  • Re-enrollment for the 2022-23 school year is ongoing. To begin the re-enrollment process, please contact carla-boxill@fcs.school or visit https://fcs.school/re-registration/ Re-registration is not complete without payment of the $300 registration fee. Some classes are filling up, so it is important to re-register as soon as possible.
  • Lost and found items will be displayed on the front walkway next week. Anything left at spring break will be donated to a local charity. There are many unclaimed FCS fleece and sweaters there!

Easter is right around the corner. The building is starting to look like spring with themed projects and art work. As a Christian school, during the spring season we celebrate and remember the resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ! I’m so thankful for God’s sacrificial work on my behalf and His plan for my salvation. Let’s celebrate Easter together!

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. ~Romans 3:23-25a

Have a great weekend!
