Francestown Elementary School

From the Principal's Desk

Welcome Back!

I am so excited to have all the students back here at FES! The summer break was nice, but it's been great to see everyone, hear about summer adventures, welcome some new faces, and see how much everyone has grown. There is some important information in this newsletter, so please read through it and let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Pick Up Patrol

Please check your child's plans!

In order to make sure we have the most accurate after school plans for your child, please make sure that you log into Pick Up Patrol and set your default plans. Then, as your plans change, please make sure you update it. It makes dismissal times much smoother and then you don't have to write a note or call the office. A paper came home yesterday about signing up, but if you need some assistance, please contact the office. Thanks so much for your cooperation!

Has your child outgrown their FES T-shirt?

If your child has outgrown their FES PRIDE t-shirt, you can exchange it for a larger size. Please send your child to school with their t-shirt and a note telling their teacher what size you would like and we will exchange it. If your child has lost their t-shirt, please send in a note and let your teacher know that and we will replace it. All students new to FES will get a t-shirt when the order comes in (hopefully early next week).

FES Handbook

In order to save a few trees, I am sending out the handbook via email and in this newsletter. It is also available on our website. If you would like to have a paper copy of the handbook, please let me know and we will send a copy home with your student.

After School Care

Boys and Girls Club partner with FES, HES, & GES

The before and after school care is up and running! For before school care, students can be dropped off at Greenfield Elementary School as early as 6:30 am (they will be transported to FES by 8:40). At the end of the school day, students are transported to GES where they can be picked up as late as 6:30 pm. This program is very reasonably priced and there are 3 & 5 day options available. The care will also be available on Professional Development days as well as School Vacations for an additional fee. Please see the attached enrollment form for more information or call the school.

FES Open House

Wednesday, Sep. 26th, 6pm

325 2nd NH Turnpike South

Francestown, NH

This was originally scheduled for the 20th, but that coincided with the CVHS Open House, so we changed it to the 26th. This will be an opportunity to meet your child's teacher, sign up for activities such as Ski Club, Scouts, and PTO, and also get fingerprinted so you can be a designated volunteer.

RSVPs are enabled for this event.

Happy Labor Day weekend!

Have a great long weekend. I hope you have time to rest and relax with family and friends. There is no school on Monday. See you Tuesday morning!!
