Weekly News Blast for the Week of February 4, 2019
Community Film Screening of
"Most Likely To Succeed" 
Join us on Monday, February 4 at 7 p.m. in the FHS Auditorium for a community film screening of Most Likely to Succeed

Most Likely To Succeed  is a thought-provoking documentary feature film that reveals the growing shortcomings of conventional education methods in today's innovative world. The film explores compelling new approaches that aim to revolutionize education as we know it, inspiring school communities to reimagine what students and teachers are capable of doing. To date, MLTS has screened for thousands of audiences around the world, igniting conversations and empowering change along the way. 

Outdoor Recess
All children will go out for recess as long as the wind chill temperature is above 20 degrees. The fresh air and freedom of movement is an excellent way to give students the needed break from the classroom and prepares them for a productive afternoon of learning.
 
So please make sure your child has a warm coat, hat, gloves and boots if appropriate!
 
Thank you for your cooperation!
