The staff at FES believe that play is a very important part of education. That’s why we have a morning recess from 8:20 – 8:35 and a midday recess from 12:30 – 1:00. Here you see a collaborative project where students created “Heart Island” when the sun (finally) came out after a few days of ice and rain.

FES is dedicated to educating the whole child. Part of this is allowing students to learn about and express themselves creatively. We are thrilled to have Mark Ragonese join us again for another art project this week. This installation focuses on the characteristics that FES students identify within themselves as something they project outward to the greater community.

Do you wonder why your child’s math homework looks so different from what you brought home in elementary school?

Then join us for an interactive and fun evening! Learn from the FES staff how the focus has shifted in mathematics instruction and why we do what we do. Play some of the same math games your children play.

On Friday December 14th, students at FES learned about how people around the world celebrate winter holidays. One of the countries students learned about was Germany. A big tradition in Germany is baking and decorating gingerbread. We are so lucky to have a connection with Frederick’s Pastries through our third grade teacher, Ms. Robert. Sue from Frederick’s came to FES with homemade gingerbread and decorating tools for the kids to have some hands on experience like the professionals.
