Dear Freiler Parents,
As we move into November we have now completed the first trimester and parent teacher conferences. I hope each of you had the opportunity to meet with your student’s teacher and discuss your students’ progress in school. Report cards are a great way to be informed about where your child’s strength and weaknesses are and now is the time to develop an academic plan to assist them with their success in meeting their educational goals.
Congratulations to the Honor Roll students. Keep up the good work! It was a wonderful opportunity to show how many Freiler Stars we have here at Art Freiler School who work so hard to achieve this recognition.
Academic success and attendance go hand in hand. Please review the FES tardy and attendance policy and discuss the importance of attending school with your children. When students miss a day of school, they miss critical learning opportunities and multiple missed days are lost learning opportunities that just cannot be made up. We need your support to educate your children effectively and attendance plays an important role in that. Thank you for your help in making sure your children are in school!
Teachers are using Rigorous Curriculum Design (RCD) math curriculum and I am sure you are seeing a difference in the way homework looks for your children. The program supports Common Core and the students are engaging more and more in collaborative ways solving real world problems and gaining more conceptual knowledge as they go. For English Language Arts our teachers are also utilizing Rigorous Curriculum Design (RCD) units that have been created over the past two years. We are also focusing on the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and school wide we are using Science Notebooks as a way to gather data and see science through the lens of a scientist. Our hope is to educate our students using higher critical thinking skills, so they are college and career ready.
Freiler students participated in our school Spelling Bee and the winners were: Reitchelle Balderas, Owen Jackson, Maria Del Carmen River, Angela Assar, and Sahra Rahimi. On Nov. 8th our Anti-Bully poster participants will be recognized at the District Red Carpet Event at Kimball High School. The students are also gearing up for our first Music Performance on Nov. 8th. This is a great opportunity to see our Freiler stars shine as they perform. Our students are also looking forward to the Shrek play production in mid-December. The students are rehearsing, so it will be the best play ever! We also have a boys’ basketball team this year, so please come out and support them.
I also want to thank our Freiler Staff Parent Association- FSPA for their support this year. They are offering monthly restaurant events and other fundraising activities to support our staff. Thank you Freiler parents for supporting them so they can support our wonderful teaching staff.
