-Message from the FES Library:
 
Students at FES are encouraged to keep reading for fun during the summer months. Students may sign up for the summer reading program at Falmouth Memorial Library beginning on June 17th.
 
Summer reading lists will be sent home with students during the last week of school. The lists have suggested titles that students may enjoy reading; they are not required. We encourage students to read a variety of genres, listen to audio books, read magazines, picture books, graphic novels and more. Summer is a great time to kick back and read for pleasure.
 
The summer reading lists are also available online on the FES Library website: http://mrspotter.edublogs.org/recommended-reading-lists/
 
Students at FES are participating in the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge this summer. Our goal is to read 1 million minutes as a school. Students may keep track of the number of minutes they read all summer long. Students recently received their screen names to login on the Scholastic website.

Have a great summer!
 
-Student Directory---Student directory forms have been mailed to middle and high school students and sent home in the backpacks of elementary school students.  If you have not received one and would like to have one, please contact Chantal Walker at 781-3637 or chantaljwalker@gmail.com
 
-Summer Spanish Packets for 1st - 4th Grades.  If your child would like a little packet to practice Spanish during the summer, please contact her/his Spanish teacher:  Ellen Lowery (elowery@falmouthschools.org) or Jeanne DiSciullo-Carpenter (jdisciullo-carpenter@falmouthschools.org).  
 
-Paperless registration is coming to FES-The Falmouth Elementary School will begin to utilize an online student registration and student data validation system, beginning with our new 2016-2017 school year. The system is a secure and green process, which allows the district to quickly obtain up to date information on your child. The online system will be used for all new student registrations. Returning students will use this system to verify demographic, emergency and medical information and allow you to update that information prior to the start of the new school year. The link for returning students will be emailed to all current parents in the near future. 
 
 -Seeking Summer Garden Volunteers: We are seeking volunteers for weeding and light maintenance in the FES Learning Garden this summer. Families will weed the area around the raised beds and the upper slope once per week, and you can sign up for as many weeks as work for you. There will also be other opportunities to be involved. Please e-mail Garden Manager Genna (genna.cherichello@falmouthschools.org) if you would like to be involved.
