FBCS offers a Robotics After School program for our students.  Robotics helps our students develop their computational thinking skills and teaches our students how to solve problems. Through robotics, FBCS students are challenged to use their knowledge to complete specific tasks such as designing and coding rovers and other machines to perform specific functions.  There is an annual Robotics competition to culminate the end of the semester’s after school program.

FBCS has an annual Steam Night for 3rd-6th grade students. This special event provides hands-on opportunities for our students to experiment, explore and understand how scientists use the world around us to imagine new things.

Our students have filled Love Banks with change to a total of $1522 for 2018, with a total collected in the last 2 years of $3703 – outfitting 988 orphaned children! Our students are amazing! Thank you for your compassionate heart!

It’s a Wonder-Full Life

A group of kids has just finished their Christmas musical. While putting away the Christmas set, one child, Foster, begins complaining. He would rather forgo the manger and all the Christmas “stuff” to go home and open presents. Suddenly, Terrnace appears…the children believe him to be Mr. T the janitor. To show the real meaning of Christmas, Terrance talks sto God asking Him to remove Christmas. Suddenly, the entire Christmas scene disappears. WHERE IS CHRISTMAS?! IT NO LONGER EXISTS! The Christmas tree now has no lights, the Christmas Bell cannot ring, the Christmas Present is empty and the manger is missing from the nativity scene. The children realize Jesus is the reason for the season and that Christmas is Jesus. Their hearts, especially Foster’s, change and they see the promise that Jesus brought to the world. They stop thinking about themselves and start thinking about others. Jesus is the reason for the season and the reason that each of us can truly have a WONDERFUL LIFE!
