Green Walk For Fun-ds!
It's that wonderful time of year when spring arrives, things begin to turn green and FHCS has its biggest and most important fundraiser of the year, the Green Walk For Funds! Packets have went out to all FHCS families and we greatly appreciate your assistance in contributing toward the success of this crucial drive which helps raise funds for building maintenance, school sponsored activities and events, essential educational needs, and student scholarships.
The actual Green Walk will take place this year on Friday, May 4. Older FHCS students will be walking along the Manhattan Linear Trail from the Kansas River Bridge to City Park (approx. 4 miles) and younger students will be walking around City Park. All donations are greatly appreciated and critically important in enabling the school to continue to provide an excellent education in a Christ centered environment. At the end of the day after everyone returns to FHCS there will be ice cream and several drawings for prizes including $25 American Express gift cards.

On Sunday, April 29, Mrs. Hyde took four of her 5th grade girls to a math competition called GAIM (Girls Adventure In Math). It took place on K-state campus. Here is what the organizers said about this event: "The sixteen open-ended questions that the girls had to face in GAIM were designed to challenge the way they think. he sixteen open-ended questions that you’ll face in GAIM are designed to challenge the way you think. If you’re excited by the idea of creative, strategic, out-of-the-box problem-solving, GAIM will rock your socks off."
