Parent-Teacher Conferences - Friday, April 27
7th-11th grade conferences will be used to create or update the Individual Plan of Study (IPS). An appointment will be scheduled by the office for each student. Students will be assigned to a teacher for this conference, and this teacher will continue as the student's mentor next year. During this appointment you will review your child's credits and test scores, discuss future educational goals, and pre-enroll for next year's classes. All students entering 8th-12th grade next year are required to have an IPS before they can begin school. If you need to request a certain time for your appointment, please contact Lisa in the high school office at 620-646-5221.
Appointment notices will be sent out in mid-April.

March Project Week
Middle school students tackled the question, "What can you do to beautify Fowler?" Ideas that impressed the panel included adding lanterns to the city park, improving the appearance of the pool fence, planting drought resistant flowers, maintaining yards and homes for the elderly, and installing a new welcome sign along the highway. Any community groups or members who would like to work with students to further develop and implement one of these ideas is encouraged to contact Mrs. McDowell. We'd love to see our students ideas become realities within our community.
Thank you to those who served on our evaluation panels for Project Week:
Teachers set goals for improvement in their facilitation of students during Project Week.
Jackie Hewitt utilizes the Promethean board to create a graphic organizer while her team brainstorms ideas.
Bethany Barrera shows off her group's diorama of their plan to beautify Fowler.

This event requires a large number of adult volunteers for set up and take down. Set up will take place at 4:00 on April 25th in the high school gym. Tear down will take place the afternoon of the 26th. It also requires many volunteers to lead short mini-lessons at stations within the exhibit. All instructions and materials are provided by Body Venture. If you are willing to volunteer with set up, tear down, or with facilitating a station, please contact Corri McDowell at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to bringing another great experience to our students!
The "Buy One Get One Free" book fair is coming! Get ready for summer reading by coming to the Spring Book Fair, April 23-27. The book fair will be open before and after school as well as during the Night of the Arts and parent-teacher conferences.
Book Fair customers may help the school build classroom libraries by purchasing books through the Classroom Wish List program. In addition, the Book Fair will feature the “All for Books” program, where kids can share the thrill of reading by donating loose change to purchase books from the Book Fair for the school library. Scholastic matches monetary donations with a donation of up to one million books, which go to national non-profit organizations dedicated to helping families in need, such as the Kids in Distressed Situations and Kids in Need Foundation.
