Francestown Elementary School
October 12, 2018
From the Principal's Desk
We are really gearing up for the Parent Information Night next Thursday. An RSVP slip came home earlier this week and we have had a great response so far. If you have misplaced the sheet, please call Harriet so we can get you signed up for this great opportunity to work with the teachers to learn about the self-regulation skills we are teaching in school as well as the language we use to reinforce these skills. There will be lots of take home material that will help strengthen the home-school connections. Please join us! Childcare and dinner will be provided for any children who attend. We do need a head count for dinner, so please let us know if your children are going to attend.
Veteran's Day is coming up quickly. FES is partnering with the Francestown Patriotic Purposes Committee to provide some refreshments at the Veteran's Day Parade on November 11. I will be sending out a Sign-Up Genius next week to ask for volunteers to bake something to contribute or to serve during the Luncheon. This is a great opportunity for FES to connect with the greater community. The Patriotic Purposes Committee is very supportive of FES, by not only providing a stipend for this event, but also reimbursing anyone the cost of ingredients purchased for the refreshments. More details will be in the Sign-Up Genius, please keep an eye out.
Have a great weekend!
