Farragut Weekly Updates - 10/28/17

From the desk of Principal Ngo

Dear Farragut Foxes,

No one does Fall quite as foxy and fabulous as our Farragut Foxes! My first Farragut Fall Festival did not disappoint! In fact, I was blown away by the creativity, hard work, family, and fun captured in a single day! Thank you for all the amazing volunteers who made everything flow so effortlessly. From face painting to singing to building, organizing, and crafting, our community’s hidden talents shined all day long!


Our last full week of October ended with daily Red Ribbon Week celebrations. Thank you to all the volunteers who planned and decorated our school to help students reflect on how to make healthy choices!


October ends with a bang with our annual Halloween Parade on Tuesday morning! Check out the details below for all the important information. Remember, students have a full day of school ahead of them after the parade, so don’t forget a change of clothes and leave the sweets and treats for after school hours.


Have a wonderful weekend!


Your proud principal,

Rebecca Ngo
