IMPORTANT REMINDERS

Cardboard Creativity Day- October 19th


On Friday, October 19th, students are invited to create their own cardboard game to share with their class. This optional activity encourages students to just create – explore building a game with cardboard – one where others can visit and play. Students will design and build their games at home and bring them to school on the morning of October 19. We will play the games during WIN time for each grade level. Here are few things to remember:

 

1. All games must be taken home at the end of the day on October 19.

 

2. Prizes are not necessary for the games, but if your child has prizes as a part of their game, they are not allowed to use candy or anything edible. This is to ensure that our children stay safe. The joy should be in the game.

 

3. Due to a small amount of space in the courtyard, the playing of the games during WIN is a student only event.

 

4. For inspiration, please visit http://cainesarcade.com/.

Socktober 

 

Hi FTE Families, we are still in need for sock donations. Please help put socks on the feet of our local homeless community.  A warm pair of socks can warm someone's heart!

Happy October parents! Want to send out a quick note to get everyone excited about the upcoming Science Fest and answer a few questions that you may have.

 

What is STEAM Fest?

 

STEAM Fest is a half-day annual event hosted at the Forest Trail Elementary campus focusing on various science disciplines. Over thirty presenters deliver a short 45-minute course on their subject of expertise.

 

This year's STEAM Fest is on Friday, November 2, 2018.

 

All students rotate through two courses that they and their parents choose for them to attend, much like one does in college. The course catalog is available on the Forest Trail Booster Club website. All courses are free for students to attend, as all students are required to choose courses they want to take. Regular classes are suspended on STEAM Fest day, so participation in STEAM Fest is both mandatory and fun!
