Eagle Sightings October

Holly Wehner, Principal

Dear Eagle Families,



The month of October is off to a great start! Students are settling into the routines and expectations of their classrooms and the school. All school staff are greeting students each day with a smile and setting a positive and supportive tone for all learners. As I walk through the halls and visit with students at lunch and recess, I continue to see such joy as students are working, eating and playing together!


Perseverance is our character trait of the month. It has been a pleasure to visit classrooms to talk about perseverance, and to learn from students about times they have persevered. I also want to recognize the perseverance that is happening at home. The expectations of families and adult helpers throughout the pandemic has been tremendous. FHES is so grateful for the partnership throughout this time, and we look forward to the continued collaboration as we work together to support our learners academically and emotionally!


I am excited to also report how FHES Eagles are SOARing! They are Safe, On task, Accountable, and Respectful. Ask an FHES child in your life what they have done (or will do) to earn a SOAR award!


Thank you,


Holly Wehner

FHES Parent Teacher Organization

The FHES Parent Teacher Organization is asking for your help. There are about 305 students in K-5 and about 28 teachers that help create a positive learning environment for our students. Our FHES PTO has a huge responsibility to help fill the gaps left by the lack of funding for education in our state. The PTO is looking for more members to join the PTO team. If you are interested please keep an eye out for info on the next meeting.

Halloween Parade

FHES will be putting on the annual Halloween Parade on Friday October 29th. Keep an eye out for more details to come.

Parent Pick up

To ensure the busses can drop off and pick up on time we ask that you drop off your student quickly and pull as close to the curb as possible. Also a friendly reminder, please do not park in the bus lane.
