PTO Meeting

Our first PTO Meeting of the year will be held on Wednesday, September 22 @ 6:00 PM in the Media Center. ALL parents are welcome to attend and learn how they can help enhance their child's educational experience.

PBIS Training Day

On Friday our Eagles participated in our PBIS "Training Day" at Eisenhower. Classroom teachers worked with students to review S.O.A.R. expectations throughout the different areas of the building. A copy of our S.O.A.R. Matrix was also sent home for families to review.

Below are a few pictures from our Training Day.

4th Grade Making Connections

4th grade had a great first week of school! We used Playdoh to share a fun fact about ourselves on the first day of school. We also started building our classroom communities through our morning meetings. We have a chunk of time each morning to check in with each other and share. This will be a great time to connect. Recess was a lot of fun this week as we caught up with all our 4th grade friends.

This year Mrs. Arnold and Mrs. Descamps are teaching 4th grade. The students will be able to switch classes for science and social studies. We are looking forward to fun 4th grade traditions such as fossil kits, Market Day, and the DTE Energy program.

Picture Day & 20-21 Yearbooks

Picture day was Thursday, September 16th. If for any reason your child missed picture day, please know a retake day will be scheduled and information will be forthcoming.

Also, 20-21 school yearbooks have arrived and were distributed last week.

iPad Update...

We are in the process of distributing iPads for this school year. Your child's teacher will let you know what day the iPads will be coming home. If you have any unpaid fines, please pay them as soon as possible. Please talk with your child about where their "home base" will be to charge the iPad each night. iPads should come to school fully charged each day.

A Great Resource in Our Own Backyard

CARE is a resource in our community that helps families and individuals who are experiencing difficulties with mental health or substance abuse. CARE's Student Assistance program offers families the opportunity to receive a thorough assessment for children who are experiencing mental health issues. CARE will then provide resources to assist with concerns. CARE also is a great place to attend parenting classes for Early Childhood through Teen. Speciality classes related to anger management and play and learn groups for younger children are also programs provided through CARE. For more information or for a referral to CARE's Student Assistance program please contact our social worker Mrs. Madeleine at 586-439-6677 or contact CARE at 586-541-CARE.

WANTED: Destination Imagination Teams

Destination Imagination is an educational program in which student teams, made up of 2-7 members, solve open-ended Challenges and present their solutions at fun, local Tournaments. Teams are tested to think on their feet, work together and devise original solutions that satisfy the requirements of the Challenges, and develop innovative thinking strategies. Participants gain more than just basic knowledge and skills, they learn to unleash their imaginations and take unique approaches to problem solving.

Health, Safety, & COVID-19 Communication

We hope our Ike families are staying healthy. Fraser Public Schools' intention is to return to a normal school environment and routine for the 2021-2022 school year.

When a student or staff member tests positive for COVID-19, he/she should notify the Macomb County Health Department at (586) 463-3750 during normal business hours. Additionally, families and staff members should contact the school administrator. The individual should stay home and isolate for at least 10 days from the first date of symptoms or 10 days from the test date if asymptomatic AND fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications and improved symptoms.

Fraser Public Schools will be reporting all COVID-19 positive cases to the Macomb County Health Department (MCHD). The MCHD will investigate to determine if any additional students or staff should be quarantined. We will continue to work with our Health Department to support these efforts. Please refer to the Macomb County Health Department's Parent Toolkit for more information about our Covid protocols.

Please continue to reach out to keep us updated about your family's health and notify the office if someone in your household tests positive for Covid-19 or if you find out that your child has been exposed to someone who has tested positive. This information will help mitigate the spread and keep our Twain community healthy.

FPS Mask Policies

Masks are optional for all staff, students and visitors on campus. We will have masks available in all of our buildings for anyone who needs one. Fraser Public Schools encourages everyone who is not fully vaccinated to wear a face covering. Facial coverings are a safe, and proven strategy to prevent secondary transmission of this aggressive Delta variant in schools. Masks are primarily intended to reduce the emission of virus-laden droplets. They also help reduce inhalation of these droplets by the wearer. We ask everyone to respect each individual’s choice whether or not to wear a mask.

Masks must be worn on Fraser Public School buses. The CDC requires masks to be worn on school buses.

Health Screenings

As we have said before, please keep your child home if they are feeling sick. Teach your child to cover their cough or sneeze and wash their hands or use hand sanitizer often. We encourage you to perform daily self-assessments for COVID-19, but the daily screener is no longer required. Although not required, we have linked the CDC's Coronavirus Self-Checker HERE for those looking for a resource.

Free Breakfasts & Lunches Continue

The State of Michigan will continue to provide a free breakfast and lunch for all student who wants them throughout the 2021-2022 school year. We will provide monthly calendars with scheduled meals as we have in the past, but families do not need to pre-order. Although note required, we do ask. that families complete the Lunch Application at By doing so you help ensure the school receives additional funding.
