Learn At Every Turn

Learn at Every Turn (LAET) is getting closer! The school-wide event will take place on Friday, October 27th and will run from 8:15 AM – 1:45 PM.

WHAT IS LAET? In lieu of daily school activities your student will rotate through to educational and fun-filled sessions. PTO has lined up local community members, parents, family members, etc. who will volunteer their time to teach our students a variety of topics that they otherwise may not be exposed to. They will truly “learn at every turn!” We have a very exciting line up put together!  Specific details of the sessions your student will get to attend will be sent out after fall break! If you have any questions in general about the event, please contact Angie Cassis at angieberk@yahoo.com or call/text (317) 523-4361.

WANT TO JOIN IN ON THE DAY? Because the children are changing rooms and participating in new and exciting activities, we like to have chaperones rotate with each classroom to help the children and the instructors, as needs arise. Your help makes the day run much smoother.  This is a great opportunity to spend a special day with your child! If you would like to be a classroom chaperone for LAET please visit the following link to sign up: http://bit.ly/LAET2017

We need to ensure each classroom is covered by enough chaperones, and that we have a solid headcount for the catered lunch. So, if you plan to attend, it is important that you directly sign up via the link above, or let Angela Tisdale know. Thanks! Angela.tisdale@gmail.com or (859) 619-1632

Before visiting the link to sign up to chaperone, give thought to:

  • If you have more than one FKE student, do you want to chaperone in one classroom or split your time?

  • Do you want to purchase the $5.00 lunch (Chick-fil-A sandwiches, fruit, pasta salad, dessert and drink)? Keep in mind, we provide a headcount for lunch a week in advance; ordering the day of is not an option.

Note About Lunch at Learn at Every Turn:

Lunch will be served in the lunchroom for adults only, the children have a great time eating a special lunch in their classroom with their teachers! You must eat your lunch in the lunchroom without your child due to allergy concerns. After you’ve eaten, you may join your child in their classroom. Children are not permitted in the lunchroom nor will they be given the adult lunch option. 

*Prior to the event, you must have a completed limited background check on file. These forms are located at the front office, or can be downloaded from our FKE website under the Parent/Volunteers section. 

*Please refrain from bringing younger siblings to the event, thanks!

We appreciate all the support in making Learn at Every Turn happen! It is such a wonderful and memorable event for the students that wouldn’t be possible without the efforts of many.

http://bit.ly/FallBookFair2017

Reading for pleasure unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Here’s what you can do to help children develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading:

• Set the example. Let children see you read.

• Have a collection of books in your home. Update this collection routinely to keep up with changing interests and reading skills.

• Support our school’s Book Fair. Allow your children to choose their own books to read.

Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that brings the books kids want to read right into our school. It’s a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child’s reading habits.

Book Fair dates: September 25th thru 29th 2017

Shopping hours: During your child’s regularly scheduled library time

Special activities: PTO Meeting 6-7 pm/ Family Night 5-8 pm Wednesday September 27th

You are welcome to join your student during their library time or on Family Night. We look forward to seeing you and your family at our Book Fair! Remember, all purchases benefit our school.
