A Note From the Principal

Wow, did winter hit us with a boom or what? We want to thank you for your support with the delayed start to school. Having that extra time in the morning to get our staff and students to school safely is well worth the challenges that come with it. Just a reminder that if we have another delayed start, please check our school website, our Fritsch Facebook page, the local news stations, and Class Dojo for up to date information. You should also receive a phone call from the district that will include the details of the delay.  Whatever news the Ground Hog brings this month, we know that spring also brings state testing and MAP testing. All of our high-stake tests are now computer based. Therefore, our 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students are going to start preparing for the assessments and will be learning strategies for answering the types of questions that they will be seeing on upcoming tests. One way you can help at home, is to have your child practice their typing skills when they have a free moment. Here are some links that you can use: freetypinggame.net and typingweb.net are in the students Google Drive accounts, but can also be accessed at any time at the web page address. We can also use your support with the state assessments by making sure to arrange your appointments and family trips around the testing window. It is very important that your child attends school on the days that are assigned for testing. The dates are listed in this newsletter, as well as on the Fritsch website. 

We would like to throw out a big thank you to our Fritsch PTA Team! Last month our PTA sponsored a few different events. We started with the Reflections contest which allowed students to show off their talents in different areas from writing, art, and photography, to dance. Next, was the reading challenge during winter break. We had a lot of students jump on board and accept the challenge and ended up reading over 1,000 pages! Finally, we ended the month of January with the Spelling Bee for 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students. It was exciting to hear what awesome spellers we have here at Fritsch! One last toast to the PTA, for their continuous efforts to support the family events we have coming up. Our Family Math Night is scheduled for Feb. 9th from 6-7:30pm. We hope that your family can join us that evening! We are also planning a Dr. Seuss Night for March 2nd. As you can see, they do a lot for our school, so please support them by becoming a member. Your $6.00 goes a long way!

As we start to head into the spring days, everyone knows what the Nevada weather can bring. The mornings can be brisk and then by afternoon it is warm and beautiful, which leads to our students leaving jackets and sweatshirts all over the playground. Please make sure to label your child’s clothing and if you are missing something take a look in the lost and found located outside the multi-purpose room.

Again, we want to thank you for all of your support and we hope that your child’s educational journey has been a positive one so far.
