Virtual Wellness Resources

FFC8 Families,

As we enter into second semester, FFC8 mental health providers have put together a collection of virtual wellness resources for students and families to use for self-care. There are a variety of resources for children of all ages, from animal cams and coloring sheets, to music and yoga. Please explore these resources with or for your child(ren) or yourselves. Our wellness resource page can be accessed through this link and is also available through the home page at each school as well as the district website.

A Note from the Principal:

Dear Parents/Guardians,


Happy New Year! I know we have sent several emails regarding our remote learning week and classroom teachers have sent the Zoom links and formalized schedules. If you are still in need of support, please contact your classroom teacher and/or the school office. We look forward to "seeing" students online this week and in person starting January 19th. Thank you in advance for your continued support!


Sincerely,

Mrs. Canon, Principal

A note from our school nurse, Mrs. Porter:

We have students at Patriot who have no immunization records or are missing immunizations. Please contact me or bring in updated ones, that would be greatly appreciated! We will also contact families who need to turn in records.

RETURN TO LEARN PLAN: See the Handbook

Patriot is a Title I School.

Under the provisions for Title I all teachers serving students must meet the qualifications for “Highly Qualified” as an elementary educator. We are proud to inform you that all teachers at Patriot Elementary meet these rigorous standards. As a parent you have a right to inquire about the qualifications of your child’s teacher or paraprofessional. In order to do so you should contact Mr. Joel Hamilton at (719) 382-1300. He will be able to provide you with this information. If you have any additional questions about our Title I status or programming, please feel free to contact Mrs. Canon, Principal at 719-382-1460.
