Fernan Family Reading Night: Literacy Luau- 3/16, 5:30-7:15

We are excited to announce Birds of Prey Northwest is coming to visit our 3rd-5th graders this April!

Our local Kiwanis Club has awarded Fernan a grant to offer this exciting assembly for our 3rd-5th grade students. Families have an opportunity to prepurchase a book that will be autographed by the local authors, by Deborah Lee Rose or Jane Veltkamp.

Send a check, cash or money order for $17.95 (this includes tax) to Birds of Prey Northwest with your child or bring it to office. Please designate which book/s you are ordering. If your child is in K-2, you can still order a book. Thank you!

Parents, we are looking for your feedback! Please read below for more information, and click on the link to take the state engagement survey.

Idaho’s custom parent survey is an important part of our focus on serving and engaging parents in our schools’ work. This survey gives you the chance to tell us how schools are doing in meeting your needs.

We will use these survey responses to find ways to maximize satisfaction, engagement, and communication. Additionally, the state will report the results and the number of responses on Idaho’s school report card https://idahoschools.org/

Thank you in advance for participating in this survey.
