Frontier Schools Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month
Students at FSI Elementary & Middle participated in various ways throughout the month in recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month. Many students dressed in their culture and classroom doors were also decorated to celebrate the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.

Bike Fleet & Equipment Donations Achieved!
On September 23, 2021, many Kindergarten students at Frontier School of Innovation Elementary got on a bicycle for the very first time. Eric Sharp, FSI Elementary Interventionist, and avid bike rider himself, recognized the need for a complete Kindergarten PE Program, including a fleet of 24 Strider AKB-Specific Bikes, helmets, pedal conversion kits, one Strider 20 Bike for teacher instruction, and curriculum. With the support of All Kids Bike and many months of securing donations, Mr. Sharp finally received enough donations to purchase the fleet and equipment. In mid September, Mr. Sharp, Mr. Brown (PE Teacher), and Michael H. (2nd grade student), spent a week assembling the bikes, Michael H. assembling most of them. During PE , Kindergarten students spent time learning how to put on a helmet safely, sit on a bike, balance, and walk the bike while sitting. The excitement and fear in their eyes was exhilarating for all to see. Teachers and administrators were watching from the windows in their classrooms and offices with smiles from ear to ear.
Mr. Sharp's next goal is to raise funds to get another 24 bikes that are 20-inch bikes for 2nd and 3rd grade students. If you're interested in donating, follow this link: https://support.allkidsbike.org/frontier-school-of.../donate.

- The district just upgraded our library software. For the first time students and staff can access the software from any device through their Clever account to research the library catalog and put books on hold. Additionally, students can write book reviews and create collections of materials from the library and the web to share and use when writing papers, presentations, and such.
- I have a 1000 Book Challenge going on. This year, I have challenged the staff and students of FSHS to read 1000 books. There will be monthly prizes for the top reading homerooms and a drawing for 2 prizes from the top 5 readers. I am trying to find a corporate sponsor to pay for the year end celebration. I'm looking at maybe having a Kona Ice or ice cream truck visit the school in May should we succeed. If you are interested in sponsoring this year end event, please email Jennifer Watson at email@example.com.
- Several teachers in the district have been utilizing Donors Choose as a way to provide additional materials for our classrooms and libraries. I myself, have had almost $5000 worth of books donated to the library and I currently have an active project eligible for a double donation and another one just funded for over $5000. If you are interested in donating , please email Jennifer Watson at firstname.lastname@example.org
