Walk to School Day

Walk to School Day will be Wednesday, October 9 before school. Rumor has it we may even have Sparty in attendance supporting the students who participate at Running Club and the students who will be walking to school that day. It is always a great opportunity to embrace the importance of healthy living and especially for students to see adults modeling its importance.

Traffic

Please remember to follow the basic transportation rules when dropping off in the morning and picking up at the end of the day. We  do not want any students crossing the street to enter a car. We request that cars only park on the West side of 15th Ave when dropping off and picking up children. We also ask that cars are not left unattended on in front of Folwell on 15th Ave. Traffic needs to continue to flow so students can be dropped off and picked up in an efficient manner. If you need to stop into the school in the morning then you need to park on 7th St or behind the school and walk up to Door #1. We also ask you for your patience when proceeding so our 5th grade patrol members and the people they are crossing remain safe.

Fall Conferences

Conferences are fast approaching. The majority of them will take place on October 10 and 15 from 4:00-8:00. Due to some grade levels having larger classes they may need to take place on an alternative date and time. We do schedule multiple student families together so your conferences will take place one after the other. Look for information to be coming home soon with your child. We do provide daycare in the media center from 4:00-8:00 on the 10th and 15th.

We Need Your Help!

Folwell is interested in old Halloween outfits that your children have outgrown. Please feel free to donate these costumes to Folwell Elementary. Costumes can be brought to the office of the school nurse. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
