November 14-18, 2022
School pictures are in and will be coming home with students today. Be sure to check your child's folder/backpack for those sweet smiling faces! 
Later this week you will receive your child's Progress Reports by email. These are a notification of how your student is doing midway through the quarter while there is still plenty of time for improvement.  The grades are an indication of the student's progress at this time - not a final grade.  Please refer to the comments for ways to improve if necessary or contact the teacher for more information.
A gift card order will be placed tomorrow night, 11/15.  Orders may be placed online before 8pm Tuesday at using enrollment code 48A9697251L6.  With the holidays approaching, choose to use gift cards for your shopping and gifting needs to benefit our school and earn money for your tuition.   

Watch for huge bonuses on e-cards coming this week, Nov. 17-18!

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. 
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 some exciting news about how God is leading FCS. After that we will head outside for a picnic. All students K-12 will be dismissed at 12:45 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 THIS 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!
