Mr. Ron Berntson, a Science instructor at FHS, has been teaching a bridge-building activity to his 9th Grade Intro to Chemistry & Physics class for 28 years. It's always fun to watch as the classes test the strength of their bridges. Reese Wedin & Ebony Roste impressed the crowd during this year's annual bridge-breaking activity. The freshmen girls' bridge held 201 pounds! #FosstonStrong

We have been having so much fun in ECFE. This week we were making salt dough ornaments, reading, painting, making snow forts with shaving cream and enjoying some music and movement during our group time. ECFE is for children from birth through age 5 and their parents to learn together through play and activities. There is even a special time just for parents to visit and learn from each other about different parenting topics. We still have openings on Tuesday mornings and Thursday afternoons. We would love to have you join us. Click here to register: https://sites.google.com/a/isd601.org/ecfe/ecfe-class-registration?scrlybrkr=6bfcb8c8 #FosstonStrong

Last Wednesday Fosston High School's National Honor Society concluded their week-long Penny Wars. For this event, eight amazing staff members volunteered to make things interesting for the students. The four staff members with the most money in their jars at the end of the week would be pied in the face. This event raised over 650 dollars for Fosston High School's Holiday Spirit Fund. This fund helps provide holiday meals and gifts to families in our community. The National Honor Society would like to thank everyone who participated in this amazing event, and the students look forward to planning their next event in the spring. #FosstonStrong
