CLASS INTERNATIONAL PALS: All elementary classes in 1st- 5th grades

These students are their International Pals. Throughout the year
the younger students make them cards, share goodies, and invite
them to their classes to share. We want them to know what it means
to be part of the FPD family.
GARDENS ARE PLANTED: All classes 3K- 5th grade have cleaned out
and planted their fall garden beds. Raised beds are filled with
kale, broccoli, lettuces, Swiss chard, cabbage plants and carrot
seeds. It will be exciting to watch these plants grow as we look
forward to picking and having these for snack times and lunch! What
an awesome way to experience this part of God’s creation.
