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.

Parent-Teacher Conferences

Parent-teacher conferences are on Thursday, March 28 from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. and on Friday, March 29 from 7:30 to 11:40 a.m. Thank you for taking the time to come in and meet with your child's teacher. Communication between us is vital. 

Weather Emergency Plans

As weather in our area can get quite bad rather quickly, it is very important for all families to establish their plans in the event of a school delay or cancellation. The district will send alerts for weather-related cancellations and delays via the Global Connect System. You can also find information about delays or cancellations through radio, TV, and the district website.

Cookie Dough Sale Fundraiser

We kicked off our cookie dough sale fundraiser on Monday, February 4, for all students in grades K-5. The sale will run through Tuesday, February 19. All money and orders are due Tuesday, February 19. Please let the office know if you did not receive information about this fundraiser. Delivery will take place on Thursday, March 29, at parent/teacher conferences. This fundraiser benefits student participation in field trips as well as grade level specific activities throughout the year that enhance our students' learning experiences. Thank you in advance for your participation.

PSSA Information

As we continue to move towards the time of our state assessments, students will continue to learn, practice, and apply the grade level skills expected of them. We will continue to ask families to help us by practicing math facts and reading each night. This support, even a few minutes each day, truly does make a difference! We know that we cannot effectively help our students alone. Our parents are our partners, and we need your help! Please be sure to avoid any vacation plans or other appointments that might keep students from school on these days. We appreciate your understanding!

Please mark your calendar for the PSSA testing dates.
