We had another great week and were busy with our studies and activities while getting ready for Applefest on Saturday. Applefest 2014 is Saturday, September 20th from 10:00 to 3:00 in the beautiful Fair Haven Park. We hope you can join us. There's something for everyone even if it is connecting with friends and neighbors before winter moves in. See you there!
All grades began taking baseline assessments this week. Many students actually said they liked them. Mr. Kyhill and Mr. Ripley helped all classes along with teachers because the assessments are taken on our Chromebooks and iPads. All classes will be finished next week. The baseline assessments tell us what we need to work on throughout the year. We will assess again at the end of the year and check our progress.
Wednesday, September 24th, is an early release day for us and all schools in the district. We dismiss at 11:30, students will have lunch, buses will run and crossing guards will be on duty.
Wednesday evening, Middle School (grades 6, 7 and 8) will hold their Student-Parent Night at 6:30 in the gym. Come early and view the power point slide show of our annual rafting trip. Students bringing a parent will receive a free homework pass.
We conclude our week with school pictures on Thursday and Friday. A schedule has been set home for the day and time for each class picture. And, CROP WALK 2014 is Sunday, September 28th, beginning at 1:30 in the park. Everyone is invited to join the walk.
Hope to see you at Applefest! These are busy times at FHGS!!
