FSE at Freddy's
    • Use this flier Freddy's Flier -- you can take a picture and show it on your smartphone.
    • If you show the flier on the evening of the 18th FSE PTO will get 15% of all the sales that show the flier.
    • We are preparing for our annual Fall Fundraiser right now!  Staff and PTO are working on planning this event and the first step is to work on getting shirts for the students.  We are launching our annual T-Shirt contest in May and are asking if any local companies would like to help sponsor this event by buying a portion of the cost of the shirts.  We already have a $750 donation from Keller Williams Action Realty-Kayfes Real Estate Services.  They will have a logo printed on the back of our shirts! We still need $750 dollars more to pay for the shirts.  Any other company that donates will also have a logo printed on the shirt.
FSE Lock Down Drill
    • We have a required lock down drill next week.  We talk with students about a possible animal getting into the building and we have to turn our lights out, lock our doors and get out of sight.  Let me know if you have any questions.
FSE Backpack program
    • Thank you to all who have donated to the backpack program! As the year winds down, it would be wonderful if we could stock the cabinets for the next school year. 
    • We are looking for items such as: goldfish, bars, fruit cups, applesauce, cereal, peanut butter, pasta noodles, pasta sauce, canned fruit or veggies, and baking mixes. 
    • Thank you so much for your help and continually support! :) 

Safety Issues
  • Please keep your students home until 8:55 since our campus is closed.  We are having some issues with students being unsafe with their bikes around 8:40 and others playing unsupervised on the playground.
Thank You!
  • FSE Staff would like to thank our wonderful PTO for their generosity in providing meals during conference nights.  The food was delicious and so thoughtful!  We appreciate you!

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! If you would like to check your child out…

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.…
