Thank You!

Our Folwell fifth graders want to thank all of you for your support.  By attending events like our basketball game, shopping at our used book sale, and turning in box tops and gift card orders, Folwell families have helped us raise nearly $6,000!

At the end of May, our fifth grade students will be taking an unforgettable three day trip to Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center in Lanesboro, MN.  Students look forward to this trip for years and it lives up to the hype each year.  Our Folwell fifth graders will take several classes while at Eagle Bluff, but will also celebrate the closing of the Folwell chapters of their educational journeys.

Thank you Folwell families for significantly reducing the cost of this trip for all of our fifth graders!

Camp Kesem - FREE

Please check out the information about Camp Kesem.  Former Folwell student, Makenzi Tijerina, works at the camp and reached out to Folwell about openings that are available in July.

What? Camp Kesem. This overnight camp offers traditional overnight camp activities, including: hiking, biking, swimming.  

Who? Kids whose parents have or have had cancer

When? July 1st – July 7th 2018

Where? Held at Rainbow Day Camp in Fredonia, WI. 

How much? FREE!! Counselors raise $500 to cover the cost of attending camp. At this point, families do have to arrange their student’s transportation to and from camp – though the camp is working on possible alternatives. 

Why? Because no one should have to go through their parent’s cancer alone
