Happy August, Wolves! As we head into the dog days of summer, it's time to start thinking about getting ready for a new school year. Maybe go to the library and get some good books, take a few notes or draw some pictures of what you see and hear when you're outdoors, journal some thoughts on the events of your summer, and start taking notice of all of the numbers that you encounter in every day life - such as the number of days until your first day of school (31 from today)! We are getting ready to have you back on September 1st!
The Flocktown Kossmann offices are closed today, July 1. Have a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend. Happy 4th of July!

We clapped out our 5th graders this morning at their last FKS dismissal, following a trip through the Kossmann building. We wish them well at LVMS and beyond. They are off to being a Panther, but they were Wolves first and always! Congratulations to a wonderful class, their teachers over the years, and of course their families.
FKS 5th graders offer their handmade, ceramic Hopeful Hearts as a symbol of hope to those in need serviced by local organizations. We were privileged to host and gift our hearts to representatives of the Fairmount F.D. Long Valley Rescue Squad, W.T.P.D, Smiles for Margaret, Sarah's Fight for Hope, and Dr. Turnamian representing our schools. Thank you Mrs. Martire and Mrs. Hemberger for your hard work to make this community service project a success. Thank you also to Mrs. Fessenden for the beautiful song.
