Fouse Elementary Improves Technology Landscape
The Fouse Elementary PTO is excited to announce the purchase of 30 iPads for use by the students at Fouse. The purchase is a result of the successful school Walk-A-Thon in the fall. The devices are expected to be deployed within the next month for immediate use. The purchase will complement the substantial technology improvements made by the District, allowing teachers and staff more flexibility in developing and delivering curriculum to meet the needs of a diverse student population.
Urgent Need for Donated Games/Toys
Our wonderful duty aides are requesting donations of new or gently used board games and decks of cards for immediate use during indoor recess. Winter can be especially difficult for our Foxes as recess, since they are stuck inside, and any diversions are helpful! When spring arrives we could also use playground balls, footballs and soccer balls. Donations can be dropped off at the front office of the school.
Variety Show Preview Night Reschedule
Please note that the preview night for the Variety Show has been changed to Thursday, February 26, 5:30-8:00pm. Preview night is held at Fouse in the gymnasium.

One award will be given for each grade level, with the top award going to the student with the highest score from either grade.

Kindergarten 101 is a presentation by principals, Kindergarten teachers, nurses, and representatives from the district’s Enrollment Center. The purpose of the presentation is to inform parents of the process for enrolling their child for Kindergarten, educating parents on the typical Kindergarten day and what is expected of our Kindergarteners throughout the school year, and to answer questions parents may have about the Kindergarten experience. Parents will have the opportunity to pick-up informational materials, as well as schedule an appointment for registration.
Kindergarten 101 will be held on Tuesday, March 10, 2015, 7:00 p.m., at both Fouse and Hawthorne Elementary Schools with the same presentation being made concurrently at both sites. Free childcare for children two years old and older will be provided on-site by the Westerville Parent Council. Please reserve a childcare spot by contacting Krista Eisenman at 797-5934.
