APRIL 2021

A note from Principal Louis

If you would like to request a specific teacher for your child next year, you will need to put the request in writing and send it to the Principal by April 9th. All letters need to contain specific educational reasons for your request. All requests will be reviewed. Final decisions for placement will be made by school staff. It is very important for parents to realize that your child’s current teachers put in a lot of time creating the best possible classrooms for the upcoming year. Many factors are taken into consideration and parent requests are just one of the many important factors.

Masks required

Parents and visitors please remember to wear a face mask when entering the building and waiting outdoors for your child.

Congratulations to the PHY ED. students of the month!

SUMMER STEAM REGISTRATION

As we begin the new month of March it is time to begin planning for Summer. This summer students will have the opportunity to enroll in Faribault's Summer STEAM program. Summer STEAM will be a nine week camp focused on developing students’ skills in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Breakfast and lunch will be provided at no cost. The program will run Monday-Thursday from 8AM-3PM, June 14 through August 12. The deadline for students to apply will be Wednesday, March 24th.

Because we require a Parent Signature we can't use a google form version of the registration form. Parents can print and sign the form and take a picture or scan it. They can also bring the forms to the District Office or your school building.


Please click on the link below to access the google form.

SUMMER STEAM INFORMATION 3/10/21

I am excited to inform you that we have created a google form that will allow easier access to Summer STEAM Registration. This will also help families who are Distance Learning to register as well. Attached is the link to the google form. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks!
