to create a great school for kids so I thank all of you for being a part of that work.  I wish you all the best this holiday season and hope you all enjoy this break.  See you all back here in 2017!

Happy Holidays!
Kelli Smith, FSE Principal

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.
