Many thanks to first grade team of teachers and our 1st grade parents for you efforts at home with the 'floats'! From Team FKS to all of our families, we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and enjoyable holiday weekend.

As part of recognizing Native American Heritage Month, our K-5 students attended a PTA provided assembly today titled 'Ways of the Lenape', in which students learned how the Lenape lived 500 years ago on the same land we do today. Students learned about and experienced the tools, clothing, toys, games, medicine, and music that were part of the Lenni Lenapes’ daily lives. It was also a treat for our grades 3-5 students that the assembly was held in the Kossmann building! The reactions of those who went through Kossmann and have not been back in a while were really fun to hear. Many thanks as always to our PTA and Assemblies Chair, Mrs. Rafter, for bringing us these engaging learning opportunities.

Last week, Mrs. Sokol, Mrs. Antonov, and Mrs. Condron coordinated Mix It Up FKS Day at Kossmann and Flocktown. Mix It Up Day has students sit with those they typically do not sit with at lunch. Students have questions to ask of those at their table to discover their interests and to see what they may have in common others. Mix It Up Day is an important activity for building community and connection. Thank you Mrs. Sokol, Mrs. Antonov, Mrs. Condron, our lunch supervisors, and classroom teachers for making Mix It Up Day a success!
