Support Your Struggling Reader – Westerville Parent Council Event
Help support your struggling reader from pre-K through high school!
Please join the Westerville Parent Council and the International Dyslexia Association of Central Ohio for a documentary movie and Question & Answer session with a panel of experts (including a parent that has been on this journey with their own child) to discuss the “science of reading” and learn about the chief cause of reading, writing and spelling difficulties – Dyslexia.

Learn how you can support your student both at home and school and take action EARLY.

Student Directory Available Tuesday, 11/15
The Student Directory has been completed. Hard copies of the directory are available to be picked up in the office beginning on Tuesday, 11/15. For privacy purposes, the directory will not be posted online.
Student Council – Donation For The Troops
Our Fouse Student Council has adopted a troop of Army soldiers that are stationed in Afghanistan. The group of 3rd Cavalry Regiment Army Infantry soldiers, which includes Mrs. Doone’s son, Cody, deployed in May 2016. The soldiers work for countless hours/days in a row and miss many comforts of home.
We are asking Fouse families to help make their deployment a little more comfortable by donating an item or two from the attached list of suggested items. These items include basic toiletry items as well as snacks. Student Council is planning to send packages of your donated items to the troops at both Thanksgiving and Christmas. If you would like to provide a donation, items will be accepted throughout the holiday season, although the sooner the better. We want our troops to know how much we appreciate them and their service to our country. Thank you so much for your support!
Girls on the Run Coaches Needed for Spring 2017
Girls on the Run (GOTR) is a professionally designed, award-winning program exclusively for girls in grades 3-5. It is much more than a running program. GOTR of Franklin County is a part of an international program that uses the joy of running and an inspiring curriculum to teach girls about self-esteem, positive body image, health and community service.
The spring 2017 season will start the week of Monday, March 6th and run THROUGH the week of Monday, May 15th.
Coaches are needed for the Spring Season to continue this important program at Fouse! You do not need to be a "runner" to volunteer and all training is provided.
Training Dates (Only need to attend one of the 4 sessions): *Location is TBD.
As an incentive, all volunteers will be able to pre-register their daughter before registration opens for everyone else.
Girls on the Run of Franklin County will move to a lottery registration system for the spring 2017 season. This is the fairest way to conduct registration and alleviates the stress related to signing up at a specific time. There is no longer a need to dash to your computers all at once!
Spring 2017 Lottery Registration period: Registration for the lottery will open on Monday, February 6th, and close onThursday, February 9th, at 11:59 pm.
Please see the website for more info:
If you have any questions specific to the program at Fouse, you can contact Sharon Stachecki (GOTR site liaison for Fouse) at email@example.com.
