This year’s Fairyland Community Art Show on March 1 was incredible! Lookout Mountain United Methodist Church was filled to the brim with beautiful art of all shapes, sizes and forms. Craig Steele was one of this year’s featured artists, showing his innovative circular artwork using digital photographs and computer software to print on a variety of materials. He also performed amazing fire twirling demonstrations throughout the day for Fairyland students and other visitors. We are so grateful to Beth Bradford, DeAnna Willingham, Rachel Hinderliter, and all of the other parent and community volunteers, judges, and artists who entered their work. Art makes our community a happier, more beautiful place!
Jump Rope for Heart on February 28 was also a great success. This fun annual event raises awareness and funds for fighting heart disease. A total of $3,850 was raised for the American Heart Association!
Thanks go to Coach Cory Hall, specialist teachers at FES, and our energetic students for making a great day happen.
The first week of March always brings out our Seuss-ish side. After a week of Seuss-tastic book reading, a tasty green eggs and ham breakfast and birthday cake at lunch, prepared by our fabulous cafeteria staff, we threw quite the party! On March 4, the characters came out in droves to celebrate the birthday of Theodore Seuss Geisel and the joy of reading! The day continued with fun activity centers in the library, estimation contests, guest readers in each classroom, Seuss-themed treats, school supplies for all, and much more. It was a wonderful day for celebrating literacy. Thank you to all our parents and community members who read, volunteered and donated!
