1st Day School Supplies
The PTO is so excited to announce a new partnership with 1st Day School Supplies for the 2018-19 school year. We have collaborated with 1st Day School Supplies to help parents and teachers get the exact supplies needed for next school year without the hassle and aggravation of shopping at Walmart, Target or Staples. 1st Day School Supplies is convenient, easy and hassle free! 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.

Thank You for a Successful Teacher Appreciation Week!
We would like to give a great big "THANK YOU" to all parents who supported our Fouse staff last week by expressing their appreciation for all of their hard work throughout the school year! Also, a special thanks to the parents who created Teacher Appreciation Week signs for our staff members - wow, very impressive! If you have not had a chance to see the signs, please feel free to check them out on our Fouse Elementary PTO Facebook page. There is an album titled "Teacher Appreciation Week Signs 2018" which contains all 43 signs! Fouse 2018 Appreciation Signs.

Student Council - End of Year Activities
As you know, Student Council hosts a quarterly contest to see which classroom can collect the most Pop Tabs. This quarter's Pop Tabs contest endsthis Wednesday, 5/9, so if you have any aluminum Pop Tabs from cans, we encourage you to send them in with your student! The winning classroom will win a special treat! The Pop Tabs are donated to The Ronald McDonald House of Central Ohio, which uses them to raise thousands of dollars for their program every year. For more information about this program, please visit http://rmhc-centralohio.org/get-involved/pop-tabs/. Student Council appreciates your support of this wonderful program!
This Friday, May 11th, Student Council is hosting their final Spirit Day of the school year. The theme is for students to wear their Fouse Spirt Wear!
To wrap up, Student Council will have their end of the year party on Thursday, May 10th, after school. If the weather permits that afternoon, they will also be cleaning the mulch beds on school grounds and picking up trash. Thanks to Student Council for all that you have done for Fouse and our community this year!
