spudbuds2016SPUD BUDS: In the Spring of 2016, the kindergarten class made “Spud Buds.”  They measured their potatoes, drew faces on them and put them in brown paper bags and left them in the back of their cubbies. Students peeked at them and saw all of their sprouts, planted them and took them home with a note that they could be put in the ground and would grow more.   This cute, 1st grade, red-headed farmer, Isaac, and his family enjoyed his potatoes in October 2016.

YOUNG AMERITOWNE is an outstanding educational program that our 5th graders took part in on Friday, March 11, 2016.  This day is one of the big highlights of our year. This learning tool helps us to teach business, economics and free enterprise in a fun and hands-on way. In addition, Young AmeriTowne introduces students to concepts such as supply and demand, job skills and work habits, banking procedures, democratic processes, civic consciousness, and career awareness. The program culminates with the students running a city for the day at the Young American's Bank in Cherry Creek.  This field trip is long remembered by all!

FROM THE STUDENTS THEMSELVES:

fces 3picExcerpts from 5th grade essays:

"FCA prepares me for life.  To start with, Teachers at FCA support you in whatever you do.  For example in basketball they come and watch me.  They are trustworthy and honest in what they do.  Though, super loving to everyone including me!!!  Next, safety here is very important."

"'Hey dad even though I'm only in 5th grade I feel ready for college' I said. 'I know that's why we send you here' he said.  As long as I stay at FCA, I will be prepared for life.  In the first place, the Christianity is truly amazing because we are allowed to worship freely.  The teachers are TREMENDOUS, TRUSTWORTHY, and they help bring me feel closer to God."

"FCA always has the best subjects and recommended levels.  The school staff test you to see what level you're in, and has special subjects including Art, Tech, and PE.  FCA lots of advanced classes Like high math and science.  FCA helps me prepare in academics for the future."

"Some of my favorite parts are having chapel every Thursday because we have prayer in chapel. Furthermore, there are great people to be friends with!  The things I like about my friends are that they are all fun and very smart."
