Weekly Bulletin September 16, 2016

Weekly Bulletin

We were glad to welcome our new Kindergarten class this week! They are the Class of 2029!  It was a seamless transition for students and teachers, and all have settled into a structured routine thanks to our dedicated & enthusiastic Kindergarten teaching team.

It was wonderful to see so many parents at FWS for Back to School Night.  We reverted back to having classroom visits only with the entire school in one night.  Please let us know if you liked this style or have any concerns about how the evening was run.

If you are in need of attending a Confidentiality Meeting, one has been scheduled for September 20th at 8:00am in the Main Office. Please attend if you would like to volunteer at FWS. Confidentiality meetings and CORI reports must be completed before you are scheduled to volunteer. Thank you.

Our CARES motto has changed!  Since adopting the Falcon as our mascot last year, a committee of staff members developed a new motto to align with this called "FW Falcons SOAR".  Ask your children about our new behavior acronym:
                             S = Self Control
                             O = Outstanding Effort
                             A = Acts of Kindness
                             R = Respect
We are all now SOARing into the 2016/2017 school year!
