Welcome to the 2017-18 school year!

The staff at Fuerstenau and I are really excited to get to know you and your child this year.

Just a few bits of information for you: 
  1. Placement letters will be mailed around August 10.
  2. August 28th & 29 are half days for our K students. Make sure that your child's teacher has received the schedule for your child's release, so that we know where your child is going on these days. Kindergarten classes at FECC will release at 11:42 a.m. and Y5 classes at SRE will release at 11:42am.  August 30th will be our first full day of school.
  3. Kindergarten Open house is August 24, 5:30-6:30.  This is an informal drop in for you and your child to meet the teacher and see your classroom.
  4. Morning Drop Off for August 28- August 4  To assist our kindergarteners in becoming independent in our morning routine, for the first five days the teachers will be standing in front of the school holding their classroom symbols.  Extra staff members will be assisting students to find their teacher and they will all practice walking to their classrooms together.  It is very important that your child has his/her classroom symbol attached to his/her backpack.
  5. September 1 & 4 - NO SCHOOL - Labor Day Holiday
  6. September 13 is our 1st Professional Development (Collaborative Learning Time - CLT) Day. Students will be released at 12:12 on CLT Days.
We are very excited to get the 2017-18 school year underway!  You are going to love FECC!
