We are excited to bring back Make-A-Wish/Kids For Wish Kids®! FNES has been raising money for this cause for almost 20 years. In the past, we have been very successful with contributing to Make-A-Wish/Kids For Wish Kids®. The school will be sponsoring various fundraisers until the end of the 2016-2017 school year.
Each teacher will have a container set up in their classroom for the students to donate money. At the end of the month, each class will total their donations. The class with the most donations gets a popsicle party during their recess. This fundraiser will run from January to Febrary. Please help FNES continue to contribute to the Make-A-Wish/Kids For Wish Kids® programs.
FNES Students and Staff are hard at work reading and learning! Families can help do their part by reading at home with their children. November 1st is Family Literacy Day and several of our staff members have created videos of them reading with their families. Click on the link to your right (under the Quick Links column) to view!
After you have watched the videos, we would like to invite you and your family to participate by making your own family literacy video in your own home. Each video should be no more than 2 minutes long if possible. You may use your camera, phone, iPad, etc. to film your video with your family. To upload your video, click on the title of this news story. If you are uncomfortable with the technology aspect, come in any Friday during the month of November with your favorite book and a volunteer will film you reading with your child.
► No student check outs after 2:15 PM.
► Parents are welcome to have lunch with their child, but remember that you will sit with your child only. When you bring outside food, it will be only for you and your child.

Students in Mr. Soriano's 5th Grade science class were using different kinds of cookies to show how sedimentary rock is created in layers over millions of years. They also explained how coal, oil, and natural gas is created within the sedimentary rock. After the lab was over, students were allowed to eat their cookies!
Students in Mrs. Rethaber's 2nd Grade class helped Mrs. Chilek's 4th Graders make a math lesson come to life by having a bake sale. The 4th Graders are learning about profit, so the best way to do this was to bring this lesson to life. Students worked hard to figure out exactly what expenses they would have for a real bake sale and then set their prices. Bring on the 2nd Grade customers! The 2nd Graders used prior knowledge about money to buy items at the sale and had to figure out if they could afford any other items. At the end of the sale, 4th Graders had to calculate their receipts, find the difference from their expenses and see if they had any profit. Students experienced real world applications of no profit and great profit!
Students in Mrs. Bauer's 4th Grade reading class are using iStation to review and reinforce text structures and main idea lessons. Each student is able to work at their own pace to complete their individualized reviews.
5th Grade students traveled to Camp Honey Creek in Hunt, Texas September 20th – 22nd and 26th – 28th, where they stayed three days and two nights while learning science in an outdoor setting. The FNES fifth graders while at science camp participated in several activities including Change Over Time, where they learned about sedimentary rock and searched for fossils; they also studied Freshwater Ecology, Plant Ecology, and Astronomy as well as many other science related topics where they learned to apply their knowledge to a real world setting.
FNES students and staff would like to thank all of our sponsors and chaperones for supporting this exciting learning opportunity, we could not have the chance without them.
