Our Spring production is coming soon! We are excited to be welcoming FCS students back to the stage. This year, we are diving into new territory with a play and dessert theater. We are excited to announce we will be performing “Every Little Crook and Nanny” under the direction of Mrs. Michelle Marx. The cast and crew have been selected, and they are busy with rehearsals. There will be two performances–Friday, May 19, at 6:30pm, and Saturday, May 20, at 2:30pm. Tickets are $12 each. For more information or to purchase tickets, call the school office at 815.652.4806.
Our annual Family Fun Night is quickly approaching. It is scheduled for Friday, March 10, and will be held in the Middle School/High School Gym. In preparation for this event, Mrs. K is welcoming donations of individually wrapped candy and little prizes (think McDonald’s Happy Meal toys or stuffed animals). The candy and prizes can be sent to school anytime between now and March 9. Family Fun Night is our annual fundraiser for the Creation Museum/Noah’s Ark field trip that 5th-8th grade students take once every four years. For more information, please contact Mrs. K.
Friday, February 10, is JERSEY DAY at FCS! For $1/student, Kindergarten through 12th grade can wear their favorite team’s jersey (or colors) plus receive a coupon for a FREE Culver’s Sundae. (Money can be turned in tomorrow at the beginning of the day to your child’s teacher for K-4th, and to the office or 1st hour teacher for 5th-12th.) All proceeds raised will go to help the Student Council with 2nd semester activities. The FCS Student Council thanks you for your support!
Family Fun Night is just around the corner! Our annual indoor carnival fundraiser has been scheduled for Friday, March 10, 2023. Currently, we are collecting new or pre-loved stuffed toys to be used as prizes that evening. Please send your clean “stuffies” to the school at your earliest convenience. We appreciate your help and generosity as we prepare for a wonderful evening together!

“For everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved.” Romans 10:13
During the weekly Elementary Chapel, we are spending each month focusing on a different Scripture. This month, we have been talking about Romans 10:13 and what it means to be saved. Because of God’s great love for each one of us, He sent His Son Jesus to be our Savior…forgiving our sins and giving us the hope of Heaven! What an amazing gift we have been given!
P.S. The picture is from chapel this week. We did a little paper tearing and created the cross. 🙂
