HAPPY MONDAY

Good morning--


Last week of school...Wow! Here we go. It has been a very good year. Let's finish strong!


Thanks for all that you do to make FHN a great place towork and learn!

END OF THE YEAR HALL MONITORS

I wanted to let you know that we will have hall monitors starting today and continuing for the remainder of the year. Jesse Stewart and Jeremy Opher will be our hall monitors. Please let me know if you have any questions.

CONSTRUCTION ON THE THIRD FLOOR

The 3rd floor is going to get all new floor tile. This includes hallways and classrooms. There will not be new flooring in the 2 classrooms that were replaced last year.


The project will begin on May 23 through the end of June. The 3rd floor will not be accessible during this time. Also, the custodians will need time to wax and put classrooms back together. Third floor teachers will need to “tag” all of their furniture and desks. I will email the schedule once I receive it from the contractors.

CELEBRATIONS

Celebrations
