Meet & Greet with Dr. Kellogg, February 3
Join us on February 3 at 7:00pm for a very special visit from WCS Superintendent, Dr. John Kellogg. Dr. Kellogg will give a brief overview of District Strategic Initiatives, and then offer a Q&A period for discussion. The meet & greet will follow our regularly scheduled PTO meeting.
This is a great opportunity to learn about the strategic vision for the district (and Fouse), get your questions answered, and to show Dr. Kellogg know how passionate our Fouse families are about our school! https://www.facebook.com/events/603866693100977/
Winter Box Tops Contest Has Begun!
All students received a Box Tops contest flier and a labeled sandwich baggie to help easily collect and submit the Box Tops you've been saving. The class in each grade who collects the most Box Tops will receive a fun surprise, compliments of the PTO! The contest runs now through end of day, Wednesday, 2/24. Please review the contest flier for all details.
Also, if you're looking for a way to get some additional Box Tops, Giant Eagle is currently running a promotion through 2/5. This promotion involves taking a photo of your receipt and submitting it electronically to www.btfe.com/bonusoffer in exchange for 20 eBoxTops. To ensure your student's grade receives credit for these 20 eBoxTops, please print the email confirmation you receive upon submission of your receipt, write your student's name/teacher/grade on the printed email and place it in the bucket in the lobby along with any other Box Tops you're turning in for the contest.
Please contact Casey Knowles (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
