Principal's Office

Hello, all!

Here is our Roadrunner Weekly for the week of October 7th through October 11th. We hope everyone has enjoyed this five-day weekend. It's been a busy, exciting start to the year, so we hope this breather has served us all well! Remember, next Monday, October 14th is also a "No School" day as our teachers have a district-wide training day.

As is the case here at First St., something fun and community building is always right around the corner! Next Friday, October 18th, our CHAMPS PTC group will be hosting our school-wide GLOW DANCE from 6:00-8:00 PM. More information can be found below. We hope you can make plans to join us!

Remember, i-Ready is an important skill builder that our kids can access at school and at home. Our teachers try to build in time during the school day for some practice, but we also encourage your child to continue using it at home also as the program recommends a minimum of 45 minutes per subject, per week to help build math and ELA skills.

Lastly, please check out our staff websites to keep current on homework and class events.

Have a great week!

Mr. Cubias

FSS Glow Dance! Friday, October 18th

A message from our CHAMPS PTC:

"We're really excited about our upcoming GLOW DANCE, scheduled for Friday, October 18th from 6:00-8:00 PM on our FSS blacktop! We're pre-selling student tickets as flyers will go in teacher mailboxes boxes this Tuesday to go home with students (an attached ticket form can also be found below). The deadline for students to turn in their pre-sale flyer to teachers will be Oct 15. Students are $5 each. Parents and kids under 5 are free. Students can turn in their ticket at the dance to get fun LED glow items to wear! Of course, students can buy a ticket at the door, they'd just have to wait in line, so a pre-sale saves time.

We're bringing back the awesome DJ we had at the VIP dance last year! We'll have black-lights setup, so everyone should wear white or neon colors to GLOW! If you have blinking, light-up, or glow accessories, we encourage you to wear them!

For food, we'll sell cheese pizza by-the-slice, nachos, kettle corn, and bottled water. We may have Smoothie Patrol as well. If you crave something sweet, the 4th grade bake sale would cover that. :)

Please encourage parents/teachers to volunteer or send in raffle prize donation. Every little bit helps CHAMPS raise funds for more amazing events like this and allows us to fund so many projects on campus.

Want to volunteer??? Please send me a message (Lisa Chandra - We're looking for help to setup tables in the MPR and prep the food tables, to help run the raffle and food tables, and of course to help clean up at the end. We'll start around 4:30 PM and we should be wrapped up before 9:00 PM."


C.H.A.M.P.S. (formerly known as PTC) stands for "Committed to Honoring and Motivating Parents and Students". Parents play a vital role in helping to fundraise, plan school functions, and guide the direction of our school. See the flyers attached below for more information, and please contact Lisa Chandra at if you have any questions.
