We started the month with our Fall Festival! It was a fun event for parents and students as they played games, rode horses, and ate sweet treats.
On November 10th and 11th, FES gave thanks for the wonderful families of our school. We had a thanksgiving lunch for the parents to eat with their children.

The Media Center hosted the scholastic book fair! This was a very exciting fundraiser to be able to buy some new books and furniture for the media center. The theme of the event was "Enchanted Forest" and Ms. Letze dressed up as a storybook character each day during the week.
On October 19, our Pre-K classrooms were visited by Representative Valencia Stovall. She read Behind the Dead Door, a book about the power of imagination. She also met with 5th grade students to discuss the role of government in their lives and ideas on ways to raise parental involvement. 
October was a month for making new bonds with the community and adding some "Partners in Education". FES partnered with Travelius Harris who purchased the FES Basketball Uniforms. Hartsfield-Jackson Altanta Airport became a valuable partner in education and PBSkids partnered with us to bring early learning parent workshops. 
We ended the month with a full week of Red Ribbon Awareness. Students participated in theme days such as crazy hair, twin day, dress for success, hat day and more. On the last day of the event, the school was transformed by all the students dressed as book characters.

First Lady Sandra Deal visited Fountain Elementary School on August 14, 2018, to help kickoff the school’s reading initiative and support Read Across Georgia Month. She showcased a Georgian author, Malcolm Mitchell, by reading his book The Magician’s Hat to a group of eager 2nd graders.

The book discussed the power of imagination and dream jobs. Afterwards, she conversed with the scholars about their own dreams. She gave words of encouragement, and the school presented her with a token of appreciation.

Other county officials including Superintendent Dr. Beasley, the mayor of Forest Park, Angelyne Butler, and  Board Member District #4, Victoria Williams were in attendance. It was wonderful celebration of reading and a great way to start off school.
