Board of Education Regular Meeting will be help on July 15, 2024. An agenda will be posted by July 12th.

Ask anyone who works in an elementary, middle, or high school.
 
They’ll all say the same thing.
 
That with active learners and enthusiastic teachers under the same roof, no two days are ever the same.

 
Just like in this cartoon, very different learning opportunities are taking place in our schools and community practically side by side. 

Here’s a freezing cold example.
 
Remember the blistering chill a few days ago?

 
Well, our high school’s Snowsculpting Team captured 3rd place in this year’s Zehnder’s Snowfest.

The team of Katie Dennison, Anna Billot, Meg Redwanz, and Neely Cornelius (L-R) inspired Snowfest attendees of all ages with their massive ice structure titled “Prey,” a creative representation of the vastness of our oceans and the aquatic creatures living within.

Despite the bitter conditions, the reception “Prey” received was anything but frosty.
 
People were amazed by the planning, imagination, and hard work which went into the FHS Team’s stunning ice sculpture.

Kudos to Katie, Anna, Meg, and Neely!
 
So, what’s the opposite of this arctic experience?
 
(Even if it’s just in the name?)
 
Check out the recent STEAM Family night at LIST Elementary.

 
The STEAM Family Night at List is a long-standing tradition led by Jessie Bassett, an incredible FHS science teacher.

Somehow Jessie is always able to recruit a cadre of her amazing high school students to take STEAM Family Night over the top!

As you may know, education in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) is crucial for elementary-age children as it encompasses a wide range of inter-connected learning and skills.
  
STEAM Family Night activities engage children in hands-on, interdisciplinary experiences and gives them a sneak peek into the challenges they’ll study today and tomorrow.

Our young eagles will definitely be future difference-makers – and I join Principal Vislosky in thanking Mrs. Bassett (aka Muth Science Girl) for her dedication to the field of science and all she does for our district.
 
We’re blessed to be in a school district that has so many wonderful people, programs, and extremes!
 
There’s no end to the learning opportunities available in FSD, and if you or someone you know has a future kindergarten student – tomorrow is a big day.

Enrollment forms and information will be posted online after 4 pm Friday for Fall 2024 Kindergarten.

In closing –

I’m grateful to be part of a school district and community that never toggles between hot and cold in supporting its students and staff.

Passion always runs high for FSD – and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Thanks for helping fuel this flame!
