September Newsletter

A Note from the Principal

What a wonderful start to the school year we experienced! As a school community, we were excited to see so many familiar faces return to Francone and are always thrilled to greet all of our new students, as well! Falcon Express, held annually on the Saturday prior to the start of school, always serves as a great way to kick off the year. Another opportunity to visit with the teacher will take place on McFamily Fun Night and Watch DOG Kick Off, held September 11th and our Parent Conference Day, held October 8th.

In the last two weeks, we have been able to improve our dismissal times for car rider and have made every effort to have our buses departing from school as soon as we are able. We hope you have seen improvements in the time your children are arriving at home! We would like to ask for the support of our school community in ensuring that all of our Falcons arrive to school on time and stay for the entire instructional day, as students who are tardy or frequently leaving early can miss out on valuable content. We want to give our Falcons every opportunity to SOAR!

Francone is a PBIS campus, which means we have a variety of incentives in place to support student behavior. Have you heard about our SOAR Bucks? Our students have begun collecting these in an effort to spend them at different special events throughout the year. You might see items come home that were purchased at our weekly SOAR store or hear about big ticket items that can be bought at our Holiday Shop in December.

Flu season is almost here!

Pre-K-5th grade students can receive a flu shot here at school on October 26th in the afternoon. Parents must sign and send back the waiver in order for students to receive the immunization. For additional information, please contact Nurse Saad at 281-897-4515.
