Neighbors Feeding Neighbors Update

This week marks our final distribution of food for those families participating in the "Neighbors Feeding Neighbors" program. We would like to thank all of the wonderful volunteers who helped with packing and providing the bags of food. We would also like to thank Bethlehem Lutheran Church for sponsoring this great program as well as the generous gifts received by donors, grants, and other fundraising activities. We are very grateful to you all!

Reminder for Parents and Guardians of Second and Fifth Grade Students

Your child's state mandated exams will be due next year. Students going into third grade need a dental exam. Students going into sixth grade need a physical exam. We handed out paperwork at our November parent-teacher conferences. We would like to remind you to please make an appointment to get these exams done so your child is ready to start school in August. Please contact us if you have any questions.

The positive behavior interventions and supports (PBIS) core team is collecting survey data from families.

May Champs

Congratulations to our May champs! We are so proud of these students! Keep up the great work!

Fourth Quarter Progress Reports

Fourth quarter progress reports are being sent home with students on May 1. We send these reports home for students who we have a concern about, such has those who have an average of 79% or lower, or for a student who is not performing as they normally do. Some teachers also choose to send these reports home to parents as a way to communicate current levels of progress. Please contact your teacher anytime throughout the year with any questions regarding your child’s grades. 

Library Book Reminders

Students and families, as the year is coming to its end, please be sure to return all library books. Please take a close look through your desks and even on your book shelves at home to see if you can locate any library books. We will send home letters regarding lost or damaged books. We appreciate any financial support that you can provide to cover the cost of replacing these. Thank you!

If you happen to have pants or shirts that are in good condition, please consider donating those to us. Please see our latest newsletter for information about sizes. We appreciate your help! 

Spring Fundraiser Top Sellers

We would like to congratulate the top sellers for our spring fundraiser. We will take our top sellers to a McDonald’s lunch on Monday, May 14 from 11:15 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. We will travel from the school to McDonald’s in a hummer limousine! We will send permissions slips home soon for those who qualify.

Dress Code Update

We are now permitting shorts at school. Please consider the temperature outside and inside of our building, and have your child dress in layers. It tends to be a little on the cooler side, and for optimal learning conditions, we want our students to be comfortable. Thank you!

Jump Rope for Heart Update

Our FSG family donated $1795.00 to the American Heart Association and the millions of Americans they serve through our Jump Rope for Heart event. We continue to raise awareness about heart-healthy living, and are helping this organization fund more lifesaving scientific research and critically-needed education efforts. Student thank-you gifts have shipped from the American Heart Association. Your child will receive the gifts they earned as soon as we receive them. Thank you again for all your support of this great program.
