Help get the word out about K4 & Kindergarten Roundup!!!
It’s almost K4 & Kindergarten Roundup Time on March 1st. Be sure and tell your neighbors, family and friends who have K-4 or Kindergarten age children to come check out what FHCS has to offer as they look to begin their children’s formal education (fliers are available to pass out).
We will have two sessions, one in the morning from 9:00-10:00 am and the other in the evening from 6:30-7:30 pm. Prospective K4 and Kindergarten students are invited to come along with their parents. There will be information and a tour for the parents. Children will spend time with our K4 and Kindergarten teachers during part of the time. Pre-registration is not required, but appreciated. Interested families can pre-register by calling the school office.
Re-Enrollment for 2019-2020
Our annual re-enrollment period will be coming up soon. Each year the first two weeks of March are set aside as a dedicated time for current families to reserve seats for next year at a reduced enrollment cost of $40 per child. Current families also have first choice to fill empty seats if they have additional students they want to enroll. Be watching next week for more information.
Our Spring Parent-Teacher Conferences fall just before Spring Break this year. To try and meet the needs of as many families as possible, we will have P/T conferences on Thursday, March 7th, from 4-7pm and on Friday, March 8th, from 8am to 12pm. There are no classes on Friday, March 8th.
