Athletics are important at FCDS. Lessons in sportsmanship, teamwork, competition, and how to win and lose gracefully are an integral part the program. All students participate in either team or intramural sports. K-3 students partake in sports during the regular school day. Beginning in the fourth grade, students take part in sports after school.
