From the Principal's Desk

We had a great week here at FES. Students in grades 1 - 4 worked exceptionally hard on their Fall NWEA tests and just about everyone is finished with them. We had visits from The Harris Center and Cornucopia. On Tuesday, the Lion's Club sponsored the vision screening and we had 100% participation! Finally, It was great to see everyone at the Open House on Thursday.

We are looking forward to next Thursday when FES will be sponsoring the Francestown Community Supper. Each classroom will be making something to contribute to the supper. Families are also encouraged to contribute in one of the categories: Kindergarten - Bread, Grades 1, 2, & 3 - Crock Pots, Grade 4 - Desert. We will begin serving at 5:30. Hope to see you there.

A flyer will be coming home (both a hard and digital copy) about our upcoming Parent Night. Please check your child's folder and your email for more information. Staff will work together with parents to investigate the social emotional learning curriculum at FES. We hope you will be able to join us for this great collaborative opportunity.

Have a great weekend,

Free Flu Shot Clinics

ConvenientMD is happy to be able to offer free flu shots again this year!

"Families can just walk in to any of our 11 locations, 8am to 8pm, 7 days a week to get their free flu shot. No appointment needed and you do not need to have the flyer in hand. We do charge insurance at no cost to the patient and, we offer flu shots at no cost to patients without insurance as well – with or without insurance, there will be no charge!"

Each classroom will be preparing something for the dinner, and parents are also encouraged to contribute to the festivities. We could definitely use some more crock pot donations.
