Updates and Happenings 

  • 8th Grade Graduation Reminders:
    • At 8:45 a.m. on Tuesday, June 14, we'll have the 8th graders gather in the front of the school on the grass, and the FCS community will gather around them and offer prayers as they leave their FCS time and enter high school.  We invite anyone -- grandparents, parents, students, teachers -- who wants to join us to meet us on the grass in front of the school. Some students have been with us since PreK and some we were privileged to meet just this year.  We know the Lord has great plans for them.
    • 8th grade dismissal (only) is at 11:45 am on Tuesday, June 14.

I’m so excited to spend time with the FCS community at the Spring Fling tomorrow. It’s such a blessing to be coming out of quarantine and beginning to normalize Covid with a return to a place of community again. I want to thank you, our committed families, for staying with us these last two years. Because of your faithfulness and support, FCS is a thriving community with much growth anticipated for next year. I hope to see you all tomorrow at the spring fling from 3-7 pm!

He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is the key to this treasure. ~Isaiah 33:6
