Week in Review
Cooler weather and bigger smiles filled the air this week at Fletcher. Our systems are starting to take hold and kick the learning into high gear. On Wednesday, our teachers, counselor, Special Education teacher, and Principal collaborated on supporting our students with the greatest room to grow. One great aspect of being a small school is all our teachers know all our kids. The notes from the collaboration meetings were shared out school-wide so the team can share ideas on students they may have had in prior years. Small School Big Family in action!
Next week is picture day on TUESDAY! Looking forward to seeing some sharply dressed falcons 😎
School Site Council Elections this Week!

Join our PTA
Our Fletcher Elementary Parent Teacher Association is actively seeking new members to get involved with providing our students with an even better school experience. The PTA uses membership dues and donations to organize school carnivals, provide teachers with mini grants, and campus beautification projects. If that sounds like something you'd be into, contact Jen Boucek at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Student of the Week - Bailey
Our Student of the Week for is Bailey in Mrs. Sperry's 4th/5th Grade Class. Bailey flew in from South Carolina and new to Fletcher this year. She is being recognized for always coming in with an open mind, ready to learn. She has no problem helping others in class when they need it. Way to go, Bailey! Thank you for being a phenomenal Falcon!
Congratulations to Salem, Deelan, and Stella who have achieved Fluent English Proficiency! These students started school as classified as multi-lingual learners and worked incredibly hard to achieve English fluency. English is one of the most obnoxious and difficult languages to learn. We are so proud of our fluent Falcons!
Sign Up for Weekly COVID Testing on Campus
Weekly voluntary COVID screenings resumed this week and will continue to take place weekly on Monday mornings. The more students we have signed up for the screenings, the sooner we can identify symptomatic and asymptomatic cases to reduce community spread.
If you signed up last year, you must sign up again.
