Message from Principal Giesen

Good News: our 2021-22 school year is off to a great start, and we were excited to welcome our students back in person! To celebrate the start of the year and our kids being back with us again, we enjoyed our annual red carpet welcome and brought in two Kona Ice trucks for a day.

Employment Opportunities - We are looking for both permanent and substitute positions for each of the following groups: teacher, para, clerical, transportation, custodial and nutrition services. If interested, here's the NPAS link to sign up: NPAS jobs.

PAC - Our first Falcon Ridge PAC meeting took place this past week. For information on the items discussed, go to FR PAC. All parents are welcome to attend our upcoming meetings! Please let Angie Musil (amusil@isd721.org) know if you would like to be added to the PAC group email to receive the PAC agenda and meeting reminders.

Fall Harvest Celebrations - We are planning to hold classroom parties on Friday, October 29. Here is some information for the time being; detailed information will come from your child's teacher as we get closer to the end of October:

  • Celebrations will take place within each classroom towards the end of the day. More information will come from your student's teacher.
  • Costumes can be brought in to wear during the party: no violent costumes, blood, or face paint should be brought in. Students should plan to put on costumes themselves.
  • No candy should be brought in to distribute. More information on food/snacks to come.

Happy fall!
