The Falcon Flash

Foskett Ranch Elementary Newsletter

November 28, 2018


Students continue to rehearse for the Starstruck shows tonight and tomorrow, and they are excited about performing for everyone. Please scroll down for detailed information regarding specific instructions.

Students are currently taking the second diagnostic assessment in the iReady program. The assessment is designed to measure how the students have progressed in the program after twelve weeks of practice. The diagnostic assessment takes place at school. Students can take a break from iReady until they finish the diagnostic.

The rainy season has begun! On rainy days, students report to the cafeteria upon arrival to school, and they sit with their grade levels in designated areas. When the 8:13 bell rings, students will leave the cafeteria one grade level at a time to report to their classrooms. Morning and afternoon recesses will be held in the classrooms. For lunch, students will report to the cafeteria to eat and participate in exercise videos such as Adventure to Fitness and Go Noodle. When the Starstruck video is published, students may also watch it during lunch as they enjoy dancing along with each class' performance.
