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!

Share the love of Jesus with a shoe box!  Our school goal this year is 400 boxes.  Help us out!

3 Ways you can help:

  • Send $9 to ship a box
  • Pray for the children who will receive the boxes

Elementary Christmas Play December 10, 2019

Thank you to all who participated and helped to make this year’s performance a success!!

Christmas Hang-Ups

It’s just before Christmas and the tree ornaments have been awakened from their yearly hibernation by the movement of their storage box.  It’s time! As they begin to prepare for another season on the Watson’s Christmas tree, they are greeted by a rather strange and “un-Christmassy” ornament: A Hula-Girl.  The Star, the Snowman, the Angel and others don’t understand what she has to do with Christmas and give her a rather cool reception until another significant figure from the mantelpiece shows up to explain to all of them what Christmas is about and how they each have significance in God’s amazing plan of redemption through His Son, Jesus.
