FPBS Friday Footnotes

November 12th, 2021

Dear FPBS Community,

As the holiday season approaches, I couldn't be more proud of our students and staff here at FPBS. Our building continues to be filled with positive energy on a daily basis. I would also like to acknowledge the surrounding FPBS community for your support. Our staff and students could not do it without you!

Before we reach the break for Thanksgiving, we have several important dates to keep in mind, including the following:

  • PTA Picture Retake Day: November 17th
  • FPBS Parent-Teacher Conferences: November 18th & 19th (1/2 days for students)
  • Early Dismissal Drill: November 24th

You will find more detailed information regarding each of these dates at the bottom of the newsletter.

Have a great weekend!


Mr. DeKams

Important Notices

PTA Membership Information

The Floral Park-Bellerose School needs your support. Not only does more memberships support PTA advocacy efforts, allowing Nassau county more votes on state and national PTA issues, it allows the FPBS PTA to contribute to the school’s positive environment (suggested donations such as a book vending machine to support the school’s PBIS program), host many great programs throughout the year (such as the Book Fair) and conduct many great fundraisers (like the pie sale). While Covid restrictions have limited some in-person programs we are looking forward to using funds to make this school year fun, safe and productive!

And remember, being a member does not obligate you to go to meetings or serve on a committee.

This is the place to join!
