Bobcat Bulletin

Week of March 8th

Principal Petrick Message

Hello Bobcat Families,

This week Janet Rabe announced her intentions to retire. Words can’t properly express how important Janet has been to the Farmington View community over the last several decades. She has brought so much passion and given so much energy to our school and students. I know I speak for many when I say that we are excited to find ways to keep Janet connected to FVES over the coming years. Janet is excited to have more freedom and cherish time with her family, particularly with her mother who is advancing in age. We will be working on a transition plan for advanced math at FVES over the coming months.

Thank you Janet for being so AWESOME!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Mr. Petrick

Plan for sick child in Hybrid?

If your student plans on returning in person for hybrid, it will be good to have a plan in place in case they show signs of illness and need to be sent home. Students that show signs of illness in the morning, should stay at home and participate remotely via CDL as they are able.

Returning to School Safety Video

For those families that are having their child(ren) return to school, this video may be helpful for you to watch with them. We will be covering expectations in morning meetings over the next couple of weeks.

Spring Break - March 22nd - March 26th

FVPAE Needs Can Driver Volunteer

Farmington View's Can and Bottle Recycling Program is looking for a volunteer to take over transporting the bags of sorted cans/bottles to the Oregon Beverage and Recycling Center in East Portland. Our current volunteer, Dick Meeuwsen, is an FVES alumni father who continues to do FVPAE a huge service out of the kindness of his heart! He is needing to "retire" from his volunteer position due to health reasons but is willing to stick around to show the new volunteer the ropes. If you're interested in volunteering or have questions please contact Natasha at

Details: He uses an 18ft trailer but 16ft would also work. Typically he takes one load per month, although it has increased to two loads since COVID started.
