Students and Staff - Giving Back This Holiday Season!
Social Workers at Frontier Schools know that the holiday season can be financially tough on many of our families. Each year, during the holiday season, each of our 4 Social Workers partner with Cerner to adopt 5 Frontier families from each of our four campuses – for a total of 20 families. Social Workers organize, coordinate and donate countless hours to make sure Frontier families in need, have gifts under their tree.
Melissa Meyer, FSE Social Worker, is always going the extra mile for Frontier School of Excellence. She works diligently all year long to ensure a little extra holiday cheer for many FSE students and their families. Because of her relentless efforts and the generous donations from the community, more than 35 FSE families were able to have a nice holiday season. School offices were filled to the brim with donations from businesses, community partners and individuals. Donations included new toys, clothing, gift cards, frozen turkeys, cash and other great gifts.
If you’re interested in adopting a Frontier family for the 2017 holiday season, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
National Anti-bullying Speaker Visits Frontier Schools
On January 18th, Frontier invited back People Choice Award winning illusionist and ventriloquist, Kevin Horner, to our elementary and middle school buildings. Kevin and his puppets had students and teachers laughing, crying, and in earnest thought about the impact of actions on other people. His show, "One Friend Can Make a Difference", inspired important dialogue among teachers and students about respect and friendship.
At Frontier Schools, we recognize that education extends beyond academic instruction. Students are faced with social and emotional challenges in interpersonal relationships at home and at school. We believe that assisting our students in developing healthy social skills and empathy for others, is not only guiding them to become college ready, but productive and responsible citizens as well.
National School Choice Week (NSCW)!
January 22nd through January 28th was NSCW. Held every January, this week shines a positive spotlight on effective education options for every child. The goal of this week is to raise public awareness of all types of education options for children. These options include traditional public schools, public charter schools, magnet schools, online learning, private schools, and homeschooling.
Frontier students celebrated all week long in several ways! Elementary students learned and performed the NSCW official dance, some campuses drew pictures and wrote why they love their school, senior students at FSE posed for a NSCW scarf throw and students from all schools posed for great celebratory pictures. A fun week had by all!
