October Newsletter

October 3, 2016


This week is Fire Safety week, and the FSJ Fire Department will be putting on a special assembly next week. We will be having a special assembly on Thursday, October 13, at 1 pm and the fire department will discuss fire prevention and safety at the assembly.


We will be having a book fair in the library all week (October 4-12th). Students will have opportunities throughout the week to come to the library to see the book fair and purchase books! Parents can drop in as well. Please call the school for parent drop in times. Feel free to purchase a book for your child’s classroom teacher.

The PAC got off to a great start this year with several new attendees at the first meeting on September 20th. We enjoyed sharing our new vision and focus at the Open House and thank all those that signed our Interest Sheets, letting us know how they are able to help in the school.  It’s never too late to get involved. Join us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/duncancranpac/), where we will be posting meeting minutes, agendas, and event notices. Or check the PAC notice board outside the office. Our next meeting is on Tuesday, October 18th at 6:30 PM in the library. Free babysitting is provided by a responsible Duncan Cran student.

Parents will be doing Booster Juice orders again this year. Profits will be used for fun activities for your children and to contribute to materials, services, and activities that enhance your children’s learning. Booster Juice orders are due October 6th, with the first delivery on October 13th. Join us on Facebook if you are able to help counting up orders and delivering to classrooms.
