Falcon Informer

Weeks of September 14th and 21st

Ms. Coley's Corner

Welcome Back!!! Your Falcon Family (pictured below) is super excited to have the children back!!

Thank you for coming to our Back to School night!! We hope that it was informative and helpful for you and your child. If you attended, you were given information regarding the curriculum, procedures and expectations this year! If you did not attend, the presentations will be on our website or you can request a printed copy of the presentation at the front office. Please check the NFES website for our administrative welcome video. The link to that video is below.

I will be gathering some feedback on this new newsletter style. I am hoping that this format is easier to read and provides useful information.

Let's have a FANTASTIC year!! Continue to read to and with your child-- it makes a difference!!

Title 1 Compact and Brochure

You received a copy of the Title 1 Brochure and the Title 1 compact. These will both be available online. Please contact the front office in the meantime if you did not receive a copy of each. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns about the information in these documents.

Why Join the PTA?

Your PTA membership helps to enhance the culture of our school. PTA funds help to pay for important items such as student lanyards and pins, books that we give away each morning, wonderful evening events and cultural arts programs. Also, your PTA membership goes toward our field trip costs keeping our costs for all students down to $7 a child. We hope that you will support us by joining the PTA this year. Forms were sent home the first week but feel free to contact us if you need another. The PTA will also be at several evening events taking membership papers.


To ensure safety, non school-age children are not permitted in classroom areas or at school sponsored activities during the school day. We try to have childcare at our school events but this is not always possible. If we have childcare, it will be mentioned on our school flyers. If it is not mentioned, we will not be able to provide child care for the event. Thank you.

Interruptions in the front office impact our ability to safely dismiss all students to their proper destination. As a reminder, the front office will be closed between 2:30-3:00 p.m. This allows our front office to focus on ensuring that students get home safely. If there is a same day change to dismissal, please send an e-mail to mary.myers@fcps.org and lisa.rhoads@fcps.org. Please call the school at 240-236-2000 to confirm receipt of your e-mail. Please be advised that if we are not able to confirm identity, dismissal changes over the phone and e-mail will not be accepted. Thank you.

It is imperative that every student return the emergency card given on the first day of school. This card gives us important information such as important contact numbers in case of emergency. Please be sure to send these back to school as soon as possible.
