Narnia Day

Each year, our 5th grade classrooms and hallway are transformed into the enchanted land of Narnia. The students and teachers dress as their favorite characters and participate in fun games and activities centered around The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Our parent volunteers and teachers truly make the entire experience come to life!

5th Grade Day

Moving to the Upper School is an exciting time for our fifth graders. It also can bring some nervous feelings with new changes. Our 5th grade day is a preview into the new experiences to come. They experience a chapel style worship with our High School worship team, take a tour, see and learn how the lunch line works, practice opening a locker, and meet with student representatives to ask questions.

Dr. Seuss Day

“You’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,

So… get on your way!”

Our lower school students know that when God directs their path, they don’t have to worry about any obstacles – whether it be green eggs and ham, a fox in socks, or a cat in a hat. It’s always fun to celebrate Dr. Seuss Day, the joy of creativity, and a love for reading!

Hot Diggity Dog Day

Students have the option to donate $5.00 for a hotdog grilled lunch. The donations are collected and sent to E3 Royal Kids School in Mombasa, Kenya. In the past, money raised has gone towards providing food for the students and teacher salaries. We are so grateful for the friendship FCS has grown with this organization. Our students look forward to this day and fundraising for this wonderful cause.

Together We Soar

With both our Upper and Lower schools on one campus, we are able to cultivate relationships within the schools. Together We Soar is all about relationships…with each other here at FCS, those outside FCS, and ultimately our relationship with Christ. This new endeavor brings both the Upper and Lower School students and teachers together for times of prayer, interactions with each other, and service to those near and far. We look forward to serving the Lord and others while growing the unity we have in Christ.

Grandparent’s Day

FCS is incredibly grateful for the legacy of grandparents. Our special day includes grandparents coming to visit their student, see their classroom, meet their teacher and other fun activities.

High School Retreat

High school retreat has been a favorite tradition among our students for years. At the beginning of the school year, our high schoolers head off to Rockbridge Camp. The time is jam packed with activities and chapels to spiritually ground the year to come. New students come home as if they have been at FCS their entire school career.

Spirit Week for Homecoming

The week of Homecoming is always a favorite among our students. It is full of themed dress up days, class competitions and a pep rally. We end Spirit Week with our Homecoming Court being presented at the game. We celebrate a Fall and Winter Homecoming each year.

Middle school parents, teachers, students, and staff armed with rakes, leaf blowers, and smiles dedicate the day to raking leaves for those needing a hand with their yard work! We are proud of our students and their servant’s hearts.
