A Note From Mr. Brown and Mr. Farnworth

Welcome to March Madness! We have been busy diving into the testing season. All of our English Language Learners participated in the ACCESS Test that determines their proficiency of the English Language. Our fourth grade students just finished the NAEP (National Assessment of Educational Progress) or better known as the Nation’s Report Card. We heard that our students were very well prepared and were very polite during testing. News like that is always awesome to hear! Now, we have to prepare for the big one, the SBAC, which our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students will be taking at the end of April.

Last Thursday night, we were treated to the sweet sounds of the District Band-O-Rama. Our fifth grade students sounded awesome! It is a miracle to get all of the elementary schools, middle school, and high school students to play along together, but when they do, it is really something special. A big thank you to our music teacher Mrs. Melsheimer, she did an outstanding job preparing our band students for this festival! Now she is working with our choir for the Choir Palooza, which will take place on March 16th, and I am sure it is going to be just as awesome.

We hope you had the opportunity to join us for our PTA Sponsored Dr. Seuss Reading Night on March 2nd. Along with our Book Fair, we had some really fun activities to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s Birthday. We really appreciate the wonderful job our PTA did with this. They are such an important part of our Fritsch Family.  They will be holding elections in the near future, and they are always looking for new faces on the board. Please consider being a part of this great team!

On March 14th and 15th, we will have minimum days in order to conduct our Spring Parent Conferences. The idea behind these conference is to meet with parents of the students that have a Literacy Plan in place, or if there is a concern that needs to be addressed, so you may not be contacted for a meeting. If you feel it is necessary to have a meeting, please contact your child’s teacher and they will arrange a time with you.

Spring Break starts on Monday, March 20th, and goes through March 24th.  We will return to school on Monday, March 27th.    If you are looking for ideas to keep your child in an academic frame of mind during break, we ask that they continue reading and participate in our Spring Break Reading Challenge. 

Have you seen our students in their florescent green sashes? These students are part of our Leadership Club, and they have been deputized as Safety Patrol Officers. They will be monitoring our hallways during recess and are here to help our students get to the playground, the cafeteria and their classrooms in the morning. They have also been helping with our drop off area and are requesting that you please pull all the way forward before releasing your child from the car.   Keep an eye out for the florescent sash!

As always, we appreciate the work that you do with your child each night at home.  In order for your child to get that full educational experience it is crucial that we work as a team. Parents/ guardians, teachers, students, and administrators, there is no better team. 


Happy spring!

Dan Brown and Cody Farnworth
