The Fulton Flier

Week of August 23rd

Dear Fulton Families,


On August 13th, we kicked off our school year by bringing our team leaders together for our Leadership Retreat. This year, it was held at Manor Hill Tavern; which is a great place to engage in fun, laughter, and planning for this upcoming school year. A big shout out goes to Manor Hill Tavern, The Kindness Pantry, and several of our students who surprised all attendees with a Welcome Back Bag. The team leader retreat always commences our new school year in an exciting way and the kindness from our community made it even more special.


Last week, our staff joined us and our PTA presented us with a bountiful of delicious foods to start our day. Thank you PTA for helping us to transition from summer and leaping into a great school year.


This week our staff will continue to engage in professional learning and planning for your child to join us on August 30th. As of this morning, we have 63% of families who have completed their family file. Please remember to log-in as soon as you can to complete your family file. This will allow you to see who your child's teacher is on August 25th. If you need help, please contact our Front Office and they will be happy to help you.


Warmly,

Dr. Burks

Do you want to know your child's teacher?

In order to find out who your child(ren)'s teacher is on August 25th, you MUST fill out your Family File.


Please update your Family File for the 2021-22 school year. Family File serves as our online emergency card, and every student must have an updated Family File in place. To update your Family File, please visit https://www.hcpss.org/connect/, login using your parent/guardian credentials (new families see below), and select “More Options” from the left hand side. You will need to click through each section of the Family File, make any applicable changes to your child’s information, and save. An updated Family File is needed for all students, and parents will not be able to view classroom teacher assignments if the Family File is not updated.
