Science Night Bookmark

Science Night
Science Night was an opportunity for 3rd and 4th grade students to participate in a variety of phenomena-based experiences. These experiences included touching a static electricity generator and seeing their hair stand up, making cars move with the power of magnets, walking with moon shoes, and becoming a human bowling ball to collide with inflatable bowling pins. Students used their knowledge of science to explain what was happening at the 9 different stations they experienced.

A small group of second graders were given the chance to take piano lessons as part of an enrichment group.  These students practice for 30 minutes each morning and recently were ready to showcase their hard work. Parents and staff were invited to a recital where all piano students performed one of their favorite pieces.  

Students participating in this enrichment group include Amelia Jones, Akaysha Dunn, Mary Cing, Amaree Swanagan, Madisyn Thomas and Javionte Thomas.  This group is led by Corey Cellurale.

Math night was a great opportunity for teachers, parents, and students to work together.  Families played a variety of games and explored interesting ways to practice math at home.  Many discovered that math can be fun!

Read Across America Bookmark

Read Across America
As Kindergarten celebrated Read Across America this week, guest readers visited their classrooms.  Staff from around the building shared one of their favorite Dr. Seuss stories as students listened attentively.  Students also participated in fun activities throughout the week like crazy sock day on Tuesday for the book Fox in Socks or mismatched clothes on Wednesday for Wacky Wednesday.  The week culminated with green eggs and ham on Friday and students were encouraged to dress as their favorite Dr. Seuss character. 

Club Day Bookmark

Club Day

On Friday, February 24, students spent hard earned Foust Bucks on the club experience of their choice.  Clubs offered included wood working, cake decorating, basketball, canvas painting, and many more.  Students who chose to attend the fancy hair club, went home with a new look and a small group of students starred in their own movie! Students and staff look forward to the next club day!

Griff the Groundhog Bookmark

Griff the Groundhog

On Groundhog's Day, students got a special vist from Kristen Allen and her rescue groundhog Griff.  Ms. Allen talked to the students about how groundhogs use their claws to dig burrows and use their teeth to eat plants.  She also taught students that groundhogs are true hibernators.  Later in their classrooms, students got an up-close look at Griff and his adaptations.

The Hero in Me Bookmark

The Hero in Me

Stand Up Week will take place at Foust Feb. 20-24.  During this time, Mrs. Owen will work together with students to define what bullying is and equip students with the tools they need to combat the problem.  This week will bring an awareness to the issue in a fun way and encourage students to see the hero inside.  Although each day is accompanied by a fun theme, there is an important message.  For example, on Monday students will dress as their favorite Superhero and be inspired by this saying from Superman, "You are much stronger than you think you are. Trust me."  Be sure to check the red Wednesday folder for a list of the activities.  

Foust Bucks Bookmark

Foust Bucks

Foust students have the opportunity to earn dollars each day they are at school.  The first Foust dollar of the day is given for simply being at school on time each morning.  Then, throughout the day, students have the opportunity to work their way up the color chart for working especially hard, demonstrating good character, and being responsible.  Students are then paid at the end of the day based on the color chart.  Students this year have learned basic budget skills, such as saving and spending and evaluating needs and wants.  Recently an art cart opened at Foust and students had the chance to purchase art supplies.  The next spending opportunity students will have will be next Friday on Club Day.  Students are busy thinking about what Club experience they want to be a part of.  Options include cake decorating, healthy snacks, jewelry making, hair salon, canvas painting, woodworking, and many more.  Be sure to save up your Foust Bucks for Club Day!

100th Day of School Bookmark

100th Day of School

Several classes at Foust celebrated the 100th day of school in late January.  Students made cereal necklaces with 100 fruit loops, snack mixes made with ten types of snacks, and wrote stories about what their life will be like when they are 100 years old.  Kindergarten students even dressed the part! Congratulations Foust students, you are 100 days smarter!
