Fulton Focus

For the parents and patrons of the Fulton School District

October 6, 2017

A message from the Superintendent

Dear Parents and Patrons,

Homecoming activities last week were very positive. Forty-Three groups participated in the parade which is almost double from last year. All students, pre-K through seniors, had an opportunity to participate in some type of activity. Fulton High School Principal, Chris Mincher, indicated that over 400 students attended the Homecoming Dance on Saturday evening which is a significant increase in participation from prior years. KUDOS to our Fulton High School Student Council for planning, organizing and implementing Homecoming Activities!

Fulton Special Olympians participated in the South Callaway Special Olympics last week. You may have noted pictures in The Fulton Sun. All participants and student sponsors will be recognized by your Board of Education in November.

This Focus includes the general schedule for upcoming Parent-Teacher Conferences. Our teachers indicate that parent support is a critical factor for student success. To me, this means daily support, discussing school activities with your student(s), communicating with teacher(s) and monitoring student progress through the Parent Portal. And, later this month please take advantage of the opportunity to participate in your child’s parent teacher conference. Each building administrator will communicate individual building schedules and processes. Prior to the conference you may wish to review an article on MOPARENT.COM, Making the Most of Parent Teacher Conferences, the link is: http://moparent.com/making-the-most-of-parent-teacher-conferences.

Finally, be sure to ask your pre-K and elementary students what animals they saw at Ag Awareness Day today.

Thank you for sending great students for us to work with!


Jacque A. Cowherd, Ed.D.
