From the Librarian’s Desk: In an effort to create a more interactive library experience for our students, we are building a makerspace in the library. We already offer LEGOs, Zoob, coloring, and origami centers. We would like to add several more options including Jenga, 25-100 piece jigsaw puzzles, Connect 4, and 2 bean bag chairs (for an independent reading center). If you would like to contribute to this project, please contact Mrs. Sheri Cooper for details at sheri.cooper@faithchristianacademy.net

FCA Good Neighbor Golf Classic:  It’s almost Tee Time! We rescheduled our golf tournament for Oct 1st.  So you still have time to dust off your golf shoes and join us on the greens, October 1st at Whitetail Golf Resort.  We still have room for a few players and door prizes!  You can register online at faithchristianacademy.net or click here to register.  For questions email jen.stanley@faithchristianacademy.net See you on the greens!

3rd Annual Fall Festival Saturday, September 29th:  We are getting ready for our 3rd Annual Fall Festival!  Sign-up for the 5K/Fun Run, have coffee and donuts, watch a couple soccer and volleyball games and enjoy some festival games. This year we are excited to share that we have added a food truck to our venue Ella’s Bites!  Check out their menu below. This is a great time to gather all of those wonderful Happy Meal toys and send them in for our prize table! We are also looking for a couple of pop-up tents to use for the day.

We need some help running our festival games.  Check out the link below to sign-up to volunteer for an hour that day.

Early Dismissal: Monday, October 8 is an early dismissal (11:30 a.m.) with parent-teacher conferences between 1:00 and 6:00 p.m. Parents should contact teachers directly by email f they desire to schedule a conference that afternoon.

FCA 29th Annual Auction:  We are very excited to bring our auction back to the fall.  You should have received your invitation last week in the mail.  We hope that you can join us this year for our Faithopoly Benefit Auction on November 9th at the Holiday Inn from 6-9.

We are doing things a little different this year.  We are asking for donations of items that are either new or gently used for the auction.  This is a perfect time to recycle that Christmas or birthday gift that you received and get a tax donation at the same time:).  Our committee has put together a list of suggested items for baskets that we are going to put together. If you have something on the list please sign up and drop off your items at the office.  Click here for a list of ideas:)

If you are interested in joining our auction committee email jen.stanley@faithchristianacademy.net..  Tickets for the event can be purchased at https://fcafaithopoly.eventbrite.com.

Martins A+ for Education:  This is a different program than the Cash for Causes program.  This program tracks your spending via your Bonus card and donates money to the school.  YOU must register your card online at MartinsFoods.com.  Don’t forget to register, so that FCA gets credit.  This is a great way to give back without spending a penny.

Attendance:  Absentee notes can be emailed to Mrs. Joy Hobbs at joy.hobbs@faithchristianacademy.net.  Please be aware that parents will not be notified if a note is not submitted.  It is the responsibility of the parent or student to communicate with the teachers concerning absences and make up work.
