A Message from the Principal

Please mark your calendars for Fall Parent-Teacher Conferences.


Our fall Parent Teacher Conferences will take place Thursday, October 13, from 4:00-7:00 PM. We will again plan on conferences that are scheduled digitally via Google Meet. More information will be shared the week prior to and week of conferences.


Our conferences are meant to offer time for brief conversations regarding your student's progress. If you require a more lengthy discussion regarding your student or are unable to meet within the time and space available, please email or call the teacher and arrange a mutual time to meet.


The success of our students depends on a strong partnership between our school, families, and community. Every day is an opportunity to connect. Never hesitate to reach out.



With Saber Pride,

Mr. Vuolo

Online Absence/Attendance Form

As a reminder, when reporting a student absent for any reason, please communicate this using the online absence/attendance form here. This is a NEW form this year so if you bookmarked or made a shortcut to the old form from last year, please update. If your child is out sick, the form will also collect information about the symptoms and sickness your child is experiencing so our nursing staff can respond with next steps. Thank you for taking the time to complete this form as it really helps to streamline our processes. The form is located on our website under Parent/Student Info as well as a big button on each school’s home page

Early Dismissals

Parents/guardians that will be picking up your student during the school day need to complete the Absence Reporting form (also found on the FHS website). After the form is completed, your child will receive an email. This email serves as their early dismissal pass. Students should show their email to their teacher in order to come down to the office at the appropriate time.

AP Exam Ordering is Underway - Action Needed by Sept 29!

Forte Theatre Presents: The Sound of Music

The hills are alive with the sound of music! Join Forte Theatre Company for their mainstage debut at the Saber Center - and one of the most beloved musicals of all time. In Austria, 1938, an exuberant young governess brings music and joy back to a broken family, only to face danger and intrigue as the Nazis gain power. With music and lyrics by Rodgers & Hammerstein, a cast of some of Milwaukee's top professional talent and FPS students playing some of the VonTrapp children, this is a theatrical experience not to be missed!


October 7th - 16th / Fri & Sat @ 7 pm, Sun @ 2 pm
