Welcome to the last week of learning before we officially start our summer! We hope you are able to join in on the end of year zooms with your class this week to say goodbye! We are so proud of all of you for your hard work and efforts during this remote learning - we know it was not easy on anyone.


We have our 5th grade Drive Through Celebration on Tuesday, June 2nd. (FYI: That same day, we also have a HHS and EHS Senior Drive Through).


Additionally, the graduation ceremony video is complete and we will send it out on Tuesday, June 2nd to our fifth grade families for you to enjoy at your convenience.

- You are invited to decorate your car to celebrate if you are interested in doing so. This is

not mandatory.


- Everyone must stay in the car. In our hearts and minds, we will be hugging you, but we will remain at a safe distance.

Hi, I'm Allie P. For my fourth grade Passion Project, I am doing a Snack Drive for Essential Workers. I am collecting snack bars, water bottles, small chip packages, and other pre-packaged snacks to donate. You can also donate a gift card to Amazon or Giant. Please consider donating by dropping off snacks at the gym doors at school between June 9th -11th (during the parent pick up). If you have questions please email ajhammyeats@gmail.com

Kindergarten & New Student Registration

Please encourage your friends/neighbors to register ASAP, we use these #s to determine our staffing (number of teachers).


If you or someone you know has a child who is turning 5 before September 1, 2020, it is time to enroll them in kindergarten here at Fern Hill. Simply go to our district site, www.wcasd.net, and click on the enrollment icon. Please scan all necessary documents if possible: birth certificate, immunizations, health records, dental records and 2 proofs of residency. We will reach out to you to set up an appointment to complete the registration.

Moving? Let us know!

If your family is moving out of the attendance area and/or your child will not return to Fern Hill, can you please email Mrs. Zoretic (jzoretic@wcasd.net) to inform her of this so we can start the withdraw process. We use student enrollments to determine our sections of each grade level.
