FSE Book Fair is Coming and we NEED your HELP!
Flagstone's Spring "Happy Camper" Book Fair will arrive soon.  Students and staff are looking forward to this event, and it is the perfect opportunity to purchase books for summer reading for your child.  All profits from this fair goes towards the purchase of new books for Flagstone's library.  We are looking for volunteers to set up the fair, decorate, help students with their "wish lists", restock product, run cash registers, and help in taking it all down and packing up on the last day.  Parents, grandparents, and high school students please take a minute to check out the attached sign up, and see where you might be able to help.  We need you to make this happen!

Fitness fundraiser for DCHS athletics: 
Please come support your children's future high school and have some family fun!

Support For Our DCHS Students
A group of DCHS students approached me and are working on a class project and asked if I could share.  Here is their information.

Summer Opportunities
Summer is a time to have fun, friends, and free time!  It is also important, though, to keep kids reading and writing throughout the summer in order to support their academic development.  Flagstone is again offering SUMMER LITERACY CAMP.  This camp provides your child with the opportunity to engage in direct reading and writing instruction daily and practice newly acquired skills.  Our theme this year is Nature!  This is open to any Douglas County School District students entering 1st through 6th grade and is taught by certified DCSD staff members.  It will be held June 12th to the 23rd from 8:30-11:30 am, Monday through Friday.  The cost for this two-week opportunity is $132 per child.  This is based on 10 students.  The price may be more or less depending on enrollment.  If you have any questions, please email Rachel Steppuhn at  Please register by May 24th here.  Click on Enrichment and we will be there. Thank you for supporting this summer opportunity for your learner.  We can’t wait to see you this summer!

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…

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.…
