Eagle Sightings May

Holly Wehner, Principal

Dear Eagle Families,

Well, here we are in our last full month of the 2021-2022 school year. Currently we are in the middle of teacher appreciation week. PTO has been working hard to make our staff feel appreciated with opportunities for special appreciative messages from families and students, as well as tasty treats for the staff to enjoy each day. Thank you to all the families out there who are not only helping with this appreciation, and thank you to all of you who are our partners each day. Thank you for making sure your child gets to school each day ready to learn. Thank you for supporting and teaming with FHES in order to help each child feel successful. Throughout the last two years, parents and caregivers have played major roles in each child’s education and safety, so we also want to show our appreciation to you.


There are many fun events as we get closer to the end of the school year. Next week is Kindergarten Kick off, which is an exciting evening event for incoming Kindergarten families! End of the year field trips and the 5th grade promotion are in planning stages, and students and teachers are so very excited! Be sure you have filled out your background check if you are planning to attend a field trip. Please call Jeanna in the front office for more information (360) 378-5209.


This month our character trait is creativity. Our school is full of wonderfully creative students who have many different talents. If you have been in our front entryway, there is a self portrait project that includes student artwork from Mr. Lobue’s K-5 students. When you are stopping by the office, take a look! As a staff we are taking on a challenge of being creative in a new way. I am sure there are many talents in every home as well. Maybe as a family, you could take on this challenge too! What new creative activity could you try?


Thank you for your continued support regarding safety. Although the mask mandate was lifted in March, we do still have in place safety protocols such as assigned seating, handwashing and sanitizing. Thank you for your understanding and patience regarding our visitor and volunteer procedures. We look forward to having visitors join us in the building in the future, but we still are unable to have family members throughout the building. Please continue to drop students off and pick up in the office or outside. We are not able to have visitors at lunch time either. Thank you so much for your help keeping students safe.


With appreciation,


Holly Wehner

ATTENDANCE COUNTS

If your child has to miss a day of class please remember to excuse the absence by emailing jeannarheinberger@sjisd.org or calling 360-370-7302.


Thank you!

Supervision

Just a reminder that there is no supervision at school until 8 am. We ask that your student does not arrive until then for safety reasons. Supervision ends at 2:45 so please remind your student to go directly to their after school plans.

Kindergarten Registration


Do you have a child who will be five on or before August 31, 2022?


It's time to register for kindergarten!

Please stop by Friday Harbor Elementary to pick up a registration packet!


Please return completed packets with vaccination records and birth certificate as soon as possible.

Kindergarten Kickoff

Kindergarten Kickoff will be May 12 from 5:30-7:30

This is for all incoming kindergarteners, their parents and/or caregivers. The adults will have the opportunity to meet with school staff and learn "everything they need to know". There will also be fun and creative centers of play and learning for the incoming kindergarteners.

Is your family planning on a move? Please let us know.

As elementary staff get ready for next school year it is extremely helpful if you tell the office of plans to switch schools or move out of the area.

Counselor's Corner May 2022

Helping our kids navigate conflicts with friends and classmates can leave us feeling helpless. Here are a couple of guides you may find helpful: 1) a Parents Guide for Helping your Child Deal with Friendship Drama, and 2) Steps for Conflict Resolution. And please feel free to contact me if your child needs support at school!
