FSG Elementary In the News

Our students are making headlines, and we want to share all the great news with you. We will keep this page updated with important announcements, news stories, and student shout-outs. Please check back often, and help us celebrate our students’ many achievements.

Box Tops Collection Program

FSG participates in the collection of box tops to raise additional funds for our school. Please collect and turn into your child’s homeroom teacher. We appreciate your help and support!

School Spirit Week

The Ridgway Area School District is celebrating homecoming activities during the week of September 24–27. This year’s theme is musical mania. Students will participate in various school spirit activities including theme days and a pep assembly.

Theme days this year include:

  • Monday, September 24: Surfer Day – Wear your beach attire for the day!
  • Tuesday, September 25: 70’s/Disco Day – Pull out your bell bottoms and ruffled shirts!
  • Wednesday, September 26: Picture Day – Dress to impress because picture day is today!
  • Thursday, September 27: School Spirit Day – Wear maroon and white to support the Ridgway Elkers! It’s pep assembly today!
  • Friday, September 28: Stay in the Game Day – Wear your warm-ups or athletic wear!
Spirit Week Participation

FSG Elementary School will have spirit weeks with theme days! Themes include colors of hope days, pink days, additional theme days, and red ribbon week throughout the year! We participate in theme days to foster pride and to add an extra level of excitement within our building. Participation in these special days are voluntary. If your child does not have clothes that fit the theme day and are unable to borrow any, please do not buy them. We would never want to put our families in a position to have to purchase additional clothing items for a them day.

Meet the Teacher Night

We have scheduled Meet the Teacher Night for grades 1 through 5 on Thursday, September 20 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Please come meet the teachers and check out our school. Make sure to stop and visit with the principal as well.
