Thank you Fernando and Tony for all you do!

At FAST we appreciate two wonderful custodians who keep our school and campus clean, sanitized and running well! Their work is physically demanding and they never know what the day will bring. They do many of the things we take for granted. Though we don’t always see them in person, we definitely know they are here because of how great our school looks and the fresh smell of ‘clean’! We want them to know just how much they mean to us and we do see what they do every day!

Halloween Costumes

Halloween is an exciting day for our students. We will be celebrating Halloween on Friday,

Oct. 29 at our school. I wanted to give you advance notice about guidelines for school appropriate costumes.


Students are allowed to dress in costumes. Costumes should

always follow our school dress code and be appropriate for

elementary age students from ages 4 to 12. Costumes should not

depict or suggest violence. No costume masks, makeup, hair color or

props please. Parents may be called to bring appropriate clothing or to remove makeup.


Your child's teacher will be sending home more detailed information about class parties.


Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Free CSUF Tutoring available to families

CSUF College of Education Advisory Board Members:

Once again, I am reaching out to you in hopes of providing resources for your teachers, parents and students during these unprecedented times.

First, for students in grades K-12th, we are continuing with our free virtual tutoring through Zoom. The tutoring will be staffed by future teachers who are enrolled at the CSU Fullerton. These future teachers will all receive guidelines on zoom security. Please feel free to share this link so families can sign their children up for this free service https://virtualteachingcoecsuf.as.me/schedule.php . The K-12 students will be matched with CSUF future by subject for tutoring with no more than 5 students in a group.

Fridays: Wear your Falcon spirit wear!
