Principal's Message

What a great week we have had! Our Whataburger Spirit Night was AMAZING and we even practiced a Folsom Friday Live in preparation for our upcoming assemblies in the month of September. We are looking forward to seeing everyone at our Curriculum Night on Thursday, September 6th. Come and experience all that great things your child is learning each day! Our goal at Folsom Elementary is that you are as informed and involved as you can be. If we ever fall short of that, please do not hesitate to reach out!

-Mrs. Stephanie Cockrell

Moment of Greatness

We have started a new recognition program called Moment of Greatness. Anytime a student goes above and beyond, any staff member can recognize them for having a "Moment of Greatness". If a student is recognized, they will come down to the front office for Mr. Farrell or myself to call home and brag on them! We will display their names each week on the Folsom Flyer and at our monthly Folsom Friday Live.
