From the Principal...Kristy McKnight
During Kindness Week, the Random Acts Matter organization has a variety of ways that your families can get involved if you choose to do so. You can view their website, calendar of events and sign up to volunteer to support their mission of spreading kindness in our community.
I wanted to take a moment to thank all who participated in our Penny Wars this week! While we don't have a total yet, the excitement shared by the students during the collection was impressive. I will be sure to share the winning class next week.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Just Shave It
This year, Ferson will be honoring our very own Jimmy Schafer! Show your support for Team Jimmy buy purchasing a shirt using this link. All orders for shirts need to be placed by Friday, February 28th so that we receive them in time for the Just Shave It event on Saturday, March 14th. Any questions?

Water Bottles Needed!
AVIC needs your plastic water bottles and caps for our upcoming session! Send in your empty water bottles with caps and have your student put them in the box in the lobby marked AVIC WATER BOTTLES. Thanks again for your continued support!

Upcoming Non-Attendance Days
Schools will be closed on Monday, February 17th for Presidents’ Day. Due to a Teacher Institute Day, Friday, February 28th is a non-attendance day for students.
Middle School Transfer Requests
Middle School Transfer requests may may be submitted February 3 through February 28. Families must complete a separate form for each student. Requests are granted based on space available so siblings are not guaranteed placement. A written decision will be communicated to families before spring break.
Once the request is approved, a student may remain at that middle school throughout his or her middle school career, as long as the student resides in District 303.
Families of students granted permission to attend a school outside of their assigned attendance are responsible for their own transportation.
Students will return to their assigned attendance area high school regardless of the middle school attended.
