Thanksgiving at FHS
November 2023 🦃
🧡 Ferguson Friends-Giving 🧡
Communicating gratitude is always important, but especially at Thanksgiving. Here at FHS we love to celebrate this time of giving in true Ferguson tradition with our FHS Thanksgiving lunch. This is a time for staff and students to slow down and enjoy each other's company before dismissing for our week long break. This moment is cherished by so many of us here and we look forward to it each year. From our family to yours, we wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Do you want to get involved? Have you heard of DAAC?
The District Advisory & Accountability Committee (DAAC) offers families, students, staff and community members the opportunity to become involved with the improvement of the educational system. DAAC submits recommendations for the district unified improvement plan (DUIP) and monitors progress, reviews charter applications, makes recommendations to the school board to consider for budget purposes, and supports family engagement in district committees and in schools.
Annually, the Board approves the DAAC membership roster. To the extent practicable, the school board must ensure that the stakeholders appointed reflect the student populations significantly represented within the district. This is why we are extending our DAAC membership timeline. We have representation from 17 of our district schools, but would like to see ALL schools represented.
DAAC meets once a month, August through April. Our meetings are held on the 4th Tuesday of the month from 6:00-7:30 pm, in-person with a virtual option. Anyone can attend a DAAC meeting, but we do have voting members. Voting members are urged to participate regularly to ensure a quorum on important DAAC actions.
If you are interested in joining DAAC please email email@example.com and she will send you more information. Thank you!
