The Terry Fox Run is quickly approaching!  Our run/walk day is Thursday September 25th, during the last block (2:00 – 3:15) of the day.  The pledge forms were sent home yesterday.  Please ask family and friends to sponsor you and help support Terry’s dream.  Our school goal is $3000…we can do it Falcons!

Library classes

September 10, 2014 by · No Comments · Uncategorized

Our regular library classes have begun this week at Fieldcrest.  Please refer to your student’s agenda or classroom newsletters to remember when your child’s library day is.  Every class from kindergarten to grade 8 will be on the five day cycle when it comes to library classes so the day of the week will not always be the same for library.  Kindergarten students will receive a library bag with a handout detailing library day and library policies.  Please help your student to remember to return their library book or books on their specific day so that we do not have disappointed students.

We made it!

We hope that everyone enjoyed their first week back to school and that our junior kindergarten students had a very successful first two days of school.  The first week is done and hopefully everyone gets lots of rest this weekend to get back into routines. Please check our school blog often for upcoming events and to see what is going on at Fieldcrest.
