SBAC Testing is wrapping up.... Please continue to make sure that your students are getting to school on time. Testing begins first thing in the morning so they need to be in their seats when the bell rings!



We would like to congratulate our Fritsch Employee of the Year Mrs. Tanisha Chacon and our Fritsch Teacher of the Year Mrs. Mary Wertjes! You are both so deserving! We are lucky to have you as part of our Fritsch Family!

       A Note From Mr. Brown and Mr. Farnworth

 I am almost afraid to say it, but Spring is here!  We had snow on the playground just last week, but we are excited for the new life and rejuvenation that the changing season brings.   We have some very eventful weeks ahead of us leading up to the end of our school year.  This time of year is very busy between end of school field trips and activates and the major assessments that our students have to complete before the school year ends. The biggest assessment is the SBAC which is the annual state test that all 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students are required to take. This is used to determine the annual measurable progress Fritsch Elementary made over the year. This is very important, because it is used to help determine our Star Rating, and will showcase how awesome our Fritsch Elementary School students are! Please take a look at the testing dates and try your best to plan appointments around it, so your child is at school on the days of testing.  There are three parts of the test for both math and reading and each part can take anywhere from 90 minutes to 2 hours. Even though the testing seems extensive, we have complete confidence in our Fritsch students.  Our leadership students have created a theme for testing week which is “Step up to the plate and score big on the SBAC”.  We are going to be planning some fun activities around this theme. The week before testing we will be kicking off our celebration with some fun dress up days, please check out the days near the bottom of the newsletter.

With Spring on the horizon, we start to see warmer weather. That being said please keep our dress code in mind when sending the kids to school. One of the biggest safety issues on the playground is students wearing open toe sandals and flip flops.  Please save these for weekend activities and keep the toes covered at school. We want to avoid any accidents on the playgrounds.

Our PTA will be wrapping up the school year, and that means they are looking for new board members. The positions available are President, VP1, VP2, Treasurer, Secretary, Membership, Fundraising, Hospitality, Auditing, and Nominations.  

Please consider becoming a member of our board and continue the awesomeness that the Fritsch PTA brings to our school!

As always, if there is anything we can do for you, please let us know.  We look forward to a very busy but exciting end to our school year!
