This year Flagstone will be helping Douglas County High School to sponsor a 13 year-old boy named Cory.  His wish is to go to Disney World!   As a Douglas County Feeder, we are striving to pass our goal of $40,000 with the help of Castle Rock businesses and other DCHS feeder schools.
  • Throughout the week Student Council has planned different spirit days to help Cory get to Disney World!  
    • Monday, January 23rd- Penny Wars! Classes are encouraged to bring in their loose change/coins.  
    • Tuesday- Everyone wear red!  Red is Cory’s favorite color! From 3:00-3:30 DCHS students will lead an assembly for students. Penny Wars continues!
    • Wednesday- Students are encouraged to donate a dollar to wear a hat all day. Penny Wars continues!
    • Thursday- Students are encouraged to wear basketball/football shirts (Cory’s favorite teams are the Broncos and the Lakers). Penny Wars continues!
    • Friday- Disney World Day! Students are encouraged to dress as their favorite Disney character or wear Disney attire. Last day for Penny Wars!
    • Wish Week Restaurants--visit these restaurants
  • Kindness Campaign Update


We hope you had a wonderful Christmas and have had a successful return to the second half of the school year.  The weather has certainly made that return challenging!

A flier went out today to Flagstone families announcing the return of LEGO Robotics Club for Jan/Feb.  We will be signing up young LEGO Engineers next week, Thursday, Jan 19th, right after school while launching our return to club meeting with the kids.  For all you who were in first semester robotics, your children have first priority for a spot to attend Flagstone LEGO Robotics Club.  If you have friends who are interested in the lcub for their children, be sure to send them this email and tell them to send us a note.

Because you have already filled out the paper work, to hold a spot in the LEGO Robotics Club for the next 6 week session, please respond to this email by Tuesday, Jan 17th, and plan to bring your club fee of $75 to the first meeting next Thursday, Jan 19th.  As before, checks will be made out to Robotics. how.  

We will sign your child up and plan for them to attend the first session next Thursday, a dynamite kick off for the kids!

Have an awesome weekend and we look forward to hearing from you.

Matthew and Kathy Collier

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!

8-24-17 FSE Thursday Blast

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.…
