“The Great Tournament, a trial of mythic warriors and ancient kings as the thunder of hooves and the shattering of lances fill the Hall as combat is engaged. Swords clash, axes ring, as one knight seeks the title of Champion.”

Dear Parents, Prepare for a trip back in time! We are thrilled to be able to offer our students a trip back to Medieval Times to celebrate the pageantry of the middle ages. Sixth grade has arranged for an end of the year field trip to Medieval Times in Schaumburg to enrich our study of the middle ages. We will depart Frederick on May 27th at 9:30 am and return around 2:00. The cost of the trip will be $44 per student. This fee includes transportation to and from the arena, an individual color framed group photo of our team, cheering flag banner, fourcourse feast & beverages, a half hour seminar, and two-hour jousting show. We are sending this information well in advance to make payment as convenient as possible. Please send back the form below with your choice of payment option. Let us know if you have any concerns.

April Donations Needed for Wes’ Hope In March Wes’ Hope sent out a total of 8 care packages to a deployed Naval Unit. Five of those care packages came from donations from Frederick School and District 46. My aunt and I thank you all so much! For April we have selected a small Army Unit of four men and one woman based out of Ft. Lewis, Washington and currently deployed to Afghanistan. Our April package(s) will be mailed out April 16, 2014 (this is also Wes’ birthday). I need your help. Please ask your family to consider sending donations to school. Donation boxes are located near the school entrance. This unit is not asking for much, mostly snacks and reading material. Let's flood them with care packages in April in honor of Wes' Birthday! Thanks, Allie Cowlin (5th grade) Items this Army Unit wants/needs They have mini refrigerators and microwaves. The men enjoy reading motor cross, offroading and men's health magazines. The woman in the unit spends most of her free time reading classic books or other books as seen in the Modern Library Top 100. They all love watching movies and TV in their free time. They are ALL foodies and love to snack on anything they can get their hands on. Notes: • In addition to donations, please consider writing a letter/card/note of Thanks. • Monetary donations (to help with postage and additional care package items) can be made via • All food must be pre-packaged. (No home cooked anything.) • Do not send illegal copies of anything.

About Wes’ Hope: My cousin Wes Singer passed away two years ago. He was 25 and served in the United States Army for almost four years. My Aunt Debbie started Wes’ Hope to honor Wes’ life and keep his memory alive. It is also important to me to keep my cousin Wes’ memory alive so, along with my Aunt, we decided to adopt soldiers who are deployed. It is so important that we not forget these men and women who are serving our country.
