Foskett Ranch Elementary Newsletter

September 19, 2018

NOTE FROM THE PRINCIPAL...

Check out the new format for our weekly newsletter! We hope you will enjoy this newsletter and will be able to read it on your phones and tablets better than our previous format.


On Monday students in grades K - 5 will participate in an anti-bullying assembly. A group called Breaking Borders will present information in the format of a play for grades K - 5. After the presentation, grades 4 and 5 will take a brief stretch break and will return for a workshop to further explore/discuss the concepts learned during the presentation. On Friday, October 28th, 3rd grade will work with the Assistance League to further learn more about the topic of bullying. Please be sure to ask your children to tell you some of the key ideas they learn during the assembly.

Thank you to those who went on-line and created a Parent Portal and updated your student(s)' emergency contact information.

*As a fun bonus the first class from each grade to return all their forms will receive a special treat!

The Great American Fundraiser

Be on the lookout for The Great American Fundraiser packets to come home with your student this week. This year The Great American Fundraiser has much more than cookie dough. There will also be a wide variety of items along with cookie dough. You can shop through catalogs sent home with your student or online at www.gaschoolstore.com. Click "I'm a parent or student" Use Organizaton ID# 2692150.

Our FRES families have done an amazing job in past years supporting this important fundraiser. Thank you for your support!

Donations For The Health Office

We are in need of kids clothes for our nurse’s office. Sometimes kids are in need of a change of clothes at school and having options for them is key to getting them back to class quickly.

We are in need of boys pants and shorts size 8 and up to have on hand for any accidents that may occur.

The Book Fair Was A Great Success!

The Fall book fair brought in more than double profits from previous years!!! Your support for our book fair not only excites your student to read, it also helps us fill our school library. All of this money will be used for new books for your kids to enjoy and check out of the library. Thank to all of our volunteers and for your support!
