Hello, Fruzen Families!
It’s Dr. Norton here with your Fruzen Forecast for the week of October 21.
Last week was another busy one at Fruzen. On Monday, we celebrated Hispanic Heritage Night with food, music,
crafts, and dancing. There was a strong turnout, and I have to send out huge thanks to Mrs. Nemetz, her staff crew,
and all of the families who came to eat, experience different cultures, and have fun! On Thursday, Mrs. Schieve and I
hosted our first “Falcon Forum” with a roundtable discussion for parents/guardians regarding what we are doing well
at Fruzen and areas in which we might improve. Our discussion focused mainly on the need for increasing
communication from the classrooms and finding ways for our families to find out more about what their children are
learning in the classrooms. Our next Forum will be held on Thursday, November 21, and will involve a presentation
of our school report card and school improvement plan.
This week looks to be even busier with the 4th grade “Survive Alive” house hosted by the BFD, grades 7-8 girls’
volleyball tryouts, the grades 6-8 boys’ swim season, and the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) Rec Night on
the docket. Rec Night will take place on Friday from 3:45- 5:30 p.m. for grades 4 and 5 and 6-8:00 p.m. for grades
6-8. There will be a string maze, dancing, open gym, and concessions for sale. Permissions slips for grades 4/5 will
be going home on Monday, October 21, 2019.
The NJHS service project Pop tabs and Pennies for Patients drive will also be ending on October 25, 2019. All pop
tabs and pennies collected will be going to the Ronald McDonald House in Madison. Please make sure you send in
your pop tabs and pennies this week. The winning advisory will get a reward on October 31, 2019. The NJHS thanks
you in advance for your support!
