A Note From Mr. Brown and Mr. Farnworth
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
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.
