Dear Fulton Family,

Last week was fun filled with celebrating the 100th day of school. It was fun to see the many different ways students and staff dressed up to represent 100! We are excited this week to spread the love on Valentine's Day celebrating love and kindness throughout our Fulton Community!

We are looking forward to our Math Night on February 28th. This is an event you don't want to miss!

School counselors make a positive impact in the lives of their students. Today’s young people are living in an exciting time, with an increasingly diverse and mobile society, new technologies, and expanding opportunities. To help ensure that they are prepared to become the next generation of parents, workers, leaders and citizens, students need support, guidance and opportunities during their school years.
