From The Principal

Dear Parents and Caregivers of FES students,

 

Christmas is in the air at FES. The students are having fun with dress up days and they are working hard in their classrooms. Our Christmas program, featuring 2nd graders, is next Thursday, December 16, 2021. I can not wait!

 

Our 6th grade boys have started basketball games and our 6th grade girls are having basketball try-outs. Our walking club has started. Each time the walking club meets there are more and more walkers! See Mrs. Klabunde or Ms. Spaulding if you are interested in the walking club.

 

Last Saturday we had our 1st Christmas Extravaganza. There was a pancake breakfast, pictures with Santa, crafts for kids, and lots of vendors for Christmas shopping. There was a food truck too. It was a great day attended by many people. Ivy Gray organized the day for Parent Club and the booth rental that was collected(over $700) was donated to help FES families. The vendors also each brought a toy for an FES family! We are so excited for this Christmas Extravaganza to continue and grow each year. Thank you to all who helped especially: Ivy Gray, Laura Melvin, and Megan Fettig.

 

Enjoy your weekend,

Mrs. Gray

Dear Families,

A program has been brought to Frankton Community Schools called Eagle Packs.

This program is a community mission sponsored by the local churches and community members. Each bag will contain consumable food for the weekend (breakfast, lunch, and dinner items plus 2 snacks). This is an anonymous program so your child will not be identified to students as receiving the bag.

 

If you are interested in having your child receive a weekend Eagle Pack

food bag, please click on the link below to enroll your child(ren) for the 2021-22 school year. You need to fill out this registration even if you received Eagle Pack bags last year. Please register ASAP

FROM THE PRINCIPAL:

Dear Parents,

 

It's hard to believe that we are in our last nine weeks of school. Your child's grades are able to be viewed on your ParentVue account for the 3rd 9-weeks. Please discuss the grades with your child and help him/her come up with a plan to improve them, if needed, for the end of the school year.

 

Please remember that online registration for the 2021-22 school year is now open. We would appreciate it if you would share this information with your family, friends, and neighbors that have children eligible for Pre-K or Kindergarten.

 

We will be having our Spring Picture Day on Monday, March 15th. All students will get their pictures taken that day and proofs will be sent home later. Parents may order pictures if they choose.

 

We all remember that a year ago we closed school due to the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of us thought it would only be for a couple of weeks and had no idea that we would end the school year with e-LEARNING. Although we closed school this year the 3 days before Thanksgiving and we've had to close some classrooms due to positive COVID tests, I'm so very proud of our parents, staff, and students for working through all the challenges to keep students in school. I appreciate how we have all worked together to accomplish this for our students this year.

 

Don't forget to SPRING FORWARD your clocks Saturday night and remember that there is no school tomorrow due to it being a Flex Day!

 

Have a Great 3-Day Weekend!!

LEADING LITTLE LEARNERS

Mrs. Wise's class talks about how to put first things first at home. Students should do their homework before doing fun things like drawing or video games. We think that children should clean up their toys and the house before watching a movie with their family. Being organized is also important to put first things first so you know where your important things are around the house.

 

Our spotlight of the week is Mrs. Shepherd's Pre-K Class

Mrs. Shepherd’s Pre-K students are having fun working in their math journals. They have been learning about sorting and matching colors. Great work!
