Dear FLCS family,
Another Championship! Congratulations to the boys basketball team and coaches, who Friday night won an unprecedented 3rd league championship in a row. That also makes four championships in the last five years. Great job, guys, and an exciting game last week.
Volleyball is next. Practices for boys and girls begin Monday, February 25th.
It’s Serve-A-Thon time! Serve-A-Thon was a huge success last year. The last day of school in June staff, students and some parents went out into the community and served in a variety of places and ways. Not only did we have a massively good time, but it was a great witness to those unfamiliar with our school. The sponsorship of those students by you and your friends and families helped us raise over $12,000 for very real school needs! With that outside-our-regular-budget money we were enabled to buy things that have a real impact on student learning – Smart Boards, microscopes, Chromebooks, gym equipment – and student safety.
So, we’re doing it again! We serve in June, but the process begins this month. Here’s the schedule:
- On Thursday, February 28th we will send a pack of 10 mailers home with the oldest child in each family. A letter will be included that explains everything you need to do, but the important thing for now is to begin collecting names and addresses of friends and family that you think might be willing to support FLCS financially by sponsoring your kids as they serve our community. Your mailers will be collected at the Talent Show on March 14th, so we’re asking you to address and stamp them by then.
- Talent Show Tryouts will be on Thursday, March 7th. I’ve already told your children, but please remind them: if they want to participate, they must be “performance-ready” on that date. We can’t accept, “I’ll be better after I practice more.” Decisions about who will be in the show will be made based solely on the tryouts. Tryouts are open to current FLCS students, full or part-time, and staff. Others may be included for the purposes of accompaniment or other needed support.
- The Talent Show (& Bake Sale) will be on Thursday, March 14th at 6:30 pm. This fun night for the whole family kicks off our Serve-a-Thon as families return their mailers. There’s a contest and prizes for the students raising the most money. The kids love the contest, so please don’t mail them yourself – we need to track them so we can give credit to the proper students. Also, we’ll be looking for baked good donations for the bake sale, so stay tuned to the memo for more details.
We’re excited to kick things off and looking forward to your participation!
