Tips for Parents:
Coffee With the Counselor
This year we are starting a new program called Coffee with the Counselor! The topics will all be related to the book Wonder. The first topic we will be discussing is bullying. It is not necessary to have read the book in order to attend. We will be talking about what we teach our students about bullying and how you can reinforce the message at home.
Date: Friday, October 19th
Time: 7:45 am - 8:30 am
I'm First: Small Group for First Generation College Go-ers
We are looking to pair each participant with a "first gen" adult in our community to exchange 2 letters a year. If you would like to volunteer for this, please let us know by completing the following form.
New to Farragut Schools?
Two programs that are helpful to new students ...
Buddy Benches: We have a Buddy Bench located on each of our three playgrounds. Students can use the bench to help find classmates to play with during recess.
Meet and Greet : All students who are new to FIS (& did not come from FPS) met for a special session to meet the counselors and administrators. During the session they got an opportunity to share about their transition to a new school and receive a special gift!
