The Season of Giving

The FSH holiday gift shop was bustling with shoppers today. Students had a ball dropping by to purchase presents for their family members. The gift items were donated by members of our community and were priced at $1 each. We were extremely lucky to have so many helping hands working together to make the Holiday Gift Sale possible this year. Thank you to those who donated toys, gifts, supplies, and food, and to our PTO and wonderful volunteers who were gracious enough to donate their time. A special thank you Katy Ruckdeschel, Diane Rouine, and Vicky Ryan for planning and organizing this wonderful event.

Egg Drop

Grades 3/4 worked on a design challenge in science class. Students made inventive casings to protect an egg during a drop from the roof. Mr. Ken took the eggs up to the roof and dropped them one by one. Students watched from below with excitement and a little nervousness to see if plastic bags acting as parachutes, styrofoam, cloth, and many other materials worked to protect the eggs. Many eggs survived the drop.

Grades 1/2 and 3/4 recently visited Bartram's Gardens. Grades 1/2 toured the arboretum, botanical gardens, and the historic John Bartram's house.
