FAME is looking for some help....
If you would like to assist with some clubs for our latch key students (gardening, sewing, etc) please contact Mrs. Sedillo email@example.com
Deadline to order your yearbook online is approaching!
Lunch In the Library!
This week Mrs. Starnes will be looking for students who have made the biggest gain in words read this week. On Monday, those students will be invited to have lunch in the library with her!
* We will not be providing lunch. Students need to bring their lunch into the library-whether it's a tray or their lunchbox.*
Please remember that we ask that you do not bring in outside food. Ice cream will be sold to each grade level on the day they host visitors. Due to parking and cafeteria space, we strongly encourage the following schedule:
Monday - Third Grade
Tuesday - Second Grade
Wednesday - First Grade
Thursday - Kindergarten
Parents are welcome to send in pre-packaged treats with a nutritional label for birthday celebrations that will be eaten during their child's snack time.
Each Monday at 7:15 am in the gymnasium at FAME Academy at Brookhill beginning 10/17
Save The Date!
Our annual School Vision Screening for K and 2nd grades will be February 10th. Information sheets will be sent home this week. All students in grades K and 2 WILL be screened unless a parent writes “No” in the office use box in the top right corner and signs on line 3.
Parents this is a very non-invasive procedure given cost free. Sight Savers is a nationwide program with great results for helping refer students with potential vision deficits. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.
Thank you!! Nurse Amanda, RN BES
