Parent Homework

Complete annual online registration on Powerschool by Friday, September 1st:

This will ensure that you receive principal emails, important district communications and complete required school paperwork. Powerschool is also where parents will access Progress Reports, testing data, Achievement Reports, etc.


Title 1 Funding- VERY IMPORTANT

A significant portion of Fern Elementary's funding comes from Federal Title 1 funding. This funding is ONLY received if parents complete the meal application found HERE. We NEED EVERYONE to complete this application whether your student is planning on eating in the cafeteria or not. Please complete this application ASAP.


Class Assignments

When class lists are prepared, many factors are considered before assigning your child to a particular class. If for any reason, a class change needs to be considered, a conference with Dr. Remland will be required. Absolutely NO class changes will take place before Friday, September 8th. The primary reason for this is that classes may change due to unexpected low or high enrollment the first five days of school.
