  • Kindergarten Registration for 2020-21 still proceeding

    During the April 7-30 sign-up window, families of this fall’s incoming kindergartners may still begin with the usual online registration despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Because all schools and FCPS offices are currently closed to the public, school staff will then contact each family for a time to complete their paperwork after the social distancing guidelines are lifted.

    The final registration window, which is for kindergartners and other students new to Fayette County Public Schools, is July 30 through the start of classes on Aug. 12. Please call the school first to make sure staff are available between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. weekdays this summer. This sign-up window is also subject to change because of COVID-19 restrictions. Check the district’s registration/enrollment webpage for the latest updates.

    Blindfold Drawing Challenge!

    You'll need: paper, pencil, blindfold.

    Pick a category (animals, jobs, actions, feelins, places, etc.)

    One player wears a blindfold and has to draw something related to the category you picked.

    The partner player must guess what it is within 60 seconds!! (too easy? try in 30 sec)

     

    Alternative:

    One drawer wearing the blindfold, and two guessers. Whoever guesses it first, will be the next "blind drawer".

    Exploring constellations! ✨💫🌟

    Use a piece of paper to draw the constellations posted under this line. Feel free to be creative with the colors of the stars.

    * If you have black paper, you can use white crayons to connect the stars, which can be also stickers from the dollar store.

    Play "Word-Number Chain"

    - In a circle, players count by turns, one by one, up to 10.

    - The person who says "ten" must change a number by a word. I.e.: change "3" by "dog"

    - Start over with the new rule: "one", "two", "dog", "four", "five",...

    - The game ends when all the letters have been changed. If a player gets it wrong, he/she's out of the game or you can just start over without eliminating players.

    - I was too easy? Try up to 20!
