Outreach Talk Series: 1st Annual FSE Alumni Panel
Frontier's Outreach & Communications Team organizes a bi-monthly Outreach Talk Series with Community Leaders. Each talk series begins with a catered luncheon at the Student Engagement Center, followed by a guest speaker/panel presentation on an engaging, relevant and current topic that impacts our students, families and community.
Our very own FSE Alumni were the panelists on January 25th. Panelists included Tedeja Dean, Murad Isgandarli, Kallissa Hollins, Kanaissa Hollins and Richard Cole. FSE Alumni shared their post secondary advice, experiences and obstacles with FSE seniors. As our seniors are working through their decision process, it was helpful to hear from those that have gone before them in making their college decision.

National School Choice Week (NSCW)!
During the week of January 22-26th, Frontier Schools celebrated National School Choice Week! Every year in January, this week shines a positive spotlight on effective education options for every child. The goal of this week is to raise public awareness of all types of education options for children. These options include traditional public schools, public charter schools, magnet schools, online learning, private schools, and homeschooling.
Frontier students celebrated all week long in several ways! Elementary students learned and performed the NSCW official dance, some campuses drew pictures and wrote why they love their school, senior students at FSE posed for a NSCW scarf throw and students from all schools posed for great celebratory pictures. A fun week had by all!
Frontier Schools Complimentary Yard Signs!
With our diverse student body, home visits are paramount in bridging cultural gaps that might exist. These visits also provide opportunities for staff to understand their students better by visiting them in their home environments. The goal is to foster a true partnership - with both students and their families.
Please join us on April 13th for our district-wide, annual Multicultural Festival that celebrates and connects the many cultures that are represented at Frontier Schools. Our diverse student body draws from more than 10 countries - this is something to celebrate! The event is meant to capture and create community by encouraging people to learn from each other while sharing tradition and culture.
While the Festival takes place all in one evening, preparing and getting ready for the hundreds of students, families, and community members that come takes months. Our staff, students, and families work very hard preparing their country booths, performances, and eclectic dishes. Country booths are designed to highlight the country's flag, traditions, celebrations, foods, dress and notable art. This fun and exciting event is guaranteed to have something for everyone, including: music, dance, poetry, art, games, and an abundance of authentic foods representing diverse cultures.
We hope to see you there!

FSI Elementary is home to K-3rd grade classes for approximately 500 students, but is proud to announce the opening of the new Pre-Kindergarten (Pre-K) program for the 2018-19 school year. These school years offer them their last opportunity to still be kids before moving on to middle school.
With our increased enrollment, recess on the playground at FSI Elementary needs additional space and updated equipment.
The playground should be completed by Spring 2018. If you have any questions, please email Jennifer Watson at email@example.com.

FSE Visits Harry S. Truman Library & Museum
On January 23rd, juniors from Frontier School of Excellence visited the Harry S. Truman Library and Museum. Students received an in depth tour of the museum and were able to participate in a unique student program called, The White House Decision Center. This nationally recognized hands-on history lab allowed students to step into the roles of President Truman and his advisers. Students had the opportunity to work with formally classified documents and collaborated together to take on some of history’s greatest challenges. This was a great experience for students to a get first hand look at what it takes to work in a Presidential office.
