What's Going On In The World Of #FAPBG-Wk. of May 28st


As the school year winds down, please be aware that Middle School students will not be permitted to bring a backpack to school during the last week of classes. Female students may bring a small purse or clutch for personal items if absolutely necessary, as their uniforms do not have pockets.

Last Week!!!

I can't believe it is the LAST WEEK of the 2017-2018 school year!! Where did the year go? This last week will be a fun one, so please see the highlights below so you are ready for the week!

Monday- NO SCHOOL in observance of Memorial Day

Tuesday- 3rd and 4th quarter Honor Roll celebration

Wednesday- Kindergarten Graduation, 9:30am; 5th grade graduation, 6pm; 5th grade dance, 7-9pm (permission slip required)

Thursday- Mandatory 8th grade graduation rehearsal, 10am; 8th grade graduation, 5:30pm; 8th grade Gala 7-10pm.

Friday- Last day of school; Early release day; School-wide dress down day

Intent to Return vs. Re-Registration

There has been some confusion between the Intent to Return process and the Re-Registration process. Though these are similar processes and are both accessed through the PowerSchool Parent Portal, they are not the same and both must be completed by every returning family. If you need assistance, please contact Ms. Jabar, the Registrar.

Service Hours Due June 30th

Please remember that all service hours must be completed by June 30th. Families that fail to satisfy this annual requirement will be notified and may be asked not to return for the following year. Students will also be restricted from extracurricular activities. We will have lots of jobs around campus to be done once school lets out for the summer, so please contact Mrs. Greenman or Mrs. Frank to sign up!

Summer Learning

Students in elementary and middle school will receive Summer Learning assignments this year. Please be on the look out for these assignments to be distributed the last week of school. The Summer Slide is proven to be a setback for many students that can be avoided with continued academic focus intertwined with summer fun!


Yearbooks will be distributed as follows:

6th-8th grade, 5/29

3rd-5th grade, 5/30

K-2nd grade, 5/31

If you didn't buy a yearbook but would like to purchase one now, there will be a limited number on sale at the K, 5th, and 8th grade graduations. You can also contact Mrs. Huelsman for more information.

Please remind your upper elementary and middle school children that what they write in their peer's yearbooks lasts a lifetime. Anyone who writes any profanity or otherwise inappropriate remarks or pictures in their book or any other students' book will no longer be permitted to sign yearbooks and will be charged the amount due for a new book for that student.
