This is National School Bus Safety Week. This morning, coordinated by the WTS Transportation Department, we conducted our fall bus evacuation drill and held 30 minute programs by grade level, grades K-5, on bus safety and bus behavior. Our Wolves enjoyed evacuating from the back door of the bus - even in the cold! Many thanks to Mr. Todd, Mrs. Radossich, Mr. Backer, and our FKS staff.
Students watch as the trout eggs are placed in their new home for the next 8 months on FKS Trout Day 2022.
🐟The trout eggs arrived yesterday by volunteers from the Pequest Hatchery to much fanfare by our 5th graders. They returned to their classrooms for a livestream introduction from the Main Office aquarium by Mr. Jones - WTS STEM Coach, former FKS 5th grade teacher, long time FKS Trout Project Coordinator, and trout whisperer. 😄
1st and 2nd graders at recess cheered on third and fourth grade. In all, it was a great day to be an FKS Wolf! Hats off to our teachers and custodians - Mr. Paparella and Mr. Hardy. And many thanks to all of our families who attended in person or watched the live stream for your support. We'll see you again on Friday afternoon, 10/28 for Halloween 2022! Details for that event will go out later next week. Enjoy the weekend!
