FSE News
Update on Letter Sent Wednesday Morning
Thank you to all the parents that reached out to me personally in regards to their questions around the two bullets found on our campus late Tuesday afternoon.  After much investigating it has been concluded that no other bullets were seen or have been found.  Of the half dozen students that were around the area when the bullets were found only three saw them while the rest did not.  My staff and I are continuing to be vigilant and will continue to follow up on any leads should they come up.  

Please continue to reach out to me at anytime for questions or concerns. My direct phone line is 303-387-5230 and my email is  I check my email regularly (up until I go to bed each evening) and any messages on my direct line go to my email.

I would encourage all FSE families to ensure you are getting your information on official FSE or DCSD social media sites, private sites and unofficial sites many times do not have accurate information and unnecessary confusion results.  Again, I am available and make every effort to respond promptly to any requests so please do not hesitate to reach out.

--Kelli Smith, FSE Principal

School Start Time
Please remember that school starts at 9:10, students are coming to school and waiting in the cold as early as 8:40.  Our doors do not open until 8:55 so please make sure your children are getting here between the window between 8:55 to 9:10.  We do not have supervison for students prior to 8:55.  If you have a preschool child and enter the building early please do not let other students into the building as you enter. Our policy continues to be that we do not open the door and let anyone in the building, they must ring the bell and sign in at the office.  Please let the office know if you have any questions.

Kindergarten Registration
Upcoming Event!
I am very excited to let you know that extreme adventurer Colin O'Brady will be coming to DCSD and Flagstone on January 18th to speak to our students about setting goals, persevering and accomplishing your dreams with hard work and determination.  He set the world record by climbing all the continents highest peaks and hiking to the north and south pole in just over 100 days.  If you are interested in hearing about this impressive young man here is a link to an interview that he did with CBS Sunday Morning back in March. 

Student Council Update:
The FSE Student Council will be participating in the Douglas County High School Wish Week from January 23rd-27th.  Here is a little information about what Wish Wish is:
Every year, Douglas County High School puts on an event called "Wish Week". Wish Week is a community wide fundraiser where we partner with the Make-a-Wish foundation to grant the wish of a child with a terminal illness. This year we are sponsoring a 13 year-old boy named Cory.  His wish is to go to Disney World!  Our aim as a Douglas County Feeder this year is to pass our goal of $40,000 with the help of Castle Rock businesses and DCHS feeder schools.
​Student Council is currently deciding on how FSE will participate.  More details will be communicated to families soon.​

Fellow 4th grade parents: Don't forget to register your child for the Every Kid in a Park program, a free pass for all of the national parks for 4th grade students and their families, valid until August 2017.
