Our National Honors Society students are sponsoring a Food Drive benefitting United Food Bank in Mesa. Students are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items (no glass). The food drive will end on November 22nd, and there will be a pizza party for the class that brings in the most food items. 
Hearing and Vision Screening: Monday, November 14th
The state of Arizona requires that students in certain grade levels/categories receive a hearing and vision screening. We ask that students in the noted categories have the screening done at the school or provide written documentation of the hearing/vision results from their physician. This screening is available to any student whose parents would like them tested at a reasonable cost. Please see the Hearing/Vision Consent form coming home with your last week. The deadline to return this form has been extended to this Thursday, November 10th. Please call the school office with any questions.

Welcome to the season of giving and thankfulness! As we move through this season, FCS would like to take a special day to come together and celebrate. On Wednesday, November 23rd all Faith families are invited to join the students at school for a few events. The sanctuary will open at 10:00 to begin the festivities with the Elementary Heritage Day Parade at 10:15 followed by a time of Praise and Worship at 11. We will also spend some time sharing what we are thankful for. After that we will head outside for a picnic. All students K-12 will be dismissed at 12:30 to leave for the Thanksgiving weekend. We look forward to spending the day together!

For the picnic, you can order a bagged lunch for your students AND for any family members that will be attending using the FACTS Family Portal as you do for other hot lunches. Families planning to attend and order sandwiches for themselves can do so by increasing the quantity on the FACTS order form for your child (look for PICNIC, PIE and PRAISE on Nov 23rd).  Lunch is $6 per person which includes your choice of ham or turkey sandwich, chips, a water bottle, and a personal pie.  The deadline to order is Thursday, November 17th.  Any students who do not order lunch should bring a bagged lunch that does not require preparation. Everyone will be offered a personal pie regardless of if they order a sandwich or not, and there will be no charge. We look forward to spending the day together!
Save the date and invite your friends and family to come enjoy the show!
