Principal Allison’s Notes

The second half of the year is in full swing!

It is hard to believe that we are already halfway through the school year! I am incredibly proud of our growth and continued reflection. Your students are stepping up to the plate and taking accountability for their learning. This is a direct reflection of the community we are building.

I do want to reiterate the importance of attendance and staying healthy. This time of year, it does become a challenge as viral illness is at its peak. We realize that illness is an inevitable part of life, especially with cold/flu season upon us. Students who have a fever over 100.4, vomiting/diarrhea, or difficulty breathing (excessive cough) should stay home to be monitored to prevent the spread of illness. Once these symptoms have subsided, they may return to school. Students also demonstrating these symptoms during the day will be sent home from school. Our goal is to keep the environment as healthy as possible.

Important Considerations:
  • Our School Hours are: 8am-3:30pm
    • (Breakfast is served at 7:45am and Drop-off begins at 7:40am. We are starting instruction at 8:05am and breakfast will not be served after 8:10am).
  • Students are marked Tardy @ 8:15am
    • When a student is tardy 15 minutes a day/signed out early, that makes for 75 minutes of lost instruction a week. This can impact their achievement over time.
  • See the picture below to see the state definitions around attendance.
  • We realize that there are tough work commitments, family schedules/issues, appointments, and other unexpected events and we are here to partner with you to create a plan for your students success and achievement. Feel free to reach out at any time with any barriers that we may be able to provide support.

Keep in mind that we are a small campus, but with that is an opportunity to provide your student with a strong sense of community. Some tips to help stay in the know about all things happening on campus:

  • Be sure you are signed up for your student’s Dojo Accounts. This will be a daily connection to all things going on in the classroom.
  • Like and Follow-us on Facebook.
  • Report Absences at this link: https://fpacad.org/report-absence/

I am so blessed to be a part of your student’s academic journey. Our next newsletter will be out by April 1, 2024.

Tigers ROAR!

November & December- Teacher of the Month

Ms. Garcia was the November Teacher Month

Time for a shout out to our November Teacher of the Month, Ms. Garcia. She teaches kindergarten and brings a warm touch to every space. She loves her students and works hard to help them achieve and grow each day.

She says her favorite thing about being a Tiger is “The commitment to the children and community. Also the transparency with the parents and staff.” We are so fortunate to have her on our team!

Ms. Lives was our December Teacher

Let’s give a shout out to our 3rd grade Teacher, Mrs. Lives! She is our December Teacher of Month. She says the following about our campus: “I love being a tiger because of the organization I work for, but especially because of the team I work beside. As a staff, we really are a team. We are there for each other – as both educators and humans.

I really enjoy coaching. I find it very rewarding to be able to establish connections in and out of the classroom. I spent many years playing basketball, including college so I understand the balance of learning and the discipline to play a sport.

I graduated from Hanover College in May with two degrees – one in Elementary Education and another in Mathematics. I participated in many clubs, played a sport, and was a tutor. This is my first year teaching, but have had previous student teaching opportunities in both the private and public arena.

I have a passion for kids and sports, and at FPACAD I get the best of both worlds. Tigers ROAR!”
