Plus, the prices are competitive! So, this summer as the temperature hits over 100 degrees and lines at the checkout counter are a mile long … You will have already purchased your child's school supplies from the comfort of your home! You can make your purchase right now, by clicking the link: Fouse Elementary 2018-19 School Supply Kits. Deadline to order a 2018-19 kit will be June 30th. The kits arrive directly to Fouse and will be available to pick up at the Back to School day in August.

Ken Ballinger to Retire - Thank You Cards Requested by Wednesday, May 23rd
Fouse’s head custodian Ken Ballinger is retiring after this school year. Ken has been described as dedicated, caring, compassionate, professional, friendly, responsible and humble. He is all that, and more. His calm unflappable personality is invaluable at Fouse. Whatever each day may hold, Ken handles it quickly, effectively, professionally and with a smile. We would love to shower Ken with thank you cards made by the students. Please have your student make a thank you card and give it to their teacher by Wednesday, May 23rd. They will collected and given to Ken as a small token of saying thank you for his dedication to Fouse. We are going to miss Ken but wish him well in all his future endeavors.

What an exciting, emotional time for our 5th grade students...the end of their last year at Fouse! As the year comes to an end, there are a few dates that we would like to bring to the attention of all 5th grade parents:

The PTO is seeking a Co-Chair for the 5th Grade Sign Committee for next school year.
