WHAT IS SWAP BOX? The concept is simple and open to all FEELC parents, children, and staff: a different theme is chosen for each month and everyone is given the opportunity to clear out any good condition items that your family may have outgrown but could be used in a classroom or by another family. On the THIRD WEEK of the month, teachers get first dibs to go through the box to choose items for their classrooms. During the LAST WEEK of the month, parents, kids, and staff can look for any "new" items they might bring home. On the LAST DAY of the month, all items are donated to a local charity and the process starts over the following month. Hope you can participate!


    For the safety of all of our children and families, First Environments must insist that you do not leave your car running in the parking lot at arrival or pick-up. Please refer to the Parking section of the Parent Handbook for more information.
    As a reminder, children can never be left unaccompanied during either morning drop-off or afternoon pick-up. Please make sure your child is with you at all times and is not in the lobby, hallways, classrooms, or playground areas without your supervision. It is for the safety and security of the children that the state of North Carolina has established these policies for our school, and we appreciate your help with this.

Volunteer Opportunities

    Come one.....come all!! A new board has been created to post jobs that need to be done in our outdoor areas that parents can do for parent hours. The board is located in the main hallway on the left side after the garbage/recycling cans.  Here are more directions and details about the jobs and what to do. Please come see it and consider helping out!
