My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. II Corinthians 12:9

Picture Day
Picture Day is scheduled for Thursday, October 25. Students are not required to wear their uniforms that day, but clothing needs to reflect the standards of the school.

Kindergarten students do not usually have school on Thursdays, but we are planning to have kindergarten on Thursday, October 25. We will not have class for them on Friday, October 26.

Enclosed is an order form from the photographer. Fill out a separate form for each child, along with payment. If you have more than one child, please do not combine payments. Each order envelope should contain payment for the given child.

The photographer will need the order form and payment on picture day, so please make sure your child brings this to school on or before October 25.

Lost and Found
All lunch boxes, shoes, and sweaters that have been found in the school and gym are being kept in the office. If you are missing something, please come to the office and claim it. At the end of each month, we will display these items. If they remain unclaimed, we will take them to a clothing distribution center.

Health Room Emergency Cards
If you have not yet returned the health room emergency cards, please take time to fill them out and send them with your child to the school office. These forms contain important information that we need when your child is sick or has an emergency.

FCS Breakfast
An all-you-can-eat fundraiser breakfast is planned for Saturday, October 27, from 6:00-10:30 at the school. Costs are covered by your donations. Invite your relatives, friends, and neighbors for a delicious, fun way to start your Saturday.

Parent-Teacher Fellowship
We look forward to meeting all the parents at our Parent-Teacher Fellowship on Monday, October 1st at 7:30 pm. We will be holding this event on the third floor of the school. Ralph Rice will be our guest speaker.

One Call Now
If anyone wishes to add a phone number to One Call Now, please let the office know.

FCS Volleyball Tournament
The tournament will be held November 2 and 3 in the FCS gym.
Come and cheer on the Lady Fairview Falcons. It should be an exciting day of volleyball competition.

Staff Feature
My name is Lavina King. I am a monitor in LC 1. I am from Lancaster County and attend Charity Christian Fellowship. Before I moved to Reading, I worked in the kitchen at Dutchway Farm Market.
 A favorite verse of mine is Matthew 11:28, Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 
I enjoy working with children, and one of my goals is to become more like Jesus.

School Weather Cancellations
As winter weather draws near, we would like to remind you of several ways you can find out if there is a delayed opening, early closing, or school cancellation. Tune in to radio stations WDAC (94.5 FM), WBYN (107.5 FM), or WEEU (8:30 AM). You may also go to wfmz.com and click on the school closings link. We will send out a Once Call Now message around 6:00 am.

 Children Live What They Learn
When children live with criticism,
They learn to condemn.
When children live with hostility,
They learn to fight.
When children live with shame,
They learn to feel guilty.
When children live with tolerance,
They learn to be patient.
When children live with encouragment,
They learn confidence.
When children live with security,
They learn to have faith.
When children live with fairness,
They learn justice.
When children live with praise,
They learn to appreciate.
When children live with approval,
They learn to like themselves.
When children live with acceptance and friendship,
They learn to find love in the world.
