A Note from Mr. Brown and Mr. Farnworth
We hope that you had a wonderful holiday season and that the New Year brings health and happiness to your family.

We are very excited to share the news that Fritsch Elementary School was rated a 4 star school on the Nevada School Performance Framework. According to the guidelines released by the Nevada State Department of education, a 4 star school is “a commendable school that has performed well for all students and subgroups.  A four star school demonstrates satisfactory to strong academic performance for all students.  Further, the school is successfully promoting academic progress for all student groups as reflected in closing opportunity gaps.  The school does not fail to meet expectations for any group on any indicator.  Schools identified for targeted support and improvement are not eligible to be classified as four star school or higher.” 

 As we prepare for winter to finally arrive, we want to remind you of a few things. First, we try very hard to keep the school clear of snow and ice, but in the morning please be especially careful. We ask that the students stay off any ice on the playground.  If they do not have snow boots on, they must stay on the black top and are not allowed on the field.  Please, label all of your child’s coats and hoodies with their name.  With the Nevada weather the way it is, some days warm up and jackets end up getting left on the playground. Our lost and found pile grows tremendously this time of the year! If you know your child is missing an article of clothing, please check out the lost and found, which is located next to the B Building exit to the playground. 

If the weather becomes a concern, the school district has implemented a two hour delayed start to school. This means that school will not start until 10:25am. Due to the late start, we will not be serving breakfast in our cafeteria on these mornings. In the event that we do have a delayed start, it will be broadcast through the local television news programs, a recorded message will be sent by phone, it will also be posted on the district and Fritsch websites and will also be available on our Fritsch social media pages.

With the second half of the school year starting, we need to begin thinking about all of the state mandated tests that will be here before we know it.  We would like to ask a big favor and request that you please take a look at the testing dates outlined in this newsletter and try not to plan your family vacations during these testing events. It is imperative that students be in their seats during these tests.

We look forward to an awesome second half to our school year. If there is anything that we can do to support you and your child’s academic experience, please do not hesitate to contact us. Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!

Mr. Brown and Mr. Farnworth
