  A Message From Mr. Brown and Mr. Farnworth

This is the time of year that we share our gratitude for the wonderful teachers and staff we have here at Fritsch. We truly do appreciate everything they do to prepare our students to be lifelong learners. Our incredible PTA is planning events all week to show their appreciation during Teacher Appreciation Week, but a quick note to your child’s teacher is a great way to tell them thank you!  Speaking of awesome teachers and staff, this last week we were able to acknowledge our Teacher of the Year and our Classified Employee of the Year. This year we were proud to present Gina Hoppe one of our 2nd grade teachers as our Teacher of the Year and Vera Trout one of our instructional aids, as our Classified Employee of the Year. Both ladies do a phenomenal job inspiring, igniting, and instilling a love for learning in our students. Thank you both for what you do here at Fritsch!

SBAC testing is here! All of our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students will be celebrating their learning for the next two weeks. . We are very proud of our students and the progress they have made and now it is time to show how awesome they are.  Please share with them how important it is to do their best. Our theme for the testing is the “The force is strong during SBAC”. So may the force be with them! 

We are starting to wrap up the school year, and there are lot of events coming up. Please keep an eye out for any information from your child’s teacher regarding field trips, and our Facebook page for all other events. We can be found on Facebook under Edith W. Fritsch Elementary School.  On May 23rd, we will have our last Family Engagement Night, and this is going to be a really fun night. Another event to look forward to is Field Day which is on Friday, June 1st. In order to make this day successful, we need parent volunteers, so if possible please help us out. If you are interested in volunteering please contact your student’s teacher.

We want to thank you for a wonderful school year! To our 5th grade students and parents that are leaving, we want to wish you the best and thank you for being a part of our Fritsch Family. We look forward to hearing wonderful success stories and cannot wait for the day you walk across the stage at CHS to receive your high school diploma. Just remember you will always be a part of the rich tradition that we call Fritsch Elementary School. Have a wonderful and safe summer!

Mr. Brown and Mr. Farnworth
