Florence Update

November 14, 2014

Dear Florence Families,

Thanks for a great week! It was a week full of opportunities to practice flexibility and grace. We appreciate your support as we are working through the district technology glitch. We are receiving daily updates from the district and they are working hard to restore the services. We are still unsure when services will be back on-line, so please see our Facebook page for updates and call if you have questions or need to change your child's dismissal routine. We have also created a "Remind" text messaging account for families to receive updates from the school via text. Simply text to the number 817-381-1064 and in the body of the text type @fesfalcons. We will be able to send out updates and FYI's for immediate access.

A big thank you to Leslie Reyes and all the volunteers who helped with the Fun Run! We had to adjust and hold it inside this year, but everyone was gracious and helpful as we worked through a different format. Thanks for all your support with this important PTA fundraiser!!!

Thanks, also, to Donna Coomer and all who participated in the Community Storehouse food drive. This is an important time of year to give and we appreciate your willingness to provide for families less fortunate.

We hope you have a great weekend!
