This month, Maternelle students with Ms. McCally are studying emotional awareness and listening.

CE1/2nd Grade Engineers
Mr Clerc's CE1/2nd grade students created 'Solar Rover' vehicles in their last science class of this school year.
The vehicles were built from a kit, but utilized aluminum cans brought from home. For some students it was the first time they'd ever used a screwdriver. Each car was decorated and individualized – it was an exciting class project!

The students of Cycle 2 – CP/1st grade & CE1/2nd grade – were the presenters at Tuesday's last schoolwide assembly of the 2017-2018 school year. Five students from Mr Clerc's CE1/2nd grade class started off by describing 'How to Write a Comic Book/Graphic Novel.' Two students from CP/1st grade introduced a short movie about the Cycle 2

A Taste of Élémentaire/Elementary
Last week the Grande Section/Kindergarten students from the MS/GS (Moyenne Section/Grande Section) class went up to visit the CP/1st graders. The GS/K students will be
graduating from Cycle 1: Maternelle to Cycle 2: Élémentaire in only a few short weeks. It was an exciting adventure for the GS/K students to get to see what is in store for them next year when they move up!

Spring Park Cleanup
The FASRI PA (Parent Association) would like to extend an enormous 'thank you' to all the FASRI families (& extended families) & Fox Point neighbors who generously devoted their Sunday morning to cleaning up and refreshing Brassil Memorial Park, known to most of us as the FASRI playground.
 
Volunteers of all ages worked together to distribute 17 cubic yards (a mountain!) of mulch that was distributed under play equipment, sweep paths and sidewalks, rake debris, trim
branches, pick up litter, weed the planting beds, and plant flowers. Their hard work and collaboration shows: the park looks great!

Recently, FASRI parent and RISD faculty Dorothée King
was a guest in the 3rd/4th grade art classes. Professor King's
area of expertise is in ephemeral and olfactory (smell) art.
 
Upon learning this, Maîtresse Eleanor Ecorcheville was intrigued
and asked Professor King if she could introduce students to this
art form. During Professor King’s first classroom visit, students
discussed: “Can a sculpture be made out of ephemeral materials?”
