 Visits and yet...more...snow...

  Possibly our shortest week ever! But when we were together, there was SO much accomplished. We began the week by welcoming our students' beloved Grandparents & Special Friends. It was well attended and gave us the opportunity to share what we do with some of the most important people in our students' lives! Thanks to everyone who helped to make the annual morning event a great success!

This week also featured our  Spring Book Fair  which was set up and (wo)manned by a small army of MFCS moms. Thanks to that team, and to Laura W. for another great book fair.

This is Week 1 of our  2018 Calendar Raffle Sales PeriodIt takes our whole MFCS village working together to meet our fundraising goal for our annual spring school-based fundraiser. This year, Lisa Z, the MFCS Parent Coordinator of the Raffle Calendar Fundraiser, has set the goal at $15,000. Please be sure to help out by selling the calendars sent home in backpacks with each child. Speak to friends, families, neighbors and colleagues to help us meet our goal. Thank you!

We got a GREAT response to our call for volunteers for our 2018 Field Day Committee. There is just 1 spot left... please click here to sign up.

Please remember to call us at (603) 232-5176, email the office or your child's teacher, or send a note in with your child.


Is your child missing a pair of gloves, hat or sweatshirt?!

They're probably at school!

Next time you come into school, please check out the coat rack and lost & found bin in the entry hallway.  Anytime there are unclaimed articles of clothing at school, this is where we put them.  The coat rack and bin are both  FULL

After School Programming & Updates

LetgoYourMind After School Program begins  Wednesday, March 21st

Each week the Letgo Your Mind Teacher will discuss key engineering and physics concepts and demonstrate how special LEGO® elements work together. Students might make vehicles that can travel 50 feet under their own power or glide down a ramp. They will use gears to make things move or spin! Students will create LEGO® builds with challenges to make them more complex. Participants will use LEGO® pieces that move with gears and a motor. Each session you'll take home lots of new ideas and fun memories, but not your LEGO® creations.  Please click here to view the flyer.
