We’re excited to announce a great resource for reading this summer: Capstone Interactive eBooks! This summer, Capstone is providing free access to thousands of ebooks that can be read from school, home, or on-the-go. These eBooks can be used with a laptop or desktop computer oran iPad.
Best of all, Capstone Interactive eBooks provide critical supports like text-highlighting and read-aloud audio, recorded by professional voice-over artists. Plus, the easy navigation makes it inviting for your student to find their Capstone favorites: like the spunky Katie Woo, stunning photography from PebblePlus books, and thrilling reads like Library of Doom from Michael Dahl.
And you can feel comfortable knowing your student is exploring an ad-free website bursting with resources to help them read in and out of the classroom.

Romney Ritchie to Take Part in Envision’s National Youth Leadership Forum: Pathways to STEM
This summer, Romney Ritchie from Broadway, VA will join outstanding elementary school students from across the nation to take part in a unique academic development experience, the National Youth Leadership Forum (NYLF): Pathways to STEM, at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. NYLF Pathways to STEM is one of the Envision family of programs (www.envisionexperience.com) that enable students to explore their interests and experience learning beyond the classroom.
Romney was nominated to attend the program by his principal, Alisa Sims, at Fulks Run Elementary School (FRES). In addition to being an active member in the Fulks Run Ruritan Club, Romney participates in student STEM after school, the Challenge Program, the FRES 24 Math Club, and the student SCA. Romney has a passion for acting and has been in several community theatre productions, including Schultz Theatre’s 2016 productions of "The Last of the Dragons" and "The Elves and the Shoemaker” and Theater Shenandoah’s 2017 musical production of “A Christmas Carol.” In addition to acting, Romney enjoys reading, farming, hunting, and hiking. Romney is looking forward to gaining the hands-on experience in criminal investigation, robotics, and emergency medicine that the forum provides.
“NYLF Pathways to STEM is a great opportunity for high-achieving scholars to get outside the classroom and see, through hands-on interactive learning, how to innovate and think creatively,” said Andrew Potter, the Chief Academic Officer for Envision. “These students, who have already proven themselves academically, are challenged to work on real-world, student-created projects to bring their studies and career interests to life.”
Since 1985, Envision programs have served more than 800,000 students in more than 145 countries, with programs designed to help students develop the leadership, scholarship and career skills needed to succeed in today’s competitive college and career landscape.
Attention all FRES students and staff: Please wear a blue shirt to school on Friday, April 20 in recognition and support of Autism Awareness Month. We will take an all school photo tomorrow afternoon!
