Cooperative Agreement with Meade USD 226

The Board of Education of Fowler USD 225 has officially entered a 2 year cooperative agreement with Meade USD 226 to provide educational and activity programming to Fowler students in grades 7-12 beginning next school year.

Fowler Grade School will remain open to serve students up through 6th grade. We are confident that we will be able to provide a great learning program and atmosphere at FGS next year!

The district is currently collecting questions from parents and making final decisions about some aspects related to next year. We will release a special edition of the school newsletter soon which will address details from the cooperative agreement as well as details about the remaining elementary school.

All parents and guardians are encouraged to visit with Mrs. McDowell or their child's classroom teacher or mentor to discuss any questions or concerns.

Summer School

Summer school is an opportunity for your student to refresh and reinforce both math and reading academics, along with a daily enrichment activity. We will be partnering with the public library again this year, allowing your student to participate in their summer reading program as well. We look forward to seeing everyone there!

Summer school is for students entering kindergarten through 6th grade in the fall. The days run from 8:30-11:30, enabling students to eat lunch before returning home if so desired. This summer the classes will begin on June 6th and finish on June 30th. Enrollment forms will be available in the parent folder later this month.

Fowler Jr./Sr. High School will not be offering a summer school session this year.
