Francestown Elementary School

October 5, 2018

From the Principal's Desk

Fall has arrived and with it the wonderful cooler weather. My drive to school is filled with the vibrant colors of the fall foliage. This is my favorite time of the year.

Students and staff have really settled into routines and as I walk through the classrooms, I am noticing students engaging in deep cognitive thinking, building strong communities, and of course having loads of fun.

The highlight of the week was preparing for the community supper that happened on Thursday evening at the Francestown Community Church. Students, staff, and families gathered together to serve and enjoy the community atmosphere. Many of the classrooms prepared dishes for the event. A huge thank you to all who donated food and/or time. It is always such a wonderful experience to see our students giving back to the community.

Remember, there is no school for student on Monday, October 8. Teachers are having a Professional Development Day. Enjoy your nice long weekend! I hope you have some time to enjoy the weather.

Have a great weekend,


Information from the School

Parent Information Night

An invitation was sent out last week about our upcoming Parent Information Night. If you haven't had a chance to RSVP, please do so by clicking on the form below. We have a great evening planned for you. This interactive evening will focus on how we promote positive behavior in school. We will help you understand our behavior expectations at FES as well as the language we use as we help our students to learn self-regulation skills. We look forward to this great evening. Child care will be available and pizza and juice will be served to the children.

Did you know that Mrs. Ford updates the Events Calendar almost every day? In addition, our staff have been working on updating their classroom websites and these will be up very soon.
