October Newsletter

Picture Day
Picture day is scheduled for Thursday, October 23. Students are not required to wear their uniforms that day, but clothing must reflect the standards of the school. Kindergarten students do not usually have school on Thursday, but we are planning to have kindergarten on Thursday, October 23. We will not have class for them on Friday, October 24. An order form will be sent home. Fill out a separate form for each child, along with the 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 in to school on or before October 23.

FCS Breakfast
An all-you-can-eat fundraiser breakfast is planned for Saturday, November 8, 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 Tuesday, October 7, at 7:30 pm. This event will take place on the third floor at school. Ralph Rice was scheduled to come, but he had to cancel due to illness. We have an exciting evening planned. Make plans to be here.

Volleyball Tournament
The tournament will be held October 31 and November 1 in the FCS gym. Come and cheer on the Lady Fairview Falcons. It should be an exciting weekend of volleyball competition.

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) or WEEU (830 AM). You may also want to go to wfmz.com and click on the school closings link. If we have a cancellation, we will send out a One Call Now message around 6:00 am.

Calendar Changes
We will be having school on October 28. We will notify all of the school districts transportation departments of this change. The trash-a-thon fundraiser scheduled for November 21 has been moved to November 20. The details will be shared at the parent-teacher fellowship and in the November newsletter.

The Youth Camping Trip was very enjoyable for everyone. We went to a nice cabin about 2 hours away from here. We had lots of food and no shortage of chips. We played lots of games. Saturday night it rained and got really windy, but besides that, we had good weather. Sunday morning we had church. Isaiah Fox talked about being a good influence on the people around you. Then we ate lunch, packed up, and headed home. -Ryan Fox
