Immersion Education – Teaching academic content in another language

Hello Fronteras Families!

As we wind down the year, things kick into high gear! Can you believe we are nine school days away from summer vacation?

Thank you to everyone who continues to volunteer in our classrooms and on field trips! Our next big need is Field Day. In order to have the Dunk Tank and Adventure Run, we need about eight more adults to volunteer time to supervise both activities. If we do not have volunteers in place, we will have to cancel those stations. Please call the front desk to add your name to the sign-up sheet. Again this year, the school is providing all lunch foods. Please come and enjoy!

Upcoming events to look forward to:

· May 13th – Q4 Assembly & Student Showcase @ 9am & 1pm 1st-8th Music performances

· May 18th – Fronteras Drama Community performance @ 3:30pm

· May 20th – Fronteras Drama School performance @ 9:30am

· May 21st – Kindergarten Graduation @ 1pm K Music performance

· May 22nd – 8th Grade Promotion @ 1pm Middle School Music performance

· May 23rd – FIELD DAY & LAST DAY FOR STUDENTS! 9:00-1:30pm

Have a wonderful weekend!

Most Sincerely,

Mrs. Hutchins

“Be so happy that when others look at you, they become happy too.”

We were treated to a surprise visit by CKH Senior Leadership Solutions Executive, Vern Hazard of the Flippen Group, April 24th. Vern stopped into Fronteras to Congratulate us on being named a CKH National Showcase School three years in a row!

Please Check-In!

Parents who are late picking their children up from school must check-in personally with someone at the front desk. Please also notify all of those on the pick-up list of this requirement. This alleviates any concern of missing children.

Library Corner

The Fronteras Library volunteers are wrapping up the library for the year. This week is the last week to check out books. Now is the time to return any outstanding library books to the school. If you have lost a book and have exhausted your search (including looking in classrooms, and have double checked home and the library), we ask for $7.00 or a replacement of the lost book (new or used). Books can be placed in the library return box outside the library or the front desk. Checked out book slips are going home this week with your student. Thank you for your support for the library!

Thank you,

Fronteras Library Volunteers

After School Enrichment Clubs

There are no After School Enrichment Clubs the last week of school. The last day of After School Enrichment Clubs is Friday, May 17th!

Friendly Reminder!

This is just a friendly reminder that there is no food or drinks allowed in the library. Leftover remnants of food and wrappers attract mice and it's hard to clean set-in stains on library furniture. Thank you in advance for keeping our library clean and an enjoyable place for our students to read!

Do you Owe?

With the last days of the school year quickly approaching, there are still outstanding balances for field trips that need to be collected. Reminder emails and Class Dojo messages have been sent. Please check your SchoolCash Online account or call the school direct at 376-2223 if you have any questions.

Synergy Student Information System!

The Matanuska Susitna Borough School District is migrating to a new student information system (SIS) called Synergy for the 2019-2020 school year. This change in our SIS will better support education for MSBSD students. Our current system, SchoolMAX (iParent/iStudent), has become static and its functionality will not improve in the future. Our new SIS is responsive and will evolve with the changing needs of K-12 education and of our District. Transitioning to Synergy allows us to create a more user-friendly platform and optimize operating costs while we continue to focus on quality education for all students. Online registration will begin in early July 2019 and the District will reach out directly to families when registration is open. For additional information visit or contact Reese Everett/Dina Henderson in the Office of Instruction 746-9212.”

Lost & Found

Lost & Found will be donated to Good Will on Friday, May 24th!
