Book Fair, May 11-14
The annual Spring Book Fair is scheduled for May 11-14, 8:50am – 3:45pm in the Fouse library. Everyone is invited to come by and peruse the wide selection of Scholastic books at great prices. Students are welcome to bring money to school and make purchases during the school day. The book fair is a favorite for our Fouse foxes, and a great way to encourage reading while supporting the school!

Upcoming Events for 5th Grade Parents
Student Celebration Posters: Each year, the fifth grade parents make a poster of their child, send it into school and a few volunteers go in early on the last day of school to place them in the ground around the front of the school. We would like to do this again this year and want to ensure that each child has a poster.
A few guidelines to follow:
5th Grade Concert: The annual 5th Grade Concert will be held On Thursday, May 14 at 7:00pm in the Fouse gymnasium. Our 5th graders have been working hard all year to prepare for this performance. Attendance is optional, but highly encouraged. Student participants should arrive by 6:45 to warm up and prepare. We can’t wait to see what they’ve prepared for us! Any questions should be directed to Mrs. Stout firstname.lastname@example.org.
5th Grade Pool Party: Each year the Fouse PTO hosts an end-of-year pool party for our departing 5th graders. The event will be during the school day on Friday, May 15, at the Watering Hole (at the Westerville Community Center). Check your child’s folder for additional information.
Last Day of School: May 21st
12:00 – Picnic on the Lawn. Parents are invited! Details to come.
3:15 – Clap Out! Bring the tissues!
