Well Not All Are Officially Retired Yet But Soon To Be . . .

We will have our retirement celebration for Mei Carlon, Deanna Crawford, Debbie Greene, and Kathy Hunter Monday, June 13 from 5:30-7:30 here at school. These lovely ladies have shared their time and talents with students and staff for many years and we look forward to celebrating their amazing careers.

We encourage everyone to bring their families to this event because we will have dinner, games, and the opportunity to send off our retirees in style! Please use the Google form below to sign up by May 20 so we will know how much food to provide.

Various Information

Goodbye to Rose!

As you know by now, Rose accepted a job in the payroll department at Blue Ridge Community College. Friday, May 13 will be Rose's last day her at Fletcher so be sure to come by next week to say goodbye!

End of Year Items

Obviously at this time of year we are working hard on end of year assessments and getting ready for End of Grade tests. Please make sure your students continue to be quiet in the hallways as Reading 3D assessments occur. We want everyone to show as much growth as possible!

EOG camp begins May 16 for third through fifth grades. This is an excellent opportunity to push those "bubble" kids to passing scores because we are able to target their specific needs. An early thank you to everyone involved in this since it is vital to our students' success on their tests, which are then used to assign growth rates and our school's A-F letter grade. We want our students to have the best chance possible to be career and college ready and move up their "place in line" like they did on last year's test scores!

Students Who Owe Money

If you have a student who owes money for something (i.e. school pictures, damaged books, meals in the cafeteria, etc.), please make sure we have their names. These students will not be allowed to participate in end of year activities until all debts are clear.
