This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

Transportation Requests
Enclosed you will find transportation request forms for those students needing bus transportation next school term. Please fill out these forms and return them to the office by May 18. If you receive a form and don’t need it, please return it to the school office along with a note stating that you don’t need transportation.

Uniform Exchange
If you know that your children will grow out of their uniforms by the next school year, please send their uniforms to school. Mrs. Fox will exchange each uniform for a different size. Due to the fact that many of the high school students will be leaving for National Convention on May 19, their uniforms may be brought in Wednesday, May 16. Elementary uniforms may be brought in Friday, May 25th .

Final Tuition Statement
In your envelope you will find your tenth and final tuition bill. This final bill is due May 18. You will notice that the Stanford Achievement Test cost has been added. Also, the PACE charges reflect the final two months so it may be higher than normal. If you receive a white statement along with your current yellow tuition bill, the amount on the white statement is what you owe to close out the year. Having your balance at $0.00 will help us pay our bills this summer.

Teacher Appreciation Week
National Teacher Appreciation Week is May 7-11. Take this opportunity to thank your child’s teacher for all they invest in your child’s life.

Field Day
Feel free to come and watch your children compete at Field Day on May 11. We will be starting around 9:00. You may take your children directly to West Reading Park. We expect to be finished by 12:30. You may take your children home with you then.

Students do not need to wear their uniforms, but clothing must reflect the FCS dress standard.

We would like to once again offer a free lunch to the students, but your help is needed to do this. If you are interested in donating food or money for the meal, please call Vonda Fox at 610-373-2413.

Awards Night
This year-end event will be held on the last day of school, May 25, at 7:00pm in the FCS gym. We encourage all students and parents to attend.

Regional Convention Winners
A list of Regional Convention award winners is posted on the school’s website. Go to www.fairviewchristianschool.com and click on the “awards” link.

Box Tops
Thank you for all the box tops you have been collecting and sending to school. Mrs. Rissler recently mailed in 2,296 and we received a check for $229.60

Hot Lunch
The last week of May, the 21st through the 25th, there will be no hot lunch served at school. This is the last full week of school and most of the high school students will be away at International Student Convention.

No School
A reminder that there will be no school on Thursday, May 24.

Physicals Required
Please remember to make an appointment for a physical for your children entering Kindergarten, Grade 7, and Grade 10 in the fall. If you need a physical form, please contact the office. The form must be completed by your doctor and returned to the school office before school starts in August.

You are invited to attend the FCS graduation ceremony in the school gym on Wednesday, May 30, at 7:00pm

Congratulations to the
