There was a minor accident on campus this morning involving one of our school buses and a car behind the central office. All of the students riding the bus, the bus driver, and the individual driving the car appeared to be ok, but they are being checked out by our medical staff to be safe. We are currently in the process of contacting parents of the students riding the bus. We want to thank the City of Fordyce, the Dallas County Sheriff's Office, and the Pro Med ambulance service for their prompt response to this situation. We appreciate the hard work and dedication from our local law enforcement and emergency responders. If you have further questions about this situation please contact the central office. 870-352-3005.
On September 29, 2022, a group of our 6th grade Gifted and Talented (GT) students participated in Engineering Day at the Southeast Arkansas Education Service Cooperative in Monticello. They were grouped with GT students from other schools in our co-op. One of their tasks was to create a 3D circle using only Pringles. Several of our students were named "Pringle Wranglers" as a result of being one of the first groups to successfully create their 3D circle. Way to represent FES!
