Bobcat Bulletin

Week of April 22nd

Principal Petrick Message

Hello Bobcat Families,

It's been a challenging week this week with announcing my plans to return to my former role of supporting extracurricular services for our entire district. This position was something that was paused at the onset of the covid outbreak two years ago. Now, with two years of COVID behind us, it is more important than ever that we have a robust offering of after school programs to engage students. I am in a unique position to do this for Hillsboro and am looking forward to the challenge.

At the same time, I'm sad to leave FVES after this year. It has been great working with this staff and group of students, even during two of the most challenging years in educational history. I look forward to the introduction of 2022-2023 FVES Principal, Jen McCalley, which should occur in May. Mrs. McCalley comes with a wealth of elementary experience and will bring a lot of elementary knowledge to FVES. I've spoken with her by phone and she is super excited about joining the FVES community.

This Sunday April 24th 10% of purchased Farmington Garden items will be donated to FVPAE.

Go Bobcats!

Mr. Petrick

Farmington View Parents for Academic Excellence is seeking Grant Writer

FVPAE is seeking a Grant Writer!

The Math Program has an open board position for grant writing. No experience is necessary. This sub-committee lead should enjoy researching grant opportunities online (we have a good list started already) and comfortable filling out online applications. We have a lot of documentation on our Google Drive and previous grant applications as examples. This is a critical role for FVPAE because it has the potential to bring in thousands of dollars each year. If you are interested in helping, please reach out to for more information.
