Thank you

THANK YOU for all the sweet emails, cards, and gifts that each one of you sent for Assistant Principal's Day/week. I am so grateful and blessed to lead a campus with so much support. I appreciate all the support that each of you have given me this year! The students have been a pleasure to watch these past few weeks. They are all so engaged and excited with all the learning that is going on. WOW! Let's continue to stay focused on our end goal and continue to practice social distancing, washing our hands and wearing our masks. We can do it!

We are currently not having students play on the equipment during recess however, many of our students in the community play after-school and on the weekends. Our custodians have had to clean mud and feces from the equipment each week. Please discuss with your children to help keep their play area clean! We do not want anyone throwing wet mud or touching feces! Thank you!

We would like to introduce Sora, a new to FBISD E-book/audiobook online system to help our students reconnect with books no matter where they are. Sora has some of the newest and best books around. It can be accessed through your child’s 1Link/Class Link account. You can also download the app on a device and enjoy from there. All our Cubs were shown Sora this past week in Library but if you would like to watch tutorial, please see your child’s Library Schoology course.
