Eagle Sightings June

Holly Wehner, Principal

Dear Eagle Families and Caregivers,

Here we are in June after another school year like no other. This month our character trait is gratitude. I personally am filled with gratitude after a year as FHES Principal. I am grateful for a school full of patient, resilient, hardworking students who bring joy to our hallways each day! I am grateful for teachers and all staff who put their heart into everything they do for students each and every day throughout the year. I am grateful for the supportive families and caregivers who continually love and support the children in their lives, and work to help them grow as learners and members of this wonderful community. I am grateful for all that I have learned in this 2021-2022 school year, and I look forward to continuing on as the principal here at FHES. I am grateful and excited for our future!

On a more serious note, I need to acknowledge how heart heavy we all have been this month due to the terrible incident in Uvalde, TX. As an educator of 20+ years and a parent of 2 elementary age children this is just unthinkable, but as hard as it is to process, it is important for me to share that the safety of our children is the MOST important thing. As Superintendent Woods sent out last week, we currently do have safety measures in place.

These include:

  1. Secure all entrances at all buildings

  2. Continue to monitor and update the school safety plans

  3. Collaborative partnerships with San Juan County Sheriff’s department

  4. Mental Health and counseling support

As we move toward a new school year, the hope is that COVID will become less and less of a concern, and we can welcome regular parent volunteers and community members to be part of the in school learning experience for our children. We value this partnership and have greatly missed having visitors throughout our school on a regular basis. As we learn more about guidance for next fall, we will share what opportunities will be available. Thank you for your patience and understanding throughout this school year. I have enjoyed meeting many of you outside or in the office or over the phone, but I do look forward to seeing you here on campus more in the future!

With gratitude,

Holly Wehner

We are strongly encouraging full participation; not only are the cost savings significant, but we’re hoping to save families time as well. Students are also assured an equal start with supplies teachers have tested and know to be of good quality.

  1. In the fall bring $32 cash or check per enrolled K-5 student into the office OR log onto your SKYWARD account and make a payment.
  2. FHES will order all student supplies in bulk.
  3. Your child starts the year with all necessary supplies!

Each student will need a backpack.


If your child has to miss a day of class please remember to excuse the absence by emailing jeannarheinberger@sjisd.org or calling 360-370-7302.

Thank you!
