6th-12 grade conferences will be held come-and-go style in the Grade School Gym on Thursday, September 12th from 5:00-8:00 p.m. and Friday, September 13th from 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Students are encouraged to attend with their parents. The conference will begin with a check-in with the student's mentor. Parents are welcome to visit with other classroom teachers afterward.
School begins at 7:55 a.m. each day. Students should arrive at school at 7:45 a.m. so that they are in their classroom and ready to begin class on time. Please do your best to schedule appointments for students on Fridays when school is not in session.
In accordance with Kansas Statute 72-1113, a child may be considered truant if absent 3 consecutive days or 5 school days in any semester or 7 school days in any school year.
Please review the graphic below for information illustrating the importance of regular attendance at school.
Another great way to show your Goldbug spirit is to join the Booster Club! This small group of volunteers is very much in need of additional parent volunteers in grades 6-12 to help plan and implement their efforts throughout the year. You can learn more about what Booster Club does and how you could help by contacting Kevin Milford at 620-338-6511 or stopping by the Booster Club table at a home ball game.
Booster Club is kicking off the year with volleyball and football scrimmages and a free hot dog meal on Thursday, August 29th at 6:00 p.m.

The Leader in Me- Habit 1: Be Proactive
Parents, please encourage your child to be proactive at home, too! This could look like encouraging your child to get out their blue folder each night to ensure that you see important notes and initial it. It could also look like laying out clothes the night before or teaching them how to set an alarm so that they are on time for school. They will love to hear you using the word "proactive" at home!
We appreciate your partnership in growing great leaders at FGS where we believe that Goldbugs lead their lives, their school, and their world!
